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.

    Incredible service, food was even better

    From the very start Nick showed his professionalism, attention to detail and culinary genius in planning the catering for our wedding celebration. The food is unparalleled, and our guests couldn’t stop raving about it - the food was the #1 compliment we received from our wedding in May 2019!

    The Real Kitchen team was instrumental in making our big day a success. In addition to planning & executing the delicious menu, Nick also organized all the necessary rentals (linens, flatware, glassware, highboys, cake stand, etc) and made sure to choose value options to help us keep costs conservative. We appreciated how detailed his proposal was compared to other vendors in breaking down all these costs for us. He was transparent throughout the process and also thoughtful - after our tasting we went home with all the leftovers packed up in eco-friendly containers :)

    Nick also provided invaluable help planning our bar (we purchased alcohol outright & are so glad we listened to his advice on which store to use and what to buy). His & Real Kitchen's efforts really made the reception go extremely smoothly and allowed us to kick back and enjoy the evening. What more could you ask for? The service was top notch and the food was even better!

    When we asked to do something a little different for coffee service they were flexible and accommodating. Even in the initial menu proposal they included ingredients from my region of origin which was a really nice personal touch. The room setup was also done perfectly and exactly as we had envisioned it. All of our requests were met with ease and professionalism, and the event went impeccably smoothly. Highly recommend Real Kitchen for their incredible food, professionalism, flexibility, and attention to detail! Great caterer!

    Great service, great food!

    Nick from RealKitchen is very easy to work with. We had a Sunday brunch style wedding and he put a great menu together. Everyone commented on how good the food was. If you want a boring chicken, fish, or red meat set plate menu, go elsewhere. If you want great unique food choices for your wedding, go to Real Kitchen!

    Yummy and Professional

    This review is long overdue for our amazing wedding caterer. Real Kitchen prepared amazing food for our wedding day. We did family style dining but they provide a number of detailed quotes for buffet and a la carte throughout the planning process. They were easy to work with, helping us choose seasonal foods, and adjusting with us as our guest count inevitably changed. Real Kitchen did an absolutely phenomenal job staying in communication throughout the entire process and I would use them again in a heartbeat.
