  • 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

  • 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.

  • We met seriously with 5 different caterers and had reached out to many more for quotes. Our experience was that some caterers were either rushing you into the contract and would not provide a tasting prior to contract signed (how could I possible sign something without knowing if you'll deliver the goods??) while other caterers wanted to curtail you into using their preestablished menus. One thing was for certain: I absolutely did not want another boring steak, chicken or fish sit down dinner. What a bore! Olga at Marcey Brownstein delivered the goods. She listened to what we wanted every step of the way, never making me feel like I was a bridezilla even when I demanded cocktail service for the whole reception and even when she accompanied us to Broadway Rentals show room and I struggled for an hour picking out linens. She will be there for you every step of the way supporting you through decisions, providing helpful tips and advice, and waiting patiently for your instructions. She m... Read more

  • From start to finish, a delicious and unique dining experience wouldn’t have been possible without Marcey’s flexibility during the planning process. Seamlessly integrating a family-style serving at our request, custom cocktails and non-traditional desserts - Marcey helped us shape our dinner into something people talked about the morning after. With a deep bench of menu options, we appreciated Marcey talking us through how dishes could work together or be approached differently. Having bases in NYC and Hudson Valley meant that Marcey could easily attend in-person meetings at the venue or with our planner - a huge plus for anyone looking to get married upstate. The moment we knew our guests would be in for a treat was right after our ceremony. Before cocktails started, and almost immediately, Marcey’s team greeted us with both of our custom cocktails and a full plate of all the appetizers being passed to our guests. That special gesture set the tone for our evening and we felt ... Read more

  • Picking a caterer wasn't an easy task for us -- we called several different ones, went back and forth a bunch, and sweated the budget a bunch. Everyone we spoke to offered the usual services but something about Marcey Brownstein stood out. Leslie, our point of contact, was willing to work with us and I mean *really* work with us. She heard us out, worked to understand what we had in mind for our big day and ended up being our most important vendor. Her expertise and great attitude came a long way in helping us get through the endless amount of planning. I could go on longer here but the important point is that Leslie and co. were professional, easy to work with, flexible, and respected what we wanted. They delivered our dream wedding. Now on to the food and the day of: so much to say but I'll try to keep it short. First of all, the staff working at our event were TOP NOTCH. So [email protected]#king nice. Seriously, I wish we could be friends. All of our guests commented at how amazing the service... Read more

  • I had a barn wedding in the Catskills. I needed Kosher-style for about 200 people. Marcey created a perfect menu of fresh, seasonal food, much of which was cooked on-site. She created adorable passed hors d'oeuvres (mini lamb burgers, mini chicken and waffles, etc) and elegant main courses with family-style vegetarian elements. The food was delicious and looked beautiful. The servers were superb, super-friendly and incredibly efficient. Bartenders were amazing; everyone loved them. Marcey worked with all of my vendors, made great recommendations, and was able to perfectly bring to life my total dream wedding. Highly Recommended.

  • I cannot recommend Marcey Brownstein Catering & Events enough! Marcey and her team catered my 165 person wedding at the Foundry in New York in August 2017 and they were AMAZING. Amazing from start to finish, in every aspect. I worked with Olga and she is awesome - she completely understands food and drinks and weddings, and within very little time understood what we wanted for our wedding and made it happen. Olga has amazing taste, great attention to detail and a reassuring calm authority - I loved all of her help leading up to the wedding and felt so confident knowing that she was running such an important piece of the wedding on the day of. Olga and her team created a completely custom food, drink and dessert menu to fit our taste and event. And every single item was delicious. And I don't mean delicious for wedding food, actually delicious. The number of compliments we received on our catering was crazy! And it wasn't just the food that was great - the dish combinations were crea... Read more

  • We used Marcy Brownstein for our wedding at Bedell Cellars in July 2017. From the minute I began corresponding with Leslie about my menu, I knew that I was using them for my big day. The entire menu was customized to my husband and I. We could not be happier. Leslie held a tasting that was unforgettable. Their food is beyond 5 stars- my entire guest list is raving about all of the items. Working with Leslie was easy- she helped us pick table settings and the day was fluid. She truly set up my dream wedding! I couldn't be happier with Leslie and her crew- they were absolutely AMAZING!

  • 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 worked with Olga at Marcey Brownstein and sincerely could not have been more impressed. It was such an amazing experience! As some background, my fiance and I had our wedding plans turned upside down when our venue in Jersey City called us 3 weeks before our wedding date to tell us they were closing unexpectedly... That said, we had to replan our entire wedding in less than a month. Our original venue was providing the food in-house, so we had to find a caterer from scratch. Our new venue (The Foundry in Long Island City) highly recommended Marcey Brownstein, among a handful of other vendors. Many of the caterers were in the same ballpark on price and the quality/creativity of the menu... our decision purely came down to Olga. She was amazing! Incredibly responsive (never took more than 10 minutes to respond to one of 10 dozen emails we sent her), professional, and really went the extra mile in all facets of the event. She legitimately became our event planner, coordinating with all... Read more

  • We were so glad that we hired Marcey Brownstein, and particularly their event planner, Leslie Russell for our wedding at 632 on Hudson in June 2017. Neither of us felt a moment of anxiety or a need to ever raise our voice or look at each other in panic, mostly because we kept telling ourselves and each other, "Don't worry, Leslie will handle it." We needed a kosher wedding serving only dairy and fish to satisfy various factions and virtually no caterers showed any interest in coming up with a creative menu based on that theme, but Leslie jumped on it immediately and delivered a range of appetizers and main courses that satisfied everyone from picky New Yorkers to our older relatives. Our wedding was exactly what we had imagined -- a fun townhouse party where everyone got to wander around the beautiful house we could never afford while enjoying food they had no idea was kosher. Everyone commented on how seamless the service was and how friendly the staff were. Even my mother... Read more
