Jordan's Food of Distinction has a history of creating memorable events. We hope you give us the opportunity to create a wonderful event experience for you and your guests.
Our commitment to excellence never varies. Our team is passionate about entertaining, and their culinary expertise, creativity, and attention to detail ensure that every event is created and executed with the highest of standards.
JFOD has built its reputation for exquisite food and impeccable service through our five years of extraordinary business. As your event partner, JFOD works on Menu Development and Culinary Styling, and will also guide you through a venue selection for your next event to make sure it has the perfect setting.
JFOD takes pride in buying locally grown organic foods, hormone and antibiotic free beef and poultry, recycling, and using biodegradable products. Giving back to the community and taking care of our planet is a serious concern of our business. Going green is not just a fashion, but also a necessary way of life in the 21st century, and we do this by offering organic local cuisine and humanely treated meats. Beyond the food, JFOD offers a variety of green services including green event planning, organic florist treatments, and biodegradable or wildflower invitations.
At an early age, our founder Jordan Spritz developed a profound respect for ingredients while working at a local farmer’s market on Chicago’s North Shore. In the fresh air, he studied produce seasonality and selection, heightening his respect for each individual ingredient.
From there, he took his first kitchen job at a private country club and developed his skills in catering large-scale events, upwards of 5000 guests. Pairing his love for cooking with knowledge of event planning from his uncle, Chuck Share, owner of the upscale Wedding Inc., Jordan found he could succeed in planning and catering large events with the feel of intimate fine dining.
Jordan linked up with Gordon’s renowned chef, Don Yamaguchi, beginning the lessons that would refine his culinary capabilities. With a desire to continue his epicurean education, Jordan headed to the Culinary Institute of America in New York. There he polished his technique, style, and presentation among America’s culinary new guard.
Returning after graduation to his hometown of Chicago, he worked at Le Francais and Charlie Trotter’s while catering private parties on Chicago’s North Shore for friends and family.
Jordan longed for a space of his own to plan and create intimate events. After stumbling upon a loft-like space, Jordan created a new style of private dining. This space includes a fully exposed show kitchen, no walls and an original 126-year-old wrought iron window separating the dining room and showing off the cleanliness of the dish area. The goal was to leave nothing to the imagination.
Today Jordan is owner and executive chef of Jordan’s Food of Distinction.

Highly recommend JFOD!
I had the opportunity to work with JFOD at Stan Mansion and all I can say is that they are amazing! The food is absolutely delicious and the customer service is great! They are very professional and take good care of their customers. Ben, who is usually here in charge of the events, is absolutely AMAZING! He is so helpful and attentive to details and always responsive. He is just an awesome person to work with!Sent on 04/02/2020

Great Food & Drinks!
JFOD was one of the preferred vendors for our wedding venue, Stan Mansion, and they were amazing to work with. We worked with Pam (owner), Jamie (catering), and Ben (bar) and I cannot recommend them enough. Pam, Jamie, Ben, and all of the rest of the JFOD staff were super attentive, helped us with recommendations, were open to any feedback, and they made us feel so comfortable knowing that they were taking care of everything from linens to chairs to table settings to food and the bar. And the food was delicious - and not just wedding food delicious, but restaurant delicious. We received so many compliments on our appetizers, our main course, the sweets table, and the late night snack. If I'm ever catering another event, JFOD will definitely be my preferred caterer!Sent on 01/04/2019

JFOD is *so* much more than a catering company. My husband and I used them for our wedding, and they were able to walk through our venue (my parent's house) and envision (and execute) a complete makeover of the home to transform the space into a true venue. They were respectful of our budget, created a delicious multi-coursed meal that was food allergy friendly, attentive to all the details, and helpful and excited along the way. They made the evening easy by taking care of everything (including handling re-stocking of the bathroom!!). They do so much more than just food - if you hire JFOD you get a whole event planning team.Sent on 01/21/2019
