Those tired of the same cold-cut sandwiches at their monthly office meetings have cause to rejoice. These two premier food purveyors are capable of bringing a contemporary slant to any workplace event.
Maple and Rose, an Irvington-based market-driven caterer founded by Matt Gorney and Chef Ryan Hart, consults with clients to serve up the ideal feast. Hart previously worked at internationally acclaimed New York City restaurants Babbo and Barbuto, and served as culinary director to West Village hotspots Buvette and Via Carrota. For a varying fee, Hart will treat your office to dishes like roasted chicken dusted with fennel pollen or meatball skewers of pork, sage, and ricotta.
If an old school banquet is more your office’s speed, look no further than Jean-Jacques’ Culinary Creations in Pleasantville. This specialty caterer usually brings their elegant eats to weddings, but their services can be booked for workplace outings and events as well. Expect fun hors d’ouevres like sliced filet mignon crostini and smoked salmon mousse, or order up popular dishes including mini crab cakes, chicken satay, pulled pork sliders, shrimp scampi, roast leg of lamb, or lobster bisque.
