What chef will conduct my tasting?
The chef for your event will be selected from our roster of talented event chefs. The chef for your event will be confirmed a week from the event date, and if requested a biography can be provided by your event coordinator. Specific chef requests from our company portfolio can be accommodated but will be subject to availability and may increase the price of the demo fee.
What is the recommended set up for my chef demonstration event?
Due to the interactive nature of the event, we recommend a classroom style or U-shape set up of the space. Your event coordinator would be happy to discuss the details of the set up with you in detail upon booking.
Is there a fee to rent the space, and a minimum spend requirement?
Use of the Arcadian Studio is subject to a rental fee plus a minimum spend requirement for food & beverage. If the minimum spend is not met, the difference will appear as additional room rental fee on the final bill. Please see the event package for the minimum spend breakdown.
Can I rent the studio, but not have a chef demo?
Yes, we are happy to host an event in the studio with no demo component. For a standing reception the capacity is 90 guests. For a seated event, the capacity is 40.
Who would my onsite contact be for the event?
An Oliver & Bonacini events manager will be available onsite as a go to throughout to the event.
