Mininature Bottle of Port and Portuguese appetizers for wedding?

Just returned from a fabulous tour of Portugal and the wedding of our son in a small village in Northern Portugal...near Chaves. The food was bountiful and plentiful from the family farm. We are doing a party here in Northern NJ to celebrate (IN 2 WEEKS!)and I'd like to give minature bottles of port that I saw over there. Does any one know the name of a liquor store in the Ironbound where I could order them from or anywhere else (internet?) where I could order 100 miniature bottles?
Would also like to add some natas pasteries and maybe some Portuguese appetizers to the menu. Any recommendations for where to get good ones in Newark or other Northern NJ towns would be great. Thanks. First time on this board...seems great.

  1. There is a Seabra's Wine and Liquor store on Wilson in Newark's Ironbound - the same importing group also owns a major portuguese supermarket and a number of fine restaurants in the area - while it is by no means the only liquor store in the Ironbound - there are a couple on Ferry St, for example, they would likely know whether the mini port bottles are available here.

    You might want to call some of the major restaurants with your catering question - Seabras Marisqueria, Casa Vasco, etc.

    Teixiera's Bakery on Ferry Street has lovely little egg pastries in a number of varieties and also sell some nice little fried fritters, codfish, shrimp etc, in addition to their good bread and sweets - they may also be the source of a catering recc.
