Ralph’s on the Park
At Ralph’s on the Park, private events make up 42 percent of the revenue stream, according to General Manager David Hart. For that reason, Ralph’s has separate private dining menus and a dedicated events staff. Most of the private events held at the restaurant are one-time affairs, but some groups do have standing dates, Hart says. Parties and meetings are usually held upstairs, where the restaurant has several rooms.
Hart attributes Ralph’s popularity to a number of factors, including its convenient location, beautiful City Park views and varied cuisine. Ordinary “banquet food” might fly in some cities, but local diners expect to dine well, whether at a club meeting or a wedding reception.
The Corporate Connection – Executive Connections chapter of BNI has met at Ralph’s on the Park every Wednesday at 8 a.m. for four years. Holly McCollum, president of the chapter, says members like being able to invite guests to a well-known restaurant like Ralph’s for their weekly meetings. “The restaurant always provides an elegant breakfast,” McCollum says.
