Sterling Affair is a full service, off premise catering company.  We specialize in events ranging from intimate gatherings to large black tie galas, and all the celebrations in between!  We work throughout the NY metropolitan area, and are able to transform any space (raw to polished; grassy knolls to penthouse suites) into your dream event.

Passionately Cooking for over 30 years

Sterling Affair was born out of a love for cooking and a passion to impress. Our story begins with a French restaurant chef who could cook like no one‘s business and a hospitality trained young man who learned his craft at the Waldorf Astoria.  It was the 80s, a time of New York late night parties and long days of cooking. The foundation of our company was built on classic culinary dishes, exceptional service and the perfection of the art of the plate. We have excelled in business for over 33 years due to our continued passion, which is carried on through our staff, our unprecedented cuisine and our attention to our clients wishes. You can taste the Sterling Affair difference in every event we perfect and every dish we create.

Move Forward, Give Back

Sterling Affair is proud to support our local communities. From student mentoring institutions to community outreach with such programs as The Center for Food Action, Pony Power Therapies and The Viscardi Center (to name a few), we make it part of our company mission to give back to those in need of assistance.
