Brick Lane Catering prides ourselves on the customized dishes we create for our clients. It is a part of the job we really love and why we have designed ourselves to be who we are. Don’t get me wrong, we still enjoy the traditional menus with familiar flavors that every guest would expect at a lowcountry event. Executive Chef/Owner, Charlie Giordano, specializes in taking familiar dishes and giving them a little twist. This allows us to create dishes with flavors your guests are familiar with, but giving it to them in a unique way.
We hear it all the time from brides, “I really want this but all my friends/family had it at their wedding”. We want to make sure you still get what you are looking, but leave your guests saying “wow, I have never seen it prepared that way” or “I have had that a million time but it has never tasted that good”. Let Christy, our Sales Manager, take the time needed to get all the details needed to create your customized menu.
A Few Ideas:
For plated dinners we love to take the traditional first course salad and change it up. Below you will see two dishes that will have your guests not missing that boring old salad and excited about these customized first course items.

Cucumber Noodles, Watermelon, Feta Cheese, Smoked Heirloom Tomato Vinaigrette
Organic Rainbow Carrot Salad
Sushi Vinegar, Sweet Chili Garlic Sauce, Sesame Seeds, Cilantro, Watermelon Radish, Soy “Caviar”
Shrimp and Grits is a staple here in Charleston. Clients think that they have to have it on their menu when most of the time they are either afraid their out of town guests won’t enjoy it or they see it at every wedding. We have a few tricks up our sleeves to again, give you those familiar flavors but with a fun twist with these Customized Dishes.

Buttermilk Fried Ashley Farms Chicken, Blue Corn Grits, Red Pepper Pernod Cream, Micro Red Radish
Pan Seared Wild Caught Shrimp

These customized dishes won’t break the bank, after all it is the same ingredients just presented a little differently. We would be honored to assist you with making your event a success with a menu that is sure to wow your guests.
