J&L Catering was founded in Chicago’s River North neighborhood in 1989. With more than 20 years of food service experience and a life-long passion for great food, owners Ted Grady and Kevin Kelly continue to bring freshness and creativity to Chicago’s catering market.
We have become known for our original and exciting cuisine and for the ability to work in a variety of settings where both precision and flexibility are essential to meet a client’s changing needs. J&L has experienced robust growth and is a financially sound company. J&L is owner-operated and has more than 40 managers, chefs, and event designers, and on-premise service personnel for the corporate accounts we manage. Our service staff for all private events is personally recruited and trained by J&L management. These individuals, many of whom have been associated with J&L for more than five years, currently number more than 60, including captains, waiters, bartenders and chefs.
Our professional staff is personable and stylish, providing experienced and efficient service to our clients. Typically, J&L will provide a full range of services for your event, including event management, tabletop design, a professionally trained staff, a complete bar package, entertainment, decor and floral arrangements.
