This information will be shared with our caterers in advance of the event, and they will be prepared to address all restrictions. At the sit-down meals, please review the printed menu at your table, and share your restriction with your server if a special meal is needed. At buffet-style or grab-and-go events, stationary items will be labeled and servers will be able to answer questions about the food available.
