New Year’s Eve Catering

If there’s a holiday designed for the festive celebrations Chicago is known for, it’s New Year’s Eve. Traditionally, the holiday kicks off with an elegant or exciting meal, followed by an evening of fun – perhaps drinks, dancing, or even just time spent with friends, coworkers, or family. Finally, the traditional countdown commences, culminating in the champagne toast as well wishes and festive greetings abound.

No matter the size, venue, or guest list of the associated party, New Year’s Eve is a holiday that uniquely focuses on high-quality, elegant food and drink. For that reason, when you’re planning a New Year’s Eve function, it’s especially important to ensure you offer a menu you can be proud of.

Fortunately, providing delicious, festive food for gatherings of all sizes is Corky’s specialty.
