Starlight Catering. Go Your Own Way.

Your guests will enjoy kitschy hors d’oeuvres and retro cocktails in the Loft, a “Top Chef”-­worthy sit­‐down dinner in the James S. McDonnell Planetarium or surf and turf in the main building. You can have it all with Starlite Catering - carefully selected cuts of meat seared to perfection; the freshest seafood; locally-grown, seasonal vegetables; irresistible desserts created on-site; plus premium wines, beer and spirits. Personalized, exciting menus are carried off with skill, innovation and attention to detail.
