Restaurants with Catering


Recommended Posts

Of course most restaurants in Vancouver have some form of large-party or banquet services for big groups, but I'm looking for a list of restaurants (not catering companies, though I hear some are quite decent) that do off-site catering for private events.

Here is a list of restaurants that definitely do catering:

Diva at the Met

CRU Restaurant

Elixir @ OPUS

Amici

Pacific Institute of Culinary Arts

C Restaurant

Coast

Glowbal

And to clarify, a lot of restaurants such as West 'cater' but only for private functions at the restaurant - this list is specifically off-site catering.

Any more to add guys?

EDIT: New to the list from replies:

Rodney's Oyster House (No Vancouver site available, but they have a Yaletown location)

Joe Fortes

Aurora Bistro

I also think Coast and Glowbal do off-site catering, but I'm not sure.

You may add to this list Rodney's Oyster House, which does a oyster and raw bar (with charming props) as well as hot seafood service. The oyster station is a terrific add-on for a summer BBQ. And Yoshi Tabo (the Bluewater sushi chef) used to deliver platters of same before he started his evening shift.

revasser,

just got back from a long vacation and am quickly skimming through the various threads and yours caught my attention for a mere second! off site catering by restaurants is really rarely done because of the usual high overhead BUT - i was fortunate enough to attend to functions catered by glowbal catering - one in Whistler for a private diamond mine owner - unbelievable - seared foi gras, crab risotto, sushi, oyster-lobster and prawn bar absolutely top marks with excellent execution. personally when you are surrounded by people with money and lots of it you better not fail - they showed everyone how to do it right! I also was asked to attend a private BMW event with all the top CEO's and glowbal once again set the standards high and delivered it well. not sure if they have info on their website but it is worth checking out!
