I wish I could've selected all the highlights because The Kitchen Finessers did an amazing job for my husband's birthday dinner!! They were an amazing team and their energy was awesome. I'm so happy that I went them. The food was impeccable and very flavorful!! I definitely have them locked in as my go to for any event or setting. For a bunch of fellas they came through with a main course consisting of some of the best wagyu they had ever had. It really was an amazing experience that they help create. Presentation was also very much on point!!

Details: Brunch / dinner party • 11 - 20 guests • Dinner • Dessert • Premium (high end ingredients) • Dessert • American - casual • American - formal • Southern • Barbecue • Italian • Mediterranean / Middle Eastern • Vegetarian or vegan • Meal prepared onsite • Only once • My home, venue, etc.

Chef Onyi was great from start to finish! Great communication and energy. Made it so fun for our last night in HTX for my best friend’s Bachelorette. The food & drink presentation was beautiful and delicious. Please let us know when you’re in NYC and would recommend her to others.

I had Onyi cater my child’s birthday party and the food was an absolute hit! Everyone was talking about the jollof rice and chicken days following the party. Will definitely have more entrees at the next event!
