Is a 5-star chef cooking a meal just for you? Yes.

 Is your food being made in a crowded kitchen? Nope. It's just the Chef making your meal to order.

Are you picking up the food in front of his carport? Yes.

Is the food amazing? Oh, yeah.


Dine Differently

Chef Alex and Liz

We’re Liz and Chef Alex and we run The Sequestered Chef, a mash-up of a take-out restaurant and a caterer, born during the shutdown of 2020. 

Chef Alex Laborwit of The Sequestered Chef

When all restaurants switched to take-out, we noticed that by the time we got our food home, it often just wasn’t as good as eating it in the restaurant. Sometimes it was gloppy or soggy or just blah. Why? Because high-end restaurant food is designed to taste amazing right when it hits your plate. It’s not made to travel and eat later. But great catering is different.

During his years working as a high-end caterer, Chef Alex learned to create menus and recipes designed specifically to travel, so when you reheat it at home, it's perfect.
