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
