I have been telling you for awhile that Eco Caters loves doing custom menus, and here is proof! We were thrilled when this forward thinking couple asked us to put together a station style meal! A station meal is a new trend that brides are constantly asking us about, and San Diego caterer, Eco Caters, loves!
For this meal we put together a cocktail hour featuring a chilled seafood station. San Diego caterer, Eco Caters, prepared fresh Ceviche, Shrimp, Oysters, Clams, Mussels, all served with our Lemon Caper Aioli, and Cocktail Sauce. Guest mingled and chatted while our servers circled the room with our crowd-pleasing Ground Sirloin Sliders with Smoked Cheddar, Roma Tomatos, and Homemade Aioli, zesty Thai Chicken Skewers, fresh Bruschetta with Tomato Concasse, and refreshing Cucumber Cups with Mango, Preserve Lemon, Chilli and Lime. Guest nibbled on all the goodies while sipping on the couples signature drinks, Mai Tia’s and White Sangria.
Once guest were seated, Eco Caters, a San Diego Catering company, served plated salads of Mixed Greens with Cucumber, Tomato, Sliced Almonds, Garlic Croutons, and Avocado Dressing. Guest were then excused from their tables to enjoy the stations the couple and Eco Caters designed together.
They chose to have a pasta bar with our Angel Hair Pasta Checca and Garlic French Bread, a carving station with Rosemary and Garlic Stuffed Tri Tip served with Sauce Gribiche and Roasted Asparagus Marinated in Grapefruit Juice, Roasted Marjoram and Thyme Scented Chicken with Au Jus and Grilled Farmers Market Veggies. Lastly, they had a Yukon Gold Mashed Potato bar! This was very popular. Served in martini glasses with all the trimmings. Guest topped their potatoes with House Cured Bacon, Roasted Garlic, Chives, Crème Fraiche, Cheddar Cheese, Crabmeat Cream Sauce and a Red Wine Gravy.
To top of the amazing meal, the couple created a beautiful room. It was filled with the most beautiful centerpieces. Some even featured driftwood, which gave it a chic beach vibe. The linens were stunning, provided by our favorite linen lady, Irene of A Perfect Table. The room looked picture perfect! Sharon Cole, of A Dream Wedding really outdid herself, even bringing in square tables, something never done in this space before ! Eco Caters felt very lucky to be asked to cater such a lovely fete!
