Ala Carte vs. Set Menu

Posted on

This week we will be exploring the differences between Basic and A la Carte menus – giving you the ability to make a more informed choice about which kind of menu will suit your next event.

SET MENU
A set menu (also known as “basic”) is a menu without choices or substitutions. These menus are popular for weddings and other events that feed a wide variety of people. With a set menu, they appeal to larger audiences, and also may offer food that people wouldn’t otherwise choose to eat. Set menus are also typically priced lower than A la Carte.

A LA CARTE
A la Carte is where the customer chooses exactly what they would like to eat. It differs from a buffet, because you do not typically fill your own plate with A la Carte – rather – choosing from a menu. The price tag is higher, but so is the customization.

Choosing catering options for your event may seem overwhelming, so remember that we are here to help. If you have questions, and would like to discuss your catering options, give us a call today on (650) 961-3300.
