Catering - Our place or yours.

We use the freshest ingredients to prepare menus specifically tailored to each’s expectations. To use the vernacular, we are serious “foodies”. We have a world of options for your considerations and approval. And all this great food and beverage is served to you by our attentive, kind, and well-trained staff.

We have the resources to provide our catering services onsite at Durham Springs, Culinary Event Center or at another location with our off-premise division, The Upper Crust.  After many years of service in New York City we have moved The Upper Crust, Catering & Events out to Durham Springs to serve this community.
