Bambara has named Jennifer Black as their new director of catering. With years of full-service event planning experience, she enjoys a strong reputation for providing beautifully orchestrated business and social events. She brings a real passion for creativity and service to Bambara and is eager to assist guests with the creation of their exceptional events.
In her role as director of catering, Black will oversee all events, group meetings and private social celebrations. Black has a strong background of over 13 years of in-depth, professional catering and event management experience. She started at Tradewinds Resorts in Florida with a focus on banquets and weddings. Eventually, she transitioned into the restaurant and fine dining environment with The Melting Pot, where she fine-tuned her knowledge on food, wine and service standards, opening 19 franchises around the country. Prior to Bambara, Black put her magic to work at Caesar's Entertainment venues including The Rio All Suite, Bally-Paris and Caesar's Palace in Las Vegas. There, she managed convention services and high level entertaining for celebrities and high profile events.
"Jennifer is highly experienced in managing weddings, family celebrations, tradeshows, retreats, board meetings, holiday parties and a host of other events," said General Manager Guy Wheelwright. "She prides herself on her thorough knowledge of food and wine and her ability to provide a professional, seamless experience. We're so pleased to have found an event manager with this level of experience and talent for high-level service."
"I just love working with and being surrounded by creative people and helping our guests make memories,” Black said. “Although Bambara is known for a wonderful dining experience at the restaurant, we also offer stylish and amazing private parties. I'm excited to bring the innovative seasonal menus from award-winning Executive Chef Nathan Powers to the plate for our guests' celebrations."
