Catering Raleigh’s Weddings: The Stockroom

Posted in: Catering in Raleigh NC, Raleigh Catering, Raleigh Catering Services, Raleigh Wedding Venues, Wedding Catering Raleigh, Wedding Venues

While Fayetteville Street was lit up with the festivities of the annual SparkCON event, Catering by Design was catering one of Raleigh’s newer downtown event venues, The Stockroom at 230.

Right on Fayetteville Street, with a narrow door that you could easily miss, almost like a secret spot, you enter, walk down the hall, take the elevator to the second floor and turn right twice to enter the hall.

It’s a large space, with an upper landing, where we set out our bar, and the large lower area ending in windows overlooking the street next to Fayetteville Street.

This wedding was for about 150 people. We had a table set with sweetened and unsweetened tea, lemonade and water. We set up a long buffet table serving on two sides to accommodate this larger number of guests. We staffed a bar with wine and beer, had servers walking around offering hors d’oeuvres, and had a carving station where one of our chefs would carve individual servings for guests.

Here is the menu for the evening.

Carving Station

Top Round Beef

Baked Salmon Encroute

Horseradish & Mustard Sauces

Balsamic Onion Marmalade

Sauce Sorrel

|

Bow Ties Pasta with Grilled Chicken

Italian Sausage, Fennel

Tomato Cream
