Featured events
 Charity
(Fundraiser Benefiting Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma Society) When one of our most loyal catering clients approached us to see if we would be willing to host an event to raise fund to tackle non-hodgkins lymphoma, we were more than happy to help out! We believe in giving back and what better way to fight a horrendous disease than with delicious food and…drag queens???!!! That’s right! We hosted Bingo night where the guests enjoyed a delicious menu of scrumptious passed and stationary bites and a decadent dessert display and then sat down and played Bingo hosted by a drag queen duo who kept the guests laughing in stitches and armed with amazing prizes and goodies for all those participating. Guests enjoyed chatting and bonding in our comfortable lounge area, playing games, and enjoying the cash bar where all proceeds went to fight the disease. It was a silly fun night and one that we will certainly never forget!

 Bridal Shower
One of our favorite bride’s Maid of Honor needed to plan a bridal shower and she reached out to us – Bite Bar was the perfect, intimate location she was looking for to celebrate her friends upcoming marriage! We planned a delicious menu – small plates of Southern and California fare including plenty of fun small plates, including Fried chicken and grits, scallop ceviche, summer apricot and arugula salad and a gorgeous warm chocolate cake (bride’s favorite) dessert trio. We also arranged for honey pot favors and fresh flowers for the table.

 Wedding Brunch
With less than two weeks to go, we had a call from a local bride desperately looking fora location to host a post wedding brunch for all of her 50 out of town wedding guests…Could we help???!!! Absolutely!!! We planned a delicious, rustic wedding brunch, full mimosa and bellini bar and a beautiful buffet which included our signature croissant-crusted breakfast egg soufflés, seasonal salads, a gourmet sandwich bar and a decadent mini dessert display all paired with local, organic coffee and teas. It was the perfect send off for the couple’s wedding guests who had traveled so far and the perfect opportunity for the bride and groom to catch up with important guests who they wanted to spendmore time with. We decorated the table with fresh flowers, played a special mix of music the bride had put together and hung chalk board signs describing favorite places and memories in the town where the bride and grooms lives.
