Information about Abigail Kirsch


It was the mid-sixties when Abigail Kirsch started a cooking school in the basement of her home. A few years later, when success mandated a move to a storefront, Abigail’s husband Bob sold his business and joined her to co-found the catering business.  Their son Jim joined his parents full-time in 1980 and they never looked back.  The family partnership expanded to include Alison Awerbuch, who joined the Company in 1984 and took over culinary leadership from Abigail in 1990.

What started as a small business serving predominately Westchester and Fairfield Counties quickly expanded to include Manhattan and the entire tri-state area.  In 1990 the Kirschs opened Tappan Hill Mansion and began operating their first exclusive venue.  Since Tappan Hill, the family has added The New York Botanical Garden, Pier Sixty and The Lighthouse, and Stage 6 at Steiner Studios to their exclusive venue portfolio.  The business also operates cafes as part of its venue operations and caters major sports events.

Today Abigail Kirsch, Catering Relationships is recognized as the market leader for excellence in the greater New York metropolitan area.  At the core of its success is an obsessive commitment to perfection. The Kirschs recognized early on that their business was only as successful as their last event. With this focus as a cornerstone, all associates work in unison to provide extraordinary guest experiences.
