What are the Perks to Having a Special Event at a Fine Dining Restaurant?

There are many special events worth celebrating. Whether it be a bar mitzvah, a baby shower, or a cocktail party, you probably want the event to be perfect. While simply having loved ones attend is sometimes enough, the food, venue, drinks, and atmosphere also matter. And here at Chima Steakhouse, your local fine dining restaurant, we have all of these extra components. When you go with us for your private events in Fort Lauderdale, Tyson’s Corner, Charlotte, or Philadelphia, you don’t have to worry about anything. We take care of everything for you. And the best part is that everything is all in one place. The food, drinks, ambiance, and guests. What more could anyone ask for? To learn more about what Chima Steakhouse can offer your special event or cocktail party, see below!

Catering is In-House

Something that’s required at each event is contacting a caterer, picking the food you want to serve, and planning everything around that. Once this gets done, you still have to arrange where the food will be set-up at the venue. Sometimes, figuring out all of this is what makes planning the event fun. But other times, there’s nothing better than having everything taken care of for you. And it’s even nicer to have everything handled by one person or company. Here at Chima Steakhouse, our team handles everything from the food preparation to the food set-up. You don’t need to juggle calling multiple companies. Instead, you can sit back, relax, and enjoy your cocktail party. Our team also works closely with you to find the perfect meal for your guests. Whether you want seafood, steak, or a combination of the two, we can make your vision a reality. We also have an extensive dessert menu, one of our personal favorites being the chocolate coconut lava cake.

Ambiance Matters

One thing we take into consideration when we plan an event, such as a cocktail party or baby shower, is the ambiance. We want our party to be somewhere that is going to be appropriate for the occasion. Some events just need a more private and upscale environment. You wouldn’t host a cocktail party or reception at the park, but a fine dining restaurant would make a reliable and ideal atmosphere. Here at Chima Steakhouse, you can expect your private events in Fort Lauderdale, Tyson’s Corner, Charlotte, and Philadelphia to have your ideal ambiance. We can work with you to set up your event and create the perfect setting.
