Urban Gallery VENUE - opens in a new window


July 2017

UrbanSource Catering catered an anniversary party for us in July, 2017. The Hors d’oeuvres were delicious, and so was the Dinner of salmon, vegetables and salad. The service was excellent and the chef and waiter were perfect for our group. The staff laid the tables, served drinks and appetizers, set out the dinner on time, assisted with opening champagne and cutting our Anniversary cake. The best thing for me was that I could enjoy the party myself without worrying about whether our guests were happy.

The Catering Manager, Calvin Hambrook was a pleasure to deal with, keeping me on track and so helpful with suggestions for planning our event. From first contact, he inspired me with confidence and every detail was attended to with imagination and consideration for our guests, our budget and my hopes for the day. I really appreciated all of the planning that went into the event, and the UrbanSource Catering team made it a perfect day.



Dear “Anyone who needs a Caterer, big or small”

If you are reading this, you have just missed a great party. The third great party that Calvin and the folks at UrbanSource Catering have put on in my home.

The great thing, one of many, that UrbanSource can do, is really listening and understanding their clients. Things change and they know when to change with you. The first time I hired UrbanSource, was for my very unconventional wedding, where I did fun things for caterers, such as; getting married and having a huge sit down dinner in my backyard, while refusing to get a tent. I also crammed the bar into my garage alongside the DJ. I didn’t even know until the third event that the group had brought a huge amount of towels that day and had toweled off my entire backyard to ensure that the linens would look their best.

My family is rife with food restrictions and allergies, and UrbanSource rolled with all of that, creating unbelievable tasty, beautiful, and hip food… All in my unfinished basement! The second time we used UrbanSource was for my husband’s parent’s 50th wedding anniversary. The group changed tone and tactics to ensure that the mood of the day was ceremonial and held tons of gravitas. This time we crammed the bar into a room the size of a closet and it was wonderful.

We just hired UrbanSource a third time, for another unconventional event; a huge co-ed baby shower. This time I did not have the budget I wished I did, and UrbanSource worked within it, superior alchemists creating great food, again in my basement, leaving more mingle room for my guests.

Each and every person I have worked with has been respectful, professional and has shown a genuine wish for every guest to have a special time. UrbanSource Catering creates great food and great events… and really that is the big thing. They are fun to work with and have a great approach, pulling off great quality with a fun attitude.

Thanks again to Calvin and everyone at UrbanSource. May you cook in my basement again soon!

... comment on an event our company had on Sept 17, 2013.  We worked with UrbanSource Catering and Kaspara was our event planner. She was an absolute delight to work with. While infusing style and fun, she still managed to make the entire process seamless and seemingly effortless. Jean-Marc was very knowledgeable and outstanding as well.
Our event had a few obstacles thrown our way prior to the event set-up, and Kaspara & Jean Marc managed the challenges like true professionals.

I am so happy that I chose your team to work with, given the creativity and effort that went in, I can honestly say that myself and our guests were blown away.
I wanted to thank you and your team, and will recommend all of you highly.

Thank you for catering our event. When Andy and I started looking at caterers for our wedding, we talked to many companies, but none seemed the right fit. From the moment we started talking to you about our ideas, we clicked. I appreciate your thoughtfulness and your many professional recommendations that guided us to make the right choices…

The food was superb, the best catered food we have ever had… waiters and bartenders were charming, efficient and professional. Having a wedding at home is not easy, but with your expertise, we pulled it off beautifully… and everyone had a great time!
