I hosted an event recently for ~100 people, and used Miller's East Coast West Deli to cater bagels, lox and fixings. I thought it worth a post because the platters were gorgeous, the delivery was on time and the cost was an acceptable amount over what I would have spent to gather this together from retail sources, but I didn't have to drive all over town or slice 50 tomatoes at 7 AM.
I ordered nova, sliced bagels and garnish platters, which included beautifully arranged yellow tomatoes, red onions, cucumbers, capers and cream cheese. The bagels are from a NJ source and are far better than most of what's available here, although if House of Bagels were closer to home this is where I might have saved some $$$.
Robby was such a pleasure to work with that I plan to use East Coast West for a smaller January event where I'll tap into their sources for white fish and sable.
