We specialize in serving buffet-style meals with hot and cold hors d'oeuvres. A buffet-style reception is considered to be the most causal style of meal service and is the most cost effective. Buffets and specialty stations provide your guests with a variety of choices and encourage guest interaction and conversation. Guests appreciate the wide variety of dishes and the interactive element of exploring and sampling from the unique food tables. As you browse the menu, you'll discover timeless favorites as well as some new specialties of our own. We take great pride in making all of our food from the freshest ingredients we can buy, no prefab items, just simple recipes. We put a special touch on our food presentation. All of the hors d' oeuvres are beautifully garnished and served on copper or silver trays. Even our stainless steel warming chafers are decorated to look their best.
