Our Kitchen


With state-of-the-art kitchen facilities on site, we offer packages with both Paramount Events and Truffleberry Market to meet your unique catering needs.


Our event kitchen offers a seasonal & elevated culinary program by utilizing our on-site greenhouse and talents from our chefs with Michelin Star restaurant experience. Using ingredients and produce to prepare each dish just steps from its point of service, our talented culinary team provides innovative and fresh cuisine for each occasion.

Our Greenhouse


The Lakewood’s all natural and fresh cuisine is largely sourced from our on-site greenhouse. With diverse ingredients and spices growing just around the corner, each event at The Lakewood is provided with year-round fresh produce unrestrained by Chicago’s infamous climate.  Our fresh ingredients allow us to take your custom menu to the next level and create an experience beyond what is expected in food and event service.

Stellar Service


The experience is always our number one priority. From the beginning, clients are given full access to a dedicated team of event planning and culinary experts. Using your personal tastes and inspirations, our team works on turning our blank space into your perfectly customized venue.


Our extensively trained service staff ensures all runs smoothly during the event itself. Trained directly on-site, staff at The Lakewood is never outsourced and always held to a professional standard dedicated exclusively to your event.

We are no longer booking events and will be closing our doors.
