Giuseppe’s La Sede to be the New Hotspot for Events in La Jolla

Giuseppe’s La Sede to be the New Hotspot for Events in La Jolla

Holiday parties, wedding showers, business events and pop-up dinners will soon have a new home at La Sede, acclaimed Chef Giuseppe Ciuffa’s new event space, catering headquarters and sales office. The venue is set to open in just a few weeks.

Located at 7853 Herschel Avenue in La Jolla, CA, La Sede – Italian for “headquarters” – gives people a place to begin envisioning their special events as well as an unforgettable place to hold them. By appointment, they’ll be able to sample Giuseppe Catering’s extensive menu and work with Ciuffa and his events team to create an unforgettable event, whether it’s a wedding, corporate party or community meeting.

“I envisioned La Sede as a hub for food and an inspired space for celebration,” said Ciuffa. “By appointment, the public can taste our menu in the catering showroom, envision a gathering in our event space or explore new culinary creations at our exclusive pop-up dinners. La Sede is a place to experience what we do and how we do it up close.”

Hold an event in Italy. Without leaving La Jolla.

Like Ciuffa’s Bottega Americano restaurant, La Sede’s interior design will blend the nostalgia of classic Italy with the modern chic of new Italy. Co-created by Ciuffa and designer Tiffany Brown, the effect is at once comfortable and warm, yet edgy and exciting. With 2,000 square feet, plenty of parking and the renowned Giuseppe Catering headquarters on site, La Sede is the perfect place to hold birthdays, business parties, client mixers and anniversaries—with ease. Thanks to Giuseppe’s own history of philanthropy, community groups and charity events can rest easy knowing that his team understands how to make their gatherings a success—and that La Sede is the place to hold them.

    “On behalf of the Board of Trustees of the Council of Michigan Foundations, Pam Bitzer and I would like to thank you for making our recent event at the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego such a lovely and memorable one. Your staff, food and service contributed to a wonderful evening. And, your gracious and generous response to my last minute request for a snack for early arrivers was much appreciated. The cheese and berries plant was not only beautiful but scrumptious! We look forward to working with you again the next time we come to San Diego .”
