About the restaurant
The Heritage is one of the many classroom/laboratory facilities operated by the Secchia Institute for Culinary Education at Grand Rapids Community College. The restaurant is staffed by students in the culinary programs and is under the direct supervision of Chef and Dining Room Professors.

During lunch, your meal will be prepared and served by first year students. The meals represent International Cuisine with modern and classical touches. In the evening, The Heritage reopens to feature a relaxed atmosphere, more Continental Cuisine, and our second year students will serve and prepare your meal.

The Secchia Institute for Culinary Education restaurants and kitchens are classroom settings. We take pride in them. Our students prepare our meals daily with the finest seasonally available ingredients including freshly baked artisan bread.

The quality of the food is always top of the line. The beef melted in your mouth. The shrimp bisque, delicious. The kitchen forgot to put the blue cheese on my salad & there was little if any dressing on it... it was beautifully arranged though (a work of art!) Oh! the fresh mozzarella appetizer left us wanting more! & the smoked risotto was delicious & a cool experience (how did they do that!) The homemade bread, crusty outside & soft inside; perfect. And as always the flavored butters are a treat. This was the first day for these students, so they were a bit nervous. & we waited a bit for our left overs to come out. But all in all, we love coming here, for the food & the students!

Phenomenal food and superb service! It’s been a while since I had eaten here, and it was a wonderful treat! My long time friend and I both ordered Surf and Turf, with some shrimp cocktail and tuna sashimi for appetizers. It was all very tasty!!😋

My husband and I were in town for his birthday weekend and made a dinner reservation here. It was an amazing experience and the food was delicious. Our server was very kind and attentive. The cocktails were good and pretty strong, they have plenty of signature cocktails to choose from. We ordered the burrata bruschetta and it was so delicious. The tomatoes were very fresh and the burrata was creamy. Highly recommend that appetizer. For our main course I had the braised short rib and it was one of the tastiest foods i’ve eaten. The meat melts in your mouth and the mashed potatoes were creamy and flavorful. My husband got the peppercorn filet mignon and he loved the flavor of the crust and the sauce. Everything exceeded expectations and I would go back just for the short rib. Do not skip out on this spot is you are ever in Holland!
