I'm planning a small lunch party (~25 ppl.) that I'd like to have catered. Anyone have any recommendations for a caterer in or near Edison that can bring a good, but simple, hot entree and a few sides? No waiter service, just a quick setup and go, so a restaurant with catering service would work too. For various reasons, we're looking for "American" or Continental cuisines, nothing spicy. I have a whole list of potential caterers from the yellow pages, so I'd like to hear about the bad experiences as well as the good.
Along the same lines, does anyone have a recommendation for an Edison area bakery that can make a really scrumptious yet classic birthday cake? This may be something we import from NYC if necessary, but we'd much prefer to be able to pick it up fresh locally on the day of the event.
