About Chef Loryn

Chef Loryn's was born in November of 2008, with the love and support of family and friends. After months of planning and renovations to our small yet cozy spot at 250 Main Street in Madison we finally opened to an incredibly busy holiday season. We were very fortunate that a lot of Chefs clients remembered her from her days at Gary's Wine and Market Place, where she was the executive Chef for more than seven years. Some people even remembered when she was the Sous Chef at Soho 33, also in Madison.

Unfortunately in March of 2010 there was a fire at Chef Loryn's leaving us with no choice but to closing down the business for complete renovations again!

But here we are again, better that ever and ready to dish up some of your favorites and create some great new menu items. Whatever it may be...breakfast ,lunch or dinners to go, weddings, corporate, or a small intimate gatherings, holiday parties, or a special birthday party, Chef Loryn and her very attentive staff are ready to help you out!

Thank you for the beautiful presentation and delicious sandwiches you made for our Fairleigh Dickenson Florham Men's Soccer team! The "Box" meal with the healthy sandwich, the cookie and the bag of "Joe's" chips was such a big hit!

On Friday I picked up a quiche Lorraine which we had for dinner Friday evening. It was the best quiche I've ever had in my entire life (and I'm pretty old). I didn't know quiche could be so wonderful. Thank you! Thank you!

You have always been a favorite of mine- had the chicken pot pies for my boys when I went out of town and they agree with neighbor Chris Nallin- they rock. Love the freshness and great ingredients you include in all your dishes. My favorite are your crab cakes. Thanks for all you delicious food!

The dinner was DELICIOUS! Turkey scrumptious. My friend said the sausage dressing was the best of all as it reminded her of the way her German father used to make. I had plenty to give leftovers so I was glad I got a lot. It was so worth it.

I wanted to get back to you after the meeting with my mother-in law, to let you know how impressed I was with the ease, fairness and kindness you had during our meeting. I know your food is great, and Kay loved you.
