North Island College students are teaming up with Crown Isle to bring you a unique new dining opportunity.

Hospitality students are joining forces with Chef Jonathan Frazier and The Park at Crown Isle to create a pop-up restaurant.

It will offer patrons a menu of delicious, locally-prepared food that is only available for a short time.

This is the second time NIC students have offered a pop-up restaurant in partnership with Crown Isle.

Tourism and Hospitality Instructor, Pedro Caraballo Acosta, says the pop-up model provides a rare opportunity for students to apply their learning and work with a world-class chef.

“Students can sharpen their skills in an applied environment with real, paying customers,” said Caraballo Acosta. “It’s a great way to get industry exposure and get noticed by potential employers.”

The pop-up restaurant will be open for dinner from 5:30-8:00pm on Thursdays and Fridays starting Wednesday until March 6th and NIC says because seats are limited and fill up quickly, it’s recommended that you reserve early by emailing or calling 250-334-5292.
