This review is long overdue. "Best wedding, best food ever." That's all we keep hearing from our guests. Not only did FIG do an incredible job making sure there was an abundance of food for my guests but that food was beyond delicious. Restaurant quality food, creative menu, and an incredible work ethic. To top it all off, Nick assigned someone to make sure that my husband and I were well fed and had everything we needed (second serving, a drink, anything). We were blown away by the attention we received and were incredibly grateful we found time to enjoy all the deliciousness ourselves. Whenever we had to implement unexpected changes to the event plan Nick worked tirelessly to ensure that the budget took as minimal a hit as possible from a catering perspective. Nick's thoughtful and practical advice (from years of running events) also helped us deliver an incredible experience from start to finish for our guests. I would highly recommend Nick and his team for any event!

Nick and FIG are fantastic. We threw an "at-home" wedding reception after our destination wedding for about 110 people. Nick was very flexible and got really creative with our ideas - we decided to make the event a fiesta with upscale Mexican cuisine and drinks and he came up with the most creative and interesting menu we had seen from all the caterers we contacted. He's very willing to adjust the menu and rental order to work within your budget. We had a thousand questions leading up to the event and Nick was so patient and happy to be a resource as we needed it. You will get an incredible value from FIG. Our friends and family raved about the food and drinks. Nick even sent us home with the leftovers so we're still enjoying it. I would highly recommend Nick & FIG without hesitation and hope to have the opportunity to hire them again someday!

Working with Nick from FIG was absolutely wonderful from beginning to end! Food is clearly his passion and art, and he is so easy to work with and helpful throughout the entire process. We easily fell in love with his food that he made for us at our tasting, and then everyone else also had wonderful compliments about the food, especially the steak and scallops, at our wedding. Nick had pointed out to us before hand that he would make sure my husband and I were eating, and that was definitely the case. As the bride and groom, we were taking pictures during cocktail hour, and one of the servers made sure to find us and give us our own special plate of the hors d'ouevres even though we were no where near the cocktail hour/reception tent location. I am so thankful that Nick was willing to travel from North Jersey to Southern Cumberland County, to visit the venue, meet my husband and I, and to also meet for one last planning/final meeting ahead of time at such a unique and unconventional venue. The service, attention to detail, and the food were all absolutely wonderful. Thank you FIG!

We went with F.I.G. for my father’s surprise birthday party and they did not disappoint. From the very beginning Nicholas was extremely responsive and easy to get in touch with. He drove out of his way to meet with us at the venue which was much appreciated. The end cost was a bit more expensive than we had initially hoped but Nicholas was very forthcoming with the pricing and listed everything out for us to clearly understand. He was very easy to work with and had wonderful options for food. Nicholas was at the event working hard in the kitchen with the chef the entire time and the food ended up being absolutely delicious. It was beautifully prepared and tasted amazing! Planning a party can be stressful and planning a surprise party is even more stressful but Nicholas and F.I.G. helped make the catering portion an absolute breeze! Would definitely work with them again!

Nick from F.I.G. Catering was an awesome one man show! We had an event of about 40 people and everyone raved about the food. He came prepared with more than enough food, beautiful serve ware and was more than happy to tweak items for guests with diet restrictions. He also was more than happy to jump in and help with other items that were outside the scope of the menu we discussed like cutting the cake etc. I’m so happy we went with Nick and his company and would definitely recommend.

Details: Party host • Shower (bridal, baby, etc.) • Lunch • American - casual • Asian • Italian • Mediterranean / Middle Eastern • Buffet / self serve • Only drop off is necessary • Home • Yes - full kitchen (oven, stove, refrigerator, sink, and utensils) • 21 - 30 guests • Serving/warming trays, dishes, and utensils • Standard (basic ingredients)

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Our pricing is competitive and we are willing to work within most budgets. We typically use higher end ingredients than most caterer's and this is sometimes reflected in our pricing, however, we are always willing to work within a stated budget. We eat the food we prepare, and we live by the principle you are what you eat. We are honest about the ingredients we use, where they come from, and what each budget will allow for. For Example: Many times caterers will put "filet mignon" on your menu, and while it may be filet, it is a low-quality product. We never do this. Our expertise in the kitchen and knowledge of product allows us to expand our options. We will work with clients to offer different options that are within their budget but still of high quality.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    Normally we work to set a menu based upon the client's desires, time of year/day the food is being served, and the type of service (plated, hor d'oeuvres, etc). Next we determine what service staff or rentals are needed, and how they will fit with the overall design and theme of the event. Typically if a client would like to sit down for a consultation, we encourage it. Normally for larger events, we would insist upon it. Once all major elements of the event have been affirmed, we are committed to maintaining open and consistent communication with the client. We are always available, and all of our clients work directly with Nick or Beau during the entire process, from quote until well after the event.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    Together we have spent over three decades working in and around the kitchen. Culinary Diplomas, Sommelier certifications, Service Awards, Wine spectator awards, Features in various publications.....Yet what truly matters is our years of experience honing our list of "what if we could run things our way" ; FIG is the result.
