For years, people from around NWI have requested having Radius cater their Christmas parties, business meetings, and special events. Unfortunately, NWI's perennial " Restaurant of the Year" had limited space and a full house nearly 24/7.

Belle Estanni Bake Shoppe -Smoketown Blues

Water always finds the way, and so does smoke! The story of how Belle Estanni Bake Shoppe found its way to downtown Valpo is a good one, and it happened because people in Valpo couldn't get enough of Chef Mireya and her crowd-pleasing baked goods. Mireya began selling her baked goods at Smoketown Blues and the rest is history. Fresh baked goods & Southernwood cuisine. But now people can have their cake and eat it too! Belle Estanni offers catering, and private party options.

Maple + Bacon

Maple+Bacon has quickly become an overnight sensation for breakfast fans in Valpo, but its origins are rooted in its sister restaurant, Radius-Valpo. According to owner Chris Pavlou, we always wanted to have a venue for private parties at Radius, but were limited due to Radius's location and menu. M+B is like Radius but offers customers a wide range of food offerings, which makes it the perfect vessel for in-house catering & private parties. You can host your party in our Maple room, outdoor dining, or even our liquor bar and coffee bar....and we can serve Radius' menu too!
