Why We Have the Best Hors D'oeuvres in NYC

Green Mansions Catering has been dedicated to creating the best Hors d'oeuvres in New York City since its creation in 1973. We take these one-bite appetizers very seriously, and believe wholeheartedly that they can make the difference between a good party and an extraordinary one. 

It takes a great deal of hard work from everyone in the organization to constantly refresh our outstanding lineup of available Hors d'oeuvres. This dedication starts at the top, with our owner/President Sam Milliken and Chef Noga Andriani tirelessly trying new and exciting combinations.  

Just like every job, working for a catering company has its perks. While teachers get there summers off, and investment bankers get absurd bonuses, we get a chance to be the taste-testers for these five star creations. Recently, Chef Noga and his staff treated the office to one of these tastings. Below is a description of a few of the recently-nominated Hors d'oeuvres. 

Chicken Molรจ

This Mexican infused creation was a sweet, smokey, and spicy surprise. The pulled chicken meshes effortlessly with the mole sauce, and the home-made blue tortilla chips provide a perfect "crunch" as a base. 

Short Ribs South of the Border with Yucca

The shredded short ribs were outstanding; perfectly spiced and immaculately cooked. If there were still a bone for them to fall off of, they undoubtedly would've. The yucca base was a great surprise, providing all of the taste of mashed potatoes but none of the heaviness. The light, airy yucca paired with the short ribs is a personal favorite of mine, and will likely be a favorite of clients in the near future. 

Lobster Profiteroles 

The final one for me to share with you today is a delicious take on a bite-sized lobster roll. The hand-made profiteroles provide a delicate yet substantial base for the lobster salad. The airiness and flakiness of the puff acts as a perfect counteract to the filling bite of perfectly cooked lobster. Whereas many places overwhelm the eater with too much lobster, this creation allows for a perfectly portioned bite.

So...are you jealous yet? No need to be. Just come to one of our upcoming events (Charity Poker Showdown and Wedding Salon) and try our award-winning Hors d'oeuvres for yourself!
