    Confidence in your catering choice and more!

    The Clean Plate Club catered our Friday evening Welcome to Nashville event prior to our son's wedding in October 2021. But "catered" is not an accurate description of what Monica and company can do for your event. She handled the event rental supplier relationship as well as the beverage provider. That kind of engagement took a load off our shoulders and gave us confidence that it would be a successful, well planned event. The menu choices gave us plenty to choose from and provided a "nod to Nashville" opportunity if you want to select some local flavor. That's five stars in our book!

    If you want a sure thing, go with Clean Plate Club!

    Monica and her team at the Clean Plate Club delivered such incredible and delicious food for my wedding in May. The tasting was really fun, and everything was exactly as discussed on the day of. The service and buffet set up were executed beautifully. I'm still in awe of the logistics. The timing of everything went off without a hitch so I didn't even have to think about it. Pro tip: get the biscuits.

The Clean Plate Club are amazing chefs! We've had the Wedding Planners Of Nashville meeting at our venue, Tucker's Gap, and the staff was amazing and helpful, leaving our kitchen spotless. The food they served was perfectly cooked, and the presentation was beautiful. The wedding planners all enjoyed theme, and I'm sure were won over at that time if not already!
