The specific uses described as “Private event space and culinary showroom” require a variance of use to be included in a C3 commercial district. We will also be discussing an application for a 3-way liquor license for MKPK. Martha Hoover, owner of Patachou, describes this new enterprise as follows:
MKPK (MERIDIAN KESSLER PRIVATE KITCHEN)
EVENT SPACE, PRIVATE KITCHEN, CULINARY SHOWROOM WITH SAME ATTENTION TO DETAIL, QUALITY AND HOSPITALITY THAT SETS STAFF AND PRODUCT OF PATACHOU APART
MKPK is located in the original space occupied by Cafe Patachou from 1989 until four years ago when the cafe relocated to “the corner”. MKPK is a chef and kitchen inspired private event space and culinary showroom. MKPK offers flexible private entertaining space centered around an open kitchen visible from a relaxed yet refined dining space. Perfect for both personal or professional entertaining needs including baby or wedding showers, rehearsal dinners, small upscale weddings, adult birthday or cocktail parties, corporate events ranging from holiday get togethers, board of director meetings or team building exercises , and small group fundraising events. MKPK’s staff will customize menus to meet the client’s vision and budget. The event space will have at its core an exceptional food based experience with custom menus and an on-site chef cooking in real time. Itsthe perfect at-home experience without the imperfect pre or post party hassles. MKPK will accommodate 50 people for sit-down events, and up to 75 for stand-up events. A full bar is necessary for the economic operation of this concept.
MKPK is not a restaurant with set open/close hours opened to the public. MKPK is not a bar. MKPK is a unique business that is only open for customer’s private events whether they be personal life-cycle events or corporate business related events.
Neighbors are encouraged to attend and hear the proposal and share their opinions!
