Hand Helds

The Hottest Handhelds for Your Event

One feature of event planning and attendance that consistently takes center stage is the menu. While buffets and fine cuisine have been the frontrunners for events in years past, handheld foods are giving them a run for their money.

The fact is that offering handhelds at your event allows for more flexibility, not only in your menu but in the opportunities, it provides your guests. They can mingle and enjoy the event more when they can take their food on the go.

And before you think your event is too formal for handhelds, it’s important to note that the versatility of this menu option is great for both informal get-togethers and formal affairs, especially when you count on the handheld menu from the Modern Plate.

What Handhelds Should You Consider?

Along with a dynamic handheld menu, we offer fries—either traditional, truffle, or sweet potato—or salad. Some of the most popular handhelds you might consider for your event include the following:

Tuscan Panini: This handheld offers grilled chicken, parmesan cheese, roasted red pepper, arugula, pesto, and sundried aioli on grilled sourdough bread. It’s perfect for a light menu option, regardless of the event you’re planning.

Roasted Veggie: The combination of hearty vegetables includes portobello mushroom, red pepper, zucchini, yellow squash, spinach, Havarti cheese, and balsamic aioli with tomato focaccia. We recommend doubling up on this one, as veggie lovers and meat lovers alike tend to enjoy the smoky crunchiness of roasted veggies.

Fig’n Awesome Burger: To offer something a bit out of the box, consider our Fig’n Awesome Burger. This burger option combines fig jam, caramelized onions, arugula, and Havarti cheese on a potato bun for a delicious and mouthwatering bite.

Exotic Burger: Continuing with the out-of-the-box theme, give your guests a chance to try one of the biggest trends in the culinary industry right now. Our exotic burgers can be ordered with your choice of bison, elk, wagyu, or wild boar.

Filet Sliders: Our filet sliders give your guests two grilled filets on brioche buns, combined with blue cheese and horseradish cream.
