Hire Kitchenina for your special day!!!

Definitely definitely definitely get Kitchenina for your wedding!!!!

Everything was fantastic from the service, to the staff, and the food - out of this world. We got SO many compliments from our guests about how delicious the food was and it was just incredible. One of my sisters had never had bacon wrapped dates before and when we served them during cocktail hour she had to fill up her napkin with several! And everyone loved the tri tip and chicken thighs that I’m so glad we were able to provide seconds for people!

Use Kitchenina for your special day!

They helped take care of everything including set up and it was such a relief to not have to worry about anything the day of.

Make sure to get their bacon wrapped dates, barbecue bourbon meatballs, caprese salad skewers, tri tip and the honey guava chicken thighs especially! You will never have had anything like it and you’ll want it again - I guarantee it.

Thank you so so much to Aliki for being there on our day, but also just staying in touch religiously for everything we needed to finalize before the wedding. She and her husband, Kostas, were amazing and I hope we can have another event to work with them again. I’ll be dreaming of their amazing food until then!

love love love Kitchenina!

We loved having Kitchenina cater our wedding! The menu had a lot to pick from and everything at the wedding was just as amazing as our initial tasting. We got so many comments from our guests about how good the food was and the amazing bar service as well. The whole team was so nice and helpful throughout the whole process it took a lot of the stress away as we were planning :D

You should absolutely use Kitchenina

TLDR: Aliki, Kostas, and the entire Kitchenina crew were incredible to work with. They were communicative, efficient, and alleviated so much stress before and during the day, and most importantly, the food was amazing!!!
We started working with Aliki and Kostas almost a year before our wedding. We didn’t love any of the vendors on our venue's preferred list so we went looking for better and found Kitchenina. Our first experience with them was a tasting that was basically a 5 course meal. We got to try multiple appetizers, side dishes, entrees, and a salad. Needless to say, it was delicious. I keep asking Kostas if he will bottle the sauce he used for the salmon so I can buy it.
On the day of our wedding their team was amazing. They transformed an empty museum exhibit hall into our reception dinner in less than 2 hours, setting up 19 tables, 2 buffets, 2 bars, and a sweetheart table. All 190 guests had been served and finished eating in less than an hour. We never had to worry about a single thing on the day, if anything came up, we never noticed and they didn’t tell us haha. The food was so good we were excited to eat the leftovers for the next week!
We also were purchasing our own alcohol for the reception and Aliki let us ask her bar manager tons of questions so we could make sure we had enough variety and quantity in our alcohol and mixers.
We cannot recommend Kitchenina enough, they were amazing to work with, incredibly kind, and remarkably talented.
