  • 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!

  • Marcey Brownstein Catering was recommended to us by our venue, The Foundry, and we could not have been in better hands! Olga Svirkova, our wedding coordinator was a God-send! She planned the perfect menu, answered all our questions and went above and beyond the call of duty to help us with every detail. The food was outstanding, and the service Olga and the rest of the Marcey Brownstein team provided was impeccable! Olga truly made our wedding night perfect in every way. Run, run, run to Olga and the Marcey Brownstein team!

  • As the mother of the bride with two weddings within 9 months, I have now worked with many, many vendors! We started our search with the preferred vendors of our venue, which was a bit complicated logistically. While several of the responses were fairly "cookie cutter," from the beginning, Marcey's were thoughtful and personal. Even, her earliest responses attempted to address the two different cultures of our families as well as the dietary restrictions of the bride (gluten free) and her allergy prone family! Marcey was creative and flexible and worked with us to stay within our budget....until we decided otherwise! I think I many have enjoyed the wonderful tasting dinner the most, as I then tried every single menu item, where as during the wedding I missed some of those delicious treats! The meal was delicious. Her staff was lovely and attentive and handled the complicated venue and logistics. If there were issues, I never heard about them and our guests enjoyed a magical evening in... Read more

  • Marcey Brownstein is consistently wonderful to work with. Leslie and her team are able to execute an event seamlessly each and every time. Not only is the service exceptional, the food is delicious! It's creative, fun, and hits the perfect balance between whimsical yet recognizable. It can be difficult to explain what exactly you want to offer for the meal at your wedding, but Leslie has a talent for understanding and creating a menu that reflects the couple perfectly. You are in excellent hands with Leslie and her team-- I couldn't recommend them highly enough!

  • We have worked with Leslie, from Marcey Brownstein and the team, for 2 critical milestones in our lives: our wedding reception for 150 guests and my partner’s 50tth birthday dinner. I can easily say that the quality and understated elegance of the food and service enhanced our receptions beyond any other element, and elevated it to a level none of our well heeled, discerning guests had experienced before. They are not ‘caterers’; they excel at creativity, vision and grasping the essence of the client’s idea, and go well beyond preparation and flawless execution to create the warmth, beauty and flavors to sustain any event... What is consistently amazing about Marcey Brownstein and the team--though at this stage it shouldn’t be-- is that they have ‘heard’ you and they listen before you are able to even articulate what the vision fully is, and they run with. They are great at collaboration, flexible to adapt as needed or budget dictates, and effortlessly execute at the... Read more

  • Leslie sets the industry standard for what it means to take an event from vision to execution. From our first conversation, she asked very thoughtful and important questions to get a sense of who were are, what we liked/disliked, and what we wanted to the wedding to look and feel like. She returned with a menu proposal that deeply reflected our diverse taste in food, the marriage (pun intended) of two cultures, and a variety of foods that accommodated the vast range of dietary needs of our guests. I've been to many weddings and food can be quite bland - especially when it comes from a pre-packaged menu. The personal nature of the menu not only assured it truly reflected us but also ensured that flavor and taste was not compromised. I am not exaggerating when I say the food was the highlight of the night (next to the grooms, of course!!). We are two weeks out from our big day and the one constant that folks continue to speak about is the food. In the words of one guest, "Where... Read more

  • When my now husband and I began the process of wedding planning we knew we wanted the food to really stand out and shine -this was high on our priority list. We love to cook and food is not only a huge love we share, but something that we have associated with family celebrations throughout our lives. I can not recommend Marcey Brownstein and the AMAZING Leslie Russell more. From the moment I sent an email inquiry to the tasting to finalizing the menu to the day of our wedding, leslie was by my side and assisting with any questions and needs that came up. The service is top notch and above and beyond!!! Super responsive over email, and always happy to hop on the phone, I was very pleased with the ease of planning. Leslie is the best, I couldn't have asked for more - she was more of planner than just a caterer! The food options are plentiful-and all delicious. As a couple we frequent a ton of NYC restaurants and MBC offers high end restaurant-quality food and presentation in a 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

  • 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
