To feed the likes of Sumner Redstone, Mel Karmazin and other Viacom bigwigs in the V.I.P. area at the MTV Video Music Awards at Radio City Music Hall, The Catering Company served a buffet with sushi, oysters on the half shell, Florida lobster tails, and chargrilled New York strip steak on garlic croustades with b?arnaise, frizzled leeks and roasted tomato chutney.

Passed drinks included cosmopolitans with sugar-crusted rims, green apple martinis and champagne. Other nibblies served on square Asian-inspired trays included homemade potato crisps and a selection of tapas including roulades of chicken stuffed with spinach, roasted tomato and nicoise olive tarts, and wild mushroom and ricotta pizettes.

Celebrity presenters and performers were served much of the same fare backstage in the greenroom, with dim sum replacing the oysters and lobster.
