From Ira, regarding a university department reception catered by Chef Tony:

"The Cuban Braised Beef on Polenta Medallions was a hit and people really loved the little spanakopitas. Chef Tony showed attentive care in planning, setting up, and cleaning up, ensuring a selection of items that was smart and appropriate to the event, and beautiful displays, attractive presentations!"

From Laura, who hired Chef Tony to cater a neighborhood get-together:

"The food you brought over was fabulous; the tamarind chicken skewers and crab cakes were huge hits and we all felt as if we had a special feast. We felt so happy to have your food in our home. Thank you for making it so easy and perfect."
