Corporate Merger – Dialog Design

Dialogue Architects Launch Party “When asked to plan a high profile event to celebrate the merger of several leading design firms, I knew that I needed a partner that would provide the expertise but with the ambitious creativity of a young talented team. Savoury Chef was recommended to me by their peers and helped make the process of planning and executing a stylish 300 person event a seamless affair. The menu was beautifully crafted with seasonal, locally sourced and sustainable food options and supported by an exceptional team of professionals. The feedback has been amazing – a big thank you to their dedicated staff.”
Danielle Lindsay Chung, Dialog Design Event Coordinator

The Midas Touch

Our brand and our integrity is of the utmost important to our culture and growth. Let’s market and make gold together.

Sourcing local, seasonal ingredients is our team’s primary source of inspiration; they believe nothing tastes better than market-fresh produce or locally farmed meats, and this ongoing search for the best that BC has to offer drives the continual renewal of all of our menus.

This not only contributes to a positive and nutritional dining experience but it also supports small business, local farmers & suppliers.
