Menus & Pricing

Event menus, like the rest of our offerings, are subject to seasonal availability. Our events team will work with you on any dietary restrictions or preferences and is happy to discuss any additional requirements you may have. Pricing depends on menu selections, date, and number of guests, and we will customize our offerings. In keeping with the shared plate nature of our dinner menu, events are served family style.

Our patio is open during the warmer months, featuring both dining tables and bench seating adjacent to our seasonal herb gardens. While we are happy to offer the patio for private parties, Selden Standard obviously cannot be held responsible for weather-related issues. For patio events, we can hold our private dining room as a reserve location in the case of inclement weather..

Private Dining Room

Depending on your needs, our private dining room can be configured for numerous uses – banquet-style dinners, a standard dining room, multiple tables of 10 or so, presentations and seminars, and receptions with hors d’ouevres. Available year round, the room also features a wireless projector and a hard-wired speaker for basic A/V needs. During warmer months, a series of French doors open up to the street. For seated events, we can generally accommodate up to 35 people; for strolling events, we can fit around 40 guests.

Communal Table

Our largest table, used for communal dining during most dinner services, can be reserved for smaller private gatherings. The table seats up to 16 people comfortably and, for a contracted food and beverage minimum, can be reserved for groups up to that size.

Natasha Marin Hollyday

Fate seems the likeliest explanation for how Natasha ended up at Selden Standard. Having gone to high school with one of the partners, having gotten engaged to the other, and having introduced the two, something would have seemed terribly askew without her radiant presence in the dining room. Formerly Director of Sales & Marketing for Pluto, a creative firm, and a sales rep for a few L.A. clothing companies, Natasha is a tri-lingual world-traveler with a fervent love for karaoke and her finely accoutered dog, Gazpacho.

Lena Sareini

Inspired by her family of food lovers and a passion for art, Lena wanted to combine her lifelong interests. So she enrolled in the Baking and Pastry Arts program at Schoolcraft College, graduating in 2013. Lena’s talent caught the eye of her instructor, master pastry chef Joseph Decker, to whom she served as sous chef, a position she held until she came to Selden in 2015. She was named a 2018 James Beard “Rising Star” semi-finalist and was a 2018 Eater “Young Guns” winner. Lena’s favorite activities include smiling, drawing, smiling more, and dancing – which she does everywhere, especially the pastry kitchen.
