Nick’s Catering: Supplying Italian Cuisine For All Occasions

Published: October 6, 2017

After nearly 30 years of operating as Nick’s Restaurant on Starr Street in Danbury, owners Frank and Victor DeGirolamo decided it was time to transform their business and focus on their specialty, buffet catering.

Now known as Nick’s Catering, the DeGirolamo brothers still serve up the same quality, great-tasting food their business is known for, but now from Tier 1 at 31 Pecks Lane.

The two were pleased to have the opportunity to open in Newtown, as both are longtime residents, and enjoy getting to feed their neighbors and clientele all throughout Fairfield County.

Their current address is both the main location for making and preparing all the catered meals, as well as where people pick up their orders. Takeout lunches are available in single servings between 7 am and 2 pm.

Nick’s Catering offers traditional Italian cuisine that is prepared fresh every day.

The full catering menu includes everything from delicious hot food classics like eggplant Parmigiana and a huge range of pasta dishes to American-style sandwich platters. However, depending on the tastes and preferences of the clientele, Nick’s Catering will tailor the menu and service options to meet individual’s needs.

Pickup and delivery catering can be done regardless of the size of the event, as Nick’s Catering has no maximum and has catered parties as large as 750 people.

Nick’s Catering can also do full-service, onsite catering for special events like weddings, showers, rehearsal dinners, business meetings, company parties, picnics, and clam bakes.

Even through the restaurant no longer has its official dining area in which people can gather, Nick’s Catering still brings family and friends together to enjoy each other’s company while dining on the food they know and love.

Sample of the Menu:

Hors D’oeuvres: Nick’s Catering offers a variety of appetizer options including tasty bruschetta bread, mini Italian meatballs, and fried calamari.

Pasta: One of the most frequently requested pasta dishes is the baked ziti. It is made with fresh mozzarella and ricotta cheese and the restaurant’s famous tomato sauce.

Chicken: There are more than half a dozen chicken entrees available for catering. The chicken campagna consists of tender pieces of breaded chicken and fresh sautéed red peppers in a garlic sauce.

Seafood: A best-selling seafood selection at Nick’s Catering is the seafood imperial. It is a combination of clams, scallops, shrimp, sole, swordfish, calamari, and scungilli, prepared in a light pink sauce over linguini.

Nick’s Specialties: Nick’s Catering is known for its many signature dishes that they have kept by popular demand, including the eggplant Parmigiana made with rolled eggplant stuffed with mozzarella cheese, prepared in a marinara sauce.

Vegetables: Among the different vegetable options, there are fresh string beans, broccoli Parmigiana, and grilled vegetables.

Salads: There are seven choices of salads listed on the catering menu, including the traditional Italian antipasto, potato salad, and Caesar salad.

Desserts: Nick’s Catering has fresh cookies and brownies available for dessert, as well as 12-inch cheesecake, 12-inch chocolate mousse cake, cannoli, and tiramisu.

Sauces: Each type of sauce is made on site, and sold by the quart. Choose from marinara, broccoli, meat, primavera, and tomato sauce.

Nick’s Catering has a complete dinnerware service supplying heavy-duty utensils, dinner napkins, plates, cold drinking glasses, and coffee cups at a cost of $1 per person. There is free delivery for orders of $300 or more.
