Gourmondo launched their summer menu with a tasting event at Marian Built Loft in Ballard. I love event spaces and had been wanting to visit this one for awhile! The space can accommodate up to 45 people. Guests can bring their own food and beverage or work with staff to secure a private chef or preferred caterer, like Gourmondo. The space is beautiful and I love the industrial touches like the boat motors and pipes, combined with modern accents. Flowers for the event were provided by Juniper Flowers and they were gorgeous!
Gourmondo is well known for their box lunches and catering options. My Seattle Foodie Podcast co-host Nelson Lau and I interviewed CEO Alissa Leinonen earlier this year. If you want to hear Gourmondo’s origin story and their commitment to their guests, workers, and community, give it a listen.
