Here at Eat & Smile, we consider it an honor to be part of your special day. As DC’s first locally-sourced caterer, we bring the bounty of area farms to your wedding table. Whether you want a formal plated dinner, a relaxed seasonal buffet, an intimate family style dinner, or want to buck tradition all together and have just a rocking party, we can provide a locally sourced menu that is both delicious and beautiful. We’re experienced in working around dietary restrictions, preferences, and budgetary concerns. There is a lot of creativity in food, and we enjoy working one-on-one with our clients to find the right balance for their event!

As with our catering services, we offer economical in-house coordinating services via our wonderful partner Jasmine Smith & Co. Jasmine and her team are simply the best in the industry - smart, talented, motivated, experienced, dedicated, and they maintain a great sense of humor along with their can-do attitude! We love working together so much that they offer a generous discount to E&S clients, much below their usual rates (which, on their own, are still quite competitive in the area market). 



Parties & Social Events

Cocktail Parties

We approach every cocktail party as an opportunity to present our dishes distilled into a one or two bite format. Many of our favorite dishes are appetizers or small bites, and nearly all of our events feature hors d’oeuvres or small plates in their menu. We’ll work with to not only create a menu suitable to you and your guests, but also one that will be filling and convenient for mingling.


Private Dinners

Dinner Parties are what our company was founded on. We come to your home and create an intimate restaurant-like meal, working with you beforehand to configure a menu to your liking, and presenting you with an unforgettable experience. This service is ideal for those looking to host guests in such a way that actually leaves time for visiting with them! We take on the responsibilities of cooking and cleaning, leaving you to enjoy the company of friends and family, and, at the end of the night, find your kitchen cleaner than when we arrived.


Holiday Parties, Baby and Wedding Showers, Bar and Bat Mitzvah, and more

We cater it all, events large and small. If you’re wondering whether we can cater your event, simply complete our Contact Us form with the details of your gathering. We’ll get back to you promptly!
