  • From start to finish, working with Purslane for our wedding was an absolute dream. My fiance was set on having a vegetarian reception, and I was concerned about finding a caterer who could make an all vegetarian feast that would please even the most ardent meat-lovers in our extended families. Boy, did they deliver! Even better than the food (if that's possible!) was interacting with the company. Isabel was our event manager and she was amaaaaaazing. From the very first meeting I knew we were in extremely capable and organized hands. It was also great that they managed logistics for all our rentals and I didn't have to worry about how many napkins or plates, etc. I would recommend them to anyone hosting an event of any size in the greater NYC area. Purslane truly took our wedding reception dinner from being a just great meal to being a legendary meal for all our family and friends. We consider ourselves to lucky to have found them, and are so happy they came on board for our wed... Read more

  • You know when you just get that feeling in your gut and you just know something is right for you? That was the feeling we got when researching caterers and we found Purslane. Not only is their food stunning to look at but they give back to the community and are really involved in recycling and cutting down on waste. (As a former cater waiter, I can tell you that there is a lot of waste at weddings/functions.) After initially speaking with them, I had a chance to go and taste their food- it was even more delicious than it looked. They use local, fresh ingredients and you can taste the difference. Well, we pretty much booked them on the spot for our wedding. Every experience we had with them was professional, kind, and knowledgable. Once we had everything signed, we were given Isabel as our main point of contact. Isabel is a dream! We seriously can't say enough amazing things about her not only as someone to work with, but most importantly as a person. She was always there for u... Read more

  • Do you think that you have to settle for less with wedding food? This was what we were told as we began planning our wedding, and it seemed to be a truism. It simply seemed unrealistic to expect wedding food to be of the same quality as something you would choose to eat in a quality restaurant. And this truism seemed to hold up as we tried several very well reviewed and respected caterers…until Purslane. From the minute we sat down to do the tasting with them, we could tell this food was different. It was delicious! I would have happily gone to any restaurant that served the meal we had at our tasting. We decided to go with Purslane for our wedding and were completely happy with the result. Chef Arden and Isabel were warm and professional throughout the whole process, they were helpful and flexible as we planned our final menu, they were even able to accommodate an additional cocktail tasting and complicated deliveries to our venue in the Catskills, and the food at the wedd...

  • Purslane exceeded expectations in every way. From our initial interactions with Amanda, through our more rigorous coordination with Air, we were so impressed. Purslane was incredibly easy to work with, flexible, and understood our vision. Working with a caterer who could entirely conform their services to your event particulars and aesthetic was invaluable and added to the personal touches we wanted to bring to our wedding. Ari was amazing. Aside from being a lovely person, she was so organized and always calm. She was an asset during the venue walkthrough, with helpful suggestions and meticulous note taking. We loved chatting with her during our (super fun) tasting at their Greenpoint restaurant and couldn't get over the tight ship she ran on our wedding day. She was also an amazing help at the decor rental meeting -- she patiently advised and set up samples of table settings so I could picture how things would look. Arden, the chef, is such a talent -- creative and charming, his work... Read more

  • For our “leaner” wedding of thirty-five people, my then-fiance Stephanie and I had dreamt of a wedding that was centered around our family, friends, plentiful drinks, unique food, and dancing through the night. Purslane exceeded all of our hopes and the space of Fitzcarraldo not only brought home the atmosphere of a classic Brooklyn night, but the outdoor patio and distinctive interior allowed for the intimacy, mingling, and dancing that we wanted for all our friends. However, before we even got to the big night, I have to recognize the hard work and effort, especially of Chef Arden and the organization, support, and joy of Nicolette, in helping us to put it altogether. Although we had no official wedding planner, Nicolette immediately dove in to help us, listened to us, let us know all of our options, made wonderful recommendations, and - most importantly - communicated with us promptly, warmly, and consistently through the whole process. Further, both my wife and I are food-... Read more

  • Purslane catered our June Brunch wedding at Brooklyn Grange Rooftop farm and the team was an absolute joy to work with. They are professional, communicative - and importantly, serve delicious food customized to fit our family style vision. Raving reviews all around on the kale & gruyere quiche, maple - black pepper bacon, and friend chicken and biscuits, and baby buttermilk pancakes. Highly recommended!

  • Purslane catered our 9/24 wedding upstate in Kingston, NY and I cannot say enough how much we love them! The food is incredible and many people came up to me the day of (and continue to do so after the wedding) to compliment the food saying it was like eating at an awesome restaurant. And it really was that! New Yorkers bar for food is preeeetty high and they exceeded all of our expectations. Setting aside the food, they were delightful to work with leading up to the wedding (shout out Isabel and Chef Arden! The best!) and the entire staff the day of were amazing. We had requested a plate of apps to ourselves before joining cocktail party and they had them waiting for us, along with champagne and our his and her cocktails. It was a sweet moment to share with my husband to reflect on what just happened. If you want seriously delicious food, served by the sweetest crew on top of their game, book Purslane!

  • Purslane is pricy but worth it if food is the focal point of your wedding. What we loved is that we were able to work together to create a totally customized menu that reflects our taste + preferences as a couple, as well as local and in season ingredients. Chef Arden was a total pro, and everything he prepared for us at the tasting was absolutely delicious. We ended up opting for a floating style dinner for our guests, so there were constant waves of food all night long -- and it was all fantastic! I would definitely recommend Purslane to my family and friends.

  • We hired Purslane for our wedding at 501 Union 1/16/16, and everything was absolutely delicious. We worked very closely with Amanda to pick out all of our rentals (from tables to linens to glassware) and secure all of the details for our food and desserts, and we also worked very close with the Head Chef, Arden. Being able to customize everything about our menu meant a lot to us. Our hors d'oeuvres were fantastic (people were raving about the winter squash soup shooter) and the plated dinner was beyond delicious, everybody loved what their meal. Because we chose not to have a cake, we went with custom puddings and creme brulee which were huge hits. I very highly recommend hiring Purslane (with Amanda and Arden)--their responsiveness was quick, they were very accommodating, and just a pleasure to work with.
