Banquet and Catering, Honorable Mention
The Ohio Union Griffin Ballroom, Columbus, Ohio
Specifying Team: Larry Moore, associate director, Ohio Union Griffin Ballroom; Patrick Ionno, food and beverage manager, Ohio Union Griffin Ballroom; Roger Garland, executive chef, Ohio Union Griffin Ballroom; John Sweeney, dealer sales rep, The Wasserstrom Company; Steve Castle, territory manager, Top O The Table
China: Oneida (Gemini, Ceramicor) and Anchor Hocking
Flatware: Oneida (Etage)
Glassware: Anchor Hocking (New Orleans, Florentine)
Accessories: Oneida (Holloware patterns include Stiletto, Noblesse, New Rim), Thermos (tall carafe) and Isinglass (banquet presentation items)
Worth Mentioning: Tabletop layout is not too crowded, which is often the case for banquet tables. The stainless steel cube riser fits well but guests can still see around it. Our judges also feel the silverware stands nicely on its own and is complemented by the platinum on the plateware.
