A way to your guest’s hearts is through their stomachs and that means planning out not just a scrumptious celebrations but a magnificent menu that they’ll remember for generations to come. Here on Long Island you have access to some of the most amazing cuisines you can find anywhere else.
Here are some of our most mouthwatering suggestions for every type of event.
A Bountiful Brunch: As morning fetes gain in popularity because of their cost effectiveness, consider delighting guests with some gourmet morning and afternoon delights. Think brunch buffet replete with several types of custom crafted omelets, meat stations and a host of haute breakfast bar selections including a pancake and waffle bar with some custom crafted delicacies.
Fresh Ideas: Instead of giving guests a traditional parting gift considering giving them a healthy, fresh, local gift basket featuring local fruits, locally made jam, homemade pies, etc.
DIY Food Stations with a Theme: Let guests get in on the food experience by letting them create their own favorites. Pick a theme like a Mexican food bar and feature a variety of gourmet guacs or hot sauces…or how about a pasta station with a variety of pastas, ravioli and sauces.
Comfort Foods: With rustic continuing to be all the rage, laid back, minimalist events are taking center stage, especially since they are also cost effective. Treat guests to familiar favorites like burgers with gourmet fries or custom crafted potato chips. And, while you don’t have to have a lavishly luxurious feast, you SHOULD make sure remember that even for the simplest fare, presentation is everything.
Champagne Wishes and Caviar Dreams: Consider a very Gatsbyesque champagne tower with English-style tea sandwiches for any occasion.
Local Grub and Pub: Food from local farms and beer and wines from local vineries and distilleries are topping the trend list right now.
Give Guests Their Just Desserts: Consider towers of culturally centered desserts such as a baklava cheesecake, a rainbow cookie cake tower, a crepe cake etc.
Midnight Snacks: Besides an afterhours bar with aperitifs, consider a midnight snack bar replete with food trucks, cookies and milk etc. We would also recommend some breakfast favorites if you’re planning on having your party run well into the next morning. Serve up some fresh squeezed juices, coffees etc.
