Our motto sums up The Food Architects’ thoughts in how we run our catering business; since each client is made to feel as if they are the only client that we are planning an event for. We have forged relationships with the best florists, rental companies, entertainment groups and valet companies, so that each aspect of an event runs flawlessly with the rest. Utilizing only the freshest ingredients and purchasing artisan breads, gourmet desserts, and Parisian pastries daily from New York City guarantees that our food is always the best. Unsurpassed attention to detail is the final piece of the puzzle that makes The Food Architects the caterer of choice. We never look at an event as being too large or too small, since each event is treated with the same respect. A challenge is always welcomed, and we are always on the cutting edge to make each event more special than the last. Stop by to see what we have to offer, or call us and we will set up an appointment to come and see you.
