Vegetarian Catering

BunnieBear Aug 1, 2011 02:38 PM

I need to cater a reception for 50-60 people who are very health conscious. Vegetarian in West LA/MdR/CC area with snacks and booze around $10-$15 pp. Any thoughts?

    Samosa House does vegetarian and vegan Indian food. We like it.

    Their samosas -- for what it's worth -- were featured on "The Best Thing I Ever Ate" on the Food Network.

    They can do catering sized portions of all their curries, dal, and so on, plus samosas, rice, naan and the like. They have good desserts, too.

      I go to Samosa House at least once a week and love it. I guess I should have been a bit more specific and stated in my initial post--we are looking for little finger foods. I think that the only thing that Samosa House has that would fit into that would be samosas. However, the people at the reception are very very health conscious (models, fitness professionals) and want things that are uber healthy. Thanks nonetheless!

        I'm really looking forward to the answers you get.

        Vegetarian finger food for ultra-health conscious models and fitness professionals on the Westside for 10-15 bucks a head.

        That's the kind of question Chowhound was made to answer. I can't answer it, but someone will ...

      Try Akasha in Culver City. Very good food.

        I'd look into Joan's on Third. I have no experience with their catering, however.

          Meg with Large Marge Sustainables does a great job with veg and budget. They recently catered the Jamie Oliver show when they were shooting in town: http://www.largemargesustainables.com/

            are you saying $10-$15/pp INCLUDING food, booze, tip, tax, set -up, break-down, napkins, glassware, everything?

            1. BunnieBear Aug 2, 2011 01:02 PM

              Thanks everyone for their help! We want to spend $10-15 pp on just the food and drink (this is an early afternoon gathering and we're not looking to get people loaded--and it's not really the crowd for that). The napkins, tax, tip, flatware etc would be above and beyond the $10-15.
