Nick’s Catering offers Italian cuisine for all occasions

Posted: Jul 05, 2022 8:00 AM

After 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 dining.

Now known as Nick’s Catering, the DeGirolamo brothers still serve the same quality, great-tasting food their former business was known for, but now locally at 31 Pecks Lane.

Both were thrilled to have the opportunity to open in Newtown, as both are long-time residents and enjoy being able to feed their neighbors and clientele throughout Fairfield County.

The current address is both the main place where all of the caterer’s meals are made and prepared, as well as where people pick up their orders. Packed lunches are available in individual portions between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m.

People can also meet Nick’s Catering staff and buy individual servings of food to take away when they visit their stand at farmers’ markets in Newtown, Bethel, Monroe and Southbury. Most markets will continue throughout October.

Nick’s Catering offers traditional Italian cuisine freshly prepared daily to please every palate.

The extensive restaurant menu includes everything from delicious classic hot dishes such as eggplant Parmigiana and an extensive range of pasta dishes to platters of American-style sandwiches. Depending on customer tastes and preferences, Nick’s Catering will tailor its menu and service options to meet individual needs.

Catering pickup and delivery can be done regardless of the size of the event, as Nick’s Catering has no maximum and has hosted parties of up to 750 people. Shipping is free on orders of $300 or more.

Nick’s Catering can also provide full-service on-site catering for special events such as high school and college graduations, weddings, bridal or baby showers, rehearsal dinners, business meetings, company parties and picnics.

Even though Nick’s no longer has a formal dining room where people can congregate, Nick’s Catering still delivers the great taste customers fondly remember. No matter the time of year, Nick’s Catering continues to bring family and friends together to enjoy each other’s company while eating the food they know and love.
