Q:  What if my guest count goes up or down?

A:  For your safety, food that is heated or cooled and is out over 4 hours, must be discarded.  Food held at room temperature must be discarded after 2 hours.  In all other cases, you are welcome to bring your own containers to take food home in.  We ask that you talk to one of our food professionals first to ensure the food is safe.
