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.

Leslie sets the industry standard for what it means to take an event from vision to execution. From our first conversation, she asked very thoughtful and important questions to get a sense of who were are, what we liked/disliked, and what we wanted to the wedding to look and feel like. She returned with a menu proposal that deeply reflected our diverse taste in food, the marriage (pun intended) of two cultures, and a variety of foods that accommodated the vast range of dietary needs of our guests.

I've been to many weddings and food can be quite bland - especially when it comes from a pre-packaged menu. The personal nature of the menu not only assured it truly reflected us but also ensured that flavor and taste was not compromised. I am not exaggerating when I say the food was the highlight of the night (next to the grooms, of course!!). We are two weeks out from our big day and the one constant that folks continue to speak about is the food. In the words of one guest, "Where else can you find fried fish tacos and chicken and waffles served together. The fusion of flavors was incredible!!"

As a professional, Leslie's knowledge of the industry and design aesthetic has no equal - and that's a hard bar to set in a market like NYC. On a personal level, I'm looking forward to the next party to throw simply to work with Leslie and her staff again. The most critical aspect of working with Leslie was her knowledge of industry pricing. Not once did I feel "up sold"

When my now husband and I began the process of wedding planning we knew we wanted the food to really stand out and shine -this was high on our priority list. We love to cook and food is not only a huge love we share, but something that we have associated with family celebrations throughout our lives. I can not recommend Marcey Brownstein and the AMAZING Leslie Russell more. From the moment I sent an email inquiry to the tasting to finalizing the menu to the day of our wedding, leslie was by my side and assisting with any questions and needs that came up. The service is top notch and above and beyond!!! Super responsive over email, and always happy to hop on the phone, I was very pleased with the ease of planning. Leslie is the best, I couldn't have asked for more - she was more of planner than just a caterer!

The food options are plentiful-and all delicious. As a couple we frequent a ton of NYC restaurants and MBC offers high end restaurant-quality food and presentation in a wedding event format. This is NOT a cookie cutter wedding caterer. There are tons of options or if you want something custom, they can plan it with you. Our tasting was formal and intimate where feedback was welcomed and when the day came, our guests were over the moon with the food and presentation, and we could not stop hearing how delicious and fresh everything was. Handfuls of guests raved it was the best food they had ever eaten at a wedding!

Now this is not to say it does not come without a price tag. MBC is a pricier option among the bounty of city caterers, but you get what you pay for - top quality service and food on one of the most special days of your life. As I said, this was high on our list, and worth every penny. You also had the option to bring in your own alcohol, which we opted to do as it saved a little $$ rather than use their vendor. MBC also assists with all rentals which can be a daunting tasks --huge plus!! 100% recommended!!

If I could give Marcey Brownstein Catering & Events 10 stars I would! I was so lucky to have her cater my recent outdoor wedding in East Hampton, and I would recommend her without hesitation to any bride! From start to finish, Marcey and her team were an absolute joy to work with!

Marcey's lovely personality put me at ease from our first meeting. She is smart, professional, polished, and organized. She is proud of the service that she offers and I felt that she genuinely cared about my wedding. I told Marcey that my favorite cook is Ina Garten (the Barefoot Contessa) and Marcey nailed the wedding menu selection.

Her food really is "wow"-worthy and countless guests complimented our hors d'oeuvres, drinks, and dinner menu. We had a few hors d'oeuvres from cocktail hour that ended up all over Instagram, Facebook and Pinterest because they were so unique and delicious. It felt like every time I looked over my shoulder someone was taking a photo of the food.

My wedding day was truly one of the happiest days of my life, and I owe this to key vendors like Marcey. She created a delicious menu that impressed our guests, made sure that the bar was stocked with plenty of top-tier beverages, and made everyone feel like they were eating in a five-star restaurant with the best service!

Marcey Brownstein Catering was on the preferred caterer list provided by our venue, 632 on Hudson. I interviewed all of the caterers on the list and there was absolutely no question that Leslie Russell at Marcey Brownstein was the person to work with. From our first phone call, Leslie was warm and engaging, and clearly possessed expertise on how to structure the cocktail style reception we envisioned. She also is intimately familiar with 632 on Hudson. When we met with her in person, we were even more impressed. In addition to helping us create the best menu, she provided great advice on music, and hooked me up with excellent hair and make-up people. Oh, and the guest couldn't stop talking about how delicious the food was.

There were only two minor glitches at our otherwise perfect event. Neither glitch had anything to do with Leslie or our catering, but she swooped right in and set things straight. On top of her professionalism and expertise, she is a lot of fun to work with. And, we learned at the end of the evening, that she did all of this for us on her birthday! We recommend her highly, especially if you're considering the wonderful 632 on Hudson for your event.

We had a fantastic experience this past weekend at our wedding! We met Leslie when touring the Foundry for our wedding. She was so excited and warm that we had a great feeling about working with her. We also looked at Raging Skillet, which is also awesome (and had catered 2 of our friends' weddings), but we felt meeting Leslie was meant to be and it was! Leslie spent the months leading up to our wedding creating the perfect menu and bar selection based on our favorite foods and multi-cultural backgrounds. Leslie and the chefs were as excited about incorporating our Texas / Jamaican / British / Floridian / NY / Irish backgrounds as we were. When Leslie learned we wanted to bring Jamaican patties from a bakery in Queens, the chefs studied, experimented and created teeny tiny Jamaican patties for cocktail hour that were amazing. It was such an amazing gesture. And the Jamaican family really approved! Leslie was so flexible and extremely responsive during our planning -- right up until the day of our wedding. She kept me calm and reigned me in so things wouldn't get out of budget! We have gotten tons of compliments from our guests about the drinks and food and the few bites we had were delicious. (It's true, that after all your planning you'll see that you'll eat almost nothing at your own wedding, so make sure to have some given right to you!) The bar was also very important to us. She gave us great wine options to choose from. And my husband is a big bourbon buff, and I wanted to surprise him with a tasting bar. Leslie helped me put it together and it was a huge hit. The Marcey Brownstein team is amazing. You'll be thrilled!

Marcey Brownstein Catering and Events is the best. We worked mainly with Leslie who is a God send! However,every member of their staff was wonderful. Our wedding was destination for us and she made it so easy to plan. She helped us create a timeline for our event and gave honest suggestions. She was so accommodating with our tasting and rental selections. We were able to plan this wedding with only 2 visits to New York. During our consultation she met with us for approx. 2 hours and even had drinks and treats for us to enjoy. She put a menu together for us and we were able to adjust the selections as needed. After the tasting, she then adjusted the menu and flavors to our liking. We were able to sit down with the chefs to discuss our likes and dislikes. I even sent a recipe for one of the desert selections and they used it. I was amazed. Our guests commented on how great the food and service were. It was more like dining at a fine restaurant then eating your traditional wedding/banquet food. They even provided our bar service with only top shelf alcohol and fulfilled our requests with that as well. I would use them again in a heartbeat. They are more than caterers!

I cannot begin to say enough about Marcey Brownstein Catering. I worked with Leslie Russell, who was wonderful from beginning to end. Here's a list of all the ways in which Leslie and her team really blew me away:

1) Having been to weddings where you either can't eat your hors d'oeuvres and hold your wine, or where you bite into something and half of it falls down your dress, I needed hors d'oeuvres that you could eat in one bite. Leslie understood this and everything we served was easy to eat.

2) The hors d'oeuvres were also AMAZING. We got comments on them all night. Everyone had a different favorite and REMEMBERED what it was - I still hear about them. Also, the fish entree at dinner got rave reviews. Delicious fish at a catered event? Who has ever heard of such a thing? Marcey Brownstein pulled it off.

3) The service was impeccable. During dinner, a line of waiters would come in, each holding two dishes, and an entire table was served at once. That attention to detail really added to the classy feeling of the evening.

4) Leslie was so accommodating. We did some signature cocktails at our event and when a few weeks before we tracked down a different, and very specific, recipe for one of them, Leslie made it happen.

5) Leslie was also helpful from beginning to end with things above and beyond the catering. Leslie was the one who reminded me about a walkthrough at my venue and to suggest the easiest way to get it scheduled. And when I was separated from my maid of honor immediately after the ceremony, guess who bustled my dress? Yup, Leslie.

6) All the little details that you don't think about until you're at a wedding and get irritated were thoughtfully considered and prepared for. For example, you never waited more than 30 seconds at the bar.

I couldn't recommend Marcey Brownstein more, and am particularly grateful for having had the opportunity to work with Leslie.

I would absolutely recommend Marcey Brownstein Catering for a wedding. After researching over six catering companies for our cocktail-style Brooklyn wedding, Marcey Brownstein offered a competitive price with a professional, knowledgeable, and warm attitude, which convinced us to work with their team. And they were phenomenal! In particular, it was Leslie Russell who made it happen. Despite the fact that most of our wedding planning happened a month leading up to the big day, Leslie always made us feel totally comfortable and confident that we were right on track. Everything came together beautifully, thanks to many suggestions and advice from Leslie. For instance, my mom is allergic to shellfish so we decided last minute to cut out any seafood - no biggie! Leslie had great ideas for rounding out the menu. Advice on laying out the space at The Green Building? She was on it. Recommendations for a car service? Done.
Working with the Marcey Brownstein team was one of the easiest and most enjoyable aspects of wedding planning. Our meetings were always informative and timely, our tasting was delicious and on point, and the execution at the wedding was flawless. The staff an food got rave reviews from guests, and everyone left full and satisfied. No one had to hunt down a server, and guests were pleasantly surprised when their drinks were replaced - mid-dancing! Did I mention the food was amazing? Every one of our guests said it was the best 'wedding food' they'd ever had. I must also mention that Leslie did a tremendous job helping to prep the space and keeping the reception on schedule. You can trust her instinct regarding planning. She has a ton of experience so you don't have to second-guess her decisions. If you're in the initial phases of wedding planning, I'll save you the time and effort of researching catering companies -- hurry up and book Marcey Brownstein (and cross your fingers for Leslie!) for unbelievably delicious food and impeccable service.
