The PDR dinners I have attended were for sure the best and most unique experiences. I have attended two dinners in two different settings and the atmosphere both times were relaxing and laid back. Rita is such an amazing chef and William was a fantastic host. They both make you feel comfortable and at home. They definitely have a great thing going! During our regular weekend trips from Mobile, AL to New Orleans, we always require a pit stop at the PDR restaurant in the St. Roche market to get our fix. I highly recommend The PDR out to everyone.

Rita cooks some of the best food I have ever eaten. I went to a pop-up dinner and every course was on point! The service was great. Food comes out with perfect timing. The food at The PDR shop in the St. Roch Market is delicious too. Love the chicken sandwich.

Chef Jewel is AMAZING!! We traveled to New Orleans to celebrate my husband's 40th birthday and brought along 12 friends and family members. We rented an entire house and hired Chef Jewel to prepare breakfast for our group of 14. 1. Professional. Chef Jewel responded to my inquiry within an hour and proposed a 4-course menu that far surpassed my imagination! 2. Personal. Chef Jewel came to the house the night that we arrived to meet us in person - her only purpose for that visit was to connect with us personally and to make sure we felt comfortable with our selections and the process. 3. Perfection. There is no other way to describe the absolutely delectable food, the flawless presentation, and the superior service she and her staff provided. She made our breakfast the grand event I wanted it to be. My guests felt completely spoiled. It was an unforgettable experience!!

I have the fortune of receiving a plate of food by this man who calls himself Chef P. I know him through his wife I work with her. I need to let you all know that I am an extremely picky eater but the food this Chef prepares is outstanding. I had a stuffed bell pepper for the first time in my life and it was absolutely delicious I ate the entire pepper. I had dirty rice peas and a salad and I can't wait for his food truck and then his restaurant because I will most definitely invest. Thank you Pho Pho for providing this incredible food experience and thank you Chef P! Outstanding!!!

I have to admit the sweets and cakes from Chef Pastry D is out of this world. Please don't get me started on the amazing King Cake he made, it was so good I could not stop eating it. The cupcakes are drop you to y our knees good and don't worry, the desserts are not too sweet for the discerning taste bud. I highly recommend Chef D because you are getting amazing food that has been originally designed for you.

Chef Coni helped me plan a surprise in home dinner/cooking lesson for my girlfriend and was great from start to finish. She was open to all types of suggestions for the menu, but also provided some recommended options, which I ultimately went with. She arrived on time, prepared and was pleasant and instructive throughout the evening. Chef Conni was fine with us sitting back and watching her cook when we wanted to just relax. Very low key and enjoyable evening, which is exactly what we wanted. Just let her know what your preferences are and she will be happy to help.

We couldn't have asked for anything more from Chef Cyn! First of all, from the beginning, Cyn was a pleasure to work with. I told her the experience I was looking for and together we created the menu for our evening. I was in New Orleans for my sister's bachelorette party and I wanted to have a unique experience for her. Cyn delivered! There were 8 of us total and I asked Cyn for a semi-hands on cooking class for the group. It was perfect! Cyn showed up on time with her sous chef and prepped for dinner, explaining what she was doing and all about Creole vs. Cajun food as she did it. She offered to let us do some chopping, but I think the girls were pretty focused on their wine and her directions ;) On the menu was a simple, fresh salad, crawfish etouffee, and a delicious and light (what we asked for!) fresh strawberry dessert. Everyone loved it, Cyn was a doll, and it was such a fantastic meal and experience. I highly recommend using Chef Cyn! You will not be disappointed.

Cyn did an excellent job cooking dinner for our group of 12. She was very helpful choosing a menu that fit our budget, and very responsive to text and emails. Cyn and her assistant were very professional and the meal was tasty and very well presented. Her cost estimate was accurate and the portions were perfect. I would use her again!

We enjoyed a fabulous Thanksgiving meal this year courtesy of the delicious catered delights ordered through EZ Event Coordinators. The smoked turkey was perfect! Our guests were amazed at the corn pudding and sweet potatoes and even confiscated our newly purchased container of smoke sauce! Thank you Ellie, once again, for making our holiday meal effortless. Highly recommended, five stars! Sincerely, Mark and Sandy

I had a private dinner party at my home with Chef Chris Cody the catering Chef. He came on time, was very neat and tidy, prepared the dinner at my home and served us. The three course meal was fantastic and I have already recommended him to a friend that used him to cater a bridal luncheon. She as well as very pleased. I would recommend Chef Chris Cody to cater any of your events!

We had the chef come to the house for our 30th Bday weekend and cook for 10 ladies. He cooked gumbo and jambalaya...but also cooked shrimp and grits randomly per one of the ladies request! He was reasonably priced and more than willing to share his knowledge and time with us.

Chef Maras was our personal chef for my husband's 70th BD celebration. He helped me plan the menu and offered suggestions as to what sort of dishes would work the best for us. The dishes he prepared were amazing! Everyone complimented him on the delicious food and the presentations of the selections were very attractive. It felt so wonderful for us to know that our guests were so blown away by the food that they kept telling us that this party is awesome! Chef Maras' expertise and professionalism are commendable. Also, he is very approachable and easily offered ideas and advice to us and our guests on how the dishes were prepared. There is no doubt in our minds that Chef Maras made our celebration very memorable and a big hit with everyone there. We felt so happy that he made our party a big hit! I definitely would highly recommend Chef Maras to my family and friends. I can't say enough about how hard he worked and how flawlessly he executed the menu for us. Kudos to you, Chef Maras!

Chef Derrick absolutely killed it for my sister's baby shower. The Shrimp & Grits "Shooters" were the talk of the shower. Derrick was very helpful in assisting us with our menu selections (the shooters were his idea). His pricing wasn't the cheapest (which his initially admitted) but the quality of his work and his attention to detail is unmatched. We now regularly utilize Chef Derricks meal prep service.

Working with Chef Derrick was extremely simple.. He was very punctual, detail oriented and very polite. His pricing was fair, especially for the quality of his work.. And let me tell you about his cooking. OMG his Florentine Stuffed Chicken is to DIE for lol.. Will definitely hire again in the future..

Chef Derrick is a lifesaver; with only a few hours notice he produced over 100 boxed lunches for our biannual safety meeting. We are considering having him cater our meetings exclusively. He even has a Food Truck which we may opt for next time around..

Jeanne was an absolute pleasure to work with! I went down to New Orleans to celebrate my 30th birthday with 15 of my girlfriends. Jeanne put together a fantastic birthday menu (chicken & andouille sausage gumbo, pecan & feta cheese salad, crawfish etouffee, jambalaya, crab cakes, rice and beans and bread pudding)! She was so professional and friendly; it was completely seamless from start to finish. Each dish was better then the next, every single one of my friends loved the food (15 women were very happy with the food!). Everyone raved about the bread pudding! Jeanne and her team made my 30th birthday so special! Thank you so much!
