We wanted a fun and fancy wedding in NYC. I am Polish and my husband is Argentinian, both living in the city. We were mixing three different cultures and it wasn’t an easy task. For Argentinians wine, champagne and the quality of alcohol is important, so our sommelier friend came up with an outstanding selection. Now we needed the most important partner, the food. And that is where Chris from Nova Catering totally surpassed our expectations…

For the quality of the wedding that we were aiming for, we were going to go with what we considered the safest bet, and select from the highest rated caterer from this site. The initial quotes were outrages, and not because we could not afford them, but because the variety, quality, and quantity of food did not justify the cost. I believe these vendors come up with unjustifiable margins. We could not be happier of having to found Chris. If we would have followed the numbers of reviews from this page, we would have never selected him, but we took a leap of faith and decided to go to his free tasting…Wow, it was amazing! Not only the food, but the way he served it, the presentation, his awesome staff members, everything… Our guests were amazed. They felt as if they were dining at a Michelin star restaurant!

The pricing, significantly cheaper from top rated caterers, including beautiful rentals, and set up.

The food, what can I say, burrata from Italy, caviar, oysters, foie gras, tuna tartare, filet mignon, wild caught salmon… All picked from a huge variety of options. Honestly, we had a hard time deciding, as we liked everything on his menu.

And finally, Chris. Chris is laid back, not pushy at all, an artist. He is so good and confident at what he does, that…. Ladies stress about your wedding dress, your makeup artist, your hair, but don’t stress about your food and set up, Chris and his staff from Nova Catering will take care of all that, and trust me, they will exceed your expectations.

I cannot say enough great things about Chris and his team. We had a loft wedding, which meant that catering w/rentals was our biggest expense and most important purchase. Nova's pricing was the most reasonable of the nice caterers we looked at, and Chris was by far one of the most pleasant caterers to deal with. We could not have been more pleased with how everything turned out - from the quality of the food to the quality of the service. Chris worked with us to create a customized menu based off our favorite foods, and the results were a knockout - think perfectly seared sea scallops in a porcini mushroom broth and frisee salad with roasted figs and a truffle oil vinagrette. A tasting was never an issue, and his team was extremely courteous and professional. We and our guests felt like we were in great hands all night, and we got loads of compliments on the food and service. Chris even did our cake, which turned out excellent. I only wish I could re-hire him for another big party soon. Truly. Hiring Nova was one of the best decisions we made, and I cannot recommend him enough.

We recently selected Nova for our wedding and could not have asked for a better partner to feed our guests. Chris was the only one we spoke to that actually were interested in us as a couple- what we liked eating and cooking, where we liked going for dinner etc. Then they suggested a menu that was perfect for us based on this and wowed us with it when we went to meet with them for the first time. We must note our favorite element- that they created hor's dueves to reflect our backgrounds [ie. Mini British Fish and Chips] which were delicious and popular with all the guests. They were responsive and did everything they could to meet out requests.
Every guest commented on how great it was and we can't wait to have another party to meet them again!
On the day the service was excellently managed by Burgos and his team.

We recently worked with Chris and his team for our wedding in NYC. We had previously worked with him for a business event - so it was an easy decision when we had to select our wedding caterer.

Firstly, Chris was fantastic when we were planning our menu and his guidance and suggestions were second to none. On the evening, the food was exquisitely presented and we have been receiving compliments from all of our guests on the menu we selected and the taste of the food - many have said it was the best wedding food they have ever had. We would highly recommend working with Chris. He is also very reasonable cost wise particularly in the NYC market.
