About Real Kitchen

Weddings are an exciting—and sometimes overwhelming-- opportunity to plan a celebration that speaks perfectly to you. When it comes to the food, it can be daunting to match typical catering menu choices to your one-of-a-kind wedding. This is where we come in.

At Real Kitchen, we don’t believe in pre-set menus or budget minimums. We work with you to create a completely custom menu that perfectly matches your tastes, style, and budget. Whether you’re planning a formal ballroom dinner or a casual party under the moonlight, we have the passion and expertise to make your unique vision real and unforgettable. Tell us about your vision. We’ll take care of the rest.

To begin planning your wedding with our executive chef Nick Schmuck, call us at 773-281-2888 or email catering@realkitchenchicago.com.

    Fantastic Wedding Caterer

    Nick and his team at Real Kitchen did an amazing job catering our wedding. Often times, guests go into a wedding expecting the food to be mediocre, but our guests are still raving to us about how good each of their meals were! Nick did an amazing job creating a menu that reflected the food tastes my husband and I have, and he managed to accommodate all of our guests’ many different dietary restrictions. The staff working our wedding were extremely professional, organized, and pleasant. They were very attentive to all of our guests and ensured the food and drinks were served on time and plated to the appropriate person without having to ask each guest what they ordered. Finally, our bartenders were also amazing. They made our specialty cocktails perfectly and engaged in fun interactions with our guest. We could not recommend Real Kitchen enough for a wedding or special events catering-they do fantastic work!

    My husband and I made a point to only working with vendors who were easy to work with, flexible, responsive and organized. Real Kitchen was all of that and more. Nick, the executive chef was amazing to work with and such a talented chef. We never worried once during the whole wedding planning process because Nick and his staff were so incredible. We did not work with a wedding planner and we still felt so relaxed and everything went so smoothly. Even the pickiest of eaters at our wedding had clean plates and were raving about the food! Quality and perfection! Highly recommended.

    Nick and the members of Real Catering were fun and great to work with. Nick accommodated apps requested by us that he doesn't normally do and they turned out great. He provided guidance when we needed it, but let us plan the food and service based on our preference. His serving staff was sweet and efficient. Everything turned out perfect! We were really impressed with their professionalism, the food and service.
