The skill set needed for an off-premise caterer like Distinctive Catering of Albany & Saratoga compared to restaurants who provide catering is tremendous. Distinctive Catering is 100% focussed on the task at hand by providing our Albany, Saratoga Springs & the upper New York area customers full service catering. A restaurant providing these same services is normally not as well trained or versed to provide the highest quality off-premise catering. Hey, we do it every time, not just part time!



At its most basic level, catering is all about food. No matter how beautifully the venue is decorated or how carefully the place settings are arranged, clients won't book us again if the food is awful. We have enough cooking experience to make recipe substitutions, plan menus, and safely prepare, reheat and transport large amounts of food.

Food Safety

We are aware of and comply with the most-up-to-date food safety laws in the state of New York. The Food and Drug Administration is in charge of food safety regulations throughout the nation, and allows you to find your state agency.

Customer Service

We are happy to work with clients to design a custom menu. We understand that a satisfied customer is the best recommendation, and word-of-mouth remains some of our most effective advertising out there.

Flexibility & Creativity

Recipes may need to be adjusted to cope with food allergies, and cooking methods may have to be altered to conform to religious dietary requirements or personal preferences. We are here to help you and your guests with these issues.


Our leadership team and Chefs manage a staff of cooks, servers, cleaners, and dishwashers, while ensuring their team is aware of their schedules, place settings, serving customs, and food safety regulations.
