Weddings at Brookshire: Family Style and Old World Style Entree Options
Here at Brookshire, we are very familiar with Family Style eating because of my Italian background. It is definitely old world style. When I was growing up, you were never allowed to leave the table until everyone was finished. That’s right: until every single person had finished! As a child, it felt like sheer agony to sit there and wait. It seemed like I was sitting at the dinner table forever. My main concern was always eating as fast as possible, so I could go back outside and carry on playing hide and seek. Now, I look back with nostalgia and really miss those days. Even now when you go to a restaurant in Italy, the waiter never asks you if you are ready for the check. They value family dining in that part of the world and love to take their time over dinner. They talk, bond, and make amazing memories over their food. Typically, dinner takes around 3 hours. It’s such a wonderful time to share the events of the day and connect with your family.
