Services Offered

Green Zebra Catering works with local farmers in Rochester to obtain the freshest, best-quality ingredients. Their wedding menus feature stationed and passed hors d'oeuvres for cocktail hour, buffets and food stations or customized plated dinners and dessert. Dishes vary depending on the season, but possibilities include braised leg of lamb, seared scallops, or pan-seared wild Alaskan halibut. Green Zebra also hosts intimate private events at their venue, The Space @ Green Zebra. The space is limited up to 50 seated guests or 75 guests for cocktail style affairs. We apologize, but we cannot accommodate any more than this number of guests.

    Catering with Passion

    We met Lindsay and her crew at Green Zebra as a happy accident during one of her dinner events about a year and a half ago. Admittedly, we were supposed to be going to a tasting with another caterer when things fell through last minute and we got tickets to a dinner at Green Zebra. My fiance (now husband), dad and I were impressed by her space, food, and welcoming attitude. Lindsay is the kind of person that makes you feel like you've known her for years and she has great enthusiasm for piecing together her menus and meticulously ensuring each plate of food delivered is to her and your standards. Upon first meeting her, you can tell that she's very passionate about what she does and her food is some of the best and most well balanced in the area! Her menus are very thoughtful and she will carefully orchestrate your dream in terms of catering, all the while giving you feedback and speaking to you about seasonality to ensure the freshest best tasting meals. Her plates are artfully composed while the food is still approachable.

    Since our first meeting, we have frequented Green Zebra multiple times to savor her food. She was very understanding of my dietary restrictions having undergone weight loss surgery as well as being mindful of any allergies in our group. There has been nothing that she's made that we didn't enjoy substantially! Give yourself the opportunity to go taste some of her incredible dishes and set up a meeting so that you can share your event dreams with her. If you were a foodie and truly looking to invest in the best for your event, don't hesitate to reach out to her team. You won't regret it!
