AMAZING Wedding food (Yes you read that right!)
My wife and I had our wedding catered through LM Catering on September 7th, 2019 at City View Loft and we are incredibly happy about the decision to use them!!Sent on 09/11/2019
This was no ordinary wedding food, and we heard nothing but great things on the day of the wedding! It's hard to create truly amazing food, and it's a Herculean task to create it for 150 people, but LM can and did!!
My wife and I ordered the NY Strip Steak, Pan Seared Chicken Breast, and Roasted Cauliflower Steak for our wedding guests, and I have yet to hear anything but rave reviews from our guests! We had guests actually come up to us and tell us they would order this food if it was available at a restaurant, that's how good they said it was! I can't remember the last time I thought that about food at a wedding, but after dealing with LM Catering, I'm not surprised!!
From the tasting, to the big day, these caterers do NOT disappoint! If you have the option to use them, or are looking at their venue space, City View Loft in Chicago, PLEASE...pick them!!

Best wedding food you will ever have.
My husband and I had previously been to a wedding at Lacuna Lofts that used LM catering for their wedding and we were blown away. This is the best wedding food I have ever had. From apps to the maid dish nothing disappointed. This was our first experience with LM catering and was a large factor in choosing Lacuna as our wedding venue a few years later.Sent on 10/02/2019
When choosing your wedding menu about 6 months from your date you will have a tasting. Depending on the package you have chosen you are able to choose several options from each category to taste test prior to making your final decisions. This tasting exceeded my expectations. We chose our tasting options and upon arrival at the test kitchen we were greated with a glass of wine and a full tasting experiance.
The tasting began in a smaller "bar" like room where we had a glass of wine and the appetizers we had chosen. We were given tasting booklets for notes as to not confuse any of the dishes. Once we had completed the first part of the course "cocktail hour" we were then ushered into a seperate room for entrees "the reception". Everything we tasted was great, and the things that we were less excited about were taken into consideration. For example, we like one sauce over another and they simply switched it out, no questions asked. The flexibility was refreshing and really made it start to feel like this was "our day". At the end of the meal we were torn but were told we didnt need to make any decisions until closer to the date. We then went home and mulled over our options before making a final decision.
For the wedding we chose steak and chicken for our meals along with 3 appetizers (one veggie, 1 beef, 1 pork), and homemade cookies for desert. What really sets this company apart, and is the reason that I am giving them such high praise is because of the way the protein is cooked. LM cooks all of their protein via sous vid, making each and every peice cooked to perfection. My husband and I both choose the steak for dinner and it is one of the most tender steaks I have ever had. If you caterer is not using sous vide it is unlinkely that you will get consistant temps throughout each and every peice of meat. for those that have never heard of sous vide please take a moment to google it as it really made the difference in having an amazing wedding.
As for the catering team in general. They were helpful, attentive, and went above and beyond to make our day special. Every request was taken and exceeded our expectations. To save on time my husband and I had our salads on the roof while everyone was entering the reception and finding their seats. It was amuch needed moment just the 2 of us. Later into the night we were running out of alcohol.. I know, scary. Rather than waiting until everything was gone, my husband was quietly approached with the situation, to which upon approval they ran out and purchased more on our behalf. It was a simple gesture that was so helpful. Lastly, unknowingly we did not have coffee and tea included in our package. Rather than tell those asking no, somone ran to the local coffee shop for coffee.... I mean come on. LITERALLY did a coffee run for my grandma. Talk about accommodating.
All in all, Ricardo and his team truly made this our "best day ever"
