The Graceful Ordinary: where past meets present. Refined rustic fare in a sophisticated, timeless setting along the scenic Fox River. Coming to St. Charles early summer 2021!
The Graceful Ordinary is a modern take on the traditional tavern that serves Chef-driven cuisine centered around the kitchen's wood burning hearth. With 4,700sqft of interior space and an additional 2,200sqft of waterfront terrace space outside - our venue allows couples to create a customized event that is unique to them!
We are currently taking reservations for riverfront ceremonies, receptions, engagement dinners, dinner rehearsals, showers and bachelor-x parties! I look forward to working with you both on making your event a memorable occasion for all!

Team of The Graceful Ordinary
Event Manager and Owner
With over 18 years of experience in the wedding event and hospitality industry, I now extend my expertise as Event Manager and Owner of The Graceful Ordinary. Along with my husband and Executive Chef, Chris Curren, we are pleased to provide couples with unforgettable views, Chef-driven cuisine and gracious hospitality!
My main goal when working with my couples, is getting to know them on a personal level: How did you two meet? What passions do you both share? What are your goals for this event? By getting to know you and your partner, I can help curate an event that is not only memorable, but personal. I aim for a trasparent booking phase and a smooth, well-communicated planning phase, so that the day of your event is just the cherry-on-top of an already enjoyable experience with The Graceful Ordinary! We hope our couples become a part of our restaurant family, so that you will join us for every momentous occasion you two share in the future: a new house, a job promotion, a new addition to your family - we want to "grow old" with you both, too!
When I am not spending time working one-on-one with couples or guests at the restaurant, I am spending quality time with my son and daughter or squeezing a quick getaway to New Orleans for some delicious beignets and live jazz! Family, food and great events are what my life is all about!
