Avanti Gourmet5 star(s)

 I have used Avanti for catering events & try to eat there on my own as much as I can. The atmosphere is cozy, the service is great, and the food is absolutely delicious! The proprietor, Charlie, knows his stuff. He's a dream to work with--give him a budget and ideas, and he'll work very hard to make it happen. I'm very picky about my food--and the quality of food for my catered events. I never have to worry about anything with Charlie in charge. Presentation and set-up always runs great, and he even took the time to "train" my team of student helpers on how to properly serve the food, about portion control, etc. It just doesn't get better than Charlie! And by the way, he makes some damn good sweet tea, to be from New York!
