  • 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!

  • Could not recommend Marcey Brownstein enough. Everything was amazing from start to finish. The team was extremely flexible and willing to work with us on all requests & customizations. Especially great with doing gluten free options as my husband is celiac. You will not get typical wedding food here- quality is amazing and everything tasted delicious.

  • My now-husband and I decided to hold our rehearsal dinner at Riverside Church to make it easy for guests to simply go upstairs after the rehearsal to enjoy a meal with us. We would have saved some money, had we chosen to go out to a restaurant, but it certainly would not have been as intimate or as personalized and special had we not held the event in the church (9th floor lounge) and with this caterer. Since we held the dinner at the church and with Marcey Brownstein, we were also able to hire a Mariachi Band for our private event. The church has 3 in-house caterers and we chose Marcey Brownstein since they were able to customize the menu to serve Mexican style food for our Cinco de Mayo Rehearsal Fiesta. I was in touch with Olga from the very beginning, who was always quick to respond to any inquiries or requests we had. We really could not have pulled this off without her! Planning the menu and everything with her was seamless and, in the end, we could not have chosen a better cater... Read more

  • Leslie and her team at Marcey Brownstein were fantastic. I mean very very good. She was communicative and I never felt like she didn't have time for me (which you can imagine, when working a dozen or more weddings at a time is a pretty serious feat). The food was delicious and the service disappeared into the event. I couldn't recommend them more highly.

  • We couldn't have asked for a better caterer for our wedding. We worked with Olga, who was so sweet and attentive. We had a lot of ideas for what we wanted for the food and the team at Marcey Brownstein took it all into account and created the perfect menu for us. Working with them was so enjoyable and easy. They put together a beautiful tasting for us and even included the tableware and flowers we had already picked out. We even asked them to put together a special signature cocktail to surprise my mom at the wedding and they created the perfect one. Our guests are still talking to us about how delicious the food was!

  • Leslie was an unbelievable partner in planning and executing our wedding! She made sure we had all of our questions answered and continually communicated with us with any additional information or questions we should be asking. She helped coordinate with all of our other vendors to ensure the entire event was seamless. She also had a great understanding of our unique venue at 632 on Hudson and was able to give us tips and great recommendations for other vendors. The food was fantastic - flawlessly presented and delicious. Finally, the rest of the staff was professional and efficient in taking care of our guests the entire night.

  • 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

  • I can't begin to count the number of guests (including many NYC foodies) who said that the food at our wedding was the best they had ever had at an event. Leslie worked on every detail with us to make sure we had exactly what we wanted, and was really flexible and creative with a lot of items on our menu. The end result was beautifully presented, tailored specifically to us, and absolutely delicious. Leslie was also our day of coordinator, and was there from the moment we signed with her until the day of to answer questions, give advice, and make sure everything went smoothly. A fair warning, this was the most expensive of the places we looked, but Leslie made sure to help us cut costs in other areas, and made sure we were getting the most bang for our buck. It will cost you, but if you want perfection for your service staff, rentals, food, and planning, it's worth it.

  • Words cannot begin to describe how truly grateful we are for everything Marcey Brownstein Catering did for us. Our wedding was absolutely magical and it felt right out of a fairytale. I never thought I'd be able to get married someday, and not only did I get the chance to do so, it was a wedding that was better than anything I could have ever dreamed of. My husband and I could not have done it without the help of Olga. She paid attention to every detail, was incredibly enthusiastic, and was always eager to help! She helped us guide us through the whole process and there was no way we would have been able to do it without her! Our families loved absolutely everything and so did our guests! We keep hearing about how delicious the food was, and almost everyone kept telling us how they kept going back for our signature drinks! It was truly a magical evening!

  • Choose Marcey Brownstein catering and not only will your wedding have delicious and creative food, you will have experts on your side from the beginning to help plan the flow and style of the event. Our wedding was long and complex, with two ceremonies and countless room flips all packed into one day. Leslie was incredibly knowledgable, professional and supportive during the planning process, and ensured our vision went off without a hitch. She knows The Foundry inside and out and gave us some great advice about how to make the flow work. She was respectful and understanding of our budget and helped us to stay within it while achieving what we want (though it may be worth saying, you probably get more value from this caterer if you have a higher budget). We received many compliments from our guests on the delicious food, from our afternoon tea (scones were a big hit!), cocktail hour and family-style dinner. Leslie and team accommodated multiple cultural palettes and dietary requirem... Read more

  • One of the best decisions we made when planning our wedding was booking Marcey Brownstein. My husband and I were beyond happy with the way the food, service and event turned out and our guests are still talking about how great the food was. The first thing to note is that when booking Marcey Brownstein for your wedding, you're not just getting a caterer...you're getting an experienced events team. Leslie was our lead event manager and she is the best. From the first phone call I had with Leslie, I got a sense that she was going to be a person we could trust to ensure everything would run smoothly. Throughout the planning process she was great to work with. She even exceeded our, already high, expectations the day of wedding as well. Everything was flawless. She is exactly what you want in an lead - knowledgable, receptive, reliable, fast, honest, organized, detail oriented. One of my husband and my favorite things about Marcey Brownstein is how flexible and adaptable they are to... Read more
