What made Farmer’s Table create the Event Center?
There was tremendous demand from the loyal customers of Farmer’s Table to host special occasions and events within the restaurant.  Because of our proximity to and relationship with the Wyndham Boca Raton, the meeting space directly above the restaurant was transformed into the spectacular Farmer’s Table Event Center. Equally exciting is the space next to the restaurant that we turned into the impressive Oak Room, which can hold up to 120 guests for cocktails and 100 diners for dinner.
What makes the Oak Room so unique?
The Oak Room is rustic and elegant.  It’s a unique venue, unlike any other in Boca Raton.  Designed by renowned interior designer, Peter Niemitz, the room creates an atmosphere of warmth and intimacy, with comfortable seating and private nooks for quiet conversations. The wood paneling on the walls comes from a reclaimed barn and gives a warm and stylish look to the space.  It is fun for us to see the expressions on newcomers faces when they first see the Oak Room, as they are delighted with how different the look is from anything else in South Florida.
What sort of functions have you held there?
The beauty of our event space is that it is infinitely versatile. We’ve hosted stunning weddings, birthdays, corporate meetings, Bar & Bat Mitzvahs, bridal & baby showers, retirement dinners and fundraising events.  We recently hosted a dinner in the Oak Room to celebrate Arun Gandhi, the grandson of Mahatma Gandhi, which was a remarkable event. We’ve hosted events with FAU featuring sport celebrities, and notably, with Ivan Lendl. Whatever our guests want, we do our very best to create the magic for them.
Tell us about the décor of the Event Center.
People love the contemporary décor of our upstairs event space, especially the huge windows and balcony that overlook the pool and courtyard.  There is a tremendous amount of natural light that comes into our space, with views of palm trees on the east side and our lovely courtyard on the west.   It is beautiful both during the day and at night. The Oak Room exudes warmth and rustic charm and its elegance is derived from its reclaimed wood, restoration hardware chairs and beautiful lighting.  There’s nothing like it Boca Raton.
Why has it become so popular and how can someone tour it?
Increasingly, people are focused on maintaining a healthy lifestyle, and one of the ways to do this is by eating well. Companies and corporations are encouraging this lifestyle change and are seeing the benefits with healthier and happier employees.  Both private diners and companies alike realize the incredible efforts that Farmer’s Table undertakes to creates and serve delicious, healthy dishes. We feel it is an honor that our guests want to celebrate their big moments in life at the Farmer’s Table Event Center and we always ensure that their event is a very special one. We welcome anyone who would like to tour the Event Center and I would personally love to show it off. Please contact me at 561-417-1892 or ahoodack@farmerstableboca.com.
