27 Hors D’Oeuvres

Cocktail hour might be the best part of any event, food-wise. When else can you catch up with friends old and new while being elegantly served an array of exquisitely crafted appetizers? At Capers, each hors d’oeuvre is created to entice partygoers with unique, artistic presentation and delight them with a complete flavor experience. Our menu is vast, and we always love the challenge of creating something new that’s uniquely you.

As we recommend selecting six to eight hors d’oeuvres for a one-hour cocktail event—and ideally offering selections from farm, sea, and garden—we invite you to feast your eyes on the following sampling of 27 crowd-favorites… (And there’s so much more where this came from.)
