MCC Sage Student Bistro reopens after summer renovation


OMAHA, Neb. — Metropolitan Community College’s Sage Student Bistro is showing off its new look after undergoing renovations this summer. The remodel of the front of the house strengthens the teaching and learning environment while extending physical capacity for students and guests. The redesign improves curriculum with improvements in private dining, bar and beverage, point-of-sale, dining room service and more. The renovations also allow for more students to partake in CHRM 2980 Student Manager, a course that utilizes the bistro. 


The Sage Student Bistro is located inside the Institute for the Culinary Arts on the College’s Fort Omaha Campus, 32nd Street and Sorensen Parkway. The bistro operates as a customer-focused classroom providing MCC culinary and hospitality students an opportunity to refine their culinary, bakery, service and supervisory skills in a setting where the element of time is as important as the food and service. 


“This is my third class in the Sage Student Bistro, but my first in the remodeled space. The new look is so wonderful. Students in each class now have dedicated space for learning inside the restaurant environment. Customers seem to love it as well. I feel very lucky to be at a school that pays such great attention to the needs of its students and guests,” said Taylor Tylkowski, a student manager at MCC. 


“I love the new wine room. It is quiet, private and well-outfitted for use as a classroom and private dining area. It is a great leap forward,” said Jaime Ishii, MCC instructor.


The bistro is open Monday through Thursday for lunch, 11 a.m.-1 p.m., and for dinner 6-8 p.m. during College quarters. Guests are advised to check dates of operation at Reservations can be made for dinner by calling 531-MCC-2328 or visiting
