As I told Elaina following the event, “Our guests continue to comment on the awesomeness of the food. We, of course, knew it would be amazing -- and it was so fun to see everyone enjoy it just as much as we hoped. The only feedback to share is that most people consider wedding food to be mediocre, and instead we (you!) provided something so unique, high-end, and very well executed. And, not-so-secretly, that was my goal... And I love that we made it happen!” We received many food proposals for our wedding at A New Leaf, though only one proposal was worth our attention: Boutique Bites. It was unique, inventive, with ingredients and flavor profiles that we love. We only scheduled one tasting – we knew that if Elaina and her team could execute at the level we expected, she would be our woman. And she did – and then some. The entire Boutique Bites team created an awesome environment for our wedding. We opted for food stations; we wanted a cocktail-style event, one where people drank and ate and celebrated without the fussiness of a sit-down meal (we enjoy those, too – though it wasn’t what we wanted on our wedding day). Her food perfectly complements that vibe. The service staff was awesome. The bartenders were fabulous. And the food! The food! I can still list the 20+ different items we had between passed appetizers, food stations and the dessert bar. We can’t wait to see what Elaina and team do next, and we can’t wait to work with her again.

Elaina from Boutique Bites is as exceptional a caterer as one can find for their wedding or special event. Extremely personable, professional, knowledgeable, and her culinary creations are absolutely outstanding. Her creativity enabled us to come up with a highly customized menu, including a 6 course tasting dinner with wine pairings as well as late night snacks and delicious hors d'oeuvres for cocktail hour.

Andrea, the creative director, was extremely responsive to our requests and menu revisions, and was instrumental in facilitating our extensive list of rentals (I.e. Drinkware, silverware, flatware, chairs, napkins, etc.). We also ended up doing our alcohol packages thru Boutique Bites, which they highly customize for competitive rates.

The service staff on our wedding day was outstanding; they were highly experienced at serving at large events and very professional. Overall, choosing Boutique Bites was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. They should be the only caterer to meet with in Chicago if seeking creative fine dining for your wedding!

Elaina and her team were AMAZING to work with. I could not recommend them more highly. From the very beginning of the process right through to the big day, they went above and beyond to help my husband and I create our dream menu. Elaina put together a highly customized and truly incredible menu based on suggestions from us as well as her own expertise. She completely understood our vision and brought it to life. The tasting at Boutique Bites was hands down my favorite part of the whole wedding planning process. It was clear that Elaina puts her heart and soul into the food - each bite was more delicious than the last. We felt so well taken care of, we knew we would be in good hands. When it came time to decide on a caterer, it wasn't even close: Boutique Bites had the best food, the best service, and the best price. Six months later, on the day of the wedding, everything was exactly as we had planned. We have received countless compliments from guests. Everyone agrees: this was not just the best "wedding food" ever - it was one of the best meals ever. The servers/bartender were very professional, service was efficient, food was incredible... really, flawless from start to finish.

Elaina Vazquez and her Boutique Bites team could not have provided better service, presentation and execution as a catering company than they had for our December 1, 2012 wedding. They played a huge role in making our wedding special, personal, and memorable. From careful attention to detail regarding menu selection to flexibility about event flow, they never missed a beat. Our meetings with Elaina were thoughtful and productive, and she always listened to our ideas or requests before offering guidance. Given her extraordinary knowledge and background as a chef, she is fantastic at helping you decide what's best for a particular crowd and will happily work within your budget without taking short-cuts. From our lobster tacos and Vietnamese meatballs as hors d'oeuvres to the winter risotto and filet mignon as entrees, everything was beyond delectable. We even had a specialty cocktail that had guests asking for the recipe! Andrea Adame was also such a pleasure to work with and was available whenever we needed her, from pre-planning to the actual day of the event. I consider them both to be "working perfectionists"...and this was very reassuring as a bride! The catering team day of was accommodating, respectful, gracious and efficient. They were a complete dream to work with and we couldn't have been more impressed.

Elaina, Andrea and the whole staff of Boutique Bites was great. We've had more compliments than we can count from people who told us that our wedding food was "the best they've ever had." And I have to agree 100%.

Elaina may have changed my perception of filet mignon forever, with her red wine reduction preparation. And we also practically had a line out the door at the cocktail hour for the pasta action station, where they were making gnocchi with pancetta, fava beans and a light cream sauce. I think people were taking a plate and just going to the back of the line, so they could get seconds immediately after they were done eating the app for the first time. Olive oil poached halibut, mini Chicago-style hotdogs, crab cakes, mini lobster tacos, truffled polenta bites, and amazing deserts...the list goes on and on (and on).

Thanks again to everyone that was a part of our big day. We LOVE to eat and this wedding was perfectly suited for us in every way. Elaina and the team have skills and they know it.

Would recommend to everyone who asks.

Best,
Adam

Moments after my husband proposed to me, we began daydreaming of what special features would make our wedding spectacular. Time and again, we named food as one of the most important elements of the celebration. We love good food and have been known to plan entire vacations around a specific ingredient or meal available in one destination. Our search for the perfect caterer was centered around the idea that we wanted a scrumptious, high-end dining experience that transcended "banquet food" and would make our guests feel that they were at an intimate dinner party with dear friends. Elaina and her team impressed us at every turn - whether it was customizing our menu to incorporate specialty menu items or finding the perfect tableware to accent our garden-party-in-urban-warehouse theme, she nailed the entire look, feel and - most important - taste. Our guests continue to comment on what a special wedding reception we had and they frequently name the food as the defining feature.

I wholeheartedly endorse Boutique Bites - Elaina's poise and professionalism, not to mention her sheer talent as a chef, make her THE caterer for anyone who appreciates a delicious meal and expects such quality at their event.

Elaina and Boutique Bites did an incredible job catering my wedding. They were incredibly professional and, most important of all, the food was amazing. Our guests kept asking for Elaina's business cards... everyone was really impressed. Thanks Elaina!

Oh, where to begin....Elaina and her team are absolutely amazing. Elaina is warm, creative and incredibly talented. She is passionate about her work and you (and your event) are treated with amazing attention and care. I planned our wedding from VA and despite the physical distance, I felt entirely comfortable leaving such an important part of our celebration in her hands. I knew I wanted really delicious food with an artistic presentation and that's EXACTLY what I got! We had a sampling of passed hor d'oeurves and a 3 course seated meal that was amazing. Our guests still rave about how fabulous the food tasted and that is always a good sign! Elaina and her team made our reception even more magical than we could have imagined!

I still can't thank her enough for making our memory of that day so incredible!

Boutique Bites made my wedding exactly as I dreamt it. I wanted to have a completely gluten free menu and they made sure it was. Everything tasted amazing. We had so many people compliment it was some of the best food they ever had. Working with Elaina and her team was great. They always responded quickly and were very helpful with ALL the questions I had. I hope to use Boutique Bites in the future, maybe for a baby shower. I completely trusted Elaina and her team with all the details. I appreciate everything they did to make my wedding day so special. I wish I could have their food for dinner every night!

I really enjoyed working with Boutique Bites. Chef Elaina Vazquez and her wonderful staff were very kind, professional, creative and made delicious food for our wedding. She listened to what we wanted and was very flexible with us on options. Most importantly, she provided more than we hoped for we could have for the budget we had available. Of all the caterers we asked for estimates, she was the only one who gave us a menu that was within our budget! We are so happy Boutique Bites was the caterer we went with and our guests are still telling us how great the food was. Thanks Boutique Bites!!
