J&L Catering

creates high end custom food with highly personalized service.


J&L Catering has been part of Chicago’s Goose Island neighborhood since 1989. With more than 25 years of catering and a life-long passion for great food and service, owners Ted Grady and Kevin Kelly continue to bring freshness and creativity to Chicago’s catering market.

Catering- giving the customer what they need and what they want. This is an essential and basic statement of who we are. We have lots of menus to choose from, but what do YOU want. What can we do for you? Our goal is to create a custom catering experience for our clients. We have event planners, wait staff and chefs with professional experience that have been with our company for many years and this translates into a group of employees who are ready to provide you with the best event experience.

Beyond catering, J&L supports many parts of the Chicago community. From education, homeless support, recycling, food donations, theater groups and the LGBT community among others, J&L Catering is proud to take part in the experiences of local groups and organizations that help Chicago thrive as a city.
