Action! The Crane Bay is always on the cutting edge of style, trends and exciting entertainment options.  One of the latest options we’re thrilled to offer is a live action plate up.

We build a kitchen in the middle of the dining area so guests can see all the food being prepared, provoking each of their senses.  It adds a level of sophisticated entertainment to the dinner and fills the room with enticing aromas, sizzling sounds and dynamic sights.

Action Menu

On the menu at a recent live action plate up: a Mixed Greens Salad with Apples, Strawberries, Blueberries, Mandarin Oranges, Candied Pecans, and Crumbled Bleu Cheese with a Poppyseed Vinaigrette accompanied by Sliced Sweet Wheat Bread. For the entrée we served a Black Pepper Crusted Beef Tenderloin Medallion with a Caramelized Onion Reduction and Pan Seared Salmon with a Cilantro Lime Nage.  The beef and salmon were accompanied by Potato and Butternut Squash Dauphinoise and Asparagus with Tri Colored Baby Carrots.

The live action didn’t stop there!  The Chefs cooked to order Flaming Cherries Jubilee and Flaming Banana’s Foster with Caramel Drizzle served with Vanilla Ice Cream and Cinnamon Swirl Bread.

There were also miniature dessert shooters displayed on The Crane Bay’s Dessert Walls and family-style dessert platters were brought to the table as well.

If you want to add extra pizzazz to your event, ask The Crane Bay’s Sales Team about a live action plating.  It’s sure to make your occasion one everyone will be talking about for weeks to come!
