catering

intro

Feast Your Eyes has been part of Philadelphia’s catering tradition since 1982. We are a food-centric caterer that knows your event is about you, not us, and that the catered experience is about all that goes into a party: fab food, stellar service, a tempting tablescape, great hospitality, and more. When it comes to the food and service aspects, we’ve got that covered in spades. We also frequently handle valet parking, tent design and other event aspects for clients.


corporate

Great food and service are important at every catered event. At business gatherings other details gain prominence: punctuality for drop off orders, super smooth logistics when loading and unloading in office buildings, sensitivity to a company’s culture, and knowing the goal of the event’s host. Whether full service catering or Take Out orders, we hit every bull’s eye like William Tell.

personal entertaining

Nothing is more gracious than inviting guests to your private event, be it a wedding, mitzvah, momentous birthday, or an intimate evening at your home with close friends. When the guest list is smaller your menu can be very adventurous and we’re glad to explore with you. When your event’s larger we’ll expertly guide you in choosing a tasty, intriguing menu accessible to all your guests. Some menu ideas are shown below. We’d love to craft one just for you……

essen modern kosher

Essen means “eat” in Yiddish, and is usually said as a direct command mixed with love, the way your grandmother would say what you’re supposed to do next.

Moving to our new home at Front & Palmer gave us the opportunity to open our kosher
catering service, Essen Modern Kosher Catering. We are supervised by Traditional Supervision, Inc., and offer kosher catering at both our site and off-premise locations.

We’ve added our 20+ years of catering experience to our personal background of a
childhood with two sets of everyday dishes and turning the kitchen inside out for Pesach, along with knowing how to create fantastic, modern cuisine while observing kashrut.

We’d love to be a part of your family celebrations and holidays. Essen mit gezunt.

b'nai mitzvah

Occasionally we cater a bar or bat mitzvah for parents whose wedding we catered, or sometimes we even catered the bride or groom's mitzvah celebration! Other times it’s the family’s first b’nai mitzvah. Either way, we have tons of experience with the bubbies and zada’s, the kids, and of course the menus. Separate menus for your child and their friends are standard fare, but of course not a requirement. What is required is a warm, welcoming meal and we’ve got that covered. Mitzvah celebrations can be anything from quiet to quite-the-thing; we’ve done them all.
