Description: Website states: Joan’s on Third is a family owned and operated Gourmet Marketplace, Café and Full Service Catering and Event Planning Company.
Joan, originally from New York, spent years in the kitchen working with Dione Lucas. She ran Lucas’s cooking school as well as owning her own restaurant in Manhattan, before coming out west to raise a family. Joan’s on Third first opened its doors in 1995 as a catering company.
Joan’s older daughter, Carol, joined her mother in the business after attending Cornell University’s School of Hotel Administration. Carol has been indispensible to her mother in making Joan’s on Third the caterer of choice in Los Angeles: from planning parties and creating menus to her impeccable attention to detail. The L.A. scene, brimming with special events and film premieres, was the perfect arena for Joan’s on Third to establish its culinary reputation for serving comfort food in a sophisticated setting.
