catering/to-go food for small (12 person) informal event

kwalaty | Nov 8, 2009 07:58 PM

hi chowhounds,

i grew up in san francisco, but have been living on the east coast for many years, and will be back home visiting my family for a celebration at our house. we were going to cook, but none of us feel up for crafting a delicious menu and slaving in the kitchen all day.

can you please recommend places that would take to-go or catering orders for a small event like ours? we'd love anything mediterranean, new american, or tapas-style, though we're open to whatever's good. i know many suggest Costco or Whole Foods, but it's a special enough occasion that we want to go above and beyond the usual. we'd especially love a local/slow food option, if possible.

thanks for your advice!!
