Before, Chef Katsuji Tanabe made it big, MCCN met him at the Taste of Mexico Event in Los Angeles back in 2012. Not only did he dazzle us but he dazzled everyone causing long lines with word of mouth.
Chef Tanabe, was born in Mexico to a Japanese father and Mexican mother. If not being unique was not enough, he brought creativity to his cuisine mastering Kosher Mexican. The charming and talented chef would eventually go on to win the bragging rights of Top Chef on the Bravo competition.
He’s closed the doors to his Los Angeles establishment and set up shop at 100 W. 83rd in Manhattan, NY. He also helms a restaurant in Chicago called Barrio at the corner of Clark and Kenzie.

It All Depends on the Party
(Top Chef Wedding Shower Photo)
What bridal shower food you serve will largely depend on the type of party you’re throwing and the time of day the party is being held.
If you’re throwing the bridal shower at a ritzy restaurant at dinnertime, of course dinner is going to be expected. However, if you’re throwing the party at your home in between lunch and dinner, finger foods should do just fine.
When Dinner Is Called For
If you are throwing a party and the time of day calls for dinner or lunch, chicken dishes are usually inexpensive and easy bridal shower food dishes to prepare. However, it’s always a good idea to give the guests a choice from at least two main courses.
Fun Finger Foods
If finger foods are enough to suffice, try mixing it up. Finger sandwiches are a given. Almost every bridal shower party that serves bridal shower food has finger sandwiches.
Try to liven it up by serving sushi or other exotic delicacies. The more unique the bridal shower food menu, the more memorable the party will be.
Cake is a must – there’s no two ways around it. However, try having a dessert table in addition to the bridal shower cake. Having an array of sweets in your bridal shower food lineup is sure to impress those with a sweet tooth.
No matter what bridal shower food you serve at your wedding, as long as there’s a variety of choices to suite everyone’s varying tastes, the menu should be a hit.
