CATERING

Besides providing our customers with the highest quality seafood through our fish market, Metropolitan Seafood & Gourmet also takes those very prized ingredients and create a catered affair for your special occasion that creates lifelong memories.

 

Your catered event can be either a convenient pickup party or Metro can provide a full compliment of servers to take care of the entire world-class event. We at Metro Seafood also realize that each party is a unique event and we can customize any party to meet your specific needs for any size event.

The following menu items are just some of the dishes and ideas we have created over our 28 year history. And don't forget we're more than just seafood!

 

Although we make everything here on premises, we do not have the facilities to do any proper dessert baking.  We do however have many talented friends so please call for our full line of dessert options.  Remember its all CUSTOM just for you.
