Cocktail Buffet

Cocktail Buffet

A little less “formal” than a sit down dinner, our Cocktail Buffets are ideal for bridal showers, bar/bat mitzvahs, small in-home wedding receptions, communion celebrations, company barbeques, and anything else you can imagine. Even for no reason at all – just invite some friends, and let Chef Geoseff handle the rest.

People love a buffet with a myriad of food choices, especially if it’s done right. Forget the barely warm ziti that most buffets are famous for – Chef Geoseff will provide your guests with tray after tray of truly wonderful food – people will “ooh and ahh” as they go back for seconds and thirds. Plus, you’ll have a ton of leftovers for next weekend!

For your next party, make it an Eight Ate at Eight BUFFET!
