The Wine Cellar at The Highlawn Pavilion

The Wine Cellar, located on the lower level of Highlawn, is the perfect choice for those seeking a truly unique dining experience in the most private of settings. Built directly on top of “Eagle Rock” (the rock is the eastern wall of the room), there is nothing quite like it.

Here’s What People Are Saying:

“Thank you for having me last Wednesday! I really enjoyed the culinary portion of the event as well as the networking.”
– Richard Sodeke, Media Sales Associate at Felix

“What a lovely evening last night.  I loved that we were standing in the kitchen  watching the handsome chef with his adorable French accent, cooking delicious food that we could eat immediately.  How often does one get that opportunity to see behind the scenes, other than on television where it sometimes seems scripted?  The event was beautiful, the location  was stunning, and the camaraderie in the room – priceless!”
– Eileen Berman,

“Great event last night, truly.  Thank you! When I hit the road and sat in the driving rain and traffic coming from Newark, I thought about how nice it would be to go home! Boy am I glad that I made the commitment to you (and to me) to come because I would have missed a wonderful time meeting great folks.”
– Lori Chapin, Attorney, Sedgwick, LLP

“Thank you for a great event! I adored your friends and clients.”
– Denise Gaffney, Area Development Manager, Etcetera; Regional VP, National Association of Professional Women

“The Restaurant Serenade installment of Culinary Connections was excellent – great food and wine as well as great new faces to share it with. I look forward to the next Culinary Connections event in April and joining the Course Connections group in the spring.”
– Marty Eide, Attorney, Markel Corporation
