BRUNCH: Option #2

Seating will be inside the dining room.  Please let me know if there will be assigned seating or if it will be free seating.  We could have a table for place cards in the foyer with pewter framed table numbers on each table to correspond.

The menu for the day would be as follows:

  • Fresh Fruits of the Season
  • Fresh Baked Breads / Rolls
  • Breakfast Quiches

The bar would be open to serve Mimosa’s, Bloody Mary’s, Champagne and a selection of wines.  We could also serve a Fruited Champagne Punch displayed with punch cups.

We would keep a running tab of what is served from the bar and add this amount to the final bill.  Please note that there is an 18% service charge added to the bar.

LUNCHEON – Option # 3

We could serve a two, three or four course lunch menu to your guests.  I suggest picking two to three choices for your guests to choose from.  The larger the party is, the more important it is to keep the choices to a minimum.  Here are some menu items you could choose from to create your own menu for the day. The price per person would be determined by your menu selections:

Fresh Baked Breads and Rolls served with butter to each table

SALADS (served with a seasonal vinaigrette)
