About

"Traveling has been a huge part of my life. I treat each new place as a learning tool. From my early days I learned to look, listen, and journal as many of the sights, places, foods and behaviors as I could.

Moving from New Orleans to Manhattan I found my passions taking me to the fashion world, from there a love for event planning grew. Add in my own strong passion for cooking, and so began my career as a chef."

Upon relocating to San Francisco in the late 1990s Chef Levy took his passion in the kitchen to the professional world by opening a small bistro in the Richmond District, called Bistro 1650.

During the Bistro years Chef Levy learned more and more through experimentation, research, and following his own tune. In 2005 Chef Levy sold his Bistro to give himself completely to the art of catering.

After being in the catering and special event industry Chef Levy is now moving forward and creating other memorable experiences.

Reviews

Ramni provided a trio of delectable appetizers for my open house last night - miniature potato pancakes with bourbon creme fraiche, minature crabcakes with tomato chutney, and orange pepper breaded chicken fingers with hot honey mustard sauce. Everything was exquisitely prepared, and Ramni arrived early to set up and stayed late to make sure everything was cleaned up. I highly recommend Ramni Levy for any event!

Ramni at once struck me with his professionalism and his commitment to the job. He was happy to do a tasting which I was shocked to find that most of the others did not (Taste did not even reply to my email when I asked about sampling some of their food - seriously , get over yourself).

Once we signed the contract, he became more than my caterer, he was the event manager. He brought his NY expertise into everything from how to manage the door, to how to cut drunk people off from the bar, to what I should wear! He coordinated with all the vendors, so I only had to deal with one person, and that was greatly appreciated. He was willing to work with my budget as well as made himself available to meet with me as many times as I wanted.

I would highly recommend Ramni and would hire him again in a heartbeat!

Ramni caters lunch for my office 3 times a week and is excellent! He has been working with us for a couple months now and has yet to repeat a dish. His meals are healthy, fun, and delicious. His creativity shines in every dish and his skill takes center stage. He is a master of so many styles, techniques, and global flavors. For an office of many tastes, he manages to appeal to us all and impress us daily. As a business entity, he is professional, organized, punctual ALWAYS and considerate. He plates meals superbly and even unloads my dishwasher. When I was faced with planning a corporate event, Ramni took on my extra needs and came through for me with delicious appetizers (his Knishes and crab cakes are amazing!!!).

Beyond his fantastic food, great service, and willingness to take on additional events, Ramni is also personable, charming, and a delight to work with. I would highly recommend Ramni Levy for anyone's catering needs, big and small.

I went to an art show event last week and Ramni was the caterer. Wow! His culinary creations are outstanding. Petite twice baked potatoes with a dab of sour cream and golden caviar, all first class. He also served wonderful empanadas in both sweet and savory varieties, yum! Fresh stuffed mushrooms, crab cakes and a wonderful selection of choice wines to accompany the food. They were all selected from the Sonoma Valley region, delicious wine. He also served scrumptious and rich chocolate layer cake as well as chocolate dipped strawberries. Need I say more?

If you happen to get word that Ramni Levy is catering a party, go! The food will be outstanding.
