Upscale Cuisine Lives Up To Its Name With Gourmet Catered Options

By Pamela Sosnowski

It can be challenging to find a catering company, particularly for corporate events, that deviates from old standbys such as wrap sandwiches and chips. Upscale Cuisine of Detroit, however, lives up to its name, providing gourmet entree selections that include a hickory grilled lamb chops and chipotle shrimp combo, crab-stuffed salmon, and chicken and broccoli mac and cheese, just to name a few succulent options.

"Our menu is an exclusive fine dining signature entree selection consisting of choice meats, fresh seafood, and organic produce," Chef Al Ra El, who goes by Chef Al, said. "We are metro Detroit's only fine dining delivery service also offering full catering for both corporate and private clients."

The company can cater a meal for as little as three people (its minimum) up to 500. It's become a popular option for Detroit-area businesses that rely on Upscale Cuisine to deliver corporate lunches; there are currently over 25 corporate clients that use the catering company weekly for meal delivery. The company has also created delicious meals and buffet lines for weddings, holiday parties, birthdays, fundraisers, and other events.

Customer testimonials are raving about the catering company, citing that the menu stays away from fried options to deliver fresh, healthy meals that arrive hot and on time. Most of the food is grilled or baked, relying on herbs and seasoning to pack a flavor punch. Whenever possible Chef Al uses organic ingredients from local food sources, and recently added a selection of organic herbal iced teas made with natural sweeteners to the beverage options.

Popular appetizers include the fresh fruit tray, the VIP platter (consisting of steak bites, chipotle shrimp, potatoes, and sautéed broccoli) and the panko-crusted chicken breast, drizzled with a roasted garlic cream sauce. The creamy mac and cheese adorned with lobster tails and shrimp is another customer favorite. Salads, combination plates, and desserts are also on the menu.

Chef Al has over 22 years of hands-on experience working in the restaurant industry, and wanted to bring restaurant-quality food to the catering industry in the Detroit area as well as provide an alternative to take-out. He and his team also thrive on satisfying their clients.

"Upscale Cuisine seeks to provide the highest end of customer service and quality of food to our clients," he said. "We enjoy our craft and we thrive everyday to perfect our business."
