the food.  The History.

Savory Catering was established in January of 2001. Started by Jonathan Calabrese & Anthony Winkler with a goal to provide excellent all natural food made with the freshest ingredients, while always providing quality service and abundant subtlety to all our events. In addition we focus on maintaining an eye and consciousness to our “green” initiatives.

As we have grown we’ve included a highly successful restaurant named State and Allen Kitchen+Bar located at 2400 Allen St in Uptown Dallas and one block down we opened our first sports bar called The Nodding Donkey which is an homage to our west Texas roots.

In 2012, we opened our 2nd Nodding Donkey this time on SMU Blvd. We have never lost sight of where we came from and where our passion started. Savory Catering is still the driving force in a now larger company.

Only our best chefs including Texas native Executive Chef Rhett Dukes are promoted to work in the catering arm of our corporation. As a full service catering company we provide any and all types of catering as well as event planning, site selection, vendor arrangement and production design. We have succeeded at many affairs included receptions, private dinners and off site events.

We currently service daily, many corporate companies’ lunch needs. Through our years of catering service and our restaurants menus, Savory Catering has developed an abundance of delicious options.  

Our consultations are free of charge, and the reason why we love this business.

Our catering orders do include all the disposable plates, cups, napkins, utensils, and condiments youll need, and our friendly staff will set it all up for you.

Daily Hot Meals &/or Commissary Kitchen Management

Another service Savory provides is daily lunches or commissary kitchen creation.  For several of our clients we bring hot lunch, salad stations and the like to their office every day.  Our clients that provide lunches will offer this at a discounted price to their employees or as a full benefit to them.  Our clients that provide this have seen a dramatic increase in productivity as the employees are happy to get nice lunch choices and save money all while staying at the office - this is what companies like Google, Yahoo and other technology start ups have been practicing to great effect to their bottom-line.  If you do choose to engage Savory Catering in daily lunches, full menu creation and production, we will work to design varied weekly menus that fit the specific tastes and requirements of your organization.  We provide the full staffing which is responsible for setting up, serving & cleaning.  Of course, we can also make variations of this product as well.  And if you like what you see on these menus for a single day or a couple days a month we would love to speak with you about ordering from us that day.  Below you will find our current daily lunch offers to our corporate clients and some example prior menu calendars:

Jonathan was a late comer to the culinary world.  He graduated from UNT in 1996 with a Philosophy degree and worked in Health Care Consulting before deciding to go culinary school in 1998.  Jonathan graduated from Art Institute of Dallas as the valedictorian of his class, then Jonathan had the pleasure of staging at The Grape Restaurant under Executive Chef Brian Luscher where he attributes much of his overall ‘how to’ process of running a kitchen.  Opportunity came quickly for Jonathan and his best friend business partner as he opened his own restaurant in Lakewood called Savory Bistro which was met with consistently positive reviews.  From this point he has grown the business over the last 15 years adding State&Allen Kitchen/Bar (2004) and the Nodding Donkey’s Sports Bar (2010), ever present though was his first love Savory Catering that he started while in culinary school and continues to rapidly grow today.  Jonathan works in a supporting role with regards to cooking pushing Chef Dukes to take food in many directions while both work on the overall vision of the food and menus together.  Jonathan spends most of his time running the whole operation while his business partner expands the company in many exciting directions.

executive chef

Rhett Dukes started with State&Allen (Savory Catering) coming on as a sous chef.  Quickly Rhett’s knowledge, passion and skill elevated him to Chef de Cuisine within the company.  The fall of 2014 Rhett was promoted to Executive Chef.  Rhett has a wealth of culinary knowledge with his various stops in Houston where he started his culinary career, to stops in Chicago where he reached Executive Chef Partner before coming back to Texas and settling in Dallas.  Rhett has a determination that can only be matched by his creativity; no task or challenge is a problem but an opportunity per Rhett.  His food knowledge is global but his view is local creating a combination that is as cool as his disposition.  Rhett has taken over complete control of creating new menus for State&Allen and Savory Catering.

Nothing is more important to a Chef than seeing your customers smile from something you’ve created
