Private Dinner

I have to organize a very fancy dinner for 12 people in a private place and I would love to have some tips from you.


- Best places for rental supplies;

- I need some names of famous and good chefs in Los Angeles (contemporary food)

Problem: we cannot have someone cooking in the space that the dinner is gonna be served.

Is there any possibility of hiring a chef who could bring his own supplies and maybe a truck where he could make the dinner?

  1. New York Food Company can do what you are looking for.

    1. Along Came Mary (www.alongcamemary.com). Ask for Janine Micucci. Owner, Mary Micucci is the "epicurean Spielberg." She'll do something incredible. Impeccable service. Build a kitchen anywhere, no problem. Feed 10 with delicious, sexy food and grace or wow AAA celebs at a party for 6000. Done.

      1. Most "famous" chefs are available for private dining. Not sure if they can accomodate your challenges - but you can always ask what they can do.

        Along Came Mary may well be the best "caterer" in town, but if you're looking for a world class chef, inquire at any of the better restaurants - Josiah Citrin from Melisse, Alain Giraud, etc.

          Agreed on Citrin, Giraud, but do they cater? If they do, wow.

            I've been to an even that Citrin catered. And I would bet that Giraud would do it. Not sure about the truck part (sounds more like a Top Chef challenge).
