FR Review:
What originally began over twenty years ago as a singular man (Stephen Kennard) cooking and entertaining for friends in his small New York City apartment has since grown to become one of the city's premier catering companies. Canard, Inc. is a "creative and gracious" resource for wonderful events, delivering personalized and attentive service to multinational corporations, museums and private clients alike. While large enough to cater events for over a thousand people, Canard remains boutique in its focus on the client, sitting down as often as it takes to "get it right." Clients find that they do, indeed, get it it right: "Canard was able to take our visions and translate it into food." Given its high-end clientele, the end result is typically "modern New York elegance" without being overtly "challenging" to the sensible palate.

Recent menus have included dishes such as lobster fricassee, preserved lemon marinated breast of duck and pomegranate molasses glazed white eggplant. Recent events include the Battery Conservancy Annual Gala, the amfAR Inspiration Gala at the New York Public Library and numerous parties at the American Folk Art Museum (where Canard is the exclusive caterer). Prices are reasonable for the quality of food and service: a seated dinner, including staff and alcohol, starts at about $200 per person. In May of 2010, Canard took over the client list and employees of its peer Taste Caterers, which had a strong following in the art and fashion worlds.

Representative Client Comments:
"There are more caterers in New York City than cab drivers, but there is only one I would ever hire again, and again, and again--Canard, Inc." "When Canard started to cater our events, their standards for excellence raised the bar of our own expectations." "The food is consistently delicious, never boring." "The food is divine and the presentation is spectacular." "Canard's service is the stuff that gives New York City the international reputation of sophistication and class." "They are the ultimate problem-solvers, caretakers and professionals." "The staff is a pleasure to work with."
