Offering a new angle on private dining in Columbus, The Culinary Table has taken guests issues with private dining in overbooked, understaffed restaurants a thing of the past. Here at The Culinary Table we are able to devote our full attention to any corporate event that books with us.

Our focus lies in booking board meetings, networking receptions, and company breakfast, lunches and dinners.  With our unique venue we are also able to offer private cooking demos, and cooking classes - our Lunch and Learn program has been a big success in companies wanting to promote team-building within their employees.

We will also be hosting various wine and beer and cheese tastings to support other businesses in the area and create a unique event.  Keep a look out for upcoming beer and wine tastings.

To book your corporate event ask for EJ, Corporate Event Manager.


TasteCasting Event - A Wonderful Night

Tonight the Columbus TasteCaster's joined us for a reception.  They learned about The Culinary Table, and Bellisari's Catering and then tweeted their findings creating awareness through all their social media platforms.  We learned how social media works and met some really nice people.

Tonight everyone enjoyed Mozzarella Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms, Stilton Tarts with Cranberry Chutney, Smoked Trout on Cucumber Rounds and a food demonstration where the chef made Braised Pork Carnitas.  The evening ended with homemade Toasted Sesame Ice Cream.
