I'm getting married in August 2011 at a venue that has no in-house catering. My fiance and I are not particularly formal people - the whole reason we chose this space was to avoid the generic 'hotel ballroom' feel - and would like to do an elegant BBQ for dinner. I'm looking for something closer to grilled salmon and medditeranean veggetable salad than to burgers and coleslaw. My problem is that I'm having a hard time finding reviews of caterers that specialize in BBQs.
Does anyone have any experience with a place like Smokin Bones Catering, Simply BBQ, or BBQ Gourmet that they would like to share? These places specialize in BBQ and say they "also" do weddings, but I'm not sure I'm comfortable booking a place like this for a wedding without hearing about others' experiences.
Or would it be better to find a caterer that specializes in weddings and "also" does BBQ? I've heard good things about Noble Culinary Creations. Any other suggestions for general caterers that might also do a BBQ?
I'm looking to spend a max. of $80/person inclusive of food, staffing, rentals (linens, china, etc.) and soft bar - this price does not have to include alcohol.
