Sushi Nation
Ottimo second location is supposed to open any day now on New Hampshire. It'll cater to the lunch clientele. Don't know if it'll have a different name.
Eat a Pita
Pita Hut 3 locations

Best option for inexpensive sheva brachos catering? Either in-house or drop off...

Besides for "there are still some good people in the world", I believe r&s is the cheapest. Glatt bite is a good relatively inexpensive option with a nice Simcha room.

Best option for inexpensive sheva brachos catering? Either in-house or drop off...
There is some discussion of that beginning here:

Trying to figure out all options of places to make a Sheva Brachos in Lakewood. What am I missing? I don't want to deal with more than one person(Hall, caterer, waiters) I want a one stop shop.
Estreia
D-lux
Glatt Ambiance
Ottimo
Westgate Pizza Place
Circa
Does Yapchick still do private events?




Also, both Shloimy's and Simcha caterers have a "simcha in a box" option. I have recently done some research on this myself and some results are below:

Prime 95 $32pp+18% gratuity=$38 min 30
Glatt Bite $38 pp min 40
Dlux $37.50 pp min35
Yapchik $35 pp +250 min 40

Milchigs:
Pizza Place $35pp min 40       buffet style-pay for food minimum $450 plus I think $100 for room
Circa $30pp+80 min 45
Out to Lunch $35pp min 40
Ottimo $40pp min 30 or $35 pp min 40
Greenhouse Cafe $35pp min 30         Buffet $29.30 min 30
Kava $38pp min 30      Buffet $30 min 30

Glatt bite is always consistent food is solid
Entree is well priced and the food is always great
Bunn has some solid options the appetizers are good as are the burgers
Glatt bite=fast food
Entree=full on proper restaurant.
Bunn=still not sure, but amazing eggrolls.

Dlux is a slightly more expensive and not as good glatt bite.
Prime95 is a proper restaurant more expensive than Entree and arguably not as good
Sushi nation is amazing sushi and everything is buy 2 get 1 free, so pricing comes out good.

IMHO The two are diffent types. Prime 95 is a more upper class style of food but not lower quality of it while Entree is a lower style but a better job of it.
