Marcey Brownstein did a fantastic job catering our son's wedding, but it was more than catering...from the moment I contacted MB (from Atlanta) and spoke with Leslie Russell, I knew I was in good hands. I like to give myself credit for finding a good thing and knowing it. We spoke to other companies, but I didn't get the same sense of interest and commitment from them as I did from MB-right away Leslie was interested and helpful. If she didn't have an answer to a question, she'd get the answer and get right back to me. That doesn't happen very often and I really appreciated it!
Leslie took a lead without taking over, always checking with me when necessary. She had great suggestions. While we knew what we didn't want, we didn't know what was possible. Leslie discussed all kinds of options with MB, we sorted through ideas and menus to create a special wedding celebration that was out of this world!
The food was absolutely delicious! Our 190+ guests couldn't believe how fresh and delicious everything tasted. Dustin, the captain, all the servers, and bartenders that night took genuine care of our guest to insure a lovely evening was had by all. In short, great follow-up and follow-through, extremely organized with attention to detail, very professional, yet completely friendly! A pleasure to work with...MB helped make our wedding weekend the best weekend of our lives!

We worked with Leslie Russell from Marcey Brownstein Catering & Events for our recent wedding and could not have been more pleased! They worked with us to create a menu that was exactly what we wanted. This is especially notable given that what we wanted was food that blended two very different cultures and was sensitive to my gluten-free diet. Leslie went above and beyond to meet all of our special requests (including finding obscure beer and liquor that my groom could not live without!). The food and cocktails were absolutely delicious, beautifully presented, and wildly plentiful. Moreover, Leslie and all of the other staff were lovely and a pleasure to work with. All of our wedding guests raved about the food and drinks. We could not more highly recommend Marcey Brownstein Catering & Events for any catering needs!

I cannot say enough lovely things about Leslie and her team. Leslie met with us before the wedding and answered all of our questions thoroughly. She was able to incorporate all the foods we love - including my husband's favorite Salvadoran pupusas - into the wedding food. Everything was delicious and the service was great. I thought Marcey Brownstein was the perfect choice and would work with them again without hesitation. I cannot express how helpful (and calming) Leslie was on my wedding day - she made such a difference in my ability to enjoy my own party. Highly, highly recommended.

We used Marcey Brownstein for our wedding on Sept 26th and it was an excellent decision.
Working with Sue and her team in the lead up was always smooth, professional, and personable. Everyone at the wedding commented on how wonderful the food was, the staff did a great job, and Sue coordinated it all seamlessly. We even had a week-of-issue with the Pope's motorcade route interfering with some of our planned rental deliveries, but Sue quickly found an alternate plan and it worked out beautifully.
I can't recommend them highly enough!!

We could not have been happier with our choice to use Marcey Brownstein catering. We did a tasting with them which was divine. They then offered to make a family recipe for one of our choices and it was incredible! The family loved having a beloved recipe and was surprised at how delicious and accurate (to the family recipe) it was! Marcey's staff was wonderful, attentive and so perfect on the big day! Her main coordinator was a dream. She accompanied us to pick out the decor as well and just made sure everything went off perfectly. And the biggest thing was : THE GUESTS LOVED THE FOOD! IT was delicious and incredible and we got so many compliments. I hope to use them again for another event, but it was the best decision we made for our weddiing. HIGHLY recommend Marcey Brownstein!

Marcey Brownstein Catering was recommended to us by our venue, The Foundry, and we could not have been in better hands! Olga Svirkova, our wedding coordinator was a God-send! She planned the perfect menu, answered all our questions and went above and beyond the call of duty to help us with every detail. The food was outstanding, and the service Olga and the rest of the Marcey Brownstein team provided was impeccable! Olga truly made our wedding night perfect in every way. Run, run, run to Olga and the Marcey Brownstein team!

As the mother of the bride with two weddings within 9 months, I have now worked with many, many vendors! We started our search with the preferred vendors of our venue, which was a bit complicated logistically. While several of the responses were fairly "cookie cutter," from the beginning, Marcey's were thoughtful and personal. Even, her earliest responses attempted to address the two different cultures of our families as well as the dietary restrictions of the bride (gluten free) and her allergy prone family! Marcey was creative and flexible and worked with us to stay within our budget....until we decided otherwise! I think I many have enjoyed the wonderful tasting dinner the most, as I then tried every single menu item, where as during the wedding I missed some of those delicious treats! The meal was delicious. Her staff was lovely and attentive and handled the complicated venue and logistics. If there were issues, I never heard about them and our guests enjoyed a magical evening in New York City! I look forward to working with Marcey sometime in the future at another special event. It was a pleasure!

Marcey Brownstein is consistently wonderful to work with. Leslie and her team are able to execute an event seamlessly each and every time. Not only is the service exceptional, the food is delicious! It's creative, fun, and hits the perfect balance between whimsical yet recognizable. It can be difficult to explain what exactly you want to offer for the meal at your wedding, but Leslie has a talent for understanding and creating a menu that reflects the couple perfectly. You are in excellent hands with Leslie and her team-- I couldn't recommend them highly enough!

We have worked with Leslie, from Marcey Brownstein and the team, for 2 critical milestones in our lives: our wedding reception for 150 guests and my partner’s 50tth birthday dinner. I can easily say that the quality and understated elegance of the food and service enhanced our receptions beyond any other element, and elevated it to a level none of our well heeled, discerning guests had experienced before. They are not ‘caterers’; they excel at creativity, vision and grasping the essence of the client’s idea, and go well beyond preparation and flawless execution to create the warmth, beauty and flavors to sustain any event...

What is consistently amazing about Marcey Brownstein and the team--though at this stage it shouldn’t be-- is that they have ‘heard’ you and they listen before you are able to even articulate what the vision fully is, and they run with. They are great at collaboration, flexible to adapt as needed or budget dictates, and effortlessly execute at the highest level of quality.

For our wedding, we planned a cocktail event, rather than a seated dinner. I am originally born in Iran and my partner is born in the Midwest. Before we even had our first tasting, through a brief description by our wedding planner, MB had proposed a delightful East-meets-West menu, with an array of 17 passed and heavy hors d’oeuvres with subtle influences and inspirations from the region, like cardamom or cilantro, without making a specific ethnic dish. There were no fewer than 3 signature cocktails – my favorite being the Quince Manhattan, representing my love of the New York autumn and the essence of my childhood when my grandmother would make quince marmalade. MB suggested that we start with champagne and canapés before the ceremony – how many times have we all sat through a ceremony while starving and dying for a drink?! The were a great tease, and a nice sign of delights to come through the long evening of grazing on delicacies and culinary surprises.
