In times of uncertainty, we look to our communities more than ever for ideas, insight, and guidance. At PartySlate, we will continue to share inspiring events and beautiful ideas throughout this difficult time, all the while looking forward to rejoining our friends and family to celebrate our life’s milestones — and yours.
Eating delicious cuisine just got a whole lot easier. While parties and milestone events remain postponed, 7 of New York City’s top caterers are offering their exclusive catering menus for pickup or delivery.
At Wafels & Dinges, the team tells us how they are adapting to the ‘new normal’ by offering normally-catered meals to families. Shaivi, Director of Sukhadia Caterers, goes on to say, “The recent situation has pushed us to come up with creative ideas. We are doing all of this by staying safe, keeping our staff safe, and exercising as much caution as possible.” Meanwhile, President Andrea Correale of Elegant Affairs also discovered new ways to assist the community with a Stay-At-Home Market offering the finest quality groceries.
Some catering companies are even finding ways to bring their meals to those one front lines. Kayla Castellano, Senior Events Sales Manager of CxRA, tells us how their chefs are busy preparing meals for city healthcare workers. As one nurse says, “I am obsessed with everything you’ve given us . . . Food is so important and I am SO grateful for all of the vegetables and nutrition you are giving us, especially at a time when we’re all trying to stay healthy.”
So whether you put on a cocktail dress for a virtual Zoom dinner party with friends — or don a pair of comfy pajamas for a gourmet-take on the traditional TV dinner — check out these 7 New York catering companies. It’s not every day that you get to eat like you’re at a Black-Tie event.
