Catering Menu

If you want to make the best event, party, meeting or special occasion, you need to let The Gourmet Deli cater. We’ll design a menu that will wow your guests and satisfy their appetites. We can do anything from party platters for breakfast, lunch or dinner to full or half trays of entrees and side dishes. If you can dream it, we can create it for your special event. And yes, we do offer our signature angel hair pasta salad for catering. Of course, we do. “I’ve been to many family events that were catered by The Gourmet Deli and the quality of the food is always excellent,” a reviewer wrote on “The hot food is perfect and the unique salads are delicious.” Another reviewer wrote on that over about a 15-year period “every major celebration in my life (confirmation, high school graduation, college graduation) has been catered by the Gourmet. I feel like the owner, Dom, is a distant cousin. …The sandwiches are top notch as are the hot foods. The service is fantastic.” So here’s our catering menu. View it as a starting point. Tell us what you’re planning and what you think you want and we’ll help you make your event something special. The menu is large because our selection is vast. The photographs can show you some of what we can do. But that is only part of the story. Photos don’t let you taste. Come in for a visit. Talk to owner Dominick LaMantia. Let him serve you up some food that will impress you. The look of the dishes, the taste of the food and our legendary service will help you have a great event. So what are you waiting for? Start letting the pages and pages of our catering menu make you hungry.

Gourmet Deli Catering Order Guide

We have developed this order guide with frequently asked questions for your convenience. If you have any more questions, please ask. We are happy to help you!


When picking up your order please make sure to know the name in which the order is under. You may also be asked what your order consists of. This is not because we do not have your orders, it’s because we need to know where to look for your order. Ex. Bread & rolls, catering orders, deli orders, cake & pastry orders, etc. Realize when you come in to pick up a catering order it will take time to collect your items, check out, and load the items into your vehicle. You may want to give us an earlier pick up time to ensure you get out of the store at the time you need. During busy times it may take longer to get your order based on how many people are in front of you in line and how big your order is.

How far in advance should I place my order?

We like to have one weeks notice for catering. Bread & rolls can be ordered up to 24 hours in advance. Whenever possible we try to accommodate emergency situations, just call ahead. Be aware that during peak seasons (Holidays, Graduations, Communions, etc.) we may be booked and unable to take more orders, so we suggest ordering as soon as you can to ensure you get just what you want. For Party Trays a 48 hour notice is always appreciated, but not always necessary in an emergency situation. However, a week or more notice may be required for some of our catering. We do get very busy at certain times of the year, so it is always best to get your order in as early as possible to ensure you get just what you want. During holidays we required that you pre-pay for your order. Rush orders or orders placed for pick-up with less than 24 hours notice are also required to pre-pay.

What if I need to change my order?

If there are any changes to your order we must know by noon on Wednesday for all ordinary season weekend orders. For all other days, we required 48 notice from time of pick-up. Holiday orders require a MINIMUM of 72 hours notice for changes and/or cancellations. **IMPORTANT: During the holidays you may be unable to change your order without incurring an additional charge.

Should I pick up my catering order hot or cold?

If you pick up your food hot, the food should be served immediately. You may set the food on a chaffing set with sternos, this will keep the food warm for 2 hours. If you pick up your food cold, you must keep it refrigerated until ready to heat. Remember to allow enough time to heat up your food before your event starts. Sterno fuel is used to keep your food warm, it is NOT used to heat up food. If not specified, food will be cold at time of pick-up.
