About St. Louis Science Center

Starlite Catering.

Though the name is inspired by the most romantic starlit venue in St. Louis, we take our menu styling from a classic “Mod” film that captures the very essence of all things Simple, Classic and Glamorous: Breakfast at Tiffany’s. It was strictly mambo and Martinis when Holly Golightly threw a cocktail party, and with her little black dress and cigarette holder, nobody would notice she hadn't made any food.

While we love Holly’s style, our customers certainly expect more, so we offer our a broad range of service styles, price points, and menu selections with customized options to fit the most discerning tastes, all infused with classic culinary underpinnings, overlaid with a fresh modern style.

Our Culinary and Event philosophy is that a simple aesthetic is a complicated illusion. Effortlessness carried off by skill, innovation and attention to detail. The beauty of our menu is that it is inspired by the Mod era, but the preparation and presentation are for the contemporary customer. The menu includes an array of perfectly charred steaks and chops, treasure like novelty hors d'oeuvres and iconic period dishes like Oysters Rockefeller. Paired with a perfect Manhattan or a huge California Red, your guests are sure to feel like a celebrity of old.

We endeavor to make the Science Center that special place to host an event with the comfort of a "home away from home", but as fine as any great American steak house. Carefully selected cuts of beef are seared to perfection every time. The freshest seafood is delivered just hours before being served. Wholesome vegetables are grown locally and harvested seasonally. Irresistible desserts are created on-premise – lifting the eyebrows of the most discriminating diner. Fresh and exciting menus are prepared with the pride and attention that you would expect from the most revered restaurants.

This is the place where you want to come with your family, friends and coworkers to celebrate or relax, either way is ok, because it is always done right.

    An extraordinary experience!

    EXCEEDED EXPECTATIONS! WOW! DESTINATION WEDDING RIGHT HERE IN OUR TOWN! St. Louis Science Center along w/ Starlite Events did an AMAZING job on our reception. As an extremely detailed oriented person, I was very demanding on what had to happen at our event. To say the least, Starlite Events brought their A game and did not miss one single thing!
    Comments from our guests included “Food was amazing!” TRUE! Five star chef quality! Trust me when I say BEST WEDDING FOOD EVER! After attending an event at the Planetarium, that is what brought us back to the Science Center for our event. “Food on my plate was steaming hot” (Always a problem for most buffets but not the Science Center!) “There was never a wait at the bar” (They staffed 3 bars with 2 bartenders plus a bar back!) Staff was courteous and kind throughout the evening and handled our 250 plus guests like it was 50. It is the small details that your guests will remember.
    The cocktail hour in the new Game XP exhibit was truly mind blowing and every guest from age 13-87 participated. How many times can you say that EACH AND EVERY ONE of your guests participated in every part of your reception? The Science Center even put on a scientific edible experiment that had our guests enamored and delighted with an adult version of Dip-n-Dots made with liquid nitrogen. “Tipsy Dots” were a HUGE HIT! Guests still raving about it!
    The Boeing Hall space is large enough so that you can accommodate any group size and not feel cramped. Should you need a small event space, it can be walled. I wish Starlite Events at the St. Louis Science Center could hear every compliment that our guests shared with me. Thanks to Jeff & Brittany for making my daughter’s every dream, every detail become a reality.
