Davids Catering and Events is pleased to bring to you our unique approach to outdoor event catering. With just a grill and some charcoal, our highly trained chefs create culinary opulence to the delight of your guests. As they arrive their anticipation grows as the unique scents from our grills begin to scintillate their senses. Let our chefs dazzle your guests with a custom created Grilled Flatbread Pizza or freshly grilled Raspberry Habanero Glazed Jumbo Shrimp. Just beyond the chefs is an elaborately decorated bar featuring Pomegranate Martinis, Mojito Cubano, or any variety of signature drink that will reflect the theme of your event, served by professional bartenders.

Our passion comes from the love of good cuisine presented beautifully; our ambition comes from the desire to be your caterer of choice. Special requests, unique challenges, and originality in both cuisine and presentation are our specialties.

All of our culinary creations are hand made from recipes that take traditional fare and transform it into extraordinary eats. A traditional New England Clambake featuring our interactive skiff display, Northern Style Barbeque, Southern Style whole hog pig roast, Hawaiian Luau or Davids Ultimate Grill will satisfy your guest’s anticipations for a traditional cookout but with the flair and creativity that only Davids can provide.
