What is your signature dish? We really don’t have a signature dish. Every menu is customized to suit the bride and groom. We love to collaborate with them or use their favorite dishes as inspiration for their menu. We do, however, love garlic and fresh herbs!
What advice do you have for brides who are trying decide between a sit-down vs. buffet style meal? Our advice to brides is to evaluate the ambiance they are trying to create and how formal they want the meal to feel for their guests. The other thing to consider is that it does generally take more time for a plated meal.
Do you offer menu tastings? We absolutely offer tastings, after a collaborated menu is decided on.
Do you have a set menu or do you offer custom menus? We do not have a set menu, although we have our staple dishes. Every menu is unique to the bride and groom’s reception. We consider their desires for the meal and the budgeted amount and use those as guidelines to create something custom for their guests.
What advice do you have to offer brides and grooms? Don’t be afraid to do something out of the box that represents you as a couple! Those little things are what will set your reception apart and make it memorable.
