Wonderful Italian Gelato & Pastas - Bulgarini Gelato [Thoughts + Pics]

#61

Does anyone know what Bulgarini/Guerilla/RFT want as minimums?

#62

It’s likely gone up, but here was the Guerrilla catering rundown when I inquired in 2015 (but I didn’t get the to phase of figuring out a minimum. As I recall, my emails went unanswered lulz):

The catering base rate starts at $20.00 per person and includes 3 tacos per person, service running for 2 hours, and standard utensils and plating. The $20.00 starting rate includes a choice of 3 menu items from the listing below:

Vegetarian:
* Sweet potato & Oaxacan cheese
* Celery root, fruit compote chile
* Artichokes & red pepper escabeche
* Cauliflower, dates, castleveltrano olives

Beef:
* 7bone braised beef
* Short rib
* Chile Colorado
* Rib eye

Pork:
* Chile verde pork
* Pork shoulder

Chicken:
* Mole
* Anjonjoli sesame seed tomato sauce

Fish/ seafood ($25 per person instead of $20)
* Octopus
* Shrimp

Specialty items ($27 per person instead of $20)
* Wild aji tuna
* Wild salmon ceviche
* Kampachi sashimi

I wasn’t in charge of the details, but from what understand it was $1000 to start, and then up from there.

Eh we’d probably be looking at a minimum $50pp for a guerilla/RFT/Bulgarini bang^3 event.

Doesn’t sound too awful until you realize you’re dropping $50 for 5 tacos and some gelato.

Hi @Ns1,

I just checked with a friend of a friend of mine who hired Ricky’s Fish Tacos for a party. They said it was really reasonable, something like 20 person minimum at $8 per person. But this was 2 years ago, so prices might have changed. Not bad though.

(And I was there… Ricky made his amazing Fish Tacos and Shrimp Tacos (and they tasted even better IMHO than his Taco Truck.) :slight_smile:

k, so the information is more readily available than I thought:

http://www.guerrillatacos.com/catering/

1k minimum, packages start at $25pp

RFT

There were a couple of options for ordering, either by the taco with a minimum amount required or an all-you-can-eat fish taco option requiring at least 40 people

That’s probably a minimum of $600 @ $15pp

Bulgarini, about $1k minimum per ipsedexit’s notes above.

So, cost for food alone is probably in the realm of $50pp. I’d be interested in wrapping this up as a fundraiser for my wife’s non-profit, tickets would be $75 and you can BYOB. I’d have to invite non FTC’ers to get to the #'s required to make this work.

location would be our facility in Chatsworth.

thoughts?

for reference, JL’s meetup @ Batusi was also $75pp + gratuity “at your discretion”.

Hi @Ns1,

Thanks for the sleuthing update. :slight_smile: I guess Ricky’s raised up the minimum from my friend’s party a few years ago. They had only about 25 - 30 people show up if I remember correctly. Good to know.

#71

Where were you able to get the information on Ricky’s? Have done some searching in the past but couldn’t find.

#72

That’s the googled info. I’d rather not reach out unless there’s some interest at the above listed cost.

#73

While $50 for 5 tacos and some gelato ain’t cheap, I actually think it’s fine. I mean, there all gonna be in one location! I’m interested (but preferably some time in the summer b/c the next few wks for me are gawd awful!). I also might have time to assist w/ planning during the summer…

This thread makes me feel kind of bad that I live less than three miles from Bulgarini yet only go a few times a year.

Okay so, that is a crime. My sister lives close and she says the same thing.
