Buffet & Cocktail Events
Buffet dinners are a great way to host larger gatherings. Buffet party service typically includes two starters, an entree buffet with a protein, salad, starch, side, bread, and two desserts, and is a great service for corporate events, engagement parties, birthdays, and other large gatherings. Pricing is simple and depends on the number of guests and number of food items chosen. You’ll reimburse for groceries for your chosen menu, so we’ll always focus on delivering top quality ingredients. Our service includes chefs and servers as needed for your crowd. We will be happy to suggest a list of bartenders you may contract with directly for your bar service. While we are happy to suggest some wonderful buffet dinner menus, you are free to customize the perfect menu for your event. We focus on fresh, high-quality ingredients without sacrificing on quantity or service. Please, ask us more about our buffet dinner and cocktail event services!
Cocktail parties are great for larger gatherings when a filling dinner isn’t the main focus. These are great for gatherings for the holidays, engagement parties, corporate entertaining, and even tea parties. We’ve found that five savory food selections and two dessert bite selections make the perfect amount of food for most groups. We’ll take care of all the food prep, table set up, and clean up during and after the event. We will be happy to suggest a list of bartenders you may contract with directly for bar service.
