Evenings at Masseria, whether a private gathering or event, are available through several of our warm and welcoming spaces, each with a distinct style and appeal that allows for individualized dining and entertaining options. Paying homage to the subdued glamour of coastal European cities, Masseria delivers a serene and sophisticated interior with culinary offerings that lend to a sensual evening. Just ask, and all can be accommodated. For food and beverage minimums and customization preferences, please contact Masseria’s talented events team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
DINNER PARTIES (MORE THAN 6)
For dinners of 7 to 12 guests, Masseria offers a 4 or 5 course tasting menu with the choice of the Masseria Selection Menu or the Chef’s Premium Tasting Selection Menu. For such events, Masseria suggests a coursed wine pairing or bottle selections from boutique vintners chosen by our Advanced Sommelier, David Kurka. The Masseria team can work with you on optional pre-dinner cocktails and passed canapés based on your preferences. Please note that we are only able to accommodate parties larger than 6 Tuesday through Thursday.
FULL RESTAURANT TAKE OVER
We welcome groups to exclusively reserve the chic and cosmopolitan enclave of Masseria. Standing receptions of up to 150 guests, or a seated occasion of up to 80 guests, can be achieved throughout the entire landscape of the restaurant. The outdoor lounge and pergola space allow groups to mingle under the open sky while imbibing on innovative cocktails and puffing on premium cigars. A variety of culinary options include an Italian inspired menu of passed hors d’oeuvres and a tasting menu to please the stylish approach of the host that evening.
Reserve the Chef’s Table for parties up to 6 guests for a sanctuary that is mere inches from the bustling open kitchen that gleams with high-end stainless steel and a sea of aqua-glazed subway tiles. A rustic wood masseria farmhouse table serves as the chef’s table where guests will be treated to modern interpretations of cherished dishes and authentic favorites from chef Nicholas Stefanelli’s heritage that so passionately embraces provenance and taste.
For a full tasting menu experience with exclusive use of the sleek outdoor bar, Masseria’s Pergola, available year round, accommodates up to 30 guests. Introduce your evening with cocktails and passed canapés before the vibrant next act: dinner. The seating of guests brings the arrival of Masseria’s coastal Italian fare under the retractable roof and zig zagging string of lights that add to the romantic ambiance. Rugged wood tabletops, iconic Wishbone Chairs, and refined benches sit atop a stunning expanse of colorful Mediterranean tile that lends to the al fresco vibe.
Our lush and comfortable courtyard can be reserved in half or quarter for a casual cocktail party or intimate relaxed gathering of friends. Ornamental grasses, aromatic herbs, and splashes of bright wildflowers delineate the various seating areas. Modern deep blue sectional sofas provide comfortable seating to indulge in a selection of Masseria’s bar bites, drinks, and rotating cigar menu. Equipped with heaters and light blankets for cooler weather, and low Mendocino fire tables, the courtyard offers open-air European ambiance, three-quarters of the year.
