  • My husband and I just got married this past 4th of July and Simply Gourmet catered our entire 145 person barn wedding. They were AMAZING! Mike worked on the menu with us to make it exactly what we wanted. Mac and cheese and Philly cheese steak stations, steak kebabs, exquisite salmon, salads, fresh grilled veggies...and he even rented blenders to do a specialty milkshake for dessert! Mike is super buttoned up...by far the most organized and responsive caterer (and we had met and spoken to a lot of caterers...Mike and his team blew us away). But beyond everything running smoothly, the food was AMAZING! Mike went to the highly-acclaimed Culinary Institute in New Hyde Park and his food is outstanding. I kid you not, I had at least 40 people come up to me the night of the wedding and tell me this was the best food they had ever had at a wedding. People that don't even like mac and cheese said they had seconds! It was great. The other great thing about Mike and his crew is that they co... Read more

  • My wedding was this past September 2013, and we could not have picked a better, more professional caterer than Simply Gourmet! Mike the owner and master chef, consistently went above and beyond to make our special day stress free and perfect, not forgetting a single detail or request. From the very beginning trust was undoubtedly there, which made our experience smooth and easy. Being 7mo pregnant and stressed to the max, Mike would put all my anxieties at ease on a weekly, if not daily basis. His tireless and professional work ethic reflected on his entire work and waitstaff, as they went above and beyond for all of my guests. And lets just say, they are not an easy crowd to please! My venue was put together exactly, if not better than I could have ever imagined that I actually cried when I first saw it. Can't say enough wonderful things about Simply Gourmet!!! I would highly recommend this TOP NOTCH caterer for any occasion.

  • Mike and his team really took care of us and made the most fabulous food for our wedding. We love BBQ so we knew we wanted some upscale BBQ and a buffet which fit our venue perfectly. All the food and drinks were outstanding, our guests raved and raved about it and I still dream of the butterscotch cookies and mac & cheese. There was an issue when one of the rental ovens broke and Mike took care of it behind the scenes with the guests being none the wiser. His staff is wonderful as well, attentive with out being in your face, smiling and so friendly. People raved about how amazing our wedding was and I would highly recommend them to others. I also really appreciated communicating with Mike prior to the day, he was always always on top of everything and quick to respond with suggestions etc. Thanks again Simply Team!

  • Simply Gourmet catered our wedding a little over a year ago and I can't say enough about the amazing job Mike and his crew did. We first met Mike at our tasting and he was extremely pleasant and professional, just a fun guy to work with. We told him what we wanted as our theme (Italian, Autumn, that kind of stuff) and he came up with some great suggestions to start. His butternut squash soup and mushroom risotto in particular ended up being fantastic. But the best part was when we told Mike that we wanted to incorporate a couple of authentic Korean dishes into the cocktail hour (my husband and I are Korean-American). He said he had never made Korean food for something on this scale before, but he would give it a try. So we brought a small bowl of Budae Jigae (a Korean soup/stew) from NYC and gave it to him. A week later we went back to Simply Gourmet and he had us try his version. My husband tried a spoonful and then gave me the bowl. A few minutes later Mike and my husband looked a... Read more

  • There is no better food or service than Simply Gourmet! If you want a wedding that is truly unique and catered TO YOU, this is it. Mike, the head chef, worked with us on every single detail from the menu to the linens and right down to the silverware. He put my mind at ease throughout the planning process and accommodated every one of my wacky special requests while working within our budget. On our wedding day, Simply Gourmet's staff was professional and courteous, ensuring everything was perfect from the service of the meal to the presentation of the favors. Patti, the maitre d, is fabulous!! She made sure my husband and I had drinks in hand and were never hungry. Not to mention, Mike's food is AMAZING!! Family and friends have not stopped raving about cocktail hour (THERE WAS SO MUCH FOOD!!!) , or Mike's mac and cheese. Simply Gourmet is now my whole family's go-to caterer for all special events. We have since used them for two bridal showers, Thanksgiving dinner, and a holiday part... Read more
