Nestled in the back of Omni Montelucia’s sprawling 32 acres sits a quiet building behind a quaint gate. It can be easily overlooked to anyone passing by but to those who take the moment to stop, peer in or even open the gate will find a rare-treat. It can be described as a hidden-oasis, a dining room of sorts, a patio-space and a garden integrated into one but to those who experience it in its full, shining glory during an event or a wedding they will describe it differently.
The event-goers will describe it for what it is; Chef’s Kitchen, a place to gather, a place to foster and grow relationships, and a place to celebrate and enjoy the local beauty of the space around you. The hidden gem which sits quiet from the front is teaming with activity and events throughout the week which occur behind its walls. Upon entering its gate you’re greeted by a fountain which slowly sets the ambiance with its steady stream of flowing water. Every direction you look, the walkways are decorated with an abundance of flora, which provides a soothing, fresh garden scent. Surrounded by a seasonal garden, the space is full of citrus trees and herbs such as sage, rosemary, basil, cilantro and a variety of exotic mints. When the custom Spanish doorways are drawn, open natural light and aroma spills into the space from the surrounding garden.
As an interactive kitchen this space is host to a number of unique opportunities for entertainment whether it’s a live cooking demonstration, a personal dining experience, or even host to a wedding or proposal. Event possibilities are endless in this inspiring indoor and outdoor venue and can be tailored to any experience, wish, want or need.
Allow our culinary team to provide you with an intimate dining experience perfect for your catering or wedding event. Chef's Kitchen is a unique space which is approximately 2,200 square-feet and includes an outdoor patio with lush herb garden and a private kitchen featuring custom millwork, hammered brass finishes and Sub-Zero & Wolf appliances.
Chef's kitchen is also host to our Chef's Kitchen Dinner Series, where you may experience one-of-a-kind culinary events showcasing visiting distilleries and winemakers from across the country. Each event is uniquely different and invites guests to indulge in the best and most flavorful ingredients grown locally. Click here to view upcoming events.
