Great Performances’ catering menus are a plant-forward celebration of contemporary American cuisine, maintaining a strong emphasis on seasonality and the sustainable sourcing of ingredients.

Throughout the menu development process, our chefs involve staff and clients in conversations about flavors, ingredients, food quality, seasonality, food waste and rescue, and sourcing transparency.

Delicious food starts at the source and we have developed close relationships with local farms to ensure we start with the highest quality ingredients. We have profound respect for food, constantly innovating to ensure full utilization, from root to frond, of our ingredients.

Whether a dish is traditional or out of the box, it has the Great Performances touch that makes it exquisite. We incorporate ingredients from ancient worlds and the legendary spice trail, reflecting the brilliance of the melting pot that defines New York.
