Sarofsky prides itself on our family style Friday lunches, but it’s always a special treat when Office Manager, Buffie Wixon cooks. Yes, from scratch! She’s our blonde Barefoot Contessa (except she wears shoes…) and the office lives for her full spreads, appetizers and snacks. In the words of designer / animator Josh Smiertka:

“Buffie could give us a bowl of melted velveeta and it’d probably still be the best lunch I’ve ever had.”

We took a poll, and here are our top 10 favorite Buffie specials:

10. Baked Potato Bar with Chili: Keep your basic potato toppings, we prefer homemade chili to top off a classic comfort food (basic toppings also available).

9. Brussel Sprouts with Balsamic Reduction*: Nobody will roast brussel sprouts to this level of perfection, nobody.

8. Cook Outs: Burgers, Beyond Meat Burgers*, Turkey Burgers and all the gourmet toppings your heart desires. Fire up the grill and forget all about your lame Fourth of July parties, they’ve got nothin’ on grill-master Buff.

7. Bruschetta*: Because sometimes we feel fancy (and we know we have mouth wash in the bathroom for our garlic breath)!

6. Caramelized Onion Dip: … And we know we have mouth wash in the bathroom for our onion breath.

5. Mac and Cheese *: Melted cheese that will melt. your. heart.

4. Pasole:  ¡Viva la Buffie!

3. Taco Bar feat. Carne Asada: Her California roots shine through on this build-your-own taco bar that is as muy caliente as her.

2. Grilled Cheese Bar with Tomato Basil Soup*: The classic combo that required buying 9lbs of tomatoes and all of the basil plants at Trader Joe’s (thanks Kelsey!).

1. Manicotti*:  Astounded to find out Buffie has no Italian roots… because this Manicotti will transport your mind, body, and soul to the heart of Italy… or leave you comatose on the couch in the edit suite. Also available vegan with a homemade (obviously) cashew nut cheese and spinach for our animal loving crew. It’s easy to see why this dish is numero uno with the team.

*Available Vegan because she’s that damn good.

We <3 you Buff! 


Hopefully you’ll get the chance to join us for a Sarofsky family lunch and finally know what your life has been missing.
