Dinner Parties

ReMARKable Palate specializes in Dinner Parties and special home events. We can prepare your sit down dinner party for 2 to 20 people, and let you take all the credit, or stay on and serve the meal as your private chefs! We can do a buffet style setup for larger groups, or bring along servers and bartenders as necessary for your event. Don't lift a finger!

Special Occasions

Consider a one-of-a-kind Gift Certificate for any special occasion:


Marriage Proposals, anniversary or birthday celebrations, Mother’s Day gifts, Father’s Day gifts, Valentine’s Day Romantic Dinners, Picnics, Barbecues, Thanksgiving celebrations, or holiday parties.

Variety of Cuisines

Ethnic themed menus are a specialty. Ever wanted to host a Greek dinner, or Japanese menu, or Moroccan feast? We also specialize in Vietnamese, Thai, Umbrian, Tuscan, Spanish cuisines, as well as Classical French cuisine and Farm to Table American.

Cancellation Policy on scheduled events

(Dinner Parties/Cooking Lessons)

Chef Mark will honor all scheduled events. In the event of a true medical emergency that prevents him from honoring his word, Chef Mark will replace himself with another chef, or if you prefer, reschedule the event.

If you need to reschedule or cancel, here are the terms: 

  • Deposits made are non-refundable.

  • Once you have scheduled a date and received a booking confirmation, rescheduling is allowed free of charge with at least 3 weeks notice prior to your booked date, subject to Chef Mark’s availability.

  • Rescheduling between 10 – 21 days prior to your booked date will incur a 50% fee (remainder will be applied towards a future booking).

  • No rescheduling will be allowed within 10 days of your booked date.

  • Please Note: During the COVID-19 Crisis, Chef Mark is waiving the forgoing rescheduling requirements. Deposits are still non-refundable, and Chef Mark will reschedule events as appropriate for both parties and according to the conditions in New York/NJ/CT at the time.
