Let Us Cook for Your Holiday Party

Holiday Chicken

We all love a good holiday party. However, the things we look forward to the most when attending one, or even hosting one, are the food and the drinks. It can get stressful to plan a menu, search for ingredients at the supermarket, spend hours in the kitchen cooking and cleaning it, to also have to prep the house, yourself, and have the energy to host all of your guests. Sounds exactly what holiday nightmares are made of, right?


That’s where we step in to rescue you! Have more time to decorate while enjoying a glass of wine and holiday tunes. Transform yourself into the queen/king of the party with time to spare. Have the energy and the spirits to greet and host to your heart’s content all night long without ever worrying that your guests are going to go hungry. This is all possible when you order from our holiday-to-go menu!

Holiday Cornbread

Our holiday menu is filled with delicious classic American dishes, sides, and desserts that everyone will enjoy. You are able to order a full meal that includes a full turkey or 2 roasted chickens alongside 3 sides, cornbread, gravy, and cranberry sauce that feeds a family of four. Or you can order the various items individually from the a la carte menu to complement whatever else you have already at home. Order items like mashed potatoes, bacon macaroni and cheese, and bread pudding with Grand Marnier sauce.


What are you waiting for? Call your Stanford Grill or Copper Canyon Grill closest to you to place your order two days in advance of your event and get ready to host a memorable holiday party. This menu will be available until January 1st, 2018. We can’t wait to come home with you for the holidays!

Bread News from Stanford Grill Rockville

Bread Pumpkin Spice Roll 3

Did you know that today is Homemade Bread Day? This is the season of baked goods, warmth, and sharing these with our loved ones. We are very proud of our in-house bakery at Stanford Grill in Rockville (learn more about our bakery here!). It is there where we have our skilled Bakers make all the delicious pieces of bread you enjoy in so many of our dishes. This fall season, we have added two new additions to our bread repertoire.

Bread Chicken Sandwich

The first is a Brioche Baguette that you can enjoy in both our Crispy Chicken Sandwich and Veggie Club Sandwich. It is made with whole butter and eggs adding a comforting richness to the bread that compliments these sandwiches very well.

Bread Pumpkin Spice Roll

The second one screams fall, and it is a Pumpkin Spice Roll. Our bakery makes this seasonal treat with the use of roasted pumpkin purée, toasted pecans, and autumnal spices. All pumpkin-flavor lovers will want to come in and try it before it’s gone or try their hand at making it at home. Thanksgiving, anyone? Here is the recipe:

Host the Perfect Holiday Party

Holiday Party 3

If you have stepped foot in a mall or department store, you might have noticed that holiday season is most definitely upon us. Is that time of year to start making your gift list and getting ready to plan this year’s holiday parties. And… we got you covered on both fronts! Today, however, we are going to share the 411 on our great party spaces and other services that can make it a breeze to host your holiday party.


No matter if you are in charge of your company’s holiday gift exchange party or family’s holiday dinner, both Copper Canyon Grill and Stanford Grill restaurants have comfortable and elegant private spaces to host your shindig at. The spaces provide separation and privacy from the rest of our restaurant so you can welcome your guests and enjoy the party in a more intimate atmosphere.

Holiday Party 1

To get the space into a more festive and personalized vibe, you are able to play music, share a slideshow presentation of pictures or other information you want to share with your group, and decorate. We allow you to prepare and present the space as you envisioned for your festivity while offering you top-notch service, delicious food your guests will want to take home, and peace of mind when it comes to cleaning.


If by any chance you prefer the comfort and familiarity of your home to host a holiday soiree, we can also help you in that department. Forget the need to come up with a menu, going to the supermarket to buy ingredients, and then spending hours in the kitchen cooking and cleaning before the big event. Order from our holiday to-go menu instead! It offers a selection of main entrees, sides, desserts, etc. that will satisfy everyone’s taste buds and save you time, money, and effort.

Holiday Party 2

Ready to start planning your 2017 holiday party? Call your favorite Copper Canyon Grill or Stanford Grill in Rockville, MD to reserve your day, place an order, and get the (snow)ball rolling on this year’s holiday party. We can’t wait to be part of your holiday festivities!
