local harvest catering


bittergreen is a Queens and Ulster County based catering and event services company that places an emphasis on sourcing the freshest ingredients the region has to offer in any season. Our menus are varied, but our palate is rooted in the hearty cuisines of New England and the Canadian Maritimes.

We value simplicity, and feel that when you read a menu, you should come away with a pretty good idea of what is in the food. We minimize the use of imported seasonings and let the richness of what the soil and seas provide shine through on its own. We generally use animal proteins in moderation, and we offer substantial vegetarian and vegan options upon request.

Philosophy


Local sourcing. Simplicity. Ethics.

We believe the most distinctive flavors come from the freshest ingredients, and the best way to get those is to buy them from the people who grow or catch them.

We strive to be ecologically mindful in everything we do, and we're always looking for ways to improve our habits to increase efficiency and lower our impact. We are vigilant recyclers. We compost all suitable kitchen scraps, and when we have to use disposables, we make sure those are compostable too.

We value transparency, so if there is any aspect of our business you would like to know more about, please let us know.
