We custom design each party catering menu to your needs, but here are some ideas for how we can create a great party for you as well as your guests. We have two chefs on staff who will cook for you on site, or we can cook food here for you to pick up, or we can deliver it hot and ready to serve. We provide food and cooking staff, and can recommend clean-up staff as well as sources for renting tents, tables and chairs. We can also recommend wines,
though we no longer sell wine ourselves.
For parties formal or informal, we provide the oysters, crushed ice, trays, condiments and someone to open them. Oysters, both East and West Coast varieties, are market price, and staff to open them is $65/hour.

Surf & Turf:
We don’t carry meat, but for parties we can obtain prime beef tenderloin, and grill the beef and lobster tails to serve together with your selection of side dishes.
Lobster Boil/Clam Bake:
We can do a lobster boil at your home for up to eight people, for larger groups we would need to cook the lobster in our kitchen and bring them ready to serve. A traditional lobster boil includes one live lobster per person (market price), clams and corn on the cob. We include our Creamy Coleslaw, fresh bread, lemons and melted herb butter. Food is priced per person, based on size and cost of lobsters. Price for chef is $75/hour, an assistant is $50/hour, depending on need/size of party.
For more formal sit-down dinner parties, we have our assortment of hors d’oeuvres (above), as well as our selection of gourmet bisque soups, a perfect first course. Our fresh entrees include Salmon Cozies, Stuffed Salmon, and Papillotes (fish wrapped in parchment paper), which can be made with a variety of fish and fillings, including Provencal, Au Jardin and Mediterranean. We can also prepare your choice of fish or shellfish, grilled, seared and baked, or baked, then topped with your choice of fresh pesto, sauces or salsa, and served with your choice of our fresh sides, including Herb Roasted Potatoes, Garlic Mashed Potatoes, Almond & Garlic Green Beans, Green Salad, Roasted Vegetables, Roasted Squash and more. To prepare seafood on site, chef will need to know that host has an adequate oven and cooktop for the amount of food. Otherwise, food can be prepared in our kitchen and brought to your home. Desserts are the same as above.
