Party in the Kitchen!
It used to be that couples who took food seriously would host restaurant receptions. Today, gourmets are taking the concept one step further, planning wedding feasts at private chef's tables that offer a sneak peek into the culinary action. (Go to zagat.com to find tables in your area.) Hudson Yards Catering, owned by New York City restaurateur Danny Meyer, created this foodie's wedding, starring upscale comfort fare. After all, the best bashes are the ones where everyone ends up in the kitchen.
For a congenial vibe, serve food on family-style platters. These are heaped with feel-good
fare, like thyme-roasted sirloin with sweet-corn succotash, Vidalia-onion rings with chipotle ketchup, and Yukon-gold fries with blue-cheese sauce.
