Parkway has garnered a reputation that’s hard to shake — known for our penchant for locally-sourced ingredients, our choosiness when it comes to quality and our upscale comfort foods. But when we’re not busy serving Kansas City as a restaurant, lounge and social hub, we’re playing host to privately catered events like yours.
Let Us Host. And Cook.
Yes, we could cater your event anywhere. But why wouldn’t you host your event somewhere that has a projector screen, a sound system, live entertainment capabilities with music equipment and a staffed-and-stocked bar in addition to our acclaimed kitchen? And isn’t it important that you hold your event somewhere that’s as beautiful as it is practical and convenient?
With on-site catering in the Scarlet Room at Parkway, our iconic event space and lounge, we’ll take care of everything — from a memorable meal, to the space, to cleanup.
- The Parkway favorites you love from our restaurant, served at your important event
- Attentive servers and bartenders to look after your guests so you can relax and enjoy
- A welcoming space, dishes, tables, linens, beverages and alcohol, and all the serving equipment
More than Just a Restaurant
One of our favorite things about providing on-site catering at Parkway is the chance to work with our guests to create something one-of-a-kind. Unlike traditional catering companies in Kansas City, Parkway encourages creative freedom, so that your menu fits your event.
Our in-house catering menus can accommodate whatever you’d like to serve, including:
This is by no means an exhaustive list of what we could serve you and your guests, but some guest favorites included in our package options for catering on site include:
- Our Parkway Salad with warm cornbread croutons
- The pepper jack-stuffed Tater Tots everyone asks about
- KC Strips finished in our wood-fired oven
- Danish Baby Back Ribs in our house-made BBQ sauce
- Rustic Mashed Potatoes
- Rustic Oven-Grilled Salmon
- Warm Cast Iron Brownies topped with Tillamook vanilla ice cream, caramel syrup and nuts
- And much more
Again — contact us to work out an on-site catering menu that best suits your needs. We’re happy to accommodate you however we’re able.
