What we do...

Catering & Special Events


Turning a big number? Getting hitched? Office party?  Celebrating a milestone?

We've got you.

We want to know who's coming, what you love to eat, and what kind of vibe you want to create. We'll take it from there.

Seasonal, delicious menus created just for you. We don't prepare anything we don't want to eat, and we keep our footprint small so we can be hands-on and personal; No faceless, corporate, cookie-cutter operation here...



From an intimate cocktail party in your home to a gala reception in a large venue, our friendly, professional staff will execute your vision. Want to go back to the 80's? We make the best spinach artichoke dip you've ever tried. Did you eat something delicious in Istanbul or Mérida that you want recreated? We've been there too, and we can do that! We are former and current NYC restaurant chefs who create and travel on the regular. Food excites us. We are happy to work within your budget to create your memorable event.
