2021 Social Menu Release - Let's Get This Party Started!

Merry Christmas from the Jay’s Catering Family and cheers to the new year! We’ve been hard at work throughout all of 2020 perfecting our Social Menu and are excited to begin 2021 refreshed with our most elevated menu yet! After extensive analysis through the lens of our many years of industry experience and knowledge, our new 2021 Social Menu is shining a light on our tried and true client favorites, best of the best menu items and chef-approved pairings. We have condensed and simplified the new menu to make it more readable, creating an easier than ever process for our clients - We even have all of our venues included in this menu now! With options ranging from affordable to extravagant, experiential to sophisticated, and even more, any 2021 Social Menu selection is sure to impress your guests.
One of our favorite Social Menu updates is the addition of our Featured Dual Entrée Plates. Like a restaurant, our Dual Plated options take the guesswork out of crafting the perfect menu. Each option is perfectly paired with no substitutions or adjustments needed. Instead of offering a single entree and trying to get your guests to decide between two tantalizing items, we are putting both delectable entrees on their plate together. This stress-free meal ensures none of your guests are left the drooling over someone else’s entree and makes the RSVP process and table assignments so much easier for you! Crafted from the kitchen by our Chef and Food and Beverage Director for an aromatic and appetizing dinner, each item sings in harmony on your palate. Let your guests experience all our delicious flavors with the Dual Plated and savor every last bite.
Get excited for this next addition! Liven up the crowd with our experiential Add a Station option. This is our version of dinner and a show. Bring fun and flavor back to cocktail hour, known to be the time your guests are most hungry, or replace one of your main buffet entrees with an interactive food station. Imagined to excite the many senses of your guests by combining delicious food with lively entertainment, our Add a Station option features our most popular and awe-inspiring cuisines. Looking to set your event apart from others and send your guests home with everlasting memories? Look no further. These stations will wow your invitees and you’ll be the talk of the town.
You can now find all our venues in one place! Amazing venues don’t just need to be used for weddings. We are happy to accommodate birthday parties, milestones, graduations, holiday parties, product launches, filming, marketing activations and more at our one-of-a-kind spaces. With industrial, mid-century modern, Spanish Revival, classic ballroom, and colonial estate styles, there is something for everyone. We’ve poured our heart and soul into each of our exclusive venues with impeccable details and perfected layouts creating beautiful blank canvases for you to share your story. Experience a once in a lifetime flight over Orange County at Hangar 21, wow your guests with an authentic, built-in Asado experience at Grand Gimeno, get married on an old Hollywood filming set at Forme, and more. Of course, we are open to other options. Let us bring the party to you at our partnering venues or in your own backyard!
Meet your Event Specialist! We’ve added Event Specialist bios so you can get to know who you’re talking to behind the computer screen or on the phone before meeting in person. You’re both in this together for the long run and our Event Specialists will be your point of contact throughout the entire planning process, so we figured we’d show them off a little in our 2021 Social Menu. Our amazing team is full of ideas, experience, and knowledge and always available to share pointers and tips to make your day go smoothly. From menu selection to layout options and more, our Event Specialists have a plethora of recommendations based off their professional and personal experiences. Sit back and relax while our team does the hard work so you can enjoy this special time in your life.
Let’s kick off the new year together! Start your journey with us by emailing or calling our main line at (714) 636-6045. View the 2021 Social Menu HERE.
