FANWOOD/SCOTCH PLAINS, NJ -- In time for holiday gatherings and other upcoming events, The Fanwood Grille (34 South Martine Ave., Fanwood) has introduced a catering menu that includes continental breakfast and full breakfast options, as well as appetizers, lunch and dinner items.

"I found that many of the catering menus in the area had extravagant food with expensive prices to match," said Paul Watterson, executive chef of The Fanwood Grille. "We've put together a wide range of options and competitive prices for anyone who wants to plan a gathering but doesn't have the time or interest in cooking it themselves."

Selections include the Grille's signature items, including the eatery's legendary lobster rolls, New Orleans Chicken Gumbo, Maryland Lump Crab Cakes, falafel, quesadillas (cheese, chicken, veggie, pulled pork), Five Cheese Mac & Cheese, Swedish meatballs, and a wide variety of quiches (cheese, spinach, broccoli, ham & cheese or crab meat).
