Specialty Drinks and Catering For Small Groups From Our Favorite Locally Owned Restaurants
At press time, which means that I’m writing this in late December, my publisher wanted to feature a few of our local restaurants and what they are doing with specialty drinks and catering for small groups. Sounded like a great plan. Our restaurants have been hit hard, and I hope by the time this hits your mailbox you will have supported as many as you can – and as often as you can. All of these I’ve highlighted have supported our community’s nonprofits, so it’s more than time to give back:
Wolf Creek Restaurant and Brewery
As 2020 came to a close we couldn’t help but imagine that most of us will be ushering in the New Year with exponentially more jubilation than in years past. The thought of putting 2020 behind us and looking forward to good times to come is exciting, to say the least. Here at Wolf Creek we not only share in that anticipation, but we are also always looking for new and creative ways to deliver what you’ve come to expect from us; solid craft beer, delicious “scratch” recipes, out of this world “homemade” desserts, and that feel of community that we share with our customers. If you’ve been coming here for any length of time, you’ll know that we love our “Wolf Pack”!
In light of all that, we have some exciting things coming your way! First of all, we are carrying over our Holiday Sangrias simply because they are THAT good! If you love red wine, we have a tasty Pinot Noir with fresh orange and warm winter spices. If white wine is your thing, we have a crisp and fruity Sauvignon Blanc with pear, apple, cinnamon and rosemary. Both versions are packaged To Go in a super cute 34 ounce carafe. For our IPA lovers – we know you’re out there – we’ve put together an IPA sampler pack to go! That’s four 16 ounce cans: 2 Tropical IPA’s, 1 Lone Wolf IPA, and 1 Alpha Wolf IPA. That’s 64 ounces for just $15.99.
We’d love to see you soon!
Old Town Junction
We are running three family meals per week all that feed three to four people. These are great for families, or can be combined to feed larger groups. We also have fully customizable catering available and will work with your guest count and budget. We can box all meals separately to support a socially distant work lunch or “family style” for a household. Wine, beer, and craft cocktail pairing available.
Guest favorite craft cocktails include:
White Linen made with Junipero gin, Elderflower, fresh lemon, citrus simple syrup, cucumbers, & basil.
Rose Garden made with Tito’s Handmade Vodka, Elderflower, strawberries, fresh lemon, prosecco.
Old Town Fashioned made with Buffalo Trace bourbon, bitters, sugar cube, Luxardo cherry, orange peel, and beef jerky.
Drink specials to include a selection of craft “mocktails” made with distilled non-alcoholic spirits.
Salt Creek Grille
For over 20 years Salt Creek Grille has specialized in on and off-site catering in any form that can be imagined. Options have ranged from group order drop off to full service catering, for groups or any size. Choose from Salt Creek full menu options or we can work with you on fully customized menus tailored to fit any environment and budget! We are also continuing our Daily Meal Specials to-go; most are for 2 or a family of 4 Sunday through Friday, or our exclusive Date Night specials on Saturday nights. The Family Meals or Date night Dinners can be combined to accommodate larger groups as well. We have had a few Zoom parties who have ordered multiple dinners, for their guests to enjoy in their own homes while “zooming” together online. We offer our popular menu items as well as unique offerings devised by our executive chef. Our specials are different every night, follow us on Facebook and Instagram to see our daily specials, posted daily by 12:00 noon.
Also available are our unique cocktail offerings, including our Cristini Martini, the best Old Fashioned in town, and our new Ruby Jubilee. All are available in our 16 oz to-go containers. Watch for daily specials on our cocktails, wine and beer, also posted with our Daily Specials and posted to Facebook and Instagram daily by 12:00 noon.
Olive Terrace Bar and Grill
As a long-time resident of the Santa Clarita Valley we would like to extend our gratitude and thanks for the outpouring of support from the community to help keep our family owned restaurant surviving during these perilous times. 2020 has been a challenge for all to say the least and for that reason our team would like to spread some holiday joy your way!
We have expanded our outdoor seating with “Alfresco Dining Under Tents” with additional heaters and ready to accommodate our guests, as soon as we are allowed for dine-in operation. Our chefs have hand crafted an assortment of family style Wine Pairing menus and a one of a kind holiday menu now available for post-holiday orders just in case you didn’t eat enough! This special menu will be offered in a la carte or three course family style formats (which would include Salad, Entrée, Sides and Dessert) and will feature several new and exciting items such as our Beef Wellington, Roasted Peking Duck and Filet Mignon with Lobster Tail! For those worried about whether or not our Paella will be on the menu, we can assure you it certainly will be! This as well as a handful of our classic favorites such as the Herb Crusted Sea Bass, Lobster Ravioli and Chicken Kabob will also be available for order.
Please visit www.oliveteracebarandgrill.com for full menu offerings or feel free to contact us directly at the restaurant for information on our full menu offerings, catering events and weekend dining package specials.
