We hired Danesh for a party of 14. She put together a superb event. First, Daneen is a gem of a human being. She is wonderful to work with and makes everything easy. Second, she is an outstanding chef. The meal she prepared for my guests, including hors d'Oeuvres, mains, and desserts, was most delicious. The pairings were great, the tastes both subtle and bold. Third, Daneen has a great eye for making the plate look cookbook perfect. She is wonderful, and I cannot wait for the chance to hire her again.Dec 10, 2016Verified

Words can not express how amazing Daily Square is. Daneen is such a talented Chef and a beautiful person as well. She catered my husbands 60th birthday party with 35 people. Her presentation of appetizers was so gorgeously delicious. And the evening was about good food and that's what you want at a party. Good food and good friends Her staff was an extension of her. Phenomenal. Her dishes are so unique that have a twist that makes you only want more. She is so professional with an amazing energy. I and all of my friends can't wait to have Dayneen back. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for making our party a night we will never forget.Jan 11, 2016Verified
Daneen is an amazing chef! I had the pleasure of tasting her food creations on more than one occasion and i can recommend her to anyone looking for a healthy, tasty original menu for their events/meals.Jan 22, 2015
I have hired Daneen for my annual bday party dinner party in addition to many other special social functions I have put on and she embodies every attribute associated with what you find in a top notch professional chef. She is punctual, detailed and meticulous in her delivery, and extremely organized with the execution of the entire dinner. When you work with her, her delightful and charming personality wins you over in seconds and she shows you how much effort, commitment and desire she puts forth to make your dinner party a huge success. She cares about her work as if she was cooking for her own family. As for her actual cuisine, one of the most underrated and undiscovered culinary gems we have here in our city. I have told her countless times that if she ever needs a willing tongue to taste anything she is experimenting with, count me in! I consider myself to be a snobby foodie with a demanding palate and even when " whips up a little something" I am on cloud nine and demanding that any and all leftovers are mine to keep. She genuinely loves to cook and you can really taste all the love she puts into her work. For anyone reading this review, do yourself a favor and treat yourself to her culinary magic and you too will soon be more than excited to write a review like this one for her.Jan 29, 2015
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Typically, we cater events for 20 people and above. Our rates will normally start at $40 per person and will differ based upon menu choices, staffing needs and rental costs. Our chefs have a starting day rate of $350, not including the cost of food. Servers start at $25 per hour and bartenders at $30, and work on a 4-hour minimum.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?We start by getting to know our clients: their likes and dislikes; favorite foods; their vision for the event. We find that investing a bit of time in understanding what our clients' needs are up front will help us know how to better serve them and their guests. We are always prepared with suggestions, but ultimately how we proceed is based on our clients' preferences.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I’m a classically trained chef, having attended LATTC over 10 years ago.
