Birthday catering in DC

Anyone got a good caterer for 40 people & my mother's 95th in Georgetown. Would rather not go the Whole Foods, Dean & Deluca path.

Crabs would be nice !!!

Best for yr New Year

  1. Do you mean steamed blue crabs? That would be expensive and not worth the expense in a home-catering situation. They'd have to be made off-site and trust me, steamed crabs don't travel well.

    Given that this is for your elderly mother in Georgetown, I'm guessing she's a traditionalist, and perhaps a long-time Washingtonian, so why not go with a traditional DC-area caterer like Ridgewell's?
