A Special Custom Menu from Green Mansions Catering

     One of our great pleasures in catering is to design a special menu for a group on 23rd street. The menu was done for Holland Lodge No. 8, one of the oldest in the country, founded by the Dutch in New York City and using a Dutch bible. So, two of the hors d'oeuvre were related to Holland and their Indonesian influence. The group really wanted large crab cakes of a style that did not have a lot of vegetables and breading. Here's a letter I received after the event

I want to personally thank you for a world class job last night! The food was delicious and the staff excellent and attentive. The hors d'oeuvre were delicious and perfect. Our crab cakes were delicious and just what I wanted. I have to tell you, you really out did yourself! I was beyond impressed. Thanks for all your efforts- I really enjoyed planning this with you and look forward to doing more in the future.
