A Note from the “MOB” Margie Doran

Hi Chris,

Just got home and am totally exhausted but I could not go to bed without thanking you and all your staff for an absolutely beautiful day. I heard nothing except rave reviews from everyone. The staff, the captains, and the chefs were just the nicest people. I knew it was going to be wonderful but I just wanted to thank you for all that you do and how you make everything seem so effortless.

Bravo!

Margie

Carriage House Events & Caterers are experts in planning and executing your tented event. We start at the beginning, working with you to discover the vision you have for the event then move on through the planning and rental process. I personally meet you at the rental company and go through every detail with you, explaining what will and will not work in the site you have chosen.

Hello,

I am contacting you because my fiancée Rebecca and I are considering hiring Chris Angione at Carriage House Caterers to cater our wedding at Tarrywile Mansion and Park in Danbury next summer. Chris gave me your email address, and urged me to contact you as a reference.

In any case to make this as easy as possible, would it be possible for you to answer these questions? Sorry in advance for taking up your time!

Best,

Nol Honig

Nol,

I am happy to give you a reference on Chris and Carriage House.

I am the retired President of UBS Capital (the private equity business of UBS in the Americas) and because of my job I have had to cater affairs at my home and at venues fairly often. I have therefore used many caterers over the last 25 years and can honestly say that Chris Angione and his staff at Carriage House are consistently outstanding and are the best in the area. (On your rating scale a (10 Out of 1). If they are within your budget, I strongly recommend that you hire them.

Below are the responses to your questions.

  1. On a scale of 1-10, how would you rate the quality of food and the staff?

  Quality of food and staff are a 10. Food is delicious and beautifully presented. Staff is professional, hard-working and friendly.

2. Were there any difficulties dealing with Chris, or anyone at CHC, throughout the process?

      No difficulties at all.

3. How accurate is Chris in Terms of estimating cost?

     Our bill was exactly his estimate. He even added a few minor extras at no charge.

4. If you (or your spouse) are a vegetarian, how satisfied were you with vegetarian entrees and appetizers?

    We had a few teenage vegetarians at our most recent affair with Chris and they enjoyed the pastas, salads and vegetable platters.

An important criterion in choosing the caterer is whether or not the caterer manages the who affair (especially the planning and ordering of tents, flowers, liquor, rentals, etc) or does the caterer just prepare and supply food and staff. Chris managed the entire event and sweats the details so that my wife and I can just show up and enjoy ourselves and not worry about anything.

Lastly, I would say that in the Danbury/Litchfield county area there is no catering company that is the equal of Carriage House. The quality of their product is on par with top shelf caterers in Manhattan (although more reasonably priced).

If you have any other questions please feel free to contact me.

Enjoy your wedding,

All the Best,

Chip Delaney

I’ve used Carriage House Catering twice and both times it was the best experience I’ve ever had. The project management was by far unbelievable, while most caterers are concerned about themselves; Chris was orchestrating the entire event. He kept everyone on target, managed every task down to the color of the tablecloth and then some, unbelievable. What I loved most is how he gave me options for things I would have never thought of, making both my events spectacular. I have never met anyone with such passion for their field and would recommend Carriage House Catering 500%.

  1. On a scale of 1-10, how would you rate the quality of food, and the staff?

I would rate Carriage House Catering a 10+

2. Were there any difficulties dealing with Chris, or anyone at CHC, throughout the process?

None at all, Chris took a very stressful day and made it stress free.

3. How accurate is Chris in terms of estimating cost?

Very accurate, Chris was upfront with all costs, hitting all estimates he gave.

4. If you (or your spouse) are a vegetarian, how satisfied were you with vegetarian entrees and appetizers?

I’m not a vegetarian so I can’t speak about something like that, but at a recent event I had, my sister’s daughter has sever peanut allergies and Chris took extra care not to infuse peanuts in the menu, which he was successful. Very Impressive.

5. If there are any other things you would like to share with us, please feel free. We really appreciate the help.

I got other quotes from other caterers and they all profess to do a great job but when you really look at Chris’s references, his past clientele, you won’t find another caterer that will handle an event with such professionalism. If I had to say one thing to share with you would be this. You only get one chance to have your day; you can’t take it back, You Won’t Be Disappointed With Chris and his Staff. His tag line says it all, “When it has to be PERFECT”, Call Carriage House Catering, it really is true.

Good Luck,
