Beyond café services, Epicurean Feast has a long history centered on the culture of giving. We believe that great companies share one common philosophy, benevolence.

 

Through our relationship with The LPM Charitable Foundation, we have taken this to a new level of commitment. We have consistently made considerable investments in a number of organizations, representing a variety of causes. This kind of giving shows our caring for the communities that we serve. Food donations, equipment donations and most importantly, time, are all part of our corporate culture to give to those who are less fortunate.

The LPM Charitable Foundation was founded by Epicurean Feast's CEO Bob Watson in 1991 to help support and give back to the communities in which he lives, and serves through his businesses.

the team

Our management team is one of experience, versatility, hard work, dedication, diligence and respect - for each other, our customers, and the job we do. 

 
history

from the beginning

Sebastians started out as a small Boston-based catering business in 1994, when the founders recognized the need for high quality off-premise catering to businesses throughout New England. We have since grown into one of the leading fast-casual dining retail café and catering companies with three locations, two in Boston and one in Cambridge, Massachusetts. 
 
The 100 Summer Street location in Boston is where the Sebastians retail café concept started with our Signature Handcrafted Salad program. Each salad is expertly tossed in large bowls with choices of over fifty fresh ingredients, dressings and greens. We also make our Signature Salads available fresh and ready to go, made fresh daily.

Guests love the variety of fresh ingredients and the level of personalization in the Handcrafted Salad program so much that it inspired equally enticing offerings including our handcrafted made to order sandwiches, rice, noodle, and pasta bowls. We even serve signature and made-to-order sweet and savory crêpes.

In 2010, Sebastians was purchased by local couple Bob and Laurie Watson, who realized a life-long dream of owning a restaurant in Boston.  Bob and Laurie have over 20 years’ experience managing and operating corporate cafés in 11 states throughout the northeast.​
