The folks at Brooklyn Based broke the news that the Texas-style BBQ joint, founded by James Beard Award semifinalist Daniel Delaney in November 2012, is taking action against the “downright horrible” food trends that dominate wedding receptions the only way they know how: With delicious, near-excessive amounts of meat.
Starters include lamb belly, mini pulled pork tacos, jalepeño weenies and a number of different ways to consume brisket. And don’t fret if some of your guests are vegetarian: items like red quinoa with squash, shelling beans and balsamic, and buttered radishes among other meat-free options are on the menu too.
For the main attraction, Delaney is dishing “family-style” amounts of various meats including brisket, pulled pork, and pork ribs alongside distinctly Southern side dishes like collard greens and cornbread. All that can be followed up with an assortment of seasonal pies along with a small wedding cake they’ll order for you from a local bakery.
And unless you’re planning on having a dry wedding (?!), it’s worth looking into their beverage packages, which includes a full bar stocked with liquor, wine and “approachable, domestic craft beers.” You can take a look at the full menu here.
The eatery is even offering to take care of the decidedly less fun aspects of wedding planning and will rent everything from tables and cutlery to wedding venues in your stead.
You’ll have to call or email the Delaney catering team to find out exactly how much all this will cost (and we’re guessing it’ll be a pretty penny), but if you’re already sold on the idea of having BBQ on your special day, there’s an online form you can fill out here. After that, start looking for non-white wedding clothes.
