Book our historic Chef's private library for parties of 6-22 guests.
The historic library with a working fireplace has awesome views of our spectacular garden and is a true gem. It is a romantic, intimate setting that was restored in 2000 to bring it back to its original glory when it was first built in 1787. Perfect for dinners and business seminars, it is truly a one of a kind room in Philadelphia.

We cater all events ourselves, offering unique menus designed by Chef Joncarl. He works with each client to make a meal that will be a culinary highlight of the day. Using ingredients from local farmers, his dedication to offering the top of the line affordable menus to our clients is unmatched by any other caterer. His expertise in many different styles of cooking allows him to custom design every single event. No two parties are ever the same and your guests will know the difference. He is flexible to work with every budget.
