private parties + special events

our second-floor private event space draws from the warm, intimate design of avec’s main dining room, and evokes the feeling of a rustic mediterranean wine cave.

avec’s second floor event space is able to host up to 40 guests seated or up to 60 guests for a standing reception. for smaller groups, the space can be divided into a small, private room for with seating for 12 guests, and a semi-private space for up to 20 seated.

all of our event menus feature seasonally-inspired shared plates served family style crafted by avec’s executive chef, paul kahan, and chef de cuisine, perry hendrix. see here for sample menus for your consideration.
