Catering Off Premise

A Tradition of Service
Chef and I have been Catering Off-Premise together, since the early 90s. In fact, it is how we met. Another piece of information you may not have known.
We took over an old family business, established in 1947. We followed their lead with family tradition and service with an updated approach. Our Service and Experience, and our friendly, courteous staff, means personalize attention to every detail of your event.
Food Only

If you are planning an event and simply want help with the food, we can assist with as little or as much of the menu as you’d like. We offer a selection of festive buffets, cocktail party favorites, hearty breakfast and brunches, corporate lunches and delectable dinners.

Full Service Catering

If you are planning a more complex event, we will take charge from the very beginning until the moment the last guest leaves. In addition to delicious food for any occasion, we bring our experience in site selection, layout, customized menu planning, rentals (tent, china, tables, chairs etc). We can also coordinate every small detail (flowers, music, favors, balloons, parking etc).


Prices vary with each event and your individual needs. Our Events Coordinator, Dhanny Palma will prepare a details proposal and estimate at your request. You may also set up an appointment to speak directly with our Executive Chef, Joe Palma.

From Our Clients

“My ordination party was better than perfect. The food was wonderful, the service was gracious, and most of all, I didn’t have to worry about a thing because you were there.

Thank you so much for taking such a personal interest in making sure my guests were well taken care of. I am so appreciative of you making my ordination day the special event that it was.”

~ Peter Kessler

“Just a brief word of thanks to you for having done such a good job of catering my installation brunch. I myself was so busy seeing people that I never got near the food tables, but everybody who did and who partook of what you had there was highly pleased and very complimentary – including people who are quite critical when it comes to such things.”
