Give us your best elevator pitch?

Recently rebranded to The Redbury New York, this historical 1903 hotel offers over 8,000 square feet of newly-renovated event space catered by Marta, Union Square Hospitality Group’s Roman-inspired pizzeria and grill known for its reimagined thin, crackly-crusted pizzas and seasonal specials cooked “alle brace,” meaning over open embers.

What would you say is Marta and The Redbury New York’s most unique offering?

One of the most unique options we offer is our “Chef’s Table,” which hosts up to 50 guests in Marta’s underground kitchen that provides an exciting and intimate experience for guests to interact with our chefs as they serve up delectable bites.

What do you think would surprise most planners to know about your space?

Our event space has an 1,100 square foot open air terrace known as our “city-scape” as a bonus space to every social or corporate event for guests to enjoy!  We also have a 55 person “Chef’s Table” which guests can interact and watch our chef’s in action artfully prepare food right in front of them as they mix and mingle with others.

What is one thing you wish more event planners knew about your space?

Event planners aren’t always aware that Marta and The Redbury New York’s private events are catered by Marta’s culinary team, led by Chef/Partner and James Beard Best Chef New York City nominee, Nick Anderer, and Executive Chef Joe Tarasco.  

What is the most memorable thing you’ve seen an event do with your space? 

My most memorable event by far was when a group connected their slow motion photo booth up to our (2) 180-inch screens playing throughout the party as well as a full DJ setup with 4 different rap groups from the 90’s and 2000’s.  The outdoor terrace was filled with freshly rolled cigars and  scotch!

If you could throw one dream event, what would it be? 

My dream scenario would include a Champagne reception curated by Marta’s Master Sommelier Jack Mason, followed by a grand tasting showcasing each Union Square Hospitality Group restaurant, set to the tunes of a 5-piece jazz band.
