The Commons Dining Facility, located at the Smithsonian-Mason School of Conservation in Front Royal VA, features a grill, flatbread pizza station, salad bar, daily entree, and dessert station. 

Given the small size of this location, students and faculty create personal connections with the dining staff, and the chef works closely with students to provide a delicious, residential culinary experience. What the Commons lacks in size, it makes up for in personalized dining and attention to each customer's individual needs. Chefs have the capacity to saute to order, customize pho bowls, or personalize flatbread pizza. 

With a clientele that is particularly focused on sustainability and animal welfare, we offer a robust variety of vegetarian and vegan offerings on a daily basis. Guests can enjoy the expansive view through large windows, or they may take their meal outside on the patio.
