"If it had been a Italian who codified the world of cuisine, it would be thought of as Italian," Escoffier
Our chef, Joe Spaziani, graduated in 1979 from the world famous Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, New York. Superb recipes encounterd around the world have been adopted and in some cases improved upon here at Lib's Supper Club. Some dishes are purely original creations, having been created in our kitchen. Lib's Supper Club menu offers no "specialty of the house" except that every dish is a specialty. If our cuisine must be given a name, let it be Italian. From that point we have departed in directions of our own. American, French, and Chinese cooking styles have had an influence on our menu. Special cooking such as ours takes time, we ask for your patience.
Please ask Bob or Joe Spaziani to help you plan your party or gathering. Bob and Joe have over 30 years of experience in catering fine cuisine to the Southern Tier of New York State. Lib's Supper Club has built one of the largest collection of Regional wines from Italy in the upstate NY area. We have wines fron regions far north such as Alto-Adige , Piedmont to the south of Sicilia to Spain and the USA. Also many of our "Cellar Wines" are all award winning vintage wines.
Lib's Supper Club is proud to announce that we are celebrating our 61st year of being in business operating under the Spaziani Family. We continue to cater to our area with the same standards as 61 years ago. Our Chef, a Culinary Institute of America Alumni and over 38 years of experience has helped us create wonderful dishes and ideas for customers whether it's dining, banquets, weddings and retirement parties. Thanks for all your support.
