Chefs' Night Off Events

What We Do
Catering/Private Events/Weddings/Corporate Events/Parties

Chefs’ Night Off started as an ongoing series of “pirate” dinners, conceptualized and executed by cooks and bartenders from Indianapolis’ most respected restaurants. This was an opportunity to showcase the developing talents of Indy’s culinary scene and locally owned restaurants and bars with a focus on slow food. The idea is to help cultivate Indy’s food scene and community. To get cooks working with other cooks exchanging ideas, having fun, and talking shit.  That idea has now since grown into multiple markets, cross pollinating talent from many cities.

We facilitate a creative think tank for America’s culinary and bar talent. The chefs interact with the guests to create a dining experience like no other. There is no “razzle dazzle,” and no unnecessary frills. Just the people who put the flame to the pan breaking loose for one night and bringing to life their cuisines, their way.

Private Events/Weddings:  From in home culinary demonstrations and private meals to weddings Chefs Night Off can provide you with a culinary experience unlike any other.  We work with every client to make certain they and their guests have the best experience possible.  Tired of bacon wrapped asparagus and a Caprese salad at your events?  So are we.  We will work with local farms and farmers to provide you and your guests with the highest quality, locally and ethically sourced product available.

Eco friendly/Sustainable weddings:  Allow us to help you plan your special day while keeping the environment and your budget in mind.

Due to the individual and unique nature of our events we do not offer “packages”.  Instead we prefer to tailor the experience to our clients needs and budget.
