Wilmington Delaware Private Dining Restaurant

Scott Morrison Events

Restaurateur and Chef Scott Morrison intensively studied his craft in Florence,
Italy, before returning to New York where he successfully owned and operated over a dozen food establishments in Manhattan. He is one of the area's most accomplished restaurateurs - perhaps known best as the creator and co-founder of Nectar, the Main Line's most successful restaurant. In 2010, Scott Morrison Events became a part of the ongoing revitalization of Wilmington's Market Street corridor and currently operates Chelsea Tavern and Ernest & Scott Taproom. SME is also responsible for all the extraordinary catering for The Grand Opera House. Scott's culinary approach is to create simple dishes which necessitate a high level of technique and require the use of fresh, local, quality ingredients.

The Scott Morrison Events team will work closely with you to make every event a memorable success. Whether you are planning an intimate cocktail reception, wedding or corporate meeting, we have the experience as well as the global resources to execute every aspect of your event. Our unique venues can be configured to accommodate anywhere from 8 to 300 guests. From customized menus to distinctive décor, we take pride in delivering our passionate service with our signature style.
