When searching for a catering company for our wedding we needed someone who would respect our overall philosophy of local and seasonal foods. The company we went with was a restaurant which also had a catering operation, called Prune Restaurant. It helped that my husband had eaten there many times and knew the kind of food they served. Plenty of my friends wedding locations dictated their catering. Some venues have contracts with specific vendors and caterers. They will charge you a fee to use someone else or simply not let you. If you do have a choice make sure you do your research. If you find a company that sounds good, but you have never had their food, ask for referrals.
The girls at 100 Layer Cake and I checked in with some of our favorite foodie friends all over the country to see what the cool more boutique caterer’s were in their cities. Here is our short list by city.
