Catering in Southfield outside Detroit?

Hey 'hounds! I'm not sure if I'm posting this in the right place, or if this is even too commercial to be on the boards at all, but I'll give it a shot and I'm sure the answers will present themselves.

A company I do some work for has an office here in Southfield where we do a lot of all-day/multiple day meetings with breakfast, lunch and dinner all catered in. Well, we're still working out the kinks in the catering and we've reached a new low with catering from the nearby Marriott. It's dreadful. I'm looking at it right now. And occasionally poking it.

What we need is a genuinely food-loving and, ideally, relatively local business to do our catering. The person whose job it is to organize this is based in Chicago and has no real knowledge of the area, which I think is why he just went with a big place like Marriott. Has anyone had really great experiences with a caterer or know of a reputable company?

Thanks for all your help, both with this question and my past ones!

  1. Matt Prentice Restaurant Group (of many local restaurants Shiraz, Northern Lakes Seafood) does catering. I have no idea if it is good or not as I'm new to the area, but it should be better than the Marriott at least.

    1. re: wonderin32

      Matt Prentice is a good suggestion. Website is

      Offhand, I would also throw in the following additional three suggestions:

      ~Vineyards Marketplace, located in Southfield area, website:

      ~Pronto Restaurant, located in Royal Oak, website:

      ~Papa Joe's, located in Birmingham, website:

    2. Thanks, both of you! I'll be passing along all three of these suggestions, plus any more that appear (hint, hint directed at people reading this).
