Award winning Chef/Owner Matt Nugnes is well known for his innovative palate of international flavors and exciting presentations. His restaurants in historic downtown Melbourne, and at the Kiwi Tennis Club have squarely positioned him as a Space Coast culinary tour-de-force. To then extend that flare to on- and off-site event catering was a completely natural, and highly sought after, extension.

Matt’s Casbah offers full-service catering, on-site at their own venues, or off-site at your choice of venue.  From intimate to extravagant, they custom craft a personalized menu sure to match the essence of any event. Their unique eclectic global menu offers a variety of flavorful dishes including gourmet salads, signature sushi displays, Spanish paella, decadent desserts, full bar packages, and more for up to 350 guests on-site and 600+ off-site. Amy Reid, Medical Management Director at Health First offered this, “Matt’s Casbah at Kiwi made my 50th birthday party the celebration of a lifetime, and I can’t recommend it highly enough for important events.  Shelly was incredibly responsive to our needs and requests and was there for us every step of the way to make sure things went off without a hitch. The beautifully renovated room easily accommodate 100 guests in style, with plenty of parking available.  The elegantly-displayed food was as delicious as you would expect from Matt’s, and received rave reviews from our guests.  The service was outstanding from everyone we encountered, including the wait staff, bartenders, and the event coordinator. Thanks for offering this amazing venue at an affordable price!”

Their available on-site venues include a variety of art-filled dining spaces, a casual spacious patio, and a Private Chef’s Table located in historic downtown Melbourne.  At the Kiwi Tennis Club, they have a beautiful banquet room, private skybox and balcony, and an outdoor breezeway and lounge. After her event, Meredith Christie wrote, “I recently utilized Matt’s catering services for two different events —  a dinner and a luncheon upstairs in the Kiwi banquet room. Start to finish I had timely, professional service. The day of the banquets, everything that was promised was delivered. Taylor was our contact and did a fabulous job. The menu she helped put together was delicious and well reviewed by the attendees. I would totally recommend their services!”

Catering Directors, Shelley Colangelo and Taylor Fant, bring experience and flare to event catering and planning. Shelley has worked with Matt Nugnes since Matt’s Tropical Grill, and has been there from the beginning of Matt’s Casbah. Taylor is their newest addition, bringing creativity and experience in hotel event catering.  Combined they make a great team. Bailey Scott from Sunbelt Title Agency agreed, “Thank you for hosting my event! The service and food was amazing and it was organized perfectly!”

Matt has always taken an active part in supporting the communities his businesses serve. Gina Yates, Assistant Director, Athletic Partnerships, Florida Institute of Technology told us, “Florida Tech feels very fortunate to have the support of Matt’s Casbah. Matt’s is one of our corporate sponsors and has provided amazing food and drinks for many of our VIP signature events. Their professionalism and philanthropic spirit in our community makes them a very valuable partner.”

Matt’s Casbah, with casual fine dining, an eclectic global menu, sushi bar, art-filled dining spaces, and outdoor patio with live music, is located in the heart of historic Downtown at 801 East New Haven Avenue. At the beautiful Kiwi Tennis Club, Matt’s Casbah at Kiwi is a smaller quaint restaurant overlooking the tennis courts with a seasonal less expansive menu and a variety of catering spaces including a full banquet room, private skybox, and open breezeway and lounge ideal for a mix of events.
