About the Co-Founder & CEO

Kadeem Levine is the co-founder and CEO of Finer Palate. He started the business with his mother in 2019 after a successful career in the catering and hospitality industry.

When they started Finer Palate, Kadeem and his mother wanted to provide much more than a food service. Instead, they wanted to indulge guests in an elevated experience. That’s why they don’t offer cookie-cutter catering. Everything they do is carefully planned and executed to meet their customers’ specific needs.

Originally from New York, Kadeem moved to Richmond in 2016 to be closer to his family. He has also spent a large portion of his life traveling, which has allowed him to explore new cultures and indulge in experiences that have inspired his work.

Finer Palate is an expression of everything Kadeem and his mother love and believe. Good food, passion, and a touch of magic.

“Finer Palate was THEE right choice for our event. They were our caterer for our Volunteer Appreciation Gala. We were very well satisfied and could not have asked for a better company to partner with. Our menu was fantastic, and the food was great! Also, they worked very well with our decor options and added to our event is a very meaningful way. I am EXTREMELY pleased with the professionalism and communication. All call and emails were handled promptly and with care. On site at the event, they were set up with time to spare. Their team were all dressed professionally and served our guests with a smile! I HIGHLY recommend Finer Palate for your next event!”
