Top NYC Caterer, Innovative Chef

As an event planner in NJ, it is very difficult to find a caterer that can provide a NYC style atmosphere in service and food alike but Chef Vitella and his team really deliver!

I was fortunate to attend an event catered by this company a few months ago held at the World of Wings Butterfly museum.

Cocktail hour was true to NJ style with plentiful passed HD’s..but cool things like mini seafood tacos, sliders, delicious puffs,..but the big hit was Chef Vitella himself. He debuted this cool thing called ‘Dragon popcorn’ which is flavored popcorn that he hand ‘pops’ in a frozen ‘bath’ of liquid nitrogen! The result is a hand scooped cone of deliciousness and as you pop the popcorn in your mouth, it smokes! Hence the name.

Ok, so as we sat down we were treated to a lovely salad with a balsamic drizzle and some pickled vegetables. The pasta course was a huge ravioli which was, I kid you not, hand made and shaped into a butterfly! A butterfly ravioli the size of your plate! The sauce was light and delicious and the pasta was thin and flavorful.

The entree was a medley of 3 components. a filet, an eggplant rollatini, and a filet of fish with a mild sauce. The dinner was lovely and their staff they brought along to serve was also impeccable.

From what I understand, this company does way more than just make the food. From soup to nuts they deliver a complete party with staff, bartenders if needed, etc. Great experience and I would definitely hire them for my own events in a second!
