Family Style Brunch & Homemade Cookies

Our classic morning spread brings families together around the table for a simple and filling brunch. We import our fresh made bagels from a local Berkeley bakery and serve up sesame, original, and marble halves. Accompanying it is cold creme cheese and flavorful lox. We take care with our presentation as well as the functionality […]

Dinner with Continuity

Lunch in Tilden Park was a great idea, dinner was an even better one. We set up a burrito bar to die for. First things first: warm flour and corn tortillas wrapped in pairs in foil. Everything to follow was set up for the burrito connoisseur to create whatever delight they’d like. We had browned […]

Lunch with Continuity

We filled the lunch hour with a variety of dishes. First was a classic mac-n-cheese with that golden crunchy layer on top. Secondly we had a dish that was equally unique as the last one was traditional: eggplant cheese cake. It was a sweet and savory dish that combined fresh cheese and roasted vegetables. Following […]

Skewers and Sliders

Our Hors D’oeuvres menu had an amusing twist tonight: sliders! We served up bite-sized burgers with spicy ketchup and dijon mustard on a toasted brioche bun. A cousin of this burger is the portabella mushroom slider with bell pepper aioli. Hot fried Falafel balls (see last week’s picture-esque post) with an ice cold lemon-tahini dipping […]

Golden Roasted Veggie Recipe

Roasted Vegetables This dish is always one of the first to need a refill. Our servers know to keep a close eye on the bowl and our chefs know to prepare a significant quantity. We have rarely seen left overs. It is also particularly useful for home cooks because it can be prepared and easily […]

Step-by-Step Falafel

Step-by-step falafel… in pictures only. Our falafel recipe has been perfected through the culmination of culture and years of practice. We aren’t quite ready to share our secret in precise measurements and ingredients but are obliging those curious about the process:              

Bat Mitzvah Picnic

The celebration of a young girls coming of age took form with a delicious Falafel Bar, delightful desserts, and beside a placid lake. Our staff set up tables with fresh, bright linens to display the homemade falafel (stay tuned for next week’s post, we will divulge some of the falafel making process). And what is falafel […]

Hors D’oeuvres Galore

Butternut Squash Fritters

A night of hors d’oeuvres to satisfy every craving:   A shocking combination is always our sizzling hot Crab Cakes topped with the perfect key-lime green dollop of lime wasabi aioli. The two compliment each other so naturally that it can only be described to the mind through the mouth. Our sports-bar-esque sliders are made […]

An August Evening Wedding

Dinner was a three part assembly, starting with a Sweet Heaven salad – an aptly named dish with crunchy romaine hearts chopped up and topped with juicy mango, maroon earthy beats, ripe avocado, pickled red onions, and a perfectly balanced balsamic vinaigrette. Since Thai food always goes over well, we crafted an egg noodle dish to join […]

Rich and Simple

A celebration is meant for everyone to come together with full hearts, shared stories, and gathering around a meal. Our presentation mirrors that: we offer a hearty menu, passed hors d’oeuvres, and food for communities to be enjoyed around. We start by sharing appetizers like Organic Medjool Dates: a natural sweetness stuffed with robust Gorgonzola […]
