Poughkeepsie's Revel 32° Partners with Celebrity Chef David Burke

Nearly one year after its debut in the City of Poughkeepsie, Revel 32° is excited to announce a partnership with Culinary Institute of America graduate and celebrity chef, David Burke. This Fall, Burke will join the Poughkeepsie-based event and entertainment venue as a preferred catering partner.

Beginning Fall 2020, guests looking to book an event at Revel 32°will have the opportunity to work with Burke and his team to curate a seasonal menu for any occasion. The offerings Burke will bring further underscore Revel 32°’s standing as a unique and versatile event venue in the region. With seven spaces within the venue, Revel 32°is equipped to host an array of events, including weddings, company luncheons, team dinners and other special celebrations.

“When we first decided to purchase and transform the building from a Masonic Temple to what it is today, we did so with the community, and the City of Poughkeepsie, which we know and love, at the forefront of our plans,” said Gina Sullivan, owner of Revel 32°. “We knew our guests – and the city – were deserving of a one-of-a-kind experience here, and our partnership with Chef David Burke will only amplify what we can offer.”

Burke’s role with Revel 32°is one in a long line of successes in the food and beverage industry. Known for his flagship restaurant, David Burke Tavern in New York City, Burke was the first American recipient of the Meilleurs Ouvriers de France Diplome d’Honneur, one of many awards and accolades he’s received in his three decade-long career. Burke has been recognized internationally for his revolutionary techniques, a successful restaurant empire that spans seven states, and his appearances on Bravo TV’s “Top Chef”, “Top Chef Masters” and more. Moreover, the partnership with Revel 32°brings full circle a love for the Hudson Valley that he has had since graduating from the Culinary Institute of America in 1982.

“The Hudson Valley is being recognized on a wider scale as of late, and for good reason – the abundant natural beauty, open space and access to fresh, local ingredients of the highest caliber make this a dream location,” said Chef David Burke. “Furthermore, being in partnership with Revel 32°is an ideal pairing for me – giving me a platform to bring high quality, memorable cuisine to events in the heart of the Hudson Valley, the very place my love for cooking began.”

About Revel 32°: Originally built in 1845 as a Methodist Church and later purchased and expanded into a Masonic Temple in 1895, Revel 32°underwent major renovations after being purchased in February 2019 to become a one-of-a-kind event space in the Hudson Valley. Rich in history and maintaining many original features such as stained glass windows, a brick façade and wood floors, Revel 32°is a family-owned and operated, 10,000 square foot space, with seven event rooms of varying capacities and backdrops – all with a unique, urban flair in the heart of Poughkeepsie.
