Catering staff

The Astor House culinary team, led by Executive Chef John Donnelly, can create everything from a small cocktail menu to a lavish wedding feast. Donnelly is a graduate of Johnson & Wales University in Providence, Rhode Island, and an alum of some of New York’s finest hotel kitchens, including the Drake Swissôtel, the Regal UN Plaza, and the Helmsley Park Lane. As chef and co-owner of the old Sag Harbor hotspot Oasis, Donnelly received rave reviews for his sophisticated cuisine. The Wine Spectator called his creations “unpretentious and well-conceived across the board.” At The Astor House, Donnelly’s talents shine in his delicious menus that blend a farm-to-table sensibility with sophisticated international flavors.
