Catering Policies and Procedures Show more The NYU School of Law is proud of its reputation for hosting quality events. Therefore, the Office of Hospitality and Food Services must provide any catering in Law School Facilities. With the exception of classrooms, no outside food may be brought in at any time. If outside food is brought in, you must pay an additional fee of 45% of your outside food bill as well as a $150 cleaning fee if not cleaned properly. In order to fulfill our pledge of excellent food service to you, we have outlined the following requirements: Requests for catering and room set up must be provided to the Hospitality and Food Services office by the Monday of the week prior to the event. Menus and set up requirements are distributed to the chef and building staff on Wednesday afternoon for the following week. Your cooperation with this deadline is necessary and is very much appreciated in order to ensure that all your expectations are met. A guaranteed minimum number of guests is required three business days prior to each catered event. This number will be the guarantee for which the Chef will order and on which all charges are based. No decrease in number will be accepted within three working days of the catered event. 100% of guest count must be guaranteed for beverages AND food. Catering Guarantee Show more Final Guarantee - At 12 noon, 5 business days prior to your event, you are guaranteed to pay for the items listed. Any changes to the details of the event (i.e. number of covers for food and beverage, service, flowers and rentals) must be given to the Office of Hospitality and Food Services before this deadline or else the expected count will serve as the guarantee. Changes after the deadline are subject to a 45% surcharge and/or additional delivery charge. Billing Policy Payment is due within 30 days of receiving final event invoice.
