Paramount Events

Paramount Events is Chicago’s leading resource for providing unparalleled service and imaginative special events. Our unique catering concept blends cutting-edge catering services and menus with a fresh approach. From the large galas to weddings to our Drop Off boxed lunches, we are able to customize our menus to each client’s needs. We serve restaurant quality food which sets us apart from any other caterer.

Our firm unites Jodi Fyfe and Tony Pontillo—the Windy City’s elite homegrown talents—to provide world-class cuisine and exceptional leadership in catering. This culinary duo, with 50+ years of combined experience in the food service industry, believes in offering personalized options when hosting weddings, corporate and special events.

The entire Paramount Events team has an extensive collective knowledge and hands on experience in the events and hospitality industry. From the intimate to the oversized events, we fill the void when it comes to extraordinary cuisine for the masses. Our strength comes from being able to handle logistically challenging events and executing them with passion and precision by being present every step of the way. From the pre-planning, cuisine, staff, on-site set up and execution, to post event wrap up, our team understands the challenges and requirements necessary to implement an effective and memorable event.

The Lakewood is a fabulous private venue by Paramount Events. A stunning, versatile event space in the West Lake District of Downtown Chicago, our Onsite Event Kitchen offers a seasonal, elevated Culinary Program and our extensively trained service staff ensures each guest is well taken care of.

The possibilities are endless. Reserve The Lakewood for corporate events, weddings, conferences, group cooking classes, parties, meetings and more.
