As Washington, D.C. natives and co-owners of the award-winning Equinox Restaurant for nineteen years, Chef Todd Grey and his wife Ellen Kassoff have always had their fingers on the pulse of the D.C. culinary scene. Chef Gray, well -established in European technique, offers sophisticated, pure American cuisine, with a Mid-Atlantic regionally-inspired palate.
We discovered catering just weeks after opening when one of our best clients asked if we would consider catering a business dinner in their home. We didn’t hesitate! In fact, we wondered why we didn't have catering in our original business plan. We immediately fell in love with catering – the exciting venues, the festive party planning—and of course, the thrill of seeing an event come to life.
We have created a business model that has been incredibly successful for almost 20 years. As a result, we are adept at planning, executing and refining our catering services. We understand that our clients don’t want run-of-the-mill events—they want something new and different to call their own. So, we customize each menu with a unique personal touch, using seasonal, regionally-sourced ingredients. In addition to our extensive range of enticing menu options, we also offer vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free catering. Our priority is to listen to your needs, delight your guests, and attend to every detail so that your event planning is as seamless and effortless as possible.
We stay true to the mission to utilize community-sourced, organic ingredients grown within 100 miles, whenever possible.
