Citytv keeps crawling back for more of this caterer's outre feasts. That's partly because of Stuart & Saladino's edgy ethnic-mosaic menus. Feeding a famished sea of demanding media mouths doesn't daunt owner Barbara Stuart-Peterson and Chef Randall Harrison (she'll brainstorm fashion-forward ideas, he'll execute them). For the MuchMusic Video Awards (serving 4,000 people) and the Citytv Festival of Schmooze (for 3,500) last September, S&S dreamt up an eclectic chain of food stations. The Moroccan Grill showcased a couscous-crusted pumpkin dish with carrot satays; the latke bar was stocked with a range of Ashkenazi treats, including a sweet-potato latke with caramelized apples and sour cream; the Japanese bowls station (located on Moses' boardroom table) unveiled a tonkatsu chicken with scallions and lemon grass. Stuart & Saladino's so-called hot rocks station will take you back to Bedrock: grilled salmon skewers with lemon and soy glaze sizzle on slabs of slate. Poultry loyalists take heart: Harrison and Stuart-Peterson also confess to a great love of the classics; they make a fine roast chicken.
