Emerald Coast Express Menus

As with all of our meals, the Express Menus are prepared with fresh &/or basic ingredients.
The menus are a result of Chef Serafin's extensive knowledge & experience in the fine-dining industry & ownership of a traditional French restaurant which he converted to a trendy menu based on a fusion concept with a nouveau cuisine twist, featuring an award-winning wine bar.
Express Menus are designed so they can be set up on your buffet station, staged and replenished by our chef.  When the guests are through dining, the chef closes the station and departs, leaving you & your guests to party!
Emerald Coast Catering is fully licensed with the
Florida Department of Business & Professional Regulations.
ECC is inspected regularly by the State Health Department.
ECC carries Event Liability Insurance for all of our events.
ECC is a member in good standing of the International Caterers Association
& many charitable organizations in our area.
