The Right Recipe

Haute Catering by Ridgewells, formerly known as Haute on the Hill, is an upscale, award-winning union caterer founded in 2002 that serves the Washington, DC metropolitan area.

As a sister company of Ridgewells, the 80-year-old firm that continually sets the standard for local caterers, Haute Catering offers the same unsurpassed event planning and high-quality food preparation to clients requiring contract services from a union-managed organization.

A growing and dynamic company, Haute Catering exceeds expectations through superior service, relying on its experienced event designers and talented support staff to accommodate clients in the government, corporate and social sectors.

While we began our operations on Capitol Hill as the preferred caterer to the U.S. House of Representatives, we have branched out to include other entities, such as the Pentagon Library and Conference Center, the National Defense University, the U.S. Naval Academy and the National Archives and Records Administration.

In 2007, Haute Catering expanded when it opened CapitolHost, a division in the U.S. Capitol that is solely dedicated to providing catering services at that site. We also have partnered in recent years with the Navy Exchange Service Command (NEXCOM) and OTG Management.

Haute Catering’s relationship with NEXCOM began in 2007 at the Pentagon, when we took over operations of the Pentagon Library and Conference Center. Our services at this location include scheduling and room reservations, logistics, in-house catering, and managing the Farmers Market Café for employees and visitors.

In early 2009, we expanded our partnership with NEXCOM by adding the National Defense University, where we cater inside the Lincoln Building.

Haute Catering joined forces in 2008 with Philadelphia-based OTG Management, which has brought airport dining to new heights by offering upscale food in a relaxed atmosphere. We prepare gourmet salads, sandwiches, wraps and sides for OTG’s airport-dining capabilities.

In addition to our contract operations, we also offer social catering services to our clients. They include weddings, receptions, breakfasts and lunches – virtually any event that requires extraordinary food and service.

We look forward to perfectly catering your facility or next occasion.
