  • Drew & his staff catered my daughter in laws bridal shower and I can't say enough about our wonderful experience. The food was both delicious & presented beautifully, Drew fulfilled every wish with passed appetizers, some favorites were chicken & waffles, london broil crostini's and tempura shrimp to name a few, than displayed Covid friendly appetizers which were amazing, individual veggie cups & skewers tomato, mozzarella, basil. Also provided us with hot chaffing dishes of penne vodka, delicious salmon and chicken francais. Every dish was equally great, everyone raved for weeks about the food & wonderful service from the staff he brought. This is the second big party they have catered for us and we will be using them again! Highly recommend for any occasion, awesome to work with!!

  • The Fruited Plain did a fantastic job catering our daughter’s backyard wedding for a very reasonable price. As a worrywart, perfectionist, and former restaurateur, I have high standards and The Fruited Plain exceeded my expectations, allowing me the freedom to enjoy the special day. The food was delicious and well-presented, the staff was friendly and professional, and the set-up/clean-up was quick and efficient. From the beginning, Drew, the owner, listened to our ideas and was receptive to our concerns. He made covid safety suggestions and his team implemented protective practices. Drew also arrived early in the day to scout the lay of the land, provided everything needed plus extra serving equipment at no additional cost, and crafted a well-planned non-dairy, gluten-free and nut-free menu so that all could enjoy. The catering staff of servers and chef were polished professionals and downright sweet. From drinks & passed hors d’oeuvres to coffee & cake, these experts went abov... Read more

  • This was the best experience I had with a vendor for my cozy backyard wedding. Drew and his team were nothing but professional. Drew was amazing. He was kind and extremely attentive to detail, the food was beyond awesome, and all the guests could not stop raving about our menu! His staff cleaned everything, set up everything, and left the place how they found it. I recommend a tasting if you can, you’ll be blown away! Lamb chops all the way!!

  • Another wonderful experience working with Drew. We used the Fruited Plains for both of my daughters’ weddings and could not have been more happy with that decision. Drew was so easy to work with. He structured our menu to accommodate our theme. The day of the wedding his staff could not have been more attentive. Obviously I used him twice and would use him again if I had another child getting married.

  • What did it take for our small wedding reception to be completely worry-free? Drew and The Fruited Plain Caterers! Having an outdoor wedding reception on October 19 on our back deck could have been "hit or miss" because of the uncertainty of the weather. But Drew connected us with the right rental company and the heated tent was AMAZING!!! With 25% of our guests being vegetarians we needed a caterer who could deliver deliciousness to all our guests. Drew totally hit it! We opted for a family style luncheon and got raving reviews on the quality of the food. From the first contact email 12 months ago, to the last dish put away on wedding day, we felt we were in great hands with a consummate professional. Drew was flexible enough to accommodate some of our special requests, and because we were dealing with the company owner, decision-making was straight forward. His servers were professional, efficient and friendly. My kitchen was probably cleaner after they left than it was bef... Read more

  • Drew and team put together an unforgettable experience for my sister's wedding earlier this summer - between the coordination and preparation for 200 people, to the flawless execution of delivering delishious, hot meals with unbelievable flavors, Drew and his team were a 10/10. I attended nearly one dozen weddings this past summer / fall, and the food and flavors (from the apps to the main courses) from Drew's team were the best. I would recommend Drew and his team to anyone looking for a top quality wedding catering service.

    Thank you! I may not have been on the dance floor that night, But for sure I had a blast. Best of luck

  • Working with Drew and the Fruited Plain was the best decision of my entire wedding day!!! They were super professional, SUPER delicious, and thorough from start to finish. They even accommodated several tastings for my very particular wife (ha!). Every guest at the wedding RAVED about the food which I feel is hard to come by. Thank you TFP for the best wedding food & coordination ever!!! The staff, the food, the process was nothing short of perfection.

  • Drew and his team made our wedding day spectacular! He went above and beyond to suit all of our needs and wishes. His staff was extremely friendly and professional. We did not have a single second where we felt like our guests weren't taken care of. The food exceeded all of our expectations and more. Drew made sure that we felt comfortable with our choices before the big day too. He accommodated multiple tastings to ensure that we were happy. The bartenders were also amazing. We gave them our recipes and with no questions asked they made them come to life. People could not stop talking about the drinks all night! I highly recommend The fruited Plain team! They will not disappoint

  • The Fruited Plain team is everything you could hope for in a caterer. UNIQUE MENU: They crafted the most scrumptious and distinctive menu I have ever seen for a wedding. So much time and effort was put into the menu that truly stood out against all other weddings. DELICIOUS FOOD: I can't say enough about how tasty the food was. Fruited Plain uses high quality ingredients which makes the food so incredible! They are masters at their craft. Our guests are still raving about the food a month later. Several people have already booked Fruited Plain for other engagements! IMPECCABLE SERVICE: Drew was a logistics wizard and planned everything with such ease. He handled all our rentals for our wedding at The Frelinghuysen Arboretum which took so much stress off our plate. The staff Drew brought on site were the most friendly, helpful and fun people to work with. Our guests loved them and we felt so taken care of! Drew was very responsive, knowledgeable, professional and so much fun to work... Read more

  • Drew was amazing. I don't know how else to put it! We met with a bunch of different caterers and everything with The Fruited Plain felt different from the start. We enjoyed every aspect of the process and Drew was so helpful along the way. Nothing ever seemed to overwhelm him, and he was so great at helping to calm us down when we were feeling stressed. He is a true professional and master of his craft. He also worked with the rental company to supply EVERYTHING we needed for our venue. I can't tell you what it was like to have that support! On the day of the wedding, I remember seeing Drew after our first look, and it was genuinely like seeing a friend at our wedding. We were just happy to see him and glad he was there. The entire team was helpful, friendly and professional. Now...the important part....the food. Ohhhhh yeah. So good. The cocktail hour was amazing. Drew and his team concoct such delicious, and unique, food options that we had a hard time selecting!!! We went w... Read more
