BRIE cater- Catering with Passion, Service with Heart!

BRIE cater is a family owned small business that started in 2005. Brian and Mollie purchased Ollie’s Kitchen from the Werners and help them to retirement. Our company has come a long way in the last 9 years. We have made many changes including our name twice. It shows creativity to re-invent an already successful company. The wedding market is forever changing from year to year and you must be able to adapt to keep up with clients needs and vision.

Owner Brian Rubenzer and our chefs compete in competition which helps us to evolve our menu. BRIE cater has designed menus that have been proven to be successful from catering over 600 weddings. There is a saying KIS, keep it simple! Small menus that have all signature items will give your guest a memorable culinary experience with service to match.

Since we are a small business that strictly does off-site catering, our clients have our full attention which is very important for a successful wedding. Book a caterer that you feel comfortable and confident about and we hope you feel that way about BRIE! Read less

We recently used Brie Cater for our wedding at the James J Hill Reference Library and they were phenomenal! Their service was outstanding from the beginning. They gave us a wonderful tasting, were accommodating with our menu, and extremely courteous to us and our guests. Everyone raved about the food and it was much higher quality than some much more expensive vendors we also did tastings with. I would recommend them to anyone!

Planning,details,execution were all done to our satisfaction! My daughter was married in the Dominican and the reception was held at a later date in St.Paul.She wanted a Dominican feel/flavor to the food and Brian delivered! DELICIOUS,AUTHENTIC, foods were enjoyed by all! He even carved a huge fruit boat with the Dominican flag! The guests are still talking about the mouthwatering pulled pork! The servers were very professional and also butler passed yummy appetizers while guests arrived. The tables were set with lovely china and glassware and linens.Everything met my daughter and new husbands expectations! So that made me happy too!

We had excellent service, the food was terrific and the presentation was superb. They had the entire place set up and cleared up very quickly and carefully. Everyone commented on the great appetizers and great entrees. Working with their staff was truly a great experience from Brian to Justin to Ray and the entire staff that handled our wedding. They all were very professional always offering to help with things, ask questions and answer the ones we had We could not have asked for anything better because everything was perfect. We would highly recommend them for any event, they are the best. Maggie

Lettuce Cater catered our wedding on Sept. 7, 2013 at Minnetonka Orchards. We didn't want a formal, plated, sit down dinner, so Brian put together an amazing buffet of heavy appetizers for us. The food was absolutely delicious, and I got nothing but compliments on it all night long. I've continued to hear from people, almost 2 weeks later, who say things like "best food at a wedding, ever!" I think people are generally sick of the typical wedding fare of beef or chicken with some sad little veggies and mashed potatoes on the side. This buffet was spectacular, and had something for everyone! People had their plates piled high - at one point I was worried we would run out of food, but Brian assured me he had brought enough, and I think people definitely got their fill!

A couple of guest favorites were the Voodoo Shrimp (curry dusted and wrapped in bacon - my friends and coworkers will not stop talking about them!), and the beef tenderloin skewers with mushrooms and gorgonzola sauce.

It was a really hot day out at the orchard and Brian and his staff did everything they could to make our guests feel comfortable and enjoy themselves.

In addition, my sister is a pastry chef and made six (!) cakes for the reception. Brian graciously offered to store and transport the cakes for us at no extra charge. This was huge because my sister was also my only bridesmaid, and had a lot of other stuff going on that day. I have no idea how we would have gotten the cakes out there if he hadn't been wiling to do this. His staff was amazing at cutting all 6 cakes quickly and efficiently, even as the vultures were diving in to try all 6 flavors!

I'm an event planner for my job, so I know how important it is to have food your guests will love, as well as impeccable service. Lettuce Cater provided both of these things well above and beyond what I expected. Thank you so much for making our wedding so memorable for us and our guests!

I cannot say enough positive things about Lettuce Cater, right from the start they were fantastic. They were the only caterer that offered a tasting at the first meeting with them, and Brian talked directly with us to make sure we received everything we wanted. They were above and beyond any other company we talked to, including items for no extra cost (plates, silverware, coffee and water tables, cake cutting) and most other companies charge you extra for those. The food options are incredibly broad so we had a lot to choose from. They were the only caterer to actually respect and stay within our budget we set. From the beginning Lettuce Cater made the planning a positive and fun experience rather than a stressful one.

We chose a buffet style dinner, and it was gorgeous. The salad was out on a huge wooden block like a cutting board, it looked so elegant and new. I received many comments that night on how delicious the food was and heard later we had one guest go up 4 times for more :). We had the chicken wrapped wild rice and roasted vegetables, bread, a spinach strawberry salad, lettuce wraps passed during cocktail hour, a water station, coffee, and they cut and put out our cake for us as well. We had 5 staff there (for 100 people) who were fantastic, they bussed all the tables and refilled everything but did so silently so we hardly noticed them moving around.

Lettuce arrived 3 hrs before the wedding to set up; they set the tables and folded all the napkins for us with the linens we provided. Lettuce Cater did better than I could have even imagined and from the start we knew exactly what the plan was. It was everything a bride could want - they took control and said here's what we'll do for you, didn't need any direction from me, which left me open to have fun and relax. If I could I would rate their value higher than 5 because they gave us more than anyone else could have AND stayed within our budget. Thank you so much Lettuce Cater!

I can't say enough good things about Lettuce Cater! By far the best wedding food I have ever had and they were an absolute joy to work with! It is very obvious the owner, Brian and his staff love what they do and will work with you to create a menu that is perfect for your event! Brian and his team worked with my fiance and I during a very difficult time in our lives. We were originially scheduled to get married in September of 2013 but our wedding got drastically pushed up to Feb. 2013 after my mom was diagnosed with terminal cancer. Brian and his team worked with our limited budget and created a menu that was amazing! To this day I still get guests that comment on how fantastic the food was on our wedding day! They went above and beyond to make our wedding meal special and we will forever be grateful to them! Brian and his team are by far the best in the business! I will refer Lettuce Cater to anyone and everyone!

We are The Wedding Guys - Matthew Trettel and Bruce Vassar! We had the distinct honor of working with Lettuce Cater in creating a wedding dinner for "Foodies"! Do you know how hard it is to create a menu for a bride who works with one of America's Top Chef on The Food Network? Well Brian and the staff at Lettuce Cater amazed everyone. The taste was out of this world and the stylish ways in which it was all displayed was masterful! Our first time we worked with Brian he did an 8 course dinner with wine pairings for each course for 150 people including 3,000 pieces of china, crystal and flatware! Bring your creative ideas to Brian and his staff at Lettuce Cater and watch them come to life! Your taste buds will do a Happy Dance!

Our guests raved about our food.
We met Jules as our tasting, and things went so smoothly and so delicious. She worked with us within our budget because it was just as important to her as it was to us to be working together.
It was really important to my husband that guests enjoyed EVERYTHING about our wedding. Not "oh it was beautiful but the food was cold" - we wanted to hear no "buts"!
Our venue was at The Great Hall so we had 6 different places to choose from, and we did our share of tastings. Lettuce exceeded all expectations. From walking in to the door at our tasting - it was lovely! And they gave us PLENTY of food to taste. They didnt skimp on anything, we had two bags of things to take home!
As the wedding got closer, it was great to work with Kris. Her emails were precise and quick, she was always there to get a hold of for any questions and help. Thats important!
The chicken wild rice and pork pancetta still have us talking. Husband and i even joke about going back for a tasting just as a date so we can eat their food again!!!
