We are bringing #familytogether with family-style dining. It doesn’t matter what exactly there is to celebrate, people are finding any excuse to gather ‘round one table again. Patrons are rediscovering the benefits of family-style restaurants, and brunch is the way to go. In community-oriented cultures like ours, people are longing to take a moment and reconnect with one another. The best way to do that has always been by sharing delicious food with a happy hour and the social artform of good conversation. Throw in some music and a chill atmosphere, and you’ve got yourself one spicy party!
A fiesta doesn’t always have to revolve around the number of guests, but the quality of people and of course, the mouth-watering Mexican brunch and cool ambiance—all provided under one roof! Orale is committed to taking family-style dining to the next level with smaller group interactions. For starters, there is a huge difference between ‘sharing a meal’ and sharing food. Simply grabbing a bite to eat with friends is just not enough. However, when restaurants celebrate with family-style dining served on larger than life platters meant to share, engagement with one another reaches new heights. Plus you get to try more dishes.
Why Family-style dining? Why not?
Food may be meant to nourish our bodies and satisfy our hunger and cravings, but family and friends feed the soul for every occasion. Whether you are celebrating a milestone birthday or even a weekend happy hour, Orale creates a very relaxed, casual setting but mixed with the elements of elegance, spicy music and communal vibes. When opting for family-style dining, everyone can get a taste of their favorite dishes and go for multiple helpings, alongside the guarantee of being conversation carriers throughout the meal with our savory ethnic fusion of menu options. Orale is very focused on your family-style dining experience as we have begun to accommodate a 6-12 person guest-list with a specialty menu built for sharing and creating these memories! No occasion is too small for us to discredit the importance of any intimate group that is getting together for a birthday, anniversary, graduation, retirement, or even simply a Taco Tuesday. There is always a reason to bring family and food together and there is always room at our table!
Our Family-Dining Menus Are A Celebration All On Their Own
Orale offers 3 distinct menus for sized groups ranging anywhere from 6 to 30 guests. All of our family-style menu options are made to order by our exquisite culinary team and brought to you by our valued hospitality team.
• La Familia Menu: (Available only for 6 to 30 guests)
Served in a communal setting for the entire table to pick and share. Designed to give everyone at the table the experience of sampling some of our most sought after dishes. All selected by you, so your guests can relax and enjoy the company. All guests need to participate. No substitutions or mixing.
• La Familia Menu Combo with 2-Hour Brunch Open Bar
• El Chingon “Choice Entrée” Menu: (available only for 6 to 12 guests)
Served off a hybrid menu with the Guacamole Starter, Appetizers and Desserts all prepared and delivered family style. Guests can select only their entrée. El Chingon is only offered Saturdays & Sundays, excluding Special Days or Holidays. All guests need to participate. No substitutions or mixing allowed. Available for 2 Hour Bookings.
Many people ask if they can book a table for their larger groups without the family-style dining option. Unfortunately, if you received the email with the set menus, you could only book the group with the family-style menu. Due to our kitchen size and high volume, we have limited space to put out large groups a la carte.
Brunch for the Family: Open Brunch Bar
Orale caters to our brunch crowd. By specifically opening our booking times to everyone’s favorite form of afternoon delight, family-style brunch is the perfect way to enhance everyone’s celebration. Same menu options are available along with unique upgrades. We can do Consumption Bar or Open bar depending on the age of your group members or those participating. Open Bar is for the full party.
