Recently we participated in an amazing after-hours cocktail reception at the iconic Nat Sherman Townhouse. Located just a few blocks from Grand Central Station, this unique venue offered the perfect setting for international guests who were in town attending an industry convention to celebrate the leading hotels of the world. The venue was stylish and intimate, providing the cigar-loving visitors with a quintessential New York setting at one of the city’s beloved landmarks.
We created custom hors d’oeuvres inspired by dishes from the client’s favorite restaurant, L’Apertitif in Hawaii. Our delicious passed items included coconut shrimp with mango aioli, smoked eggplant caviar tartlets and a salmon cornet with guacamole. What complimented the delectable fare? House-made Hemingway Old Fashions and an exclusive collaboration cigar (launched the night of the event)!
We loved working on this custom event and would be delighted to partner with you at an interesting venue of your choosing, be it classic or modern, this holiday season or in the new year. Contact us at 212.625.8270 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to get started!
'tis the season.. at Radio City!
It’s officially that time of year again! We are very excited to return to Radio City this holiday season to celebrate the spirit and bring our own holiday cheer through our amazing food. Our kitchen elves have been hard at work creating special treats to make sure this is one season their stomachs won’t forget. Yesterday was kickoff day and we’re sharing some of our favorites below.
Green salad includes arugula, dried cherries, candied pecans and aged Gouda with a whole grain mustard vinaigrette.
We came up with a fresh take on penne pasta using arugula and a zesty lemon sauce. Second helpings? Yes, please!
It just wouldn’t be the holidays without hot chocolate and this year we up the ante on everyone’s favorite drink with an entire bar complete with peppermint, caramels and mini marshmallows galore!
Holiday cookies included Christmas trees with sprinkles; butter cookies shaped as stars and peppermint swirls!
With an amazing spread even Santa would approve, the holidays have truly come to life at Radio City Music Hall and we’re so happy to be a part of it.
Do you need a delicious assortment for your party this year? We would love to help you customize the perfect holiday menu. Call us at 212.625.8270 or email email@example.com for more information.
Chesapeake Bay takes over Landmarc for a night!
Wedding season is always in full swing here at Benchmarc Events and we love it, especially when we get to help bring a groom’s hometown vision to life. No matter where you are in the world, home is never too far away. But if you aren’t making it there for your big day, what better way to kick off your wedding weekend then with a fun hometown themed rehearsal dinner!
For one amazing couples vision, that was bringing everything they loved about Maryland to the Big Apple. We worked intimately with the groom and his family on every detail and transformed Landmarc [at the Time Warner Center] to make their Chesapeake Bay inspired dream come true. Think ceramic crabs, lots and lots of Old Bay seasoning and a traditional crab cake family recipe that knocked the socks off guests. Our chefs were honored to execute the seaside themed menu. All of these elements combined made this lovely couple and their families, feel like they were in their own backyard and never left the Old Line State.
Do you have a particular vision in mind for your wedding day? Let us know and we would be honored to help make your special day one to remember. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 212.625.8270 to get started!
On your mark.. get set… time to celebrate the ING NYC Marathon!
The first Sunday in November can only mean one thing….the ING NYC Marathon! We were lucky enough to help Asics celebrate pre-race with a carb loading party at Landmarc (Time Warner Center). Runners arrived, dropped their bags off; then made their way to get in a morning run in Central Park. While they were gone we worked with our chefs and put the finishing touches on their buffet breakfast. Upon their return the runners were greeted with a delicious array of bagels, lox, house-made granola stations and omelets made to order! Following a big meal and a few encouraging words, guests gathered to-go boxes filled with Asics gear ready to face the 26.2 mile run in just a few short days.
Post race on Sunday, Ditch Plains (Upper West Side) played host to several parties celebrating friends and family who had crossed the finish line. The energy in the restaurant was so energetic and contagious, we loved every minute! Draped in orange thermal sheets, runners trickled in full of excitement and slightly exhausted. That didn’t stop clinking glasses, bottles popping and quickly disappearing food. Bar gatherings, late brunches and even a private party with plate after plate of various hors d’oeuvres like mini cheeseburgers, crab cakes bites and macaroni and cheese balls. We we’re honored to help accommodate and celebrate with all. Congratulations to everyone who completed the race!
Dream Destination Wedding in the Big Apple
Imagine umbrellas, black and white strips with gold accents and even a “faux”to booth to capture those special moments. These were just a few of the details brought to life at Landmarc at the Time Warner Center over the weekend for a one of a kind wedding for a lovely Texan couple, Allison and Peter.
Guests were greeted with delicious passed hors d’oeuvres such as bacon wrapped dates and tuna tartar, which was then followed by a gorgeous seated dinner with a menu that included roasted organic chicken, grilled salmon and filet mignon.

The night concluded with a custom wedding cake that accompanied our delicious dessert boards. By the end of the day not only were Allison and Peter, husband and wife but they also hosted a New York wedding like true locals!

Children’s Birthday Extravaganza…
Pink, purple, green and orange; just some of the colors twin girls imagined for their 10th birthday extravaganza. We had the pleasure of bringing that vision to life and helping these gals ring in their first double digits.
The room was filled with delicious macaroon towers, custom cakes and an array of treats including Landmarc’s very own cotton candy! Fun was had by all as the guests enjoyed mixing and matching to their hearts content all whilst dancing the afternoon away with some help from a hip hop instructor.
If this sounds like your idea of fun, then what better way to celebrate your child’s next birthday! Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 212.625.8270 for more information!
Rehearsal Dinner at Landmarc
Nothing makes us happier then sharing a part in someone’s special day. We had that opportunity last week as we held a romantic rehearsal dinner at Landmarc in the Time Warner Center. After a cocktail hour with plenty of delicious passed hors d’oeuvres including a selection of mini hamburgers, pizzas and fish tacos, the guests took their seats at wine themed tables, a choice of the wine enthusiast pair.
Whilst sharing stories of the couple everyone enjoyed some Landmarc favorites including Mediterranean salad, grilled salmon and hanger steak. As the evening appeared to be coming to a close the Groom surprised everyone with a screening of a special movie he made for his bride-to-be. There wasn’t a dry eye in the house, including ours! Guests left truly feeling the love with custom cupcakes as favors!
Fall is here!
As the leaves begin to change, it is a reminder that the end of the year is fast approaching. Our thoughts have changed from leisurely beach days to designing Halloween costumes and holiday planning. As we enter the last quarter of 2013, many of us also look forward to celebrating achievements in our careers and organizations.
Recently, a private foundation focused on advancing research in mathematics and sciences did just that! Landmarc’s (Time Warner Center) location hosted the researchers who were celebrating a successful annual conference. Guests enjoyed the exclusive use of the restaurant (see photo below of our dining room)! Our guests feasted on five courses of house favorites including salmon tartare, the chopped salad (pictured below), a delicious rib eye steak, a course of cheeses including, humboldt fog and castelrosso and topped the evening off with a Landmarc specialty, the dessert board which includes one of each of our desserts.
Does your office have an organizational achievement or milestone you are looking to celebrate? We would love to help bring your fete to fruition! Please contact us at email@example.com or 212.625.8270 for more information.
End of Summer Wedding at Landmarc Tribeca
This past weekend Tanya and Ryan celebrated their wedding with close friends and family at our very own Landmarc Tribeca. Taking advantage of the end of summer’s warm breeze, the second floor doors were open to let in the distant buzz of West Broadway.
The happy couple welcomed guests from across the country to one of their favorite New York spots since relocating to the Big Apple from Canada.
Wedding goers dined on Landmarc’s signatures such as: grilled pork chops, fillet Mignon and seared scallops.
After dancing the night away, guests remained at Landmarc for the after party to enjoy a private viewing of Christmas Vacation (the couple’s favorite movie!) and snack on Ditch Dogs. Congratulations to Tanya and Ryan!
