From conceptualization and planning to deal structuring and vendor procurement, we curate successful operations that serve as a true destination for meals and entertainment.

Thoughtful Restaurant Curation. High quality chefs or restaurant partners become the differentiator, drivingfoot traffic, surrounding retail and office rents, occupancy, and ADR for a real estate owner or developer. We manage the process from initial financial analysis to local market due-diligence to chef procurement to pair the best restaurant concept with top real estate.

Music, Education & Special Events Procurement. Consumers are looking for memorable and fresh experiences that offer blends of entertainment, learning and F&B. Our experts leverage our top entertainment and culinary talent network to create discerning, collaborative events such as food and music pairings, sporting events and suite programs, product launches and re-launches, grand openings, pop-ups, festivals and more.
