Wedding and Event Catering

Chef James worked with us on very short notice to create a perfect Tapas menu and was able to create numerous exceptional dishes onboard a sailing charter for our micro wedding . Both the food and service were impeccable. I can’t thank them enough for working together with our other vendors seamlessly to create such an amazing event.

Chef James was amazing. The servers were great too. He just catered our Memorial Day party. Everything was so delicious. I can’t wait to have him here again.

Liberty street events were amazing. I live in Atlanta, Georgia and they worked with me and help me surprise my best friend for his birthday who lives in cliffside park NJ. James and his crew really deliver beyond my expectations. Not to mention that cake from their sister company is to die for.

I can’t say enough good things about James. I’ll try to make this short and sweet. Chef James was able to squeeze me in with just 3 day notice. I sent him some different type of dishes I like and he came up with an amazing menu for the evening. He showed up an hour and half before anyone else did to start prepping. The quality of food the man put out was second to none! The flavor that the food had I was literally stunned. Not only did he do an amazing job with the food his assistant mark was by far one of the most attentive servers I ever had the pleasure to deal with. They left my kitchen exactly how it was before they started to cook. I couldn’t believe how clean everything was once they were finished. Don’t waste your time looking for other chef James is your guy! I’m literally thinking of the next event so I could hire James again. James and mark thank you guys for an phenomenal experience.

Chef James and his team were amazing. They were incredibly attentive, and went above and beyond with the service itself, taking care of every detail and leaving the kitchen spotless. And the food! It was delicious. All of my guests were blown away and so impressed. I would definitely recommend them and hope to hire them again myself in the future!
