FALLS CHURCH, VA--(Marketwired - Oct 25, 2013) - While guests are usually the ones to bring gifts to weddings, couples find other ways to pamper their friends and family, starting with a delicious meal. At Fairview Park Marriott, a top Northern Virginia wedding venue, the newly revised catering menu features creative cuisine that offers couples a delicious way to say "thank you" to their guests.
The new events menu at this Falls Church hotel features options for every palate, from vegetarians and meat-lovers to those who are health-conscious or have food sensitivities. Hors d' oeuvres offer a range of light bites including a mascarpone, blue cheese and onion tart; black bean spring roll with cilantro lime sour cream; macadamia chicken skewer with mango marmalade; barbecue pork biscuit; smoked gouda puff with chorizo; Chesapeake crab cakes with remoulade and coconut lobster tails with passion fruit puree. Forgo the typical cocktail hour for something more modern with a Japanese sushi display, and trade in simple greens for creative salads including the panzanella with crisp romaine, tomato, cucumber, boiled egg, asparagus tips, olives, roasted red pepper and crisp bread shards. When it comes to the main course, options cater to everyone and include a Mediterranean Purse with Israeli couscous, roasted vegetables, and asiago cheese wrapped in wheat sheet dough and served with tomato olive compote; grilled filet mignon with cabernet reduction; and a Maryland crab cake with roasted corn relish.
The new menu isn't the only thing to get couples excited about hosting their big day at this Falls Church wedding venue. Those who book their event any time before December 31, 2013 can choose either double Marriott Rewards® points (up to 50,000) or 10% off standard menu pricing. With 50,000 bonus points, couples can take their dream honeymoon, purchase gifts that didn't make it on their registry or save up for a future family vacation.
