    Easy Breezy Beautiful!

    Suzy was incredible! She made the process of planning my out-of-state wedding reception so simple. I loved how organized she was and timely, as well. We already loved Chive’s food, but now I can honestly say we love Suzy, too! The food was outstanding! We received many compliments from my meat and cheese-loving omnivore family members. One family member said it was the best mostaccioli she’s ever eaten! Finally, the staff was friendly and the decor was lovely, minimalistic and exactly what I wanted. I was confident that I had nothing to worry about because Suzy completely understood my vision. A wonderful day was had and enjoyed by all! Thank you again for everything Suzy! We will visit again soon!

    Chive's reply:

    Thank you for the kind words. I hope you guys have been well and enjoying your new married adventure together. Salud!

    So Amazing!

    I had a wonderful experience with Chive Kitchen as my wedding caterer. Trying to plan a wedding in the middle of COVID-19 was difficult, but Chive Kitchen worked with us and made our dream wedding possible. Chive took care of all of the decor, flowers, floor plan and cake. All of my guests raved about their food and I was truly blown away by how beautiful everything turned out.
