If there’s one thing guests really hope for when attending an event, it has to be an appealing menu. Even if you adore every dish made by your caterer, picking an array of food that appeals to even the pickiest palettes can be a challenge. To help you plan the perfect event (with the tastiest menu), we’re sharing our best tips for creating The Christy’s signature buffet-style meals!

Go Local

Make your menu personal by choosing original St. Louis favorites that will delight both local and out-of-town guests. When you opt for our signature Ron & Shirley’s salad, Toasted Ravioli, or anything topped with Provel cheese (a one-of-a-kind mix of cheddar, swiss, and provolone cheeses), we guarantee your company will be coming back for seconds!

Customize Your Cuisine

At The Christy Banquet Center, we offer a wide variety of menu options designed for perfection and ease of service. However, we often have guests with special requests, such as a traditional dish to honor their heritage or vegan and gluten-free selections. Ask your event coordinator about the different options we offer to customize our offerings to suit your specific needs. Exception is the rule, whenever possible!

Trust Your Caterer

Planning the perfect menu does take time and thoughtfulness, but it shouldn’t be a stressful experience. While we love to work closely with you on every detail of your event, The Christy’s team of professionals are trained to take your suggestions and execute them flawlessly. Once you have made your menu selections, put your trust in us. We will work tirelessly to create an unforgettable dining experience, while you concentrate on preparing for the special day!

If you are looking for the perfect venue with memorable catering services for weddings and corporate events, contact The Christy at 314-352-4800 today to speak with our event coordinators. We will work with you to find the right dining options for your upcoming event and look forward to hearing from you soon.

“Lasell and I thank you for the great service during our wedding reception. Our guests are still talking about you and the food. Let’s not forget about the salad. They want your dressing recipe.” ~Lasell & Teresa Fitz
