  • Recently Launched, Full-Service AN Catering Garners Buzz As the Ultimate in Exquisite, Unique Event Catering.

    Catherine An, the Youngest Daughter of Crustacean's Executive Celebrity Chef, Helene An, Launches Fresh, New Business Venture

    Beverly Hills, CA (October 2008)

    AN Catering, a division of House of An and Crustacean Restaurants, continues to gain a loyal following as the premier luxury catering company for those looking for impeccable service, sumptuous cuisine, and a flawless execution. Headed by Catherine An, the youngest of the An sisters, AN Catering is a full-service catering enterprise that provides floral arrangements, tenting, tableware, and wait staff, in addition to a level of quality and extravagance that is unparalleled. The freshest, latest concept for House of An, Catherine An is both excited and confident in regards to this new venture, saying, "Our family has been blessed with great success in the restaurant business, and I am thrilled to take House of AN to the next level." Based upon her mother's core philosophy of flavorful taste and healthy ingredients, Catherine brings a youthful energy and dedication to the top-notch service that AN Catering both promises, and delivers.

    As one of the newest catering companies in the Los Angeles area, AN Catering has quickly secured a loyal following of top-notch clients and has been lauded with accolades and awards for their excellence. AN Catering was recently honored by The Los Angeles Times as "the caterer to the stars," and received one of catering's highest honors, BizBash Magazine's "Best Overall Catering at an Event," for their work at Sea Shepherd's Charity Benefit chaired by Mick Jagger and Pierce Brosnan, for their three-course vegan meal for 450 guests. Only AN Catering can say that they are one of the few caterers that offer guests a full-service vegetarian menu. Having catered events for clients such as Saks Fifth Avenue, Cusp (a division of Neiman Marcus), Tiffany's, Neil Lane Jewelry, and Kitson, a fashionable edge and an eye for detail is key. From a socialite's elaborate birthday to an entertainment industry post-party, a healthy spa bridal shower to a movie premiere, AN Catering guarantees no event is too large or small for their fresh touch of elegance.

    In addition to their delectable cuisine and world-class service, AN Catering also specializes in crafting imaginative event themes with help from their in-house stylist, sommelier, and mixologist. For example, AN Catering executed a Cuban Fantasy themed celebration for the Andre Sobel River of Life Foundation, featuring traditional Cuban menu items such as crab plantains and spicy filet of beef. In addition to their trademark Euro-Vietnamese fusion cuisine (such as Seared Ahi Cucumber Rolls with Tobiko Caviar, and their Secret Kitchen™ Garlic Noodles), AN Catering prides themselves in their ability to perfectly tailor their delicacies to each client's particular tastes. You want traditional Mexican? You got it. Furthermore, Sommelier Chris Bradford is available to expertly pair the perfect wine for every dish, and mixologist Mark Rocha can concoct an original cocktail inspired by a client's soiree. Overall, AN Catering knows that the magic is in the details, and strive for a level of luxury and distinction that is simply unprecedented.
