We were SO lucky to have The Wedding Party Viewing Party catered by Kate Mantilini! We couldn’t get enough of the delicious sandwiches of smoked roasted turkey, prosciutto de parma, provolone cheese, and lemon basil aioli; and for the vegetarians, Kate Mantilini offered roasted red peppers, provolone cheese, roasted red pepper emulsion, and lemon basil aioli. Both sandwiches were served on fresh, toasted ciabatta bread and they were amazing!

Established in 1987 by Harry Lewis and Marilyn Lewis, Kate Mantilini was an original concept of what was then the Lewis family owned Hamburger Hamlet.  The Lewis family founded Hamburger Hamlet in 1950 until it was sold in 1987.  Prior to 1950, Harry was a contract player with Warner Bros. during the ‘40’s and acted in many films including the classic “Key Largo” with Humphrey Bogart and Edward G Robinson.  When the original Hamburger Hamlet opened on the Sunset Strip, Marilyn waited tables and Harry cooked the burgers.  37 years later and 23 additional restaurants, they sold the Hamlets but kept Kate Mantilini.  The family brought their famous attention to detail, recipe perfection and gracious service to Kate Mantilini and continue to carry on the tradition.  Today, Kate’s is run by sons David, the Executive Chef, and Adam who is in charge of all operations and they adhere to a high standard of quality and service.

2003 brought the second Kate Mantilini in Woodland Hills.  With 42 booths and a gorgeous gardens setting, the feel is traditional and stylish.  The welcoming bar room attracts a diverse crowd, perfect for socializing and watching your favorite game on the wide-screen TV.

Kate Mantilini offers consistent, mouth-watering American roadhouse cuisine that continues to bring back delighted customers, year after year.  “We provide wonderful, American home-cooked meals like (but a lot better than) Mom used to make,” Adam says.
