So you’re looking for some catering, huh?

Well, The Catch-y Caterer promises THREE things

when we cater a party for you:

THE FIRST IS INDIVIDUALIZED ATTENTION TO YOU AND YOUR EVENT. 

Doesn’t every caterer promise that?

Um, no they do not. But we do.

We will work with you to create individualized menus for your Holiday Party, your son’s Bar Mitzvah, or your Mother-in-law’s 85th Birthday Party (even if you kinda wish she didn’t make it past her 80th).

We will put together food combinations you would never have conjured up on your own (Tequila Lime Chicken with Creamy 

 Cheddar Corn Pudding anyone??) so your party is unlike anyone else’s you have ever been too – especially one who’s event we have already catered!

And we will do it all while keeping to whatever budget your tell us. Because what’s more annoying than a realtor who shows you houses out of your range? A caterer who talks Filet of Beef when you are on a Brisket budget (trust me on this one, I’m building a house, I get it).

 

See below for some great catering ideas. Have some questions about our catering service? Call us at 917-721-9217.

THE SECOND THING WE OFFER IS A STAFF SO ATTENTIVE, SO HARD WORKING & LIGHTHEARTED THAT THEY WILL MAKE EVERY MINUTE OF YOUR EVENT THE SMOOTHEST & MOST SEAMLESS FIVE HOURS YOU HAVE ALL WEEK.

My chefs, servers & bartenders swoop into your homes or offices and take over. Go throw those kids in the tub or jump into a long, hot shower before your party because when my crew arrives, you are no. longer. needed. 

We set up & unwrap, we heat & assemble, we pass & clean – we will even run a vacuum for you if you didn’t get around to it that day. 

That is just what we do. 

Our goal is to make your night as fun and relaxing as if you were one of the guests and not the host. So book your event early because our crews go fast and we want to make sure you get the night off since you are the one footing the bill! 

See below for some great catering ideas. Have some questions about our catering service? Call us at 917-721-9217.

AND LASTLY, BUT NOT LEASTLY IMPORTANT (IS THAT A WORD?), THE THIRD THING THE CATCH-Y CATERER WILL BRING YOUR PARTY IS THE SWEETEST, SAVORY-EST, MOST FLAVOR-PACKED AND INTENSELY EXPLOSIVE DISHES YOU HAVE EVER TASTED.EVER.

I do not lie. Don’t believe me? I dare you to read the testimonials below. 

Appetizers like our Candy Bacon will knock your socks off. We had a guest who once literally stock piled it in the inside pocket of his jacket at a party he was so enamored with it.

 We make a Shredded Kale & Quinoa salad with Crunchy Red Grapes & Grated Parmesan Cheese in a Citrus Vinaigrette that sparked a mother & daughter argument because they only ordered one and the Mom polished it off behind her daughter’s back. No joke, Shredded Kale & Quinoa. Who would have thought it, right??

I wanted to send you a note just raving about your service for us at Cosmic Jazz. The staff was delightful, so great to work with, and so efficient. The food was delicious, looked wonderful, and was passed expertly. The bartending was quick and easy, everyone was well accommodated, and no one had a complaint. It made this, our first evening fundraising event, such a pleasure. Even at the end, the cleanup was impeccable—everything we wanted it to be, it was, and your team delivered.

A very sincere, heartfelt thank you for all your hard work, great decisions, and delicious food.
Best, Andrea Bustios
President, Edgemont PTA
