Chopped Salad Bar
This chef-attended action station will feature Salad Bartenders who will put together the perfect salad for each guest. The salads will even be mixed in stainless steel cocktail shakers for a unique twist on this classic option. Choose from three salad options:

Visit our South Pacific-themed action station attended by a chef who will treat you to tastes and flairs of the region. You can start with your choice of lo mein noodles or tofu then add chicken, steak or shrimp. Our chef will then toss your dish in a spicy lo mein sauce, with chopped scallions, cilantro, basil, bean sprouts, shredded carrots, red cabbage, crushed pecans and lime wedges. The dish is then presented in a small red and white Chinese to-go box.
Risotto fans will love this chef-attended station where the dish will be prepared fresh for the evening. Choose from three options for the perfect risotto side:
- Portabella Risotto: Featuring portobello mushrooms, white wine and freshly grated Parmesan cheese.
- Steak & Shrimp Risotto: A combination of chicken stock, white wine, cream with sautéed shrimp, and prime ribeye steak with gorgonzola cheese.

Take your choice of fresh fruit and a combination of imported and domestic cheeses from our displays.
We will be featuring a raw bar with peel and eat shrimp, Atlantic red crab and stone crab claw, steamed mussels and clams.
