D’Amico Catering has returned to Walker Art Center as the exclusive culinary and planning service for all private events taking place at the museum. The Minneapolis-based catering company managed the Walker Art Center’s special events and food service from 2011-2016. 

“We look forward to bringing D’Amico’s signature hospitality to the Walker Art Center once again,” says Larry D’Amico, co-owner of D’Amico & Partners, a restaurant and catering operator in the Twin Cities and Naples, Florida. “Walker Art Center has long been a destination for significant Minneapolis events, and to renew our partnership is very special.”

Walk Art Center has several meeting and event spaces available to groups such as the Garden Terrace Room, Skyline Room, Cityview Room and Crosby Conference Room as well as terraces, theaters, galleries, lounges and lobbies. Several have beautiful views of downtown Minneapolis or capitalize on the distinct architecture and captivating art.

"We are thrilled to again be working with D'Amico Catering, a tried and true partner over the years to the Walker,” says Mary Ceruti, executive director of Walker Art Center. “Their dedication to quality food and top-notch service, paired with their creativity, is a great match for us."

D'Amico & Partners, founded in 1982, owns several Minnesota operations including five D'Amico & Sons restaurants, D'Amico Catering, The Brooklyn, Café & Bar Lurcat and Campiello. D’Amico Catering is also the exclusive catering operator for Ashery Lane Farms, Bavaria Downs, The Beach Club, Edinburgh USA, Loring Social, McNamara Alumni Center, The Metropolitan, and Mill City Museum in Minnesota. Florida operations include Campiello, The Continental and Ziggy D’Amico’s Whiskey Bar & Diner.
