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.

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.

Second Runner Up

Although we didn't choose them as our caterer, Jordan's Food of Distinction did not disappoint. From the moment we had our phone consultation, the owner and her team assisted us with trying to find ways to stay within our budget. Her kindness did not go unnoticed, and is greatly appreciated!

Awesome food, awesome service

Loved working with Ricky and JFOD. They catered our wedding, including Spritzology cocktails, linens and full furniture setup and room flip. Ricky was incredibly informative and helpful planning our menu and walking us through how everything would work, and helping us achieve our vision. The staff day-of was amazing – everybody I encountered went above and beyond to make our wedding run smoothly and to make us and our guests feel like royalty!

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Can't wait to work with Jordan's again!

The team at Jordan's Food of Distinction is amazing - for anyone planning a wedding or event, you want Jordan's on your team. Their experience, professionalism, and food is unique and unmatched.

We had quite a few hiccups when planning our wedding and Jordan's was so flexible and helpful through out the entire process. They even helped us find a new venue when our previous one cancelled on us with a little under 3 months to go.

From the beginning, Jordan's food was top-notch and the pricing was hard to beat. Ricky, Pam, and Jordan were solution-oriented and transparent. We found working with them to be fun and collaborative. On our wedding day they did a fantastic job in a challenging and new space for them. Our wedding guests were so impressed with the food and loved everything Jordan's had to offer. We can't wait to work with them again for another event in the future!
