Karen from Edgemont writes: Can you recommend a few good area caterers?

Thanks, Karen. Over the years, I’ve had the opportunity to use some excellent caterers—but I had to sift through some of the worst first. Here are a few top choices to consider.

J. Scott Catering
Scott Walsh is the James Brown of the catering industry—the hardest-working man in the biz. Through economic good times and into the current recession, Walsh has endured client budget cutbacks and requests for presentation downsizing, maintaining a well-deserved rep as one of the area’s best event specialists. And J. Scott is available everywhere—from major estates to banquet venues, board rooms to backyards. Visit jscottcatering.com.

Catering By Design
I’ve always considered Peter Loevy and Dan Love to be the Lerner and Loewe of the food-service world. Few companies can match their skill, note for note—or, in this case, bite for bite. I’m usually not a fan of “by design” in company titles, but CBD truly lives up to its name with stunning visuals like florals branching along serving stations and geometrically enhanced fare rising artistically across the plate. CBD also employs some of the most professional servers in the industry. Visit cateringbd.com.

Drexelbrook Catering
One of Delaware County’s most notable banquet venues also offers exceptional catering services. Working with Drexelbrook, you not only enjoy the finest-quality foods brought to you by A-team staffers, but most jobs also come with Drexelbrook’s managing partner, Domenick Savino, who personally oversees each off-site function.
