Our History

Parizade is known as one of the leading Mediterranean restaurants in the Triangle, and our catering culture is no different. Carrying the same qualities off-site, we bring a captivating experience to any venue imaginable and honor the romance of any sizable celebration.

In 1990, Giorgios Nikolas Bakatsias, a well-known chef-proprietor in the area opened Cafe Parizade. To meet growing demand for Parizade cuisine, 5 years later, Giorgios and his partner Jay Mehdian made a wise decision to venture into the world of catering; to spread the same fresh flavors and concepts used in the production of Parizade’s menu beyond the restaurant.

Working in line with Chef de Cuisine Robert Adams alongside Executive Chef Jason Lawless and an exceptionally skillful team, Parizade Catering remains to be a great success and retains a long line of repeat clients that include: Nasher Museum, ADF, DPAC, Duke Arts Council and the Full Frame Film Festival. In addition we have catered over 200 weddings in our venue alone. With a plethora of experience in corporate functions, fundraisers, galas, special occasions and ceremonies, our clients can rest assured that we will exceed expectation.

Our creative menus are creative for a reason, they are redesigned and reinvented constantly attuned to the variety of taste preferences and modern food trends today. As well as taste we promise to deliver with presentation for any style of event, extending any vision to any venue. Our menu also includes one that is themed, exhibiting delicious cuisine from a variety of mediterranean regions – Paella parties have been popular and of course our Greek & Arabian themed nights still continue to dazzle.

Some of our delectable delicacies include our House Smoked Scottish Salmon with a sweet chilli glaze and the wild mushroom crusted Beef Tenderloin.
