At Tim Hopkins Catering, we love parties: day or night, grand or intimate, lavish or simple. Parties give everyone an excuse to have fun, enjoy amazing food, and laugh with friends - the very things that we think matter most in life.

Special Events

For us, nothing is more fun than getting creative with menus, ideas, and locations. Imagine grilled lobsters and freshly blended daiquiris on the beach at sunset. An elegant autumn birthday dinner of filet mignon and truffled mashed potatoes. A dazzling bar/batmitzvah at the Crane Estate. Cocktails on the veranda in June. A winter extravaganza with ice sculptures, hot chocolate, and pork slow-roasting over a bonfire. The sky, quite literally, is the limit.

Our chefs combine the freshest, local ingredients to create magnificent dishes from the four corners of the world. Our surprising, mouth-watering creations will delight even the most discriminating palates. Our clients consistently praise us both for the sophistication and the simplicity of our food. We view this as the highest compliment.

When Tim Hopkins Catering handles your party, everything will be taken care of to perfection. You can relax and spend time with your guests, knowing that the entire afternoon or evening is yours. And the next morning when your phone starts to ring, we bet they'll be saying "That was the best party ever"
