Root and Stem is the source for approachable, farm-to-table dining with a fresh and modern interpretation. We surpass the ordinary catered meal by combining chef-driven, locally sourced ingredients with seamless and gracious service.


While we have specialties we’re known for and items we love to prepare, we believe that your special event is unique and distinctive. As such, each menu we create reflects your wishes and vision for your event.

I don’t have to worry about anything

You have a wonderful business and a great staff.  You make GREAT food and as an urban farmer myself, I really appreciate your sorely-needed business model of using locally sourced ingredients. You guys make us look really good, clients are always happy with the service you provide and I know when Root & Stem is onsite I don’t have to worry about anything.  It has been a Godsend partnering with you and I know it is not always easy to serve us with my many ever-changing requests.

AMAZING!!!  Food and Crew were absolutely fabulous!!  Party was a HUGE Success!  It for sure kicked off the summer with a bang!!!”



Best Day of Her Life

“Wanted to drop you a note and thank you for everything you and your company did to make her wedding a success. She’s my only daughter. It was important to me for her wedding to be the best day of her life. I think we were successful there.”



Staff Was Exceptional

“I can’t say enough great things about Root and Stem! Let’s start with the food… We wanted a family style meal for our wedding and Craig quickly brainstormed with us options for this approach. We told him food that we liked to eat and he picked a menu that was perfect for us!

Not only did we love the food, but our guests are still talking about the food…weeks later! We too had the short ribs and they were out of this world! Guests wanted more, and Root and Stem provided them with more, because they were soo good!

Craig also catered to my dietary needs, which was awesome in itself! His staff was exceptional as well, even bringing me the “bride signature cocktail” while I was breaking it down on the dance floor.”


Special and Memorable

“Chef Craig and Root and Stem made our wedding day so special and memorable for our guests. They were so flexible and personal, which we really appreciated. Even though as vendors, they are likely juggling many events, Craig at R&S made ours feel special through the process.

The dinner was amazing. Guests don’t always expect much from wedding food, but our guests raved about the dishes. The menu was fresh and interesting, which we really appreciated.

I highly recommend Root and Stem! It was one of the best decisions we made in our wedding planning.”


The Easiest Event

“This was easily the easiest event I’ve ever thrown. I wanted simple and elegant and flexibility on menu and I got exactly that! Deliveries were on time, staff was so helpful with everything that I was able to enjoy the evening. The food was delicious and we heard about it all night from our guests. I recommend highly Root and Stem.”


Their Food Is Fantastic

“From the initial tasting to the day-of we couldn’t have asked for anyone to take care of our big day any better. Not only was their customer service unparalleled, their food is fantastic! Most weddings we attend, we don’t expect the food to be memorable, but Root & Stem’s was. We have received so many compliments on the food from our guests. They also source all of their products from local farmers, which adds to the freshness and sustainability of their food.”


So Happy

“The food was excellent! We were so happy with the fresh and local ingredients used. Our guests kept telling us how amazing everything tasted all night and the next day. The place settings were beautiful, the food looked so perfect. And they did all this about 85 miles from their facility (the wedding was in Luray, VA).

The price matched the service and quality that we received. I highly recommend R&S!”
