We LOVE weddings! What better way to bring together the people you love than with amazing food!
Call us to discuss your plans for your special day. Once we have an idea of what kind of food you’re looking for, we’ll work with our head chef Brandon Dac to create a menu just for you. Once a menu has been determined, we’d be happy to arrange a tasting. This is a great opportunity to get to know one another, sit down together and go through each dish in detail to make sure everything is tailored to your tastes.
Tastings are hosted on site at the Boy With A Knife restaurant located at 7-3111 Viking Way, Richmond BC. They typically last around 1 hour and can be booked between 1:30 – 5 pm Tuesday through Thursday. We charge $80 per person, typically prepaid by CC. Should you choose to move forward with BWAK for your special day, the cost of the tasting will be reimbursed on your final bill – and we promise you won’t say no once you taste our food!
After all the energy you have put into planning the big day, having it go off without a hitch is just as important. Boy With A Knife offers a day-of service to coordinate all aspects of the wedding. We know timing is everything and it takes a deft hand to coordinate the many elements that make up an amazing event to ensure everyone has maximum fun. There is no reason you should worry about it yourselves – let us do it for you! We can coordinate your different vendors and services, guests and bridal party, family and friends so that everything is on point, not to mention the amazing food. Day-of coordination fees will vary depending on the event, please call us for details.
