After spending nearly two decades pleasing peoples’ palates with exquisitely crafted food at catered events, Andrew Michaels, owner of RH241 Catering & Events, is excited to announce his expansion with a brand-new venue designed for Bridal Showers, Baby Showers and everything in between.
Located at 241 South Little Tor Road in New City, RH241 Farm to Family offers brides and moms-to-be a fantastic new NY metro area venue for hosting showers and other private events. The rustic-chic event space seats up to 90 people with views of the historic Cropsey Farm across the street. The Food at RH241 is imbued with farm-fresh flair and locally sourced ingredients. The culinary team at RH241 specializes in modern Farm to Table but is also well versed in many different styles of cuisine based on the customer’s needs.
With a reputation as one of the premier private chefs in the area, Andrew Michaels wanted to bring his high-quality, farm-driven cuisine to a wider audience and provide a unique venue unlike anything else in Rockland County.
“We’re thrilled to take our catering business to the next level and bring our signature culinary and event style to more people in Rockland, Bergen, New York City and beyond,” said Michaels. “We look forward to serving brides, expecting mothers, and their friends and family on their special days with our fantastic combination of innovative food, beautiful location, and stellar service—all customized to fit their budget.”
Andrew Michaels began cooking at a very early age in the family kitchen alongside family members. After college he landed his first job working for the tri-state area’s largest event entertainment-production company where he learned about hospitality and creating memorable events. As his role grew with that company, so did his entrepreneurial interest. In 2012 he launched his first food venture called SMUSH, an ice cream sandwich business that mimicked a traditional NY Deli but offered ‘Deli of Desserts’ in New York City’s Bryant Park and Union Square – it was an overwhelming success.
“As a kid I worked at the local Häagen-Dazs and at my father’s frozen yogurt store, so ice cream was a no brainer for my first venture in the food world.” After selling SMUSH I knew I wanted to move into real food, so naturally, having a built-in customer-base I started my catering company. The response so far has been tremendous, and I am excited to open the new venue and welcome people looking for a unique culinary and party experience,” stated Michaels.
