More than half of Americans have some sort of special dietary need. Lucky for this majority, the restaurants and catering businesses are paying attention and keeping dietary needs top of mind! Here at Best Events we are jumping on board and making it easy for our guests to enjoy our food even if they do have certain restrictions. With over 6 menus and thousands of items to choose from, we can guarantee that we have something that will fit your dietary need! Just recently we re-designed our menus and one addition we made was to mark appropriate items as Gluten Free, Dairy Free, and Vegetarian. This makes it easier when flipping through at a glance to see what items fit your diet.  If you see something on our menu that sounds delicious but doesn’t fit your dietary needs, just give us a call. We can brainstorm substitutes and customize almost any item to fit your lifestyle or allergy needs!  Below are a few of our favorite allergy sensitive options from our menus.
