  • I cannot begin to say enough about Marcey Brownstein Catering. I worked with Leslie Russell, who was wonderful from beginning to end. Here's a list of all the ways in which Leslie and her team really blew me away: 1) Having been to weddings where you either can't eat your hors d'oeuvres and hold your wine, or where you bite into something and half of it falls down your dress, I needed hors d'oeuvres that you could eat in one bite. Leslie understood this and everything we served was easy to eat. 2) The hors d'oeuvres were also AMAZING. We got comments on them all night. Everyone had a different favorite and REMEMBERED what it was - I still hear about them. Also, the fish entree at dinner got rave reviews. Delicious fish at a catered event? Who has ever heard of such a thing? Marcey Brownstein pulled it off. 3) The service was impeccable. During dinner, a line of waiters would come in, each holding two dishes, and an entire table was served at once. That attention to ... Read more

  • I would absolutely recommend Marcey Brownstein Catering for a wedding. After researching over six catering companies for our cocktail-style Brooklyn wedding, Marcey Brownstein offered a competitive price with a professional, knowledgeable, and warm attitude, which convinced us to work with their team. And they were phenomenal! In particular, it was Leslie Russell who made it happen. Despite the fact that most of our wedding planning happened a month leading up to the big day, Leslie always made us feel totally comfortable and confident that we were right on track. Everything came together beautifully, thanks to many suggestions and advice from Leslie. For instance, my mom is allergic to shellfish so we decided last minute to cut out any seafood - no biggie! Leslie had great ideas for rounding out the menu. Advice on laying out the space at The Green Building? She was on it. Recommendations for a car service? Done. Working with the Marcey Brownstein team was one of the easiest and most... Read more

  • Leslie Russell and her team truly made our wedding better than we had ever imagined. We fell in love with the food from the first tasting and agreed that it tasted like what we would order at a nice restaurant and was sooo much better than standard wedding food. Leslie was almost psychic, curating a menu for us that exactly matched what we wanted, even before she ever met us. On our wedding day, Leslie's team were so welcoming and friendly and beamed at us the whole day while wishing us well and congratulating us. Leslie herself managed to oversee the set-up and food prep and coordinate all the moving parts of the wedding while at the same time finding time to check in with me and help to calm me down before the ceremony. During the dinner, her servers presented the food so professionally that my husband(!!) and I kept pausing mid-bite to watch them put the food down on tables. They were also very attentive to everyone's needs during the meal and I even noticed that they observed o... Read more

  • What can be said about Marcey Brownstein Catering & Events and most specifically, about Marcey herself that hasn't been said already! Marcey catered my husband's 50th birthday party and truly knocked it out of the park. However when I say "catered," what I should really say is acted as the Event Planner extraordinaire. When I contacted Marcey, all I knew is that I wanted to throw a fabulous party for my husband's 50th that included all of our closest friends and family, we had to play 80s music (per my husband's request), but most importantly, that the party would be unlike most other 50th birthday parties one typically goes to in NYC . I didn't even have a venue when I contacted her. Marcey not only helped me find a venue - Ramscale studio which she told me was one of her all time favs and after visiting it, I saw why, but she also helped me create an overall 80s night that my husband and all of our guests still talk about a year later! Marcey helped me source fabulous furnitu... Read more

  • The short version: You just don't get more pro than Marcey and her team. The long version: We sampled several caterers in the NYC area, ending our tour with Marcey Brownstein, and they simply blew us away. They served us every dish that our guests would taste at our cocktail-party wedding reception, and the menu rivaled some of our favorite restaurants. Short ribs with fingerling potato salad! Grilled shrimp on rosemary skewers! Heavenly mushroom risotto! Amazing cheese and cured meats! Lemongrass gelato! It was an easy decision to go with them. They even went above and beyond to work with our budget. On the big day, the food was every bit as delicious as it had been at the tasting. Do you know how hard it is to get risotto exactly right for 85 people? It's hard for me, but no problem for Marcey's team. I know this because her excellent staff made sure I actually ate food, and that I always had a drink in hand. The entire team was delightful, and my guests even commented on how... Read more

  • Food was very important for us, and we wanted to make sure that everything we served at our wedding stood out and was truly special. Some reviews led us to Marcey Brownstein, and after speaking with Leslie we were completely sold. Leslie was a dream to work with, being both flexible and super responsive (replies to emails within the hour) and experienced enough to help guide us through the menu selection and planning process. Leslie went far above and beyond her role as catering manager, she acted as a day of event coordinator as well, helping to manage deliveries, timing of the ceremony, having her staff (who were amazing) handle coat check and corrall guests, etc etc etc. She paid attention to every little detail so we didn't have to (and even made sure we ate, which apparently lots of couples forget to do). The food. It was perfect in every way. The passed hors d'eurves were plentiful, carefully crafted, and beautifully presented. Same with the main courses. The flavors and quali... Read more

  • Marcey Brownstein Catering promised to put together a spectacular menu for our wedding and they did not disappoint! The food, drinks and service at our wedding were unparalleled and we are still hearing from our guests how much they enjoyed the food. I can say without reservation that our wedding menu was the best I've ever had at any wedding. We were disappointed however with a few logistical issues on the day of. Leslie Russell was mostly amazing to deal with, super responsive and helpful up until our wedding day, she even helped us find our florist when we were down to the wire. The only complaints we have are that the signature drink we had agreed upon at our tasting was not actually the one served at our wedding, with no explanation for the substitute. Also, our wedding venue was an unusual space which did not provide enough seating for all of our guests, who were left standing throughout the space during our ceremony. Having worked with this venue before, Leslie assured us that s... Read more

  • Working with Leslie and Marcey at Marcey Brownstein catering was the highlight of planning my wedding. Not only did they "get" the vibe of our event and provide appropriate sample menus, but it was a joy to work with them. Most importantly: the food was the best (people still gush to me about the drinks, in particular - pear ginger bellini...yum) and the service was wonderful. The only issue of which to be wary: this is not a budget caterer (though it is also not outrageous and they totally worked with us to make it work). I think we paid about $75 per person for a lunch buffet plus extra for cocktail hour, open bar, etc. The price below is so high because they took care of all our rentals, planning etc. Bottom line: loved them.
