We had nervous guests who were at other weddings this month where the catering teams took little to no precautions, and we received constant praise about the efforts you made. Not only that but the food and drinks were FANTASTIC!
Jessica Bride Scottish Rite Cathedral October 5, 2020
The event was originally planned for April, but the Covid-19 pandemic forced us to move the party back to May. Kahn’s came up with a new plan that allowed us to stay safe and socially distant. The Kahn’s team wore masks and gloves and served the guests in the safest possible way, while still having an amazing meal and incredible service. They were very professional about the entire evening; the food was delicious and the service was amazing.
