This post came to me after doing a search of the internets and coming up empty other than one Time Out article written back in 2007 which had dead links – so it’s time to bring you all up to speed.
After putting a call out on Twitter for suggestions, people said that they didn’t know of any decent restaurants who also offered catering to outside businesses. I also threw out that possibly Deliveroo was filling the gap in the market as they are able to deliver large orders from a huge number of restaurants quickly to clients. I have found that a few restaurants probably would consider doing catering for the right prices well.
