Planning Process

How We Tailor Your Experience

The first step in planning your special occasion is to schedule a consultation with Chef Martin and Event Manager Jennifer to discuss your vision to ensure the event is truly personalized to your preferences and taste.

We will collaborate to craft a menu tailored to your palate, including any dietary restrictions. We will also discuss the party aesthetics as we plan the table decorations and tableware.

Our team will arrive with the ingredients, cooking equipment, table decorations, and tableware an hour before the event starts to transform your dining area into a full-service restaurant scene.

We take care of the planning, shopping, preparation, and clean-up so you can enjoy your special day and be present with your loved ones.

“Had the pleasure of dining in Chef Martin’s lovely backyard in a small group setting. Absolutely enjoyed the 7 course brunch along with the alcohol pairing. Everything was delicious and we enjoyed the fact that Martin took the time to explain every dish and drink and was very accommodating to any allergies or preferences (I had none, but still nice to have that option). Highly recommend him for any events. Would dine again given the chance.”
