The Lord Baltimore Hotel and Classic Catering People cook-up in collaboration

The historic Lord Baltimore Hotel and The Classic Catering People have announced a unique collaboration in which Classic Catering People will serve as the exclusive caterer for the Lord Baltimore Hotel.

With this collaboration new and previously booked meetings and events at the Lord Baltimore Hotel will be arranged and coordinated by Classic Catering People. This includes large-scale events and celebrations in the Calvert Ballroom, which can accommodate up to 1,200 people for a reception, as well as events in the new 19th Floor roof-top parlors and other function rooms suited for more intimate gatherings.

"The Baltimore community will be the beneficiary of the extraordinary synergy between the Lord Baltimore Hotel and Classic Catering People," said Gene-Michael Addis, General Manager of the Lord Baltimore Hotel. "This partnership will elevate all events held at the Lord Baltimore Hotel, including those that are already under contract, and will allow our guests to have the extraordinary advantage of a top-notch venue and a premier caterer under one roof."

A Baltimore company with more than 40 years of experience in the arenas of social and corporate catering, Classic Catering People believes that a passion for food is at the base of every event. Along with talented Account Executives and catering staff, Classic Catering has an accomplished culinary team of inventive chefs that continually craft new menus with traditional and contemporary flavors as well as presentations.

"The Classic family is delighted to partner with the Lord Baltimore Hotel in achieving excellence in event service for its clientele," said Harriet Dopkin, president and co-owner of The Classic Catering People. "Our company has deep roots in the Baltimore community and shares a similar vision as the Rubell family, the new owners of the hotel, in putting the city's celebrated assets--such as the Lord Baltimore Hotel--at the forefront, and we look forward to embarking on this exciting new journey."

Purchased last spring by Rubell Hotels, The Lord Baltimore is currently undergoing a total renovation to restore its prominence as one of the most significant hotels in Baltimore. Renovations to The Calvert Ballroom will be completed by mid-February, The new LB Tavern (which replaces the Lobby bar), the LB Bakery, a new gift shop and health club will be completed by mid-April. The first phase of new guestrooms and suites were completed and opened this past week and all hotel guests are now enjoying the fully renovated guest rooms. Renovation design of The Lord Baltimore is by Scott Sanders, a New York based interior designer.

"We are thrilled and honored to partner with a Baltimore institution such as the Classic Catering People that shares the rich and illustrious history of this amazing community," said Mera Rubell, owner and operator of The Lord Baltimore Hotel.

In December 2013, the hotel's first new restaurant, The French Kitchen, opened under the direction of Chef Jordan Miller who will continue to oversee its operation. Chef Miller will also oversee the food operations of the LB Tavern and Lord Baltimore Bakery, both of which will be opening in the coming months.
