40 Years of Paris!
2013 is a big year for us as we are celebrating our 40th anniversary! Just to think, Paris Caterers was started one cold day on January 3, 1973, in a small living room by one person with a dream & a phone- Chef William De Paris. Thinking back to the first successful event for the Brazilian Naval Attache in Washington, DC; This was only the beginning of thousands of events to follow throughout the years. Over the years, Paris Caterers has evolved into more than just food.
Paris offers a one-stop-shop for all your event needs, including event rental equipment, in-house floral shop, lighting & sound. Even though Paris Caterers has grown into a large company, we still maintain the personalized attention with each client. For 40 years, Paris Caterers has been a part of the Washington Metropolitan Area event scene by being a boutique option, providing contemporary cuisines by always keeping in pace with new and upcoming culinary trends designed for the needs of today’s professionals and fine gourmets.
The Paris Culinary team offers authentic Argentinean, Austrian, Azeri, Brazilian, Chilean, Danish, Eastern European, French, German, Italian, Middle Eastern, North African (Algeria, Libyan, Morocco, Tunisia, Egyptian), Persian, Peruvian, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Swedish, Turkish, Greek, Vietnamese, Thai, Indonesian, Philippine, Indian, Afghan, Pakistani, Chinese and Japanese cuisines.
Just a few nice words from our clients over the years:
“Our guests made numerous complementary remarks about the delicious variety of food, its presentation, the floral arrangements, and the professional demeanor of your service staff.” -National Governor’s Association, VIP reception at the US Botanical Gardens
“It was such a refreshing change to work with an outside caterer instead of hotel services, as we usually do. Our guests and coworkers have not stopped complimenting your creativity and elegance.” -Smith Barney, 350 guests at The National Museum for Women in the Arts
“…a special thank you note for the EXTRA efforts you extended on my behalf…Not only did you create a spectacular Gala at the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum with food, atmosphere, and organization to be rivaled, but when I carelessly left my coat behind you took extra pains to ‘FedEx’ it to me promptly.” -Quinton Instrument Company, 2500 guests at the Air and Space Museum
“I did not think that anything could top the reception you catered for us last year at the Corcoran Gallery … however, you certainly outdid yourselves this year.” -Cardiology Research Foundation, 1500-2800 guests, held at various venues for 4 consecutive years
“The attention given to the detail of the table cloths, place settings, flowers, waiters, food, drink, and an overall beautiful atmosphere is mind boggling for those of us on the planning committee. As usual, the food was great…it was very pleasant working with you and we look forward to doing this again…” -Pan American Medical Association, 250 guests at the Organization of American States Building for 15 consecutive years
Paris Caterers would like to thank all of our clients & vendors for being a part of our success, we hope to continue for another 40 years; creating unforgettable events & making new partnerships throughout the new year.
