Here is what they said about the chef.

A wonderful job

Hi Joey. I wanted to thank you so much for such a wonderful job on Sunday. I can’t even tell you how many people thought the food and service was perfection. Having been a caterer for almost 15 years, I was truly happy with everything you did and your service. Thank you again. I wanted to give you wine but I didn’t have a chance to say goodbye. You also left ice cream in the freezer which I ate some of tonight. My husband thought you had such great energy as well and he doesn’t really talk like that. So thank you again.
