Hear From Our Clients
“We were delighted with the experience and the wonderful Chef/team we worked with. Everything was great and I've suggested it to another team… we will see you again soon!”

- Colleen Jones, Metropolitan Family Services

“We are still talking about our event at The Chopping Block! It was perfect in every way. The chef instructors were both really great, in presenting and teaching a group with varied skill levels in the kitchen. The meal was fantastic, and while everything was delicious, the group is still talking about the Alfredo! We are already planning our winter event at The Chopping Block.”

- Carla Zenzola, Vi Living

"We are an extremely competitive bunch, and my team thoroughly enjoyed the night. My problem now will be how to top it next year. In fact, we were recently at dinner and members of the winning team (myself included) were still razzing the losing team. So, almost three months later, we're still getting value from the night. You have a great thing going at The Chopping Block!"

 - Sid Cowherd, Performance Food Service
