Home for the Holidays: Thanksgiving Catering and Dining Options

BRQ Restaurant

The holidays are right around the corner.  That means a number of things: cooler weather, shorter days, and visiting family.  Whether you are heading across town, or welcoming guests from across the country, the warm spirit of this time of the year can also be a stressful one.  Finding recipes, making grocery lists, fighting lines, cleaning house, and finally cooking a feast can take its toll on even the most ambitious host.  Thankfully, this Thanksgiving, you can leave the cooking to us, the dishes too.

This Thanksgiving, BRQ Seafood and Barbeque will be opening its doors and kitchen, offering the classic holiday staples you know, as well as the barbecue and seafood you love.  So whether you want to stick with the traditional, or create a new tradition, BRQ has you covered. 

For those of you that want to stay home, and stay out of the kitchen, BRQ has a catered family package, as well as a la carte options.  BRQ’s Thanksgiving Family Package includes:

·         One whole turkey

·         Turkey gravy

·         Homemade cranberry sauce

·         1 dozen cornbread muffins

·         Choice of 2 sides

·         Choice of pumpkin or pecan pie

This package is designed to feed 8-10 people.  If you’d like to add to it, or create a more customized meal, several a la carte options are available, including: whole smoke free range turkey, all-natural smoked ham with apple cider brown sugar glaze, cornbread dressing, mac & cheese, pecan sweet potato casserole, Brussels sprouts, mashed potatoes with turkey gravy, pit beans, homemade cranberry sauce, poblano cornbread muffins, as well as pumpkin, and pecan pie. 

If you’re looking to get out of the house, the great servers and chefs on Jefferson Highway will be happy to spend the holiday with you.  The specialized Thanksgiving restaurant menu features: free range smoked turkey breast or all natural smoked ham, and a house salad, muffin, two sides, and desert.

Turkey not your thing?  BRQ obviously has barbecue, even on Thanksgiving.  Along with our four homemade sauces (original mild, Louisiana spicy, South Carolina mustard, and North Carolina vinegar) you can choose a pork shoulder platter, pulled chicken platter, or sliced brisket platter.  We’ll also have pulled pork, chicken, or chopped brisket sandwiches on pretzel buns.  How about a Thanksgiving appetizer?  Fried green tomatoes, boudin balls, crab beignets, and sensation salads are also available.  BRQ also has seafood, including: BBQ salmon, LA gulf fish, and shrimp & grits.  No matter what you crave, our holiday menu will have you covered.

So if you’re from around the corner or out of town, dining in or bringing home, BRQ has something you’ll be thankful for.

Home Game Catering: The Baton Rouge Tailgate Packages You Need

BRQ Restaurant

When it comes to Baton Rouge, little can eclipse the importance of hometown football.  Weddings, birthday parties, and other important events are often scheduled around bye weeks and kick-off times.  And, the streets are all but deserted come game time, as we flock to campus grounds or to the nearest television. For a few hours on a Saturday, this is what it’s all about.  It’s a tradition, a way of life, and a good excuse to share great food with friends.

Whether you are setting up your tailgate in the shadows of Tiger Stadium or hosting a viewing from home, you’ll want to make sure your guests leave full and happy.  And, while you may not be able to control how they feel about the game, you can certainly control how they feel about the food.  Just take a look at these mouthwatering tailgate packages from BRQ:

Tailgate Catering for 8-10 People

If you’re hosting a smaller group, these pre-set tailgate packages make the selection simple.  Rather than trying to piece together the menu all on your own, choose one of the following, and let us do the work.

“The Kick-Off” – Classic BBQ catering that is a tried and true crowd pleaser, The Kick-Off includes both pulled chicken and pulled pork with two different sauces, two sides, potato chips, boudin balls and smoked wings (included with all tailgate packages).

“The BRQ Connection” – If a two meat selection just isn’t enough, The BRQ Connection offers an alternative.  Served with the same side options and sauces as The Kick-Off, this package takes it up a notch by throwing in sliced prime brisket as well.

“The Tail Gater” – Looking for meat options beyond the typical chicken or pork?  The Tail Gater offers the same pulled pork and pulled chicken options but includes baby back or St. Louis ribs as well.  Choose any two and pair them up with the sides and sauces of your choice. 

Tailgate Catering for 12-15 People

When you’ve got a larger crew to feed, step it up to our “For The Win” package.  Made to serve 12 – 15 people, this option includes four meat selections: St. Louis or baby back ribs, homemade andouille, pulled chicken, or pulled pork.  Just like all other package options, it includes chips, boudin balls, and smoked wings, along with sauce and side choices.

A la Carte Tailgate Catering

When a pre-set menu just isn’t your thing, or your party is too large to be accommodated by one of them, go for a la carte ordering.  Piece together a specialized package, choosing from appetizers, meats, entrée-style options, sides, desserts, and extras like sweet tea or frozen margarita.  With serving sizes available to feed up to 50 people, you can put together an exceptional catering menu for a party of nearly any size.

So, if you’re looking ahead to the next big game, and you’re ready to host the best possible tailgate party, think of BRQ.  Give us a call at (225) 372-2674, or contact us online, and we’ll make sure you have a feast that can satisfy any size crew by the time game day rolls around.

Tailgate Catering: Why BBQ Should Be in Your Playbook

BRQ Restaurant

Football season in south Louisiana means fun, friends, family, and of course, food.  Whether you’re heading out to your alma mater or to watch your kids play on Friday nights, setting up shop on campus on Saturday mornings, or checking out the pros on Sundays, tailgating is a common activity every autumn.  And a tailgate isn’t complete without a spread that will keep you fed and fueled through kickoff and beyond.  Now it’s hard to go wrong with the tried and true staples.  Burgers, hot dogs, jambalaya and more can be found every few feet, under any canopy; but there is something else you should consider as you draw up your tailgate plans this season, barbecue.    

Of course seeing grills and smokers sending plumes aromatic smoke up in the air is not a new trend, but offering your guests competition style barbecue from the Carolinas, Missouri, Texas and Tennessee along with all of the trimmings can bring your tailgate party to the next level.  And now it is easier than ever to provide.

Catering is a simple way to provide great food for a lot of people.  This practice is nothing new under the oak trees or in stadium parking lots, but this football season there will be a new option when it comes to filling the table.  BRQ Seafood and Barbecue is always the right call, and here’s why.

Farm to Tailgate

The idea of farm to table ensures that all of the food used to prepare your meal is carefully selected, traced, and ends up on your plate as fresh as possible.  BRQ brings this same initiative to your tailgate party.  BRQ works closely with all of its purveyors to ensure that each piece of meat, vegetable, fruit, and dish is prepared and served in the best way possible. 

BBQ Catering Options

BRQ’s catering menu offers several options.  Whether you want to customize your order or select a package that will meet your needs, you can do either.  With everything from appetizers, like smoked queso, boudin balls, and BRQ’s homemade chips to traditional handmade sides like mac and cheese, potato salad, and poblano cheddar cornbread you can have something for everyone.  Now don’t forget the meat.  Pulled chicken and pork can be ordered in one pound increments and there are also St. Louis ribs, baby back ribs, and whole BBQ chicken options as well.  Last, but certainly not least, there’s desert.  Freshly baked carrot cake, chocolate cake, and bread putting can be the perfect ending to a great meal.

For larger gatherings you can choose between “The Smokehouse”, “The Pit Boss”, and “The Big Q”.  These packages allow you to choose a combination of sides, meats, and sauces in different quantities.  This allows you to put the catering on cruise control.

Additional Catering Services

Setting up a tailgate can be quite a bit of work.  Staking out your spot, setting up the canopy and generator, filling ice chests, the list goes on and on.  This is one reason why BRQ offers additional services that can take some of the burden off of you.  With services like delivery, and the ability to order chafing dishes, tables, chairs, linens etc. the experts at BRQ are there to handle the details so you can enjoy the game.

So whether you are gearing up for high school football, the Tigers or Jags, or even the Saints, don’t forget to include a new flavor with your tailgate this season.
