I can't give away the entire experience but I can recommend this date idea to anyone who loves food, and people who enjoy a unique experience. This is truly a date night idea you won't forget any time soon!
Plan Ahead You are going to want to probably plan ahead for this date especially if The Date night is a important date to you. Usually you can call 1 - 3 days ahead of time and you should be able to reserve the Chef's Table. The Chef's table is available at all three locations locally. Downtown Indianapolis, Castleton (free parking available), and Greenwood (free parking available)
So we know two people in love or just dating are usually looking for a unique date night ideas that won't necessarily break the bank at the same time. Well we may have found the perfect date night spot. This is perfect outing for just two; a double date if you are inclined. That date is at Buca di Beppo's at the Chefs table.
The Experience So you will be sitting at a table in the kitchen where all the action is going to be happening. You will see the cooks expertly prepare food for the entire front of house (restaurant lingo for dining area). You will still have top notch service from a server whom you will make your order from. If you are super lucky the chef may bring you over some samples of various creations they are cooking up. But I can't promise that will happen, but you should expect to receive some banter from the staff and see the inner workings of a busy kitchen.
The Back Story: Lights Out Entertainment was recently tasked with a finding the perfect place for a client for a rehearsal dinner location. The Groom's parents only had a few criteria, 1. Italian Food or Italian like food, 2. Be able to accommodate at least 85 people privately, 3. Reasonably Priced. Since, I remembered recently working with Roxann Leija for another event I figured I should give her a shout. She invited me to stop in and take a tour of Buca Di Beppo and grab some additional information to give to the couple. Below is some more information about Wedding Rehearsal Dinners at Buca. To contact Roxann for your rehearsal dinner. You can email her or give her a call.
