It’s so much more than food. We’ll handle all the details from chairs to china to linens to ensure a presentation that makes sense logistically and wows everyone.
Expert level planning
Expertly crafted weddings come together like magic, but underneath that is organized professionals. Our clients especially appreciate our transparency and clear proposal process.
No. No matter what the occasion (wedding, corporate grand opening, birthday celebration, etc.), we do not charge a fee for cutting your cake when we are serving the meal for the event. (However, if you are renting specialty china and flatware, remember that cake service means extra plates and forks.)
Absolutely! We are happy to supply you with a separate quote for bartenders, glassware, ice, and bar equipment. You can have the liquor delivered directly to your venue or deliver it to us the week before and incur a nominal transport fee for us to store and transport it the day of your event.
If we are supplying bartenders for your event, Miraglia does not charge a corkage fee for wine and beer that you provide. There is a fee for bar equipment (glassware, ice, tubs and napkins) that will be included in your estimate.
We offer everything from bag lunches to black-tie, full-service theme parties. There’s almost always catering for your budget. We have some unbreakable standards: 1) if we’re staffing the event, we will not under-staff it, 2) we will not under-portion. (Nothing is worse than running out of food) 3) We will not use frozen, tasteless or otherwise low-quality food. Other than that, you control nearly every cost variable including the caliber of the linens, the length of the event, the types of beverages at the bar and of course, the menu. Solid-color cotton duck or polyester linens are less expensive than textured or patterned linens. Some stationary hors d’oeuvres are more economical than passed hors d’oeuvres. An event that requires our staff to be onsite eight hours or less will enable you to avoid overtime charges. As for rentals, Miraglia fortunately owns many things that other caterers are forced to rent. We can provide china, water glasses, wine glasses, champagne flutes, martini glasses, stainless flatware and truly upscale buffet equipment at a more economical price than many other caterers.
Every event has its nuances and challenges, so we believe that boiler-plate staffing formulas don’t work. Based on what we learn about your needs relative to service caliber and budget, our detailed catering proposal will show you exactly how many supervisors, chefs, bartenders and wait staff you’ll need. If you would like “extra” staff on hand, we’re happy to help. We also believe that sometimes a high number of inexperienced staff is not as wise as a lower number of incredibly experienced staff that have worked in your venue on hundreds of events. As with our event supervisors, many of our wait staff have been with us a decade or more.
We offer a wide variety of vegetarian options. For a sit-down dinner: you should have a vegetarian option available on your response card. For a buffet: we recommend incorporating a vegetarian entrée into the menu. Since our vegetarian meals are so delicious, most guests take a sample, so we portion accordingly. If you know that you will have a very limited number of vegetarian or vegan guests and do not want to provide that option to everyone, we will have a vegetarian plate available in the kitchen by request. This requires some advance knowledge (or your approximation) of the number of vegetarians or vegans you expect.
Kind words from our clients
“As a wedding coordinator, I could not have been more pleased with the service, communication, staff and quality they provided for my clients’ wedding!”
“My dream wedding would not have been possible without this dream team…I received non-stop compliments about the wonderful staff and amazing food the night of our wedding. I would absolutely recommend Miraglia to all my friends and family.”
“I found out about Miraglia through our venue, which had a list of preferred vendors for us to work with for our wedding. We selected them right away after we met Karen, who was fabulous! I worked with Karen throughout the entire planning process, and she was always on top of it.”
