With chefs hailing from some of the best spots in the City, 415 Catering is bringing restaurant quality food straight to offices around the Bay Area. We focus on providing affordable, recurring lunch service with a wide variety of menus inspired by the best of what’s available.
415 Catering’s Menus reflect the varied talent of our amazing staff: global, street-food inspired, classic American & European comforts and new takes on familiar flavors. We source our produce from a network of over 80 local farms and always use hormone- and antibiotic free protein. We aim to bridge the gap between your hungriest meat-and-potatoes eaters and those with very particular palettes. Each menu takes into account a full range of dietary needs, including vegan, gluten-free, Paleo, dairy-free etc.
Each service brings a dedicated 415 Crew member to your office, who will outfit the buffet with crisp, black linens and floral decor and serve a new, delicious meal each day.
The 415 Crew is friendly, educated about the food they are serving and are there to help you out! Our Crew members will stay throughout service, ready to answer any questions and will always leave your space cleaner than they found it. Though our service is top tier, we are also budget conscious and offer extremely competitive pricing!

A Northern Californian native, Courtney graduated in 2002 from the California Culinary of Arts and quickly embarked on a career in fine dining.
