Whole Foods vs. Andronico's for Party Platters

Jane Hathaway | Feb 19, 2005 10:22 PM

Has anyone had experience (good or bad) with catering/party platters from either Whole Foods or Andronico's? I'm specifically looking at the Danville Andronico's and the San Ramon Whole Foods. I'm thinking a Mediterranean platter, Arum sandwiches and maybe something else (sushi, quesadillas??). It's for 8-10 people. I'm not wild about either option, but this is the one time that I just don't have the time to do the food myself. None of my guests is going to care, but I would really like the food to be nice. One of the regular posters on this board, who always gives good advice, suggested the Mediterranean Mezze platter at Andronico's so that's my plan for now.

I'd appreciate any experiences anyone has had with either of these. I'm really interested in food quality, but comments on presentation would be appreciated too. Thank you so much. I'll be sure to report back after the party.
