Why is Our Menu (And the Company) Different?

Take one look at our menu, or better yet, talk to your friends and neighbors who we’ve worked for,  and you’ll see instantly what makes Exquisite Caterers different.

As far as the menu, we’re best described as New American Chic, that just happens to be kosher. We have items like osso bucco, venison, and foie gras – all items that no other kosher caterer does. We try to find different items available. We recently started working with a new butcher that gets us American Kobe beef, venison, bison, quail, pheasant and more. These are things that are very hard to find and are still Kosher. We also go to new trendy restaurants and sometimes its just our new spin on an old classic.

As far as the company – the thing we are most proud of is our staff. Our workers – once they start working here we treat them as family. Our sous chef has been with us for 15 years, his assistant for 3 and my assistant for 2. My assistant before that was here for 7 years before he left to start his own business.  At Exquisite Caterers we have a saying “if you won’t eat it, don’t serve it.”  Each and every staff member takes great pride in what they do.

And, while we have won numerous awards (even in  vegan competitions!) we don’t need awards to know that we are good.  The hugs and kisses from our clients every week is an award in itself!

Kosher Caterer to the World – Well, the U.N. Anyway!

Image[1]On Monday, April 15th, 2013, we were once again honored to cater at the United Nations. This time for  a Yom Ha’atamaut (Israeli Independence Day) reception at the Ambassador River View Tent, at the United Nations Headquarters in New York City. We were invited by Israel’s Ambassador to the United Nations, H.E.  Mr. Ron Prosor, Well, when I say “Invited” I mean “Cater.

Exquisite Kosher Caterers at the United Nations!

Dave at the UN!

Over 500 UN Delegates and members of the NY Israeli and Jewish communities attended.

Exquisite Caterers is the kosher caterer for the United Nations, and we served the entire event – from full appetizers to desserts!

We received many compliments and our Beef Short Rib Spring Roll with Teriyaki BBQ Sauce (yum!!)  was a big hit!

Here’s what the mission said about the event:

220px-Miri_Ben-Ari_with_Violin_47b_[1]Our Mission had a ball last night rocking the UN with Miri Ben-Ari and over 500 UN delegates and members of the New York Israeli and Jewish communities to celebrate Israel’s 65th birthday…(Ms.) Ben-Ari gave a heart-stopping performance. Miri’s music has echoed from some of the world’s most celebrated stages – and last night she added yet another string to her bow as a “cultural ambassador” for the State of Israel.

We think they would have talked more about the food, but their mouths were full!
