Wood Craft was launched in 2017 to bring a fresh approach to authentic BBQ and outdoor cooking.

From the start, Chef Salvatore worked directly with local farms and fishing boats to procure the finest ingredients.

Today, the new Wood Craft Cafe & Catering still specializes in catering corporate and other private events with an increasingly varied menu.

Our new cafe, located at 650 College Road East, in Princeton, NJ, makes it convenient to order and pick up your favorite dishes—or try a few new ones—for a quick lunch for yourself or a company luncheon for your whole team.

We are a full-service catering company and can handle everything from a laid-back luncheon to an upscale wedding—and everything in between! We love special requests and can cater to any style or taste.

Our culinary experts are committed to using local ingredients whenever possible, to create the freshest, healthiest, tastiest and most authentic meals for you and your guests.

"Wood Craft catered a graduation party for us for 50 people, and it was amazing! The BBQ was delicious and the side salads were delicious with a modern spin.  Sal was so easy to work with and the delivery was seamless. Everything was set up for us in a beautiful display. My guests were amazed. I would use them again in a heartbeat."

"From initial contact to day of event cleanup, simply incredible.  Owner, Sal, was hands-on - from my initial inquiry, to site visit, to food sampling, to being present the day of our event. Respectful, friendly, professional and lightning-quick responsive. Incredible knowledge of food, menus, service and off-premise set-up."

"Sal was incredible to work with. He was polite, responsive, and extremely helpful throughout the entire wedding planning process. He tailored the menu to fit exactly what we wanted. The food is INCREDIBLE. Almost two months later and all of our family and friends are still raving about how amazing the food was! The team was incredible and made the entire night run so smooth!"

"This is a top-notch caterer in every way. The food is delicious; so many of my guests commented on the quality. The service could not be better: the team of chefs and servers worked with military precision and were all friendly and extremely helpful.  Working with Sal to create the menu and plan the logistics was an absolute pleasure. He is responsive, creative and enthusiastic.

"We recently worked with Wood Craft  for our daughter's backyard wedding. Sal collaborated with us ahead of time to ensure that everything was exactly as we wanted. Our guests couldn't stop talking about the incredible food, which perfectly matched the simple elegance of the event. Sal made sure that there were vegan and gluten free options so that everyone could enjoy the fare, but what really stood out was the freshness and quality of the food - YUM!!"

We used Woodcraft BBQ for our office picnic at a local park and, everyone raved about how great the food was. I was impressed not only with the food itself, but Sal was great to work with, he arrived on time and organized everything so perfectly. We will def use him again for our office and personal events.
