In 1996 David Simms formed Eatible Delights Catering. While building Eatible Delights, David worked for The Olive Garden, Restaurant Associates and La Terrase restaurant, where he received formal training under Chef David Greer. He attended and graduated from OIC Philadelphia where he received hospitality and culinary training. Additionally he formed David’s Place Restaurant, secured the backstage catering for the Robin Hood Dell East and provided catering at its concession stand; he also operated a concession stand at Citizens Bank Ball Park. After he formed Eatible Delights Catering, he was selected to participate in the 1996 All Star game which was his first large scale (750 people) catering and event coordinating project where he worked with Aretha Franklin. Eatible Delights Catering is located at 2338 Ridge Avenue in Philadelphia and currently provides catering for close to 300 events a year.
Eatible Delights is a pleasure to work with. The food was amazing and the service outstanding. I would highly recommend.
This full service catering company is excellent! I work for a university and was asked to put on an all-day party for 600 people from 10:00am-8:00pm and was given 3-days notice. Eatible Delights Catering not only pulled off a great event, they are also wonderful and easy to work with, never said no to any of my requests (no matter how huge), offered excellent service to my guests, made the event look good and flow well, offered high quality food and rentals, and made me look like a hero to my boss. The owner David is very nice and definitely knows how to put on a great party with delicious food. Catina who works there is a delight to deal with. This company is responsive, honest, offer great quality, and an excellent guest experience. I would highly recommend them for any size event.
MY FAVORITE CATERER! EXCELLENT FOOD & STAFF!
David and Eatible Delights never disappoints! We know David from our time in Philadelphia and recently relocated to the DC area. We hired Eatible Delights to cater my husband‘s 50th birthday celebration after learning (to my pleasant surprise) that they serve clients in DC as well. Our guests were mesmerized by the mouth-watering cuisine, most notably the lamb chops, salmon and made-to-order pasta. David made the entire process so easy, from guiding our menu selections, keeping us appraised of every detail leading up to the event, and operating with an "anything is possible" mindset. Eatible Delights was the perfect complement to a perfect evening!
