The Reviews Are In
We Think Local.
We work hard to shop local, bringing the freshest, most
ethically acquired ingredients to our dishes. We are proud to support local small businesses throughout Virginia and Maryland, which not only provides you with the freshest organic produce, but also contributes to
local farming. As you take a bite of your fresh Dutch
apple pie, know its ingredients were grown just up the road from where you’re seated.
We avoid wasting food and seek out creative ways to infuse ingredients in our cuisine. Our chefs’ masterful creations assure you’ll clean your plate, so that’s a plus.
You Might Call Us Pioneers
We’re serious about sustainable innovation, which translates to Main Event’s insatiable hunger to be better stewards of our culinary resources. It boils down to better events, better cuisine, and a better world.
On the Mission to Plant-based
Main Event’s inventive meatless offerings bring flavor, texture and beauty to guests. With so many delicious, healthy and creative options available, plant-based dishes are worth considering for your next gathering – your meatless eaters will thank you, and you just may convert your other guests as well!
For a myriad of reasons, some of your guests might prefer meatless options. Our talented Main Event chefs have developed tantalizing plant-based menu items that not only provide more wholesome, balanced meals, but reduce carbon emissions, animal feed and waste runoff pollutants, as well as other environmental benefits. It’s a delicious new dining experience of natural umami, utilizing locally grown and sustainably grown plants to drive the menu.
