What You'll Get
Feeding many people at once can be a challenge that may result in the host accidentally setting tables with broken-off Barbie–doll arms instead of salad forks. Pass the burden of entertaining into capable hands with today’s Groupon: for $745, you get a wedding-catering package, which includes a $1,000 credit toward any catering menu, a 12-item tasting menu for up to four people (a $125 value), flatware rental for up to 75 guests (a $440.25 value), and a personalized, engraved package of dining items (a $175 value) from Fig Tree Cafe. The wedding package is valid at a venue of your choice in San Diego county, though the venue rental is not included with this Groupon.
Fig Tree Cafe’s creative fare is crafted from a host of organic and locally grown ingredients, and can be enlisted to fill empty dining tables at events by calling upon the restaurant's catering services. Appetizers, such as sticked greek salad or bacon-wrapped dates, pique guests' culinary curiosity before savory entrees including stuffed chicken medallions and edible shots of sucrose, such as crème brulee and key lime pie, fly into diners' yawning mouths. To ensure each dish satisfies the tastes of every single tongue at the party, up to four people may partake in a 12-item tasting menu. Fig Tree Cafe also provides flatware rental, allowing guests to dine without resorting to fashioning skewers from fallen branches, and leaves behind a personalized and engraved set of champagne glasses, serving knives, and more festooned with a double-ring motif.

About Fig Tree Café
At a young age, Alberto Morreale decided on a career as a chef, leaving his Sicilian hometown to cook in restaurants across northern Italy. After moving to San Diego, he started synthesizing Californian influences with his Old World culinary techniques, creating dishes such as his housemade lobster ravioli with chipotle-mascarpone-cilantro sauce and a dollop of tequila.
Chef Morreale’s use of local ingredients in his creative recipes adds to the freshness of dishes at both Fig Tree Café locations—winning the Hillcrest café second place in CityVoter’s Best Brunch category in 2011. The two cafés bake their breads in house, grow their own sprigs of rosemary, and catch their own silverware in a clear mountain stream. The kitchen sources ingredients from area producers, such as a ranch 35 miles outside of town, which supplies the restaurant with natural, free-range eggs.
