We work with you to customize and personalize a menu specific to your appetite. Our chefs are highly experienced in all types of cuisine, including: French, Italian, Mediterranean, Southern, Latin, Southwestern, Asian, and American.

Do you help with the beverage experience?

We customize a beverage experience to pair perfectly with your culinary experience. This includes creative signature drinks, craft cocktails, and wine selections.

"If you want to have the most magical day of your entire life…you should probably hire Lauren Allen. I’m in awe of how insanely perfect, beautiful, professional, delicious, and thoughtful our day was. It’s all in the details and Lauren & Sarah think of ALL OF THEM. Thank you guys for creating magic. Our wedding day truly felt like a dream."




I have used Lauren Allen for four occasions - Christmas Eve, Super Bowl party, ladies' lunch and prom dinner. They are such a joy to work with and the food is always delicious. My guests rave about the wonderful service and food. I highly recommend that everyone use them!
