About Great Performances
Great Performances brings consummate culinary skill and originality to the table. The company, founded in 1979 by Liz Neumark, is an acknowledged leader in the high-profile events arena and is the first caterer in the country to own and operate an organic farm as a year-round resource for locally grown produce. In addition to the company’s singular embrace of sustainable agriculture, Great Performances has carved a niche as the foodservice partner of some of the city’s most prestigious cultural institutions, including Jazz at Lincoln Center, the Brooklyn Academy of Music and Sotheby’s. The company signed a 25-year lease in 2007 to reopen and operate the Grand Ballroom at the Plaza Hotel, as well as a new floor of meeting space. Great Performances currently has five establishments on its restaurant roster.
