Our Food

Karen Spire Catering customizes the menu to meet the needs and tastes of each client. This approach allows us to explore a wide range of styles, cuisines, themes, and regional traditions. We have created exceptional Latin American and Indian menus, for example, as well as American and fusion styles. Karen Spire’s versatility as a chef allows her to develop the most intriguing and delicious menus around almost any theme or variety.

We know that our clients have food preferences but we also understand that some of our clients may have special dietary restrictions as well. Our experience with vegetarian menus, for example, is extensive. We presently offer options based on vegan or gluten free items, as well as locally-sourced organic. Please discuss with us any food restrictions or allergies you or your guests may have.

Hors D’oeuvres

Hors d’oeuvres can be an important part of your event or reception cocktail hour. This light fare can either be arranged on tables or butlered. Serving hor d’oeuvres provides a great opportunity for guests to mingle while sipping on a drink and nibbling on delicious finger foods. The choices for hors d’oeuvres are endless. Browse our sample list of Hors D’oeuvres to determine how to start off your event.


While some people prefer a plated, seated meal, others prefer to arrange several self-serve stations for their guests. This can be an especially appealing option if your venue has several different rooms for dining. Many clients have been creative with this setup, arranging different themes and styles at each station. This can definitely be a fun option! Browse our sample Main Courses to see how you can put together a great station!


Many clients prefer a traditional plated meal option for their event or reception. Your guests will have a choice between two or three options when registering or RSVPing to your event. You can be as traditional or experimental as you wish! It’s your event! Browse our sample Main Courses for some inspiration!


The buffet option can be appealing because it allows people to move about the event. We often combine a buffet with a stationary display or pass around hors d’oeuvres prior to serving the meal. There are endless possibilities for a buffet! Browse our sample Main Courses to start designing your event menu!
