Selecting your Event Food & Service Style
• Plated: This dinner service is typical for catering companies at formal events. You may select predetermined meal options for your guests as a choice plated meal or all of your guests can be served two entrees as a dual plated meal. Dual plated meals, while less common, can make your dinner service more efficient and eliminates the need for you to track what your guests select to eat!
• Family Style: Want a more casual atmosphere but still trying to avoid a buffet? During family-style dinner service, dishes and bowls of your entrées and sides will be brought to each table. Your guests will serve themselves and are able to choose their meal and portion sizes. You will be sure to go back for a second serving!
• Stations: A stationed meal typically involves three stationed dinner options. Whether it’s a chef attended pasta station with vegetables sautéed on-site, a mashed potato bar with all the toppings, or a lettuce wrap station, your guests will love the variety of options. This gives your guests a chance to mingle and eat before the dancing, presentations, or speeches begin. Stationed meals also work nicely for standing receptions, corporate mixers, and networking dinners.
• Buffet: Much like a family-style meal, a buffet allows dinner to move faster. As tables are dismissed, your guests are able to choose exactly what they want and the portion sizes of their meal. We always recommend double-sided buffets in order to make this dinner service the most efficient.
• Cocktail: Are you planning a more intimate evening? A cocktail reception can strike the right balance between casual and classy. This typically involves one to two light appetizer stations along with an assortment of upscale passed appetizers that will be served by our staff consistently throughout your cocktail reception.
