Renaissance Room

The Renaissance Room is Lane's on-campus, student-operated restaurant.

The Renaissance Room

The Renaissance Room is an American Bistro-style restaurant featuring contemporary and classic cuisine from around the country in a modern setting.

We open our restaurant lab to the public for lunch in the Spring term, offering the finest and freshest Pacific Northwest and US regional delicacies. Fall and Winter term are dedicated to student proficiency development, with a fast-paced delivery and practice format. Students are mentored with a highly effective building block approach to learning and application in a technical professional field that has a strong demand for qualified employees.

Our goal is to source foods locally when the curriculum-driven menu items make that possible. Student servers work alongside employees and mentors to provide friendly courteous service in a real-time setting. All of the dishes are prepared in the student operated kitchen, visible from the dining room and outside the restaurant.

The Culinary Arts and Baking & Pastry Programs at Lane Community College are offering one-year Certificate programs that match the food service industry's current dynamics.

This classroom lab was developed for culinary students to practice, refine and showcase their industry skills. Throughout the academic year we develop their abilities preparing a range of dishes, building our culinary skills and expanding our range of understanding in the field, leading to this capstone restaurant class.

We are open Tuesdays-Fridays, April 16 to May 31, 2024.

About Us

The Renaissance Room offers valuable restaurant experience for culinary students in a real-time laboratory setting. The Spring term is a focused area of restaurant operations in a real time setting, with table service as an element.

The Renaissance Room menu changes regularly to feature the current focus of study. We offer local, seasonal, and sustainable cuisine whenever possible. We have chosen to continue the format of a $16.00 set price for our 3 course meal featuring your choice of soup or salad, a variety of entrees, and dessert.

Our seating is quite limited - we recommend reservations, but are happy to accommodate walk-in guests if there is space available.
