BEDMiNSTER, NJ - Michael Ramella of Devour Creative Catering in Berkeley Heights recently joined Delicious Heights and their DH Fine Catering team.
"Delicious Heights has a well established culture and I’m excited to join that culture and bring my talents to the table," said Ramella.
DH Fine Catering provides full service catering including food and wedding planning services, staffing, rentals and tenting to create a custom tailored event. They offer a vast array of catering packages that are made to fit a wide range of budgets.
Ralph Aquaviva, co-owner of the Delicious Heights group of restaurants and catering facilities, approached Ramella to manage their off-premises catering operation because of his expertise and reputation in wedding planning. "Everybody loves Michael -- he knows what he is talking about -- he knows his facts," said Aquaviva. "He is a master of artistry and elegance -- he's creative and has a lot of talents."
Ramella began his restaurant career in the "front of the house" and followed his dream to open his own catering business in 2018."I opened the business from a combination of opportunity and ability," said Ramella. "I love working with people, planning and executing events, and seeing the result."
"The thing that is lacking in off-premises catering is the hospitality factor -- many off-premises caterers will treat you like an in-and-out situation and won’t make a connection with the client. That’s something that is extremely important to me -- that is the reason why all of my couples love working with me," said Ramella.
Ramella had opened Devour at the same time Delicious Heights took over Bridgewater Manor and their off-premises catering operation. "I thought it would be a great relationship to merge," said Aquaviva. "Mike’s the real deal and Delicious Heights is the real deal. Together we are a power house."
