A buffet takes a lot of the stress out of holiday party planning. There are many reasons why a buffet makes the best choice for holiday party catering.


  • It makes serving dinner so much easier – everyone serves themselves;
  • It pleases a variety of tastes with a variety of menu items;
  • A buffet gives your guests a chance to naturally mingle and socialize.


Creative Choices

Is vegan eating popular with your crowd? Or are they fans of meat-based diets? Or both? With a buffet, you can give your guests creative combinations of dishes that allow them to create their own plates according to taste.

Combine meatballs, served with your choice of pasta and garlic bread, with veggie lasagna, and chicken stuffed with spinach with your choice of rice or risotto. Add eggplant parmigiana, and Italian sausages, and there is something for everyone to enjoy.

You can also tailor your buffet to the event.


  • Is it a more formal dinner/dance? Then add upscale selections like our fresh fish with rice and vegetables, or the steak tips dinner with choice of rice or risotto. A buffet doesn’t have to mean ultra casual.
  • For a more casual lunch in the afternoon, choose finger foods like chicken wings or Buffalo chicken tenders to please the crowd.


A company holiday party is a time for getting together in a casual environment and celebrating all your achievements of the year. With a well planned and executed buffet, everyone can relax and enjoy the occasion.


Founded in 1630, Boston is one of the oldest cities in the United States. It’s the capital of the state of Massachusetts, and its largest city. The city played a key role in the American Revolution, and is still home to many historic sites such as the Freedom Trail, a 2.5 mile walk through the nation’s history. Today, Boston is a center for the arts, business, and education.


There are many landmark sites and events in Boston, such as Fenway Park, and The Boston Marathon, which is run each year. It is a city of neighborhoods, with a diverse population and a vibrant culture, from the busy downtown and Financial District to the vibrant youthful scene of Charlestown and the melting pot of Dorchester. What they all share is a love of good food, and Italian (and Italian-inspired) classics with a modern touch.

Buffet catering for a holiday party lets guests choose their own entrees and set up their own plates. It’s a great way of pleasing a wide variety of tastes.


  • You can accommodate vegan, vegetarian, and meat-based diets by choosing your menu items with care;
  • A buffet doesn’t have to mean ultra casual, and you can tailor your selections to the type of event;
  • Coming up to the buffet is a great chance to mingle and socialize, which is an opportunity for morale building as well as taking in a tasty meal.


Even guests with dietary restrictions can be accommodated, making for an inclusive event. A company holiday party should mean a good time for everyone, and a well thought out buffet can help create the right atmosphere.


Choosing a buffet allows party planners to get creative with menu choices.


Along with sure-fire favorites like meat lasagna, chicken cacciatore with choice of pasta and garlic bread, and meatloaf dinner with mashed potatoes, vegetables, and gravy, you can surprise and delight your guests with unusual delicacies like eggplant rolletini (also called rollatini,) made with thin slices of eggplant that are lightly coated and then rolled up with cheeses and seasonings, and baked.


  • A buffet is also a flexible set up, and can accommodate various settings – not just a dedicated buffet table.
  • It means we can tailor the buffet set up to your space – within reason of course.


A Christmas or holiday party should be a wonderful occasion for everyone – including the people who take on the task of planning it. A buffet is one sure way of reducing the stress of party planning, and helping make the event a memorable one for everyone.
