Bespoke Event Space / Tailored Dining Experience

The Dining Studio Event Space offers dining and cooking as entertainment, where you can actually chat with the chefs and watch them perfect their craft. Truly the first, and only, Private Dining space in the Twin Cities. Since 2007 we have operated a one of a kind dining room unassociated or connected with a restaurant, bar or hotel. Located in the Waterbury Building, a former warehouse in NE Minneapolis, we reserve the front half of our catering kitchen for in-house dinner service. The Dining Studio is a 1,200 square foot open floor plan that allows for numerous seating configurations. The room has a full bar, open kitchen seating for up to twelve guests, and a series of six-foot rounds and rectangular banquet tables that can be configured in a variety of ways. We even have a custom built 20 foot long farm table. The studio is a flexible space for both formal and informal events of up to fifty guests.

Guests truly have the entire place to their own. You can help plan the entire menu and have a restaurant dining room solely for you and your guests! Both our event planners, and foH service staff have the experience to bring your vision to life in this very adaptable setting.

The Food

Create Catering offers restaurant-quality food and service for all event types. We handcraft all of our menus for each client using local, seasonal and sustainable goods whenever we can get our hands on them (we have forged farmer-chef relations for 15 years). We have won numerous awards for our food over the years and we use that same formula for all of our event menus. We offer a unique approach by working within the vision of our clients to create a dining and entertaining experience unmatched by other caterers.

Where else can you interact with chefs, select unique wines from our curated list, choose from our regional beer selection, or order craft cocktails with a customized menu solely for you and your guests?

Interactive Dinners

Unique to create are our “interactive” events. Perfect for more intimate groups and small team building corporate events, these events engage our clients with hands on participation in the culinary process. If you have a group of 12 or less; we can offer sushi bar-style dining around the open kitchen. Set in a chef’s table type environment you are right there in the kitchen with the chef as he creates a truly memorable dining experience.
