FULL SERVICE CATERING
Jamestown Catering Company
Since October of 2015, our top priority has always been to provide excellent service and high-quality food at an affordable price. Originating from the kitchen of Tonic Seafood & Steaks, we quickly gained a reputation as one of Delaware’s premier caterers by putting thoughtful consideration into every aspect of the planning process. The goal from the start has always been to be the best and that requires genuine passion from within. Each day starts with one question in mind: How can we improve? We take great pride in “all-event” planning and providing world-class experiences that leave a memorable impression.
Menu: Our Event Coordinators will work to accommodate your needs efficiently and effortlessly. By offering a Catering Package that is not designed in the form of tiered packaging nor individually priced items, our clients are given the opportunity to tailor their menus from start to finish while our team works to stay within budget. Sample proposals are available upon request to spark inspiration and showcase all that we have to offer.
Partners: In addition to our high-quality food and professionally experienced staff, we provide a full array of catering services from carefully selected partners. This may include items such as customized centerpieces and flower arrangements, tent rentals, upgraded china, and entertainment. Our list is constantly being updated, expanded, or interchanging to stay up to date. All partners must be approved by The Delaware Art Museum and follow the venue guidelines.
Design: Like the culinary experience of designing your menu, our displays and food/beverage presentation will be designed to complement both the Delaware Art Museum and specific theme of your event. From family gatherings and celebrations to corporate events, we will ensure that your event is a success.
Brandywine Catering provides wonderful food and caring professional service. Brandywine Catering has extensive experience in catering all types of events.

We also do Gluten Free. Vegetarian, or Dairy Free. Final cooking and turn out is done on site to ensure that your food is fresh, hot and delicious.
Our staff is courteous, friendly and knowledgeable. We have a manager at every function to see that everything goes as you requested. Our chefs, bartenders and servers are focused on your guests. Our goal is to make you feel like you are a guest at your own party!
The Delaware Art Museum is an exciting venue for your event. Ted Pace, GM and Karen Lewis, Executive Chef look forward to working with you to create a truly unique event.
About Toscana: Toscana is one of Wilmington’s most creative and popular restaurants. Opening in 1991, Toscana helped define Trolley Square as the city’s nightlife destination.

Toscana has also catered numerous artist openings, corporate functions, fundraisers, and gala events, as well as tour group luncheons and private business meetings at the DAM.
