"Best Upscale Caterer" "J&L has been quietly amazing clients over the years with their ability to constantly reinvent themselves and make it seem effortless. Fancy but fun-and discreet. The latter being an important element when you are catering a lot of private, behind-the-scenes dinner parties that Chicago Social is not invited to cover. Another small secret: limit the number of clients so that the much craved personal touch is really a personal touch." "Best of Issue" New City, 1999
"My husband and I loved working with J&L for our wedding! The food was delectable. We always had complete confidence in the staff. They replaced any need we might have had for a wedding coordinator as they gave us excellent vendor recommendations, and on the day of the event managed everything beautifully beyond the scope of their 'catering job'. We would love to have another event just to get to work with J&L again." Anne & Gary
