SpoonFed's New York Country will be a casual dining experience serving a delicious southern-fusion cuisine with a friendly and personable atmosphere. Our menu is a blend of American classic dishes and southern style cooking that is layered with herbs and spices found in many other cultures. The mission of SpoonFed's New York Country is simple, 1) Serve quality and great tasting food, 2) Create a relaxed and friendly atmosphere 3) serve, serve, serve.
It's true that a lot of start up companies and restaurants can trace their humble beginnings back to selling meals out of their cars, garages, and small home kitchens. Selling one meal at a time, catering companies and restaurants were established. A somewhat similar story holds true for SpoonfedNYC as well, except it was the brainchild of the backstage hair and makeup team at one of New York City's biggest musicals, Wicked. Working as a dresser on Broadway and TV for nearly 13 years, Randy Witherspoon began cooking and sharing his food and his love for cooking with his co- workers. Part of his nature and charm was seeing others enjoy the foods he had grown up with in South Carolina by recreating his grandmother's recipes. Cooking was a hobby, it was therapeutic, and it was an enjoyable and undeniable passion. On one of these occasions of, "Look what I cooked today," the hair and makeup crew approached Randy and said that they would gladly pay him for his meals, and they were positive that others would, as well; here people were saying out loud, "Take our money, please!"
From that moment on, SpoonfedNYC was in development. Every cast and crew member added comments, ideas, suggestions and most of all, support, to help Randy formulate, create and start his own catering company. From Randy Witherspoon's nickname, Spoon, the name SpoonfedNYC was born, and "Eat Like You Mean it, Honey!" quickly became the slogan. That was 2009. The test drives of delivering meals backstage to one show led to taking orders from multiple shows. SpoonfedNYC became a familiar and welcomed name backstage, especially on matinee days. If orders were not placed, meals would still be delivered and left inside the stage door or in the Green Room. People paid using the honor system or with an I.O.U. Not only did this foster a family-like attitude of trust, but it became the cornerstone of the SpoonfedNYC branding. Its that attitude and atmosphere of family, along with our proven menu of favorites -- that Hell's Kitchen will experience with Spoonfed's New York Country restaurant.
I am truly humbled by our investors who have already made it possible for me to be this close to doing what I so love to do, cook, share and be of service.
