Willow Inn Selects Brera Catering


The Willow Inn has reached an agreement with Brera Catering, to operate and manage events at the Inn. The agreement is expected to take effect March 1, 2024.

“Seven years ago, despite being outsiders to the hospitality industry and to Hudson, we bought The Willow with the hope of saving this much-loved institution. We undertook a major renovation, and sought to elevate the quality of its service, its offerings, and its foods, to be worthy of its unique location and magical setting on the Lake of Two Mountains. These efforts, with our dedicated team, led us to achieve a ranking in the top 100 restaurants in Canada last year,” said Willow proprietors Patricia Wenzel and David Ades.

The departure of some members of the culinary team in December 2023 led the Inn to seek a new direction to secure the long-term viability of the Willow.

“We are delighted to have reached an agreement with Adam Mariani and Brera Catering to operate the Auberge Willow Inn,” they said.

Brera has been in events management since 2015 and managed over 500 events in 2023 alone. The new arrangement will ensure that the Willow will continue to be a premier venue for celebrations, weddings, and other gatherings. Brera will assume management of all operations before the beginning of the 2024 spring season.

“We are thrilled to have reached an agreement with the Willow. This will enable us to offer our clients a unique and historic setting, to host magical celebrations,” said Adam Mariani, Brera Catering.
