Based on the scene in the 1971 Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory movie, where Violet turns violet; the Inventing Room brings an entertainment value to our customers' food experiences by creating impossible treats right in front of their eyes. Using ingredients like Liquid Nitrogen & techniques like compression, we create dishes that dazzle your imagination & tastebuds.
Branded "Food & Drink Entertainment", Chef Ian Kleinman & his staff produce events that are unforgettably unique.
The Inventing Room will cater your entire event or we are happy to work with other catering companies and hotels to produce entertainment stations. We specialize in weddings, private events, corporate events and Mitvahs. Our coordinators can also help with rentals, deliveries and timelines for your event. We want you to relax, let us take care of the details.
Halloween 2015 we opened our first location at 2020 Lawrence. Please see our Dessert

"I have been LUCKY enough to have attended TWO events catered by The Inventing Room in the last month. Not only is his food BETTER then you will find at most 5 star restaurants, it is WAY more fun. As with the other reviews his liquid nitrogen inventions are insanely good but EVERYTHING I have had from Ian and team has been amazing, including the peas/carrots side dish!
It is very hard to pick a very favorite but if I had to I would say it is a tie between the crunchy shell chicken tacos (way cooler then it sounds) and his amazing little crab cakes.
I have been blown away about the flavors The Inventing Room can get in one little bit of food...and you will too. I will definitely use them for the next event that I have!"
Tate S. Yelp Review
"For my fancy pants birthday, I hired the great folks at the Inventing Room to create a 5 star meal based on my favorite foods growing up. Ian and his team took the remnants of my childhood and turned them into a incredibly complex, delicious and fascinating menu that wowed everyone.
Favorites include Trout Stuffed Mushrooms, the Sous Vis Bacon Wrapped Pork Loin, and the Nib Space Foam that makes your mouth breath smoke.
Not only was the food delicious but the showmanship took it to 11. Do yourself a favor and hire them for your next event."
