If a party is in your future, Denver has no shortage of caterers who are ready to turn your celebration into a memorable event. Choose from caterers with farms, barbeques, food trucks and full-service catering.

Epicurian Catering

6800 S. Xanthia St.
Centennial, CO 80112

Large or small, there is nothing that Epicurean can’t handle. The caterer oversees Sports Authority Field catering for gala events, weddings, corporate meetings, as well as smaller wood-fired pizzas and food truck parties. As for the menu, nothing is off the table. Popular trends include deconstructed antipasto tables with a harvest of Italian grilled vegetables, olive bars and local cheeses. Epicurean has even taken this idea and made it an interactive moving table that mingles among the guests. As said, nothing is off the table.

Kevin Taylor Restaurant Group

Kevin Taylor’s Restaurant Group catering is where art and cuisine meet. It manage more menus and venues than any other group in town. Here is the short list: Restaurant Kevin Taylor, Prima Ristorante, Kevin Taylor’s at the Opera House, The Denver Art Museum, Denver Center for Performing Arts, The Chambers Grant Salon and The Studio Loft. As for the menu, while each of these places has its own menu, Kevin Taylor isn’t above mixing and matching a small plate from one menu and an entrée from another.

Biscuits and Berries

16027 W. 5th Ave.
Golden, CO 80401

If you just start with the name, savory and sweet biscuits are a staple at Biscuits and Berries, including strawberry shortcake, parmesan and thyme biscuits and English scones.
