Besides being a charming, fine-dining venue, Square One in Duval Square in Key West, does catering for private parties and events. I recommend them highly. They have a small party room next to the restaurant, but with a separate kitchen, that opens to an outdoor patio area for "spillover" if it's a standing room only, cocktail party type affair. However, when a friend's mother passed away, she held a sit-down dinner there for about twenty out-of-town relatives and friends, including myself. It was beautifully done and the food was delicious. Many people are unaware that Square One caters outside of their restaurant venue also. I attended a private party at a business executive’s home, which was a going away party for one of his partners. Catered by Square One, the bartender and server at the buffet were friendly and efficient. The food was presented beautifully, besides being quite interesting American cuisine with a flair like vegetable quiche with manchego cheese or Maryland blue crab cakes with spiced jalapeno/chardonnay sauce or barbecued Key West shrimp with stone ground grits and green onion. I have also attended private parties where the entire restaurant was closed for the special event, such as a 70th birthday party for one of their very good customers. It was made into quite a “gala” by the owner and host, Michael Stewart, who is well known for his charm and energy as he gives each guest personal treatment. They also have a full liquor license to serve all kinds of cocktails and after-dinner liqueurs, which is fine by me because I prefer a good vodka martini with blue cheese stuffed olives rather than beer or wine.
