We integrate these principles into all aspects of our work, from delicious food and striking design to attentive service to an understanding of trends and value. Founded in 1979 as a waitress service for women in the arts, Great Performances is the leading catering and events company in New York City. We are the exclusive caterer to some of the city’s most prestigious institutions, including The Plaza Hotel, Jazz at Lincoln Center, BAM, Brooklyn Museum, Museum of the City of New York and the Apollo Theater.
One of our cornerstone values is social responsibility. We engage in anti-hunger and food rescue efforts, help cultivate a sustainable food system though our organic Katchkie Farm, and educate children about healthy eating through our work with The Sylvia Center.
