Caterers
Any one have a recommendation for a caterer to serve 100 people at a not so formal reception in W. Seattle? Simple, pasta, chicken and some apps?

Already have a few quotes but, not trying to spend $3500 (if possible)..

35 dollars per plate for a fully catered meal is not completely out of the question.

You're asking someone to buy food, prepare the food, and then pay people to serve the food. It's not cheap.

Mic, I agree that's not bad considering all the work / effort put into it, just looking for some recommendations

He's also asking for other recommendations, it's called shopping around.

Take a look at http://twelvebasketscatering.com/ They're fairly flexible when working within a specific budget and their menu looks delicious.

Buy a keg, roast a pig and get some paper plates.

Please be kidding. If not, turn in your Man Card immediately.

Unless, of course, there is a "Yes, Dear" involved and indoor sleeping privileges at stake.

Keep the Man Card. Grandma definitely trumps.

Hi, I am the GM of a restaurant in Ballard called the Hi-Life. I have a few contacts for catering that can work with budgets and can customize a menu for your needs. Give a an email at hi-life@chowfoods.com for more info and I'll give you a call.

Thanks!
Anthony

Try Bard Donovan. Not only is he a fantastic Ducati tech he makes some of the best bbq you've ever tried. Does catering on the side in addition to his day job.

He's in Seattle although his fb page makes it seem like he's in Oregon.
