Bringing their unique sensibilities, styles, and tastes to each affair, our founders along with one of the most dynamic teams in the city, quickly gained acclaim for highlighting the natural tastes of fresh food.

From small backyard soirees to Barack Obama’s inauguration party, Limelight Catering has pleased the palates of millions of people over the years from all walks of life. Located in the Lincoln Park neighborhood of Chicago, Gutekanst and Lytle—along with an enthusiastic, inventive team—remain innovators in the art of catering and events.

In 2014, Limelight joined The Revel Group, an event-centric agency. In addition, Molly Brewe joined the company as head chef and director of food and beverage bringing unrivaled creativity to the catering scene. The future is bright as Limelight Catering, an extension of the vibrant Chicago food scene, surprises event goers with incredible culinary experiences.
