Boat Street Kitchen & Bistro





The PANTRY is a casual kitchen space that we often use for cooking classes.  This space is private and is suitable for casual events such as work meetings, informal shower events, and informal brunch events.

Events booked in the Pantry will be organized as well as possible and will have the same flowers and table settings as the Boat Street dining rooms.  The room will hold up to 24 individuals - using miscellaneous chairs, stools, stainless work tables and wooden tables. Make sure that you are satisfied with this arrangement before you finalize your event.  If you like, please come and see it first hand.

Private Pantry event food is served buffet style by a chef/server who will make dishes, provide drinks, answer questions, and clear dishes.  However, service is limited and guests are expected to serve themselves.  If you need a higher level of service, please ask.  A server may be available for an additional fee.


Available Event Start Times:  Food events must start between 11am and 1pm and are expected to last no more than 2 ½ hours.  If more time is needed, there will be a charge of $75/hour. 

Meeting Start Times:  Meeting events may start anytime after 10am, are expected to last no more than 5 hours, and must conclude by 4 pm.  No impromptu service will be available.  Any food and beverages must be arranged in advance.

Minimum Charge for Food and Beverage:  There is a minimum food and beverage cost of $300, or  a minimum charge of $25/person plus drinks, whichever is greater, per event.

Minimum Charge for Meeting Space:  There is a minimum charge of $200 or $15/person, whichever is greater, for meeting space for up to 5 hours.  If a meal is served, the cost will be in addition to that of the meeting space.
