As a New England caterer specializing in mouthwatering barbecue and clambakes, we couldn’t help but share our thoughts on how food and the July 4th in New England go together, like lobster and butter. 

So, grab a cold drink, kick back, and let’s talk about why these two make the perfect pair for unforgettable gatherings!

First things first, let’s talk about the star of the show:
The 4th of July Food

Let’s start with the heartbeat of the coastal New England summer – Clambakes and Lobster Boils.

Everyone loves that moment when those plump lobsters glistening with that unmistakable red hue are pulled out of the steamer and placed on the trays, ready for cracking. 

Lobsters and clams from clambake

Our Clambakes to Travel will also contain the clams, chorizo, corn-on-the-cob, potatoes, and onions to complete the meal for your guests. 

And we know – because hundreds of people have told us so – that our golden-crusted cornbread with its real corn bits and its buttery, moist texture is irresistibly delicious.

Just the thought of it is enough to make your taste buds dance! 

Maybe Your Crowd is More Into Barbecue:

Of course, we can’t forget the classic barbecue elements. The smoky aroma of slow-cooked ribs, tender chicken, and sizzling burgers on the grill is enough to make anyone’s mouth water. 

And what’s a barbecue without all the fixings

Picture a table adorned with colorful salads, creamy coleslaw, and homemade sauces that add that extra zing to every bite. The beauty of barbecue is that it offers something for everyone.
Ensuring that even the pickiest eaters will find their bliss in this outdoor dining experience.

Is yours more of the sandwich and salad crowd?

Our sandwich selection features classics like tender pulled pork, juicy grilled chicken. We also offer savory toast beef, offered on freshly baked bulkie rolls or wrap bread.

Each sandwich is offered with a medley of delicious toppings and spreads, so that every bite is a flavor-packed delight.

One of our most popular crowd-pleasers is the RollUp Buffet. 

To complement the smoky flavors of our barbecue and clambake offerings. We offer a range of vibrant and refreshing salads.

Crisp garden greens topped with juicy tomatoes, crunchy cucumbers, and tangy dressing, or a colorful coleslaw with a creamy twist.

With a variety of potato salads and cole slaws available, your sides are covered.

We’ve found that the various pasta and noodle salads that we create are highly received such as this tortellini with tomato and basil salad.

And – of course – the cold, sweet fruit salad of summer is a non-negotiable.

These salads add a refreshing touch to the feast, balancing out the richness of the main dishes and providing a delightful contrast of textures and flavors.

What people are saying:

“The food was out of this world!! My husband was born and raised in Alabama and Georgia and he is a stickler for good BBQ. I was nervous on behalf of B&M, but he was licking his fingers and getting seconds before I even ate half my plate.”

Kristen R., Yelp Review

Amazing food and service

“I recommend B&M Catering to anyone looking for a unique and fun option for your catering service. B&M has many options for you to choose from or mix and match to make your own food choices for any event!
B&M’s food is unbelievable. We had the marinated BBQ steak tips, BBQ baby back ribs, pineapple teriyaki chicken, cornbread, Mac and cheese, garden salad, and apple crisp for dessert served buffet style. All of the food was perfectly cooked and tasted out of this world. All of our guests kept coming up to us saying how much they liked the food and at the end of the night people were lining up to take home bowls of it.
If you’re looking for a reliable catering company that will go out of their way to help make your event amazing then I recommend B & M’s Catering!
