The summer social season in the Hamptons is not for the faint-hearted. A whirl of high-profile events between Memorial Day and Labor Day enable New Yorkers to keep up with one another in the bucolic though fast paced Hamptons scene.
For the host and hostess of these events, there is the challenge of meeting the high expectations of a New York audience. Sometimes you just wish those New York City touches that make entertaining perfect were available to you at the beach. Swifty’s restaurant, located on the Upper East Side, is just what the hostest ordered. Serving classic American/Continental fare and joie-de-vivre to its clientele of well-heeled and fashionable diners, the restaurant feels more like a private salon than a public restaurant.
Now consider Swifty’s Events, bringing the same level of service and quality of cuisine from New York to your every catering need in the Hamptons, with clients ranging from Bergdorf Goodman to Architectural Digest to Harry Winston and De Grisogono. Swifty’s Events has a team of expert staff and a wide variety of cuisine choices which can be brought specifically to make your event the party of the season. Swifty’s Events staff can cater the spectrum of events, from an intimate dinner party to larger scale weddings and functions anywhere on the East End. They begin the party planning process with an extensive consultation to help you organize all the party components, from food to drinks to wait staff, and any furnishings you might need to ensure the success of your festivities.
