Food Services

At Levy Restaurants we embrace guests with our heartfelt hospitality and are intent on exceeding their expectations. Our passion was ignited to celebrate food and create memorable guest experiences. Levy Restaurants at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center is proud to use the best local seasonal products available in all of our menus and continues to support the efforts of our building as the first convention center to achieve Platinum LEED® certification under Existing Buildings.

Here at the Convention Center we work green everyday! We donate leftover food, purchase local, compost unconsumed food and all paperware by using biodegradable, organic paper products including cups, plates and flatware.

You can download a PDF of our available menu, but we would also be happy to customize a seasonal menu based on your group's needs and believe that every occasion should be extraordinary. It's all about the food and the thousands of details that surround it. Together, we look forward to delivering the Levy Difference!
