The Royal Banquet is located on Hillsborough Street, right across the street from Meredith College. This historic jewel of a venue is just minutes from Raleigh’s bustling downtown scene. The Royal is an exceptional location with an old world feel. The elegant tones and décor, with the wrought iron chandeliers, really highlight the charm of this historic building. You’ll love the exposed brick walls as they provide a great backdrop for pictures. Need a large venue? The Royal can accommodate a maximum capacity of 300 guests. This makes The Royal one of the top venues for all life’s special occasions including anniversaries, baby showers, Bar/Bat Mitzvahs, birthdays, bridal showers, christenings, corporate events, debutante balls, engagement parties, graduations, holiday parties, memorials, proms, quinceaneras, and even sweet 16 parties.
Catering By Design had the wonderful pleasure of catering a beautiful wedding reception here last weekend. We’ve highlighted the post with some of our favorite pictures, but to see the entire gallery, please visit our Pinterest gallery. This wedding reception meal was unique as the bride and groom chose to have an updated American Breakfast for dinner. The buffet featured a Four Cheese Egg Casserole that was served with Applewood Smoked Bacon, Sausage, Cheesy Grits, and Diced Seasoned Potatoes. The breakfast menu was completed with our homemade Biscuits with Butter and Jelly.
Fresh Waffles were made on-site and served at an interactive waffle station. These golden brown delights were paired with Maple Syrup, Whipped Cream, Mixed Berries, and Chocolate Sauce. The kids were more excited to eat the waffles than they were the special desserts.
Also featured at the reception was our Made to Order Omelet Bar. They were so good that our team had to work double time to keep up with the demand of the hungry guests. The omelet bar included Shredded Cheddar, Feta, Bacon, Ham, Red Peppers, Mushrooms, Onions, Spinach, Grilled Vegetables, and Salsa.
Since the wedding day was actually “Pi Day”, the bride and groom opted to have a wonderful array of homemade pies for dessert. They were absolutely gorgeous and the meringue work was outstanding.
