Prepped as a working educational lab, The Red Room is unique for many reasons. Most notably, aside from the restaurant opening its doors to the public, The Red Room is serviced by Collin College’s Dining Room Service and A La Carte Cooking classes.
This combination allows Collin College students in the Dining Room Service class to support the front-of-the-house restaurant management experience while the A La Carte Cooking students prepare, cook and expedite food in the back-of-the-house.
Meanwhile, students in both classes learn the importance of communication between the dining room and kitchen and how to market the restaurant and staff while delivering exceptional service.
Hours of Service on Spring 2015 :
Dinner seating is from 6:00 pm -8:00 pm (open during selected Wednesdays only)

Press Release for Red Room Exhibition Spring 2015
Socially Minded’ is an exhibit displaying the works of Professor Carver, Associate in Fine Arts, and Katie Price, a current Fine Arts student at Collin. These two series address disturbing or contradictory aspects of American Culture.
Target Series / A. Eilene Carver
This series reflects the random acts of violence that have become all too commonplace. It would be naïve to suggest there are simple solutions to the issue of gun control in such a diverse society. However, limited reforms to current gun laws would save lives; more thorough background checks, limited availability of high capacity clips & monitoring of on-line gun sales. The stakes are too high to ignore the problem. If nothing is done, we are all possible targets. http://houstoncarverfineart.com/
Cultural Contradictions / Katie Price In these pieces I wanted to address the unnoticed ironies that happen every day in American culture. The artwork is meant to be slightly humorous, while still provoking thought. The pieces represent three key aspects of society: technology, food, and consumerism. The inspiration came from an Instagram picture of a girl waving a flag on the Fourth of July where the words "Made in China" we're stamped on the pole. After seeing the photo it was impossible to stop noticing other ironies.
Current exhibition features the work of Associate Professor of Art, Eilene Carver and Katie Price, a second year Collin Art Student.
