Ta dah! Introducing the launch of New World Catering by Ric Orlando, located at 250 Delaware Avenue in Albany, just down the street from New World Bistro Bar which resides at 300 Delaware.
Orlando and Liz Corrado, his wife and partner, have joined forces with David Jackson, catering designer and front-of-the-house director, and Gabe Pollow, former New World Bistro Bar chef. They plan to offer catering services as far north as Lake Placid, as far west as Cooperstown, and as far east as the Berkshires.
“With this location right at the crossroads of 787, I-87, I-90 and I-88 and access to an incredible pallete of classic and non-traditional venues, we bring our customers a mass expansion of possibilities for creating their perfect event,” Corrado said.
“Albany has treated me better than anywhere,” added Orlando. “Albany embraced me when I cooked at Justin’s" -- on Albany's Lark Street -- "in the '90s. With the success of the Bistro Bar, it’s clear to me that this is my home market
“We’ve got our arms around Woodstock, our fingers stretched to Brooklyn and Boston, and our toes buried in the Capital Region. And, we offer our own unique blend of global local classic modern. Vintage is cool when you give it a little edge. And we can do it anywhere from boardrooms to penthouses, beaches to apple orchards and white tents to Dutch barns.”
As is Orlando's usual method of operation, the new catering service will stress the use of sustainable regional agriculture and local foragers, and showcase seasonal highlights of the region.
Details about the catering service are available by calling Holly at 518-331-4814. To book a consultation for a catered event, contact Jackson at 844-275-6680.
