Menu Options

A noteworthy dining experience.

Led by an award-winning chef, our culinary team can bring your menu ideas to life. Whether you’re looking for traditional options or a more regional menu, we’ll work with you to create a plan for meals that work cohesively with your event’s occasion.

Plated lunch or dinner.

Preset salad and dessert followed by a traditionally served meal. Make your event an experience with mouth-watering hors d’oeuvres that can be hand-passed or picked up prior to the entree.

Plus, buffet or grab & go options.

We also have buffet-style food service options. Hosts plan a range of menu offerings, and guests choose their own options for a customizable dining experience. This catering option is perfect for any group size, any time of day.

Our team can also place all plated menu items on grab & go stations in lieu of delivery. Choose from a selection of pre-assembled grab & go lunch boxes or dinner items–individually packaged with transparent lids for ease.

A Audio Visual

Set the scene with the sights and sounds produced by our expert audiovisual team using our top-of-the-line equipment. Hosts can add audio-visual elements to any event space, or we can partner with an outside team of your choice.
