The Perfect College Formal Dinner Is Takeout

It’s that time of year again. Formal season is here and it’s the ultimate welcome back to school. You need an outfit, a date, and time to get ready, so sometimes dinner plans get put on the back burner. Delivery can help! It’s a great way to make sure everyone is included, you can order your favorite food and host the ultimate pre-formal experience at your dorm, house, or apartment. Here are some of the best foods to order for formal dinner.

It’s easy to order for a large group of people and who doesn’t love pizza! Mix and match with veggies, meats, and cheese pizzas. Have gluten free friends or health-conscious guests? Check out pizzerias that have gluten free dough and add some salads (Caesar, Greek!) to give your group more options.

If you accidentally invited more people than you have seats for, finger food is a great way to make sure everyone still gets something to eat. We suggest adding some vegetarian rolls, edamame, or scallion pancakes in case someone doesn’t eat fish.

Spice up your formal dinner with the food that’s guaranteed to put you in a festive mood for the night. Make your formal dinner a fiesta and choose Mexican. Get the party started by ordering up a spread of tacos, guacamole + salsas.
