  • Picking Marcey Brownstein Catering was possibly one of the best choices we made to ensure the wedding was a success, in particular under the lead of the terrific Leslie Russell. The company was among a list of recommended caterers by our venue (632 on Hudson) and we chose it because not only knew the venue inside out and knew how to best use the space but also had the most delicious food and professional yet personable service. Leslie helped save us money on rentals by maximizing on her expertise on how to best use the venue's space and resources. In addition, their chefs went out of their way to help us develop a menu that was reflective of our different heritages (Italian and US with a touch of Mexico). They event went so far as to recreate a pasta family recipe to perfection (and satisfaction of picky Italian guests). But their service goes so beyond food - Leslie Russell lead a team of professionals who helped set up the wedding venue and coordinate ceremony and festivities logisti... Read more

  • Marcey Brownstein delivered delicious and gorgeous food and was an absolute pleasure to work with. They catered our wedding in August at 632 on Hudson. I have celiac disease and was nervous about finding a caterer who not only could provide a tasty gluten free menu, but also understand the strict requirements to avoid cross contamination. We emailed many high end caterers, and each time got response ranging from “no we cannot do a gluten free wedding” to “we can do gluten free food but we are not sure about preventing contamination”. Marcel Brownstein immediately responded that they understood exactly what we needed, and had experience catering gluten free events for celiac guests. We wanted a cocktail style party for 120 guests, and really did not want the typical chicken or fish wedding food. We are big foodies and eat mostly local, organic food. The style and quality of dishes felt like eating in your favorite local restaurant. Our venue was atypical, being a townhouse w... Read more

  • For any brides and grooms looking for an amazing caterer who makes you feel like family - look no further; Marcey Brownstein Catering is five star. Marcey, Olga, Leslie, and their staff are truly the best in their craft. From day one, they worked with us to make sure the food, cocktails, and table decor were perfect for our cocktail style wedding and within budget. They even reassured our traditional parents on multiple occasions that our non-traditional wedding style would be fabulous! Their professionalism and knowledge of not only catering, but all facets of the wedding, was always greatly appreciated and helped to put our minds at ease during the planning process. For example, although we were having a cocktail style reception, we were sold on having 8 -10 person round tables. Marcey and Olga tactfully talked us out of this idea at our tasting and explained why. Not only were we on board, but our aforementioned parents were as well. The end result was a perfect amount ...

  • I highly, highly recommend Marcey Brownstein Catering. We worked with Olga, who is an angel in my opinion. From our first conversation, I was excited to work with her. I gave her some suggestions for food I like and she nailed the menu with her initial proposal. Things only got better from there. She set up a tasting of our menu for me and my family, including potential linens and place settings (which were beautiful). The food was so delicious and I was so stuffed when I left that I couldn't eat anything else for a full 24 hours. I became even more excited for the wedding. She also took over all the coordination for the wedding day and made everything so easy for me. She was calm and always made me feel like the situation was 100% under control. She worked with all our vendors and created a timeline for the entire day. It was clear that she was a professional and that any surprises that came up wouldn't faze her in the least. I owe her a million thanks for helping me not freak out. ... Read more

  • Marcey Brownstein did a fantastic job catering our son's wedding, but it was more than catering...from the moment I contacted MB (from Atlanta) and spoke with Leslie Russell, I knew I was in good hands. I like to give myself credit for finding a good thing and knowing it. We spoke to other companies, but I didn't get the same sense of interest and commitment from them as I did from MB-right away Leslie was interested and helpful. If she didn't have an answer to a question, she'd get the answer and get right back to me. That doesn't happen very often and I really appreciated it! Leslie took a lead without taking over, always checking with me when necessary. She had great suggestions. While we knew what we didn't want, we didn't know what was possible. Leslie discussed all kinds of options with MB, we sorted through ideas and menus to create a special wedding celebration that was out of this world! The food was absolutely delicious! Our 190+ guests couldn't believe how fresh an... Read more

  • We worked with Leslie Russell from Marcey Brownstein Catering & Events for our recent wedding and could not have been more pleased! They worked with us to create a menu that was exactly what we wanted. This is especially notable given that what we wanted was food that blended two very different cultures and was sensitive to my gluten-free diet. Leslie went above and beyond to meet all of our special requests (including finding obscure beer and liquor that my groom could not live without!). The food and cocktails were absolutely delicious, beautifully presented, and wildly plentiful. Moreover, Leslie and all of the other staff were lovely and a pleasure to work with. All of our wedding guests raved about the food and drinks. We could not more highly recommend Marcey Brownstein Catering & Events for any catering needs!

  • Not only did they absolutely save our wedding after our first caterer ran into legal trouble, but they were loving, professional, responsive, and kind. The food was delicious and the day ran so smoothly. All of our guests said it was the best wedding food they ever had!

  • I cannot say enough lovely things about Leslie and her team. Leslie met with us before the wedding and answered all of our questions thoroughly. She was able to incorporate all the foods we love - including my husband's favorite Salvadoran pupusas - into the wedding food. Everything was delicious and the service was great. I thought Marcey Brownstein was the perfect choice and would work with them again without hesitation. I cannot express how helpful (and calming) Leslie was on my wedding day - she made such a difference in my ability to enjoy my own party. Highly, highly recommended.

  • We used Marcey Brownstein for our wedding on Sept 26th and it was an excellent decision. Working with Sue and her team in the lead up was always smooth, professional, and personable. Everyone at the wedding commented on how wonderful the food was, the staff did a great job, and Sue coordinated it all seamlessly. We even had a week-of-issue with the Pope's motorcade route interfering with some of our planned rental deliveries, but Sue quickly found an alternate plan and it worked out beautifully. I can't recommend them highly enough!!

  • We could not have been happier with our choice to use Marcey Brownstein catering. We did a tasting with them which was divine. They then offered to make a family recipe for one of our choices and it was incredible! The family loved having a beloved recipe and was surprised at how delicious and accurate (to the family recipe) it was! Marcey's staff was wonderful, attentive and so perfect on the big day! Her main coordinator was a dream. She accompanied us to pick out the decor as well and just made sure everything went off perfectly. And the biggest thing was : THE GUESTS LOVED THE FOOD! IT was delicious and incredible and we got so many compliments. I hope to use them again for another event, but it was the best decision we made for our weddiing. HIGHLY recommend Marcey Brownstein!

  • The quality of food and service is amazing. The whole team is wonderful. The only downside was that were weren't given a heads up that the initial rental budget provided had gone up significantly until the last-minute. I think this is likely unusual, but was very stressful. The event went wonderfully and the quality of food and service was impeccable.

  • Marcey Brownstein was great to work with. The quality of the food that they made was excellent. If you care about food quality and willing to pay for it, then this is the right caterer for you. The waiters were extremely professional and it came across as a high end experience in our opinion. We would definitely recommend this caterer, particularly to foodies.

  • Marcey Brownstein (and Sue in particular) took excellent care of us from the initial phone call, through every detail of planning, into the big night. We literally could not have done it without her. We got rave reviews on all the food and drinks, and she really helped us define and execute the wedding of our dreams. The menu was creative and delicious and we knew at the tasting that our guests would be thrilled! Sue's vast experience, particularly in our space (Ramscale Studio) was invaluable. She provided guidance but was flexible and really listened to what we wanted. Every detail was attended to. I would wholeheartedly recommend her to any of my friends!

  • We worked with Leslie from Marcey Brownstein and from proposal to the big day she was an absolute professional and was a huge help to us in pulling off a glorious wedding at Studio 450 in NYC. She also made the process really enjoyable. We loved the creativity in the menu and the fact Leslie really listened and incorporated our ideas into the proposal and final menu choices. The food/drink was a significant investment for us and something we wanted to get absolutely right as we are avid cooks at home and these guys were perfect for us. We loved everything from the hors d'oeuvres to our late night snacks .....so much of the menu was classic but there were modern twists on everything and it all looked perfect too. Leslie guided us on everything from the menu to drinks and rentals, her knowledge and experience were critical in helping us make decisions and get everything we wanted for our day. Now they are not the cheapest on the market but we decided to invest the money so we... Read more

  • Leslie was responsive from the minute we reached out about our upcoming wedding, only five months away. She was quick to follow-up during our planning process, and she has tremendous experience at the Pratt House. She was willing to customize the menu to our liking creatively. Positives: -The appetizers, soup & salad and main buffet were artistically designed. -Wells Fargo had a hard time sending our check to MB on time. We only got final confirmation of the amount due a little over a week out from the wedding, but WF still said it would arrive by its due date. Leslie and Marcey were very reasonable and friendly about dealing with this. -Our tasting was nicely laid out and was a very positive experience. -We hadn't warned Leslie we were doing a receiving line. She had waiters go into the ceremony room with appetizers as people waited in line to greet us, so our guests weren't stranded! Negatives: -MBC is not cheap. You know this going into it, but then to have to go out and bu... Read more
