Wondering why our owners Tim and Steve have been Traveling to Tennessee so much lately?
Well, here’s why-
They have designed and created a (24 foot long- 18 foot high) catering trailer to accommodate any catering need. It is a state of the art catering facility on wheels- a replica of the official Red Osier Landmark Restaurant’s kitchen. It will allow for catering needs large or small, from weddings to local festivals, serve food from Prime Rib sandwiches to surf and turf dinners, and allow our restaurant to be portable throughout the Western New York Region.
Not only will our restaurant become portable, our highly trained chefs will also become portable, running restaurant operations and the portable catering operations. (They are extremely excited about this new venture.)
This is the only catering trailer of it’s kind throughout the country.
A year in review, from Executive Chef William Burch
To describe 2018 in just a few sentences is far from an easy task for me. After taking over the kitchen operations in January, we were faced with making some difficult decisions as to which direction to take with my staff and how to improve. We promoted Sam Malone to Sous Chef which was a crucial move to our team. Shortly after bringing Sam on to our management team, we brought in Chef Mike Mattern to be our beef specialist which rounded the rest of our team out which also include Chef Jim Colantonio, Clifton Williams, and Chef Nicole Granata. These are some of the hardest working people I have worked with in my career. We wouldn’t have been able to accomplish all we sought out to in 2018 without the help and dedication from each person on this team.
In 2018, we catered over 100 events with our state-of-the-art trailer. We were pleased to be asked to cater for VIP groups including Kid Rock and Dierks Bentley while being a part of the 2018 Darien Lake concert series. The year prior we had only done 35 catering events, under the team’s direction in 2018, we more than tripled the previous years total.
In 2019, we are looking forward to featuring some more high-end items and some items that you wouldn’t typically see in any other restaurant within the area. We are looking to expand the offerings in our catering department with our owners planning to yet, make another trip to Tennessee where their initial vision and first catering trailer was born. There is also a trip in the works for The Red Osier Landmark to make a trip to Washington D.C. and let our food and service speak for itself on Capital Hill and show what makes our restaurant The Premier Dining Destination of Western New York.
For any restaurant the key to success is team work.It has been a pleasure watching this team come together from the minute you, the guest, walk into our doors until the last person walks out, even till after hours and clean up. Our staff is there for each other, a so called family, they all help out when any of their co-workers are in need which is very refreshing to see.
None of these things would have been made possible if it wasn’t for the support of our community and our customers. You are the driving force for making all these things we sought to accomplish this year possible, and possible for years to come. From myself, and all of us here at The Red Osier Landmark Restaurant, we thank you for all that you do to make us successful and we will certainly do our best to ensure you get the best from us in return. Thank you for your valued patronage.
Wishing you all a Happy 2019!
Chef Will Burch
We were very honored and happy to be afforded the opportunity to feature our food trailer on Capital Hill. The food truck was seen throughout the Washington D.C. area along with thousands of others in Hershey, Pennsylvania. The locals were able to taste our famous Western New York food fare. Owners Steve and Tim, along with good friend Dan Clor, (founder of The American Warrior Festival) and the youngest Chef on our team,Clifton Williams toured the many sites that make our nations capital great. The most humbling of all was Arlington National Cemetery, seeing the changing of the guard at The Tomb of The Unknown Soldier while being in awe of all the men and women who have served our nation. Many thanks to The American Legion Post 8, Washington D.C. for their great hospitality during our stay. We are looking forward to more trips to the area while continuing to showcase our food trailer beyond New York. We have shared a few photos for our guests to enjoy from our trip.
Ohhh…..and look who popped in, Spokespet Charlie reminding everyone The Genesee County Animal Shelter is in desperate need of wet dog food! Charlie made a stop in yesterday but is asking all his restaurant fans for some help as well. If you can not make it there, we would be happy to have you drop it off here at the restaurant and we can forward the donation to them.
