  • Marcey Brownstein and her team (Olga, our planner) recently planned our intimate wedding and handled the catering. To say they were top notch is an understatement. In terms of event planning, we had a small wedding (~20 ppl) and they handled all aspects of the planning - rentals, florals, A/V, day-of coordination, etc. They were extremely thoughtful and detail-oriented on all accounts including nuanced safety protocol for COVID related items. The day could not have gone more smoothly and all of our guests felt extremely comfortable and taken care of. In terms of catering, we had a fully kosher event and the team served the most delicious food and provided full kosher supervision. We can't speak more highly of our experience.

  • Olga and all the staff at Marcey Brownstein Catering could not have made our day any more perfect. Olga went above and beyond to make sure the day went on without a hitch. We wanted a more casual wedding that integrated a food truck and a friend to help bartend his cocktails -- it was no problem. We asked for budget conscious menu -- it was not problem. We had some food sensitivity request -- also no problem. She contacted all our vendors to make sure they had the details of the day, she helped develop the timeline, she seriously did more than we could have asked for. We didn't hire a wedding planner but Olga made it feel like we did. We planned from out of state and it was a breeze. Everyone loved the food, drinks, and the kind, professional, and attentive staff. I cannot say enough about this company. Hire them. You won't regret it...christy + mack

  • Marcey was so creative in coming up with menu for our New Orleans themed cocktail hour and our Italian style family feast. She really took the whole event to another level. We couldn’t be more thrilled with the way things went and we had so much positive feedback from guests. Her staff was also so on top of everything from keeping our glasses full to the finest of details without every seeming to break a sweat. We highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for a top notch caterer.

  • The food was fresh, delicious, and plentiful. The staff was attentive, efficient, and so incredibly kind. Everything was executed to perfection and this was in HUGE thanks to Olga. After planning for over a year and a half, my now husband and I got married at the Foundry on August 2020. We went to a few tastings with other companies where we were very unhappy with the quality of the food, until we had our tasting with Marcey Brownstein. After a brief preliminary conversation over the phone, Olga immediately picked up on what we envisioned for our menu, and set up a tasting that was beyond our expectations. She incorporated our cultures, added fun touches, and yet still maintained the elevated elegance we wanted for our wedding. Since then she was responsive to every question and concern, and offered amazing advice along the way. She also coordinated our rentals, which was a huge help as that takes a lot of detailed planning. She was a great support system through a covid-postponement,... Read more

  • Leslie, Sue, and their team helped to make our wedding day - from initial phone conversations, to promptly answering questions throughout the planning process, to a seamless execution on the day of. Everything was fantastic - the food, service, and professionalism of the whole team! Guests left our wedding complimenting on the food (from cocktail hour through dinner and dessert!), and how friendly and professional all the staff were. I highly recommend anyone in the NYC area to use Marcey Brownstein! My husband and I are so thrilled we did, and they left a memorable mark on our wedding day!

  • Marcey Brownstein was the perfect caterer for our wedding at The Foundry. Leslie Russell (our event manager and main contact from the firm) is an expert in her craft and knows how to throw a party that our guests described as “Magical,” “The Best Ever,” and with “amazing food.” We knew Marcey Brownstein was our choice following our initial meeting with Leslie—she made us feel warm and welcomed, taking each and every desire we had about the wedding and making it come to life. The food and service provided by Marcey Brownstein are simply impeccable. She was able to make our dream Katz’s Deli Display and Raw Bar come to life during the cocktail hour, in addition to a seated dinner that was divine. It is almost too difficult to put into words how incredible Leslie and her team were on our special day. We were truly guests at our event. If you want a caterer who will not only do anything for you in making your wedding dreams come true, but also execute on it flawlessly—wor... Read more

  • We said we wanted it to feel like we were cooking for 165 people in our home... Marcey's team, especially Olga, blew us away. We served dishes like nachos (2 ways), mini pastrami & fried chicken sandwiches, scallion pancakes and farm-fresh Long Island salads. They worked to keep the cost in our comfort zone and made good recommendations along the way. We received A LOT of compliments on the food and would work with this team again. They did our sister's wedding - flawlessly (and with a completely different vibe) - too!

  • We explored several catering companies and were by far the most impressed with Marcey Brownstein. Working with Olga Svirkova from their kosher division was a true delight, she was attentive to small details, thought out of the box to make our wedding special and representative of us, she helped us create our vision every step of the way and drew upon her knowledge, experience and connections to give us an amazing wedding. For those of you who have been to a kosher wedding, Olga ensured our wedding adhered to the highest standards while also making sure people left wowed by an elegant, gentile sense that the food and ambiance were not from the old world Shtetls and Bubbies (yiddish for grandma). Olga always approached us with warmth and joy and excitement to be apart of planning our wedding. I have only heard of the storied struggles couples face planning a wedding, and after working with Olga I can tell you it need not be anything like you heard. You will be relieved and relaxed by par... Read more

  • Marcey Brownstein's phenomenal reputation exists for a reason. Working with Leslie Russell was hands down the best part of this experience. Throughout our two year planning process she was accommodating, responsive, and flexible. On the day of the wedding we did not have a thing to worry about. She was in control and made sure that all of our needs were met. Our guests could not stop raving about the food and the cocktails. Service was timely. The tagliatelle was to die for!!!! The cocktail hour was perfect and the bartenders were amazing. Leslie was one of the main reasons why the wedding went off without a hitch!

  • When we started our planning process we had NO idea what we wanted other than to get married. We fluxuated from small to big back to small guest list, said we wanted a sit down dinner then decided we were uncomfortable with it, had a color scheme scrapped the color scheme etc etc. Through it all for 2 years Leslie was patiently there for us and helped craft our non-vision in to a day that perfectly represented everything about us as a couple. From appetizers and stations that featured food from our favorite travel destinations to delicious handcrafted cocktails every detail was spectacular. All while staying in our strict budget!! As for how the food tasted - simply put a friend of ours ate meat for the first time in 10 years because all the guests wouldn't stop raving about the lamb. He said it was well worth it!! We couldn't talk about our wedding day without mentioning the flash thunderstorm during our outdoor ceremony. If it were anyone other than Leslie there with us I ... Read more

  • It’s been almost 9 months since my wedding and people are STILL talking about the food! Selecting Marcey Brownstein Catering was by far the easiest and best decision we made for our wedding. Our amazing wedding planner, Jose Rolon, recommended we check them out for our wedding in April at 26 Bridge in Dumbo. This is an empty space where you have to bring in every single thing which can be a bit daunting, but the Marcey Brownstein team worked so well with my planner to make everything perfect for us and helped to execute our vision flawlessly. We were lucky enough to work with Olga Svirkova, who was an absolute pleasure. Olga was incredibly attentive, flexible, detail oriented and so easy to work with. She consistently went above and beyond and made sure we were happy with every single detail. She even went to one of our favorite restaurants to try one of the dishes we mentioned so they could come up with something inspired by it for our wedding ! Olga completely killed it with our ...

  • We loved working with Leslie throughout the entire planning process. Her expertise goes way beyond food, and we really trusted her judgment when it came to hiring other vendors, decor, etc. Of course the food was excellent! We loved the creative menu options and appreciated the company's flexibility when it came to dietary preferences. We got so many compliments about everything, from the appetizers to the wine, and day-of we were so glad to have someone with Leslie's knowledge and experience on our team. If you are looking for food that your guests will be excited to eat, this is a great option.

  • The Marcey Brownstein team did a really fabulous job with our wedding. The food served was exactly what we wanted, and our guests are still complimenting it 5 weeks later. This was a kosher wedding, that Marcey Brownstein catered in conjunction with Simply Divine. We chose to to do it this way because we were not satisfied with the kosher catering options, and after meeting with Olga we were sure that they could pull off really creative, high quality food that "just happened to be kosher." We love to cook, as do our siblings and moms, so our standards were very high. At the tasting, we were able to give really specific feedback such as, "this needs more acid" or "can you change this from puff pastry to a spring roll wrapper." Olga made it all happen and really brought our visions to life!

  • We got married at Greenpoint Loft in Aug 2018 and worked with Olga from Marcey Brownstein to coordinate everything from food to music to rental and florals. They were amazing throughout the planning process. Completely understood our vision and really cared about making sure the day felt special while being flexible to our budget and various random requests. Our guests absolutely loved the food and felt well taken care of the whole night! We couldn't be happier. Highly recommend Olga and her team at MB!
