Events at The Goodwin take on a magical quality when planned in one of our many event spaces. From grand to intimate events, The Goodwin offers a level of care and hospitality that will smoothly guide you through any event, paired with our excellent catering that will stun and satisfy both you and your guests. 


Catering will be executed by award winning Chef Tyler Anderson and his long-time team. Cocktails are curated by Tim Cabral of Ordinary & Bar Piña, and desserts by Chef Kristin Eddy of Millwright's, The Cook & The Bear, and Restaurant Porrón. Catering and events are all lead by Heather Schold, Catering Sales Director.

Chef Tyler has twice been named Chef of the Year in Connecticut by the CT Restaurant Association. He has been nominated as Best Chef Northeast from the James Beard Foundation for the last five years in a row (2013-18). He was a Cheftestant on the most recent season of Bravo’s Top Chef, and also appeared (and won) on Food Network’s Chopped and Beat Bobby Flay.
