What catering services do you provide?
Could you tell me a little bit more about the timeline from initial contact through booking?
What can we expect your style of food to be?
Do you offer tastings?
Tastings are scheduled after an initial estimate and menu proposal have been completed for your event. It should be determined that we are a possible fit (food and budget) for your event before you are scheduled for a tasting.
There is a tasting fee of $60 that includes (2) guests. Additional guests will be charged $35 per person.
Payment must be made prior to the tasting. We offer tasting days each month. Typically we will schedule one weekday and one Saturday. Please note that during the busy seasons, we will not offer Saturday tastings so that we can focus on the weekend events.
Tastings are scheduled in groups. You will taste some menu items from your menu as well as items from other menus.
If there is something specific from your menu you would like to taste, let us know and we will do our best to accommodate.
How do we go about creating a menu with you?
Does 67 Biltmore offer menus with dietary restrictions?
In our initial conversations, please include the dietary restrictions that you or your guests may have so we can plan the menu accordingly.
What types of dining options are available?
Can you provide event rentals?
How many people can you do events for?
How many servers will be needed at my event?
Our staffing hours begin when the staff member arrives at our kitchen to gather all of the supplies, the food and to do any reheating that the event might need. The hours continue to include: travel time to the location, the on site setup time, the actual event hours, onsite clean up time, travel back to our shop, and the time it takes to wash and put everything away.
Many times, on location, servers shifts will end after “the rush” and some will be sent home from the site location.
What does your staff wear during a served event?
Our servers, bartenders & captains wear black pants, black shirts and black non-slip shoes.
Do you have a cake cutting fee?
Do you have a corkage fee?
What are your busiest months?
We are very busy with weddings and catering in Spring and Fall, specifically May and October. If you are planning a wedding or a large event in these months or seasons, please try to book 6-12 months in advance as we are typically booking for these times a year in advance.
What do you offer for children?
Most often, we offer children’s boxes or plates based on what your kiddos like to eat (ex: chicken strips with dip, beef or veggie lasagna, mac and cheese, broccoli, turkey wraps, green beans, etc). If you would like to create a kids buffet or have the children eat from the main buffet we’ll work with you to get the appropriate numbers for the estimate and food wishes from the kids!
Can you tell me about your on-site “Gathering Room”?
Our Gathering Room is located in our Eatery at 67 Biltmore Ave in downtown Asheville. This space is semi private during business hours Monday-Saturday for small groups gathering for meetings or other small events.
For private events, after 6pm and on Sundays, your group has access to the entire Eatery. This space is perfect for seated dinners up to 55 guests and for drop in style events up to 100 guests. We suggest using our space for Rehearsal Dinners, Birthday Parties, After Wedding Brunches, Baby Showers and even small Weddings.
The space rental fee is based on the number of guests and the style of service for your event. The cost includes the staff, bartender, tables, chairs, silver, china, glassware, set up and cleanup time.
Do you offer a site visit?
Yes. We have worked in most venues throughout Western North Carolina so it’s not always necessary but if your event is in a location we have never been or if your event has details that need a little extra attention, we will do a site visit with the venue, you, and/or your event planner.
I am interested in having a bar at my event. Are there any restrictions I should know about?
Some event venues & locations do not allow outside bar services or do not permit alcohol on the premises. Please inquire with your event venue about their policies. If permitted, we can provide the venue with a copy of our Liquor Liability Insurance & Alcohol Permit. For events here at 67 Biltmore’s Gathering Room, we can serve beer and wine but if you would like liquor, you will need to fill out a North Carolina ABC Permit. This should be done 2 months prior to your event.
Can you work at sites without a catering kitchen?
Yes. 67 Biltmore has worked in many locations without kitchens. Many times if the location is near our Eatery, we’ll bring the food hot, right around dinner time OR we can cook/finish cooking the food onsite by renting a grill.
We do ask that the rental order, in the case of the site having no kitchen, includes a catering tent (where we can prep and plate food) with proper lighting and tables.
What areas do you service off-site?
We offer service at venues, residential kitchens, and rustic/outdoor spaces in Western North Carolina. For events far away, please keep in mind that our staffing hours will be increased because of travel time. If your site far away doesn’t have a kitchen, we may suggest menu options that work best at room temperature.
BOOKING & PAYMENT FAQs
What is included in your full service estimates?
It varies greatly upon the needs of each individual event, but can include:
- Complete set up of your tables, chairs, linens, place settings and centerpieces/decor (please specify if you need us to do all of this or just the place settings). Typically, we manage setting up the place settings but if you need us to do the complete setup, it may require more staffing hours.
- Bussing and clearing of tables and guest areas
- Cutting and serving of cake and dessert (we do not charge a cake cutting fee)
- Cocktail hour: passing hors-d’oeuvres, setting up stationary hors-d’oeuvres
- Dinner service: setting up buffet or stations, or providing family-style or plated style service.
- Bartending service
- Providing ice for the event (at an additional cost per guest)
- Trash, compost and recycling services if your site does not include this (at an additional cost per guest)
- Set up and break down of event including re-stacking of rental dishes, tables, and chairs (please specify if you will need our staff to manage the full breakdown of the event. If so, it may require more staffing hours).
What forms of payment do you accept?
For deliveries and served events we require a credit card number on file, even if you are planning to pay each deposit and the final balance with a check or cash.
Do you require a retainer to hold my served party date?
Yes. For served events, we require an initial 50% non-refundable retainer at contract signing. The remaining balance is due 30 days prior to your event date with your final guest count.
For deliveries, if the event is over $500, we require a 50% non-refundable retainer to hold your date. The remaining balance is due the week of your event.
We keep your payment information on file, in a secure location, for all deliveries and served parties.
Could you tell me a little bit more about retainers and the final bill?
Sure! When you confirm your event with us, we’ll ask for a completed catering agreement and credit card to keep on file. We’ll take a 50% non-refundable retainer. We’ll keep this card on file until your event is completed. 30 days before your event we will need your final head count and any final menu revisions. Once we have that information we will adjust the estimate and take the balance of your event. If there are additions to the event following the 30 day check in they will be charged at the time.
Do you charge a gratuity to my bill?
We do not require gratuity on events but the staff is always grateful if you choose to tip. If you would like to offer a tip, please let your catering planner know.
We can either add it to the final invoice after the event, or you can tip your service staff the night of the event.
Do you offer discounts?
If you book (2) full service events with us (ex: Wedding Reception and After Wedding Brunch) you will receive a 5% discount off of food and non alcoholic beverage for the lesser event.
DELIVERY & CORPORATE EVENTS FAQs
Could you tell me a little bit more about Deliveries?
Sure! You can choose any item from our catering menu to be delivered to your next meeting or event. We require deliveries to be at least $100 and delivery fees are estimated based on the needs of the delivery (travel location, setup, etc).
If the delivery is to be at a time when we are closed (before 10am, after 5pm or on Sundays) additional fees are added*. For casual meetings, we suggest ordering from our Corporate and Casual Catering Menu.
Our food can be packaged in aluminum pans or it can be presented in black plastic “caterware” trays for an additional fee. Our boxed lunches are presented in a plastic container and include a “cut kit” -napkin, fork, knife.
NOTE: We can accommodate most delivery days and times but if we have an exceptionally busy day or weekend we may not be able to do it based on lack of staffing and vehicles. Please call at least a week in advance for smaller deliveries and well in advance for larger deliveries.
How do I get in touch with you to learn more about catering or delivery service?
For corporate catering and deliveries, can I get disposables?
Disposable plates, utensils, napkins & cups can be added to your order for an additional fee. Hot items can also come with chafers & sternos to keep food hot for an additional fee. Cold beverages in gallons include ice, lemons, sweetners, and stir sticks. If you’ve ordered coffee, the order includes creamer, cups, sweetners, and stir sticks. Our professional staff will deliver & set up your order. Our deliveries are drop off only as all of the supplies and packaging are disposable and recyclable.
