Catered Appetizer Help!

Okay I received some great advice for mini desserts from this board so now I am in need of some appetizer advice. I am throwing a baby shower for my sister in April and at first I was planning on making the appetizers myself but now I have decide against that. So my question is who or what company is the best to go with for catered appetizers or starters. I hate to just google and get random picks. So your suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

  1. What part of town are you in? My favorite place to go to for prepared appetizers is Nicole's Gourmet, in South Pasadena. It's especially good if you want to go with a french theme -- they have great cheese plates, smoked salmon, pates, quiches, etc. The menu is small, but everything is good. They only do take-out (no on-site catering). Here's a link to their website and catering menu:

    Another good place is Joan's on Third (in the West Hollywood area). They have a much broader menu of appetizers and will also deliver. Here's a link:

    Another choice, on the westside, is Clementine. They also will deliver, and have a good selection of appetizers.
