Does Masterson’s Catering have a specialty cuisine?
The founder, our grandfather Nickolas Mastoras was a Greek immigrant (he Americanized our name to Masterson in the 40’s). We’ve have always had Mediterranean cuisine in our blood. What I love about our family having been doing this for nearly 80 years though is that we have touched virtually every cuisine on this planet.
Do you have a favorite wedding menu items?
I love to do things that again are relevant to the family. Old family recipes or favorites. Twists on the childhood comfort foods of the bride and groom. Foods of the region the bride and groom are from or show off our regional cuisine if a number of the guests are from out of town.
What do you think clients can overlook when choosing their caterer?
The whole picture. Catering is so much more than just the food for 90% of events out there. As unsexy as it sounds, catering is a logistics business. How do you get a quality product and presentation, most efficiently and on time delivered to a client and their guests given constantly changing variables?
What do you do best and why do your clients love you?
Our logistical aptitude I think is just better than everyone else in the market and that comfort and confidence that that infuses in our staff I think translates into a good calm bedside manner if you will. You only get that from experience and no one in town has more than Masterson’s.
