Wedding Eats

Back in September I blogged about Johnny's and my trip to New York for wedding food tasting! We were so impressed with all of the samples, that it didn't really help to narrow down our choices. After much deliberation, we finally settled on:

Passed Hors d'Oeuvres:
  • Mini Buttermilk Biscuit with Honey Mustard Glazed Ham and Swiss Cheese
  • Franks in Puff Pastry with Honey Mustard Sauce
  • Twice Baked Fingerling Potato Stuffed with Bacon and Boursin Cheese
  • Beef Tenderloin Medallion on Crostini with Goat Cheese and Oven Dried Tomato
  • Mini Mozzarella en Carozza with Pomodoro Sauce
  • Oven Roasted Mushrooms with Sausage and Sage Stuffing


  • Artisan Cheese Table - A selection of domestic and imported cheeses, dried fruits, assorted fruit preserves and honey, crackers.
  • Arthur Avenue - A selection of imported Italian meats, imported provolone, marinated artichokes and olives, garlic crostini, breadsticks, mustard, ciliegine mozzarella, and fine extra virgin olive oil.

Sadly, Johnny and I did not get to try (or even see) the displays. We were busy with pictures during the cocktail hour and riding on the merry-go-round, so we didn't make it over to that part of the room. However, we did get to eat all of the hors d'oeuvres because the staff thoughtfully kept bringing a plate with 2 of everything on it over to us.


  • Mixed Green Salad
  • Assortment of rolls and butter
  • Chicken Pot Pie
  • Cider Glazed Pork Loin over Braised Red Cabbage with Bacon Jus
  • Roast Beef Tenderloin with Carmalized Shallots and Madeira Jus
  • Roasted Red Bliss Potatoes
  • Apple Glazed Carrots

The buffet was amazing! Everything on it was delicious, especially the beef. I filled my plate and stomach to the brim. Unfortunately, my dress started to feel really tight so I stopped at one plate. I didn't want to be uncomfortable the rest of the night, but boy was it good!

The appetizers were delicious unfortunately due to obligations of talking to guests I did not get my full (lucky for me the kind wait staff hand delivered more goodies) I did not know you guys had gotten 2 of everything--how thoughtful! Bear Mt was a wonderful venue and helpful all around!
