One way to make certain that your New Year’s Eve Party rocks is to find a good caterer to suit your tastes and the tastes of your guests. While finding a caterer on NYE may be a challenge, there are a few top-quality local restaurants which would be happy to offer professional catering to your event. Consider the following.
6723 Holabird Ave.
Baltimore, MD 21222
One of the finest Italian Restaurants in Baltimore also does catering. There are few foods more universally enjoyed than Italian, and it could really bring a New Year’s celebration together. If you plan to enjoy some of the fine foods from Squire’s, do so for an earlier party, as they stop their catering services after 8:30 p.m. Perfect for families who have kids and will be retiring early. But whether or not the timeline doesn’t suit your party, there will still be a spread of mouth-watering Italian flavor for when the guests do arrive an hour or so later.

Known for bar food and party snacks, Kisling’s Tavern is especially proud of its wings (the website is called “Baltimore’s Best Wings,” after all). But wings aren’t its only game. Kisling’s serves up one heck of a deli platter – including full party subs. It serves up potatoes in every variety you can imagine and a variety of seafood (try the crab balls with cocktail sauce!). For catering, hors d’oeuvres are always a possibility. Entrees range from babyback ribs to lasagna platters, and everything in between. There’s enough variety from Kisling’s to cater to everyone’s taste buds – making this a definite win for a New Year’s party.

Vasachy’s cooks up a very desirable range of comfort foods, perfect for an intimate party with close friends who want to kick their feet up and enjoy one another’s company for New Year’s Eve. Fried chicken, of course, is a comfort food must, as are wings, tenders, fried fish and seafood. But to add in some exotic variety, Vasachy includes in its menu a number of authentic African dishes. Goat stew, cow foot and oxtail are all possibilities.
Although fried chicken is the go-to comfort food for most, Vasachy’s has more variety of chicken dishes than you can imagine without looking at the menu. Needless to say, if you want a caterer that is more versatile than just serving a few friends, Vasachy’s can handle that, too.

In case the name doesn’t give it away, Harbor Que serves BBQ. South Carolina BBQ, to be specific. So if you want New Year’s Eve to feel like Game Day, consider getting a caterer who will deliver the goods with ribs, pulled pork, pit beef, BBQ’d chicken and pit ham or turkey – all marinated in a signature South Carolina BBQ blend. For finger food, consider a massive platter of mouth-watering wings.
Once you and your guests have gotten your BBQ fix, watch the ball drop with one of a dozen different southern-style deserts, including pound cake or one of four different kinds of cobbler.

Consider some more exotic fare for your New Year’s party, and bring in some yummy Thai food. Most caterers serve American food, but Thai Yum takes the path less traveled, and will gladly stock your table with such delicacies as its signature Thai soups, spring rolls, dumplings, calamari or curry. Accustomed to catering professional events, Yum pulls out all the stops when it comes to hosting a party, and this might be a thought for bigger parties, because it handles all of the setup and implementation.
With Thai Yum you may be certain you are getting the authentic Thai experience. It is owned and operated by a husband and wife team. He is from Bangkok, and she is from further south in Thailand. Make your party sizzle like one of Yum’s platters, and bring Thai Yum in for a unique party experience.
