A boutique catering and events company.
Brix Catering & Events is a dynamic husband and wife team combining the skills of a classically trained chef and sommelier with event planning expertise to ensure your next event is spectacular from start to finish. Hire Brix for traditional catering, an elegantly-coursed meal, wine pairings, chef demonstrations, or full scale event coordination.
Zachary Greatting, CHEF AND Sommelier
Zachary Greatting started Brix Catering & Events in 2012 as a passion project, to bring food and wine pairing to people’s homes. After completing culinary school at Kendall College, and the Wine Intensive at the Culinary Institute of America Greystone, Zachary worked as Assistant Sommelier at the two Michelin starred restaurant Ria. It was during this time that the original idea for Brix came to fruition. After Ria closed, Zach took a position in wine sales, which allowed him the time on nights and weekends to start catering. One wine dinner led to another, and referrals grew the business from a hobby to the full service catering and events company that Brix is today.

Drop off/Corporate Catering
Brix is a catering specialist. Years in the restaurant industry allow us to bring the experience of a great Chicago restaurant to your boardroom. We're not your local restaurant trying to make our menu items work for catering. We are chefs trying to take the fresh delicious food that we put on our own dinning room tables and bring that to your office. Not only do we make it fresh and delicious but we have taken time to make sure our food travels to you safe and secure. We don't send you a delivery drive like the other Chicago caterers. We will send a chef who made your food, knows how to keep it safe and will be able to handle any questions you have upon their arrival.
