We create rustic, yet elegant dishes that celebrate the flavors of the natural ingredients. We make many of our own breads, syrups, pickles, jams, dressings, and sauces. And when we don't, we source from the artisanal producers that we believe are the most talented and ethical of New York.  We consciously step away from our culture's industrialized agriculture, over-processing, and fast food- and instead, work with organic and "slow" ingredients from local farms whenever possible. 

Unlike most other catering companies, Harvest & Revel doesn’t have set menus because we customize every menu that we create, responding to the vision of each client.

Directed by this vision, we draw upon the ingredients and flavors being offered by the current season to design a memorable and delicious culinary experience- with integrity at every point of the process.
