One-plate wondersThe Breakers Palm Beach ( has created one-plate meals -- complete with appetizer, entrée and dessert -- specifically for time-strapped banquet events. Since portions are smaller and less wait staff are needed, the option can shave up to 20 percent off the F&B bill. The one-plate meals also make great options for banquets with speakers, as they allow guests to enjoy the food and the program uninterrupted.
