A Culinary Experience Guided by Food

Introducing Table & Banter

Food is the cornerstone of The Park. And on-campus event group, Table & Banter, facilitates our diverse array of unparalleled food and beverage offerings for an elevated culinary experience.

The team—Brian Bistrong, Corporate Executive Chef and Culinary Program Director, Ashley Davis, Director of Pastry and Baking, and Louis Bayla, Executive Chef for Grain & Cane Bar & Table—are leaders in the hospitality, restaurant and catering industries. Together, they have spent years working with some of New York City’s most renowned chefs.

Inspired Culinary Concepts

Led by these visionaries, Table & Banter is responsible for all things food at The Park. The group creates newly curated restaurant concepts, handles all indoor and outdoor on-campus restaurants, designs grab-and-go café offerings inspired by the “fast casual” organic food movement, and heads up a commissary kitchen that handles corporate and social catering services for event spaces and customized tenant meal plans.

Table & Banter also boasts a 1,000 SF Chef’s Test Kitchen designed for tastings, private events and parties. Whether you select to dine at The Park’s premier restaurant or request catering in New Jersey, your needs are covered at The Park.
