Why should you choose Straight to the Plate? In the words of one of our brides:

"Without a doubt, Sue Carlisle and the Straight to the Plate Team is the BEST in the industry. Sue did a customized tasting for us, gave us great ideas for how to bring out a vintage-inspired theme, and went above and beyond to build a custom dessert menu when we decided we wanted to do something different. She was always incredibly fast to respond to our billions of questions and really put some love into all that she brought to our day. She is an all star, and I can't tell you how many guests raved about the food and the specialty desserts.”, Nikki, Bride, WeddingWire 7/13.

Words cannot express how pleased I was for the services that "Straight to the Plate Catering" offered for my wedding. I utilized "Straight to the Plate Catering" for catering services. Brett and Sue are true culinary professionals from start to finish. Their knowledge and attention to detail were insurmountable. I work in the event industry and have very high standards and I knew I was in good hands with "Straight to the Plate Catering". I was very impressed with how Brett and Sue took charge and went over and above to make our special day memorable, I was extremely impressed with what they brought to the overall culinary experience.

After interviewing about five different catering companies, my wife and I had the pleasure of working with Susan on a post-wedding party (about 80 people) back in February. Simply put, it was a delightful experience in every way imaginable. From the moment we first spoke, she gave me a comfort level that carried through to the very end. In addition to her excellent customer service, more importantly, the food quality was fantastic. This is also coming from someone that grew up in NYC, and has been in the hospitality industry for the last 25 years. I had a distinct vision for what I wanted to be served, in addition to a strict budget, and Susan, along with her Straight to the Plate team, were able to make it happen in spades!

I would highly recommend her for any of your catering needs.

Sue at Straight to the Plate is amazing! At the time of my wedding, I was on a very strict medical allergy diet in addition to being a vegetarian. Sue was able to accommodate my dietary restrictions and created an amazing cocktail hour and reception dinner that was vegetarian, gluten-free, corn-free and soy free. All of my guests (most of whom are meat eaters) loved the food and were amazed. Straight to the Plate went above and beyond my expectations for a caterer and I can't recommend them enough. In addition, a week before my wedding I had a mini-meltdown about weather and I wasn't sure if my all outdoor venue would work. Sue took time from her busy schedule to talk me through it and even made some calls to other vendors on my behalf. Wish I could give them 10 stars!

Straight to the Plate did an amazing job at our wedding. Sue Carlisle was so very personable and professional! I absolutely knew that I didn't have to worry about anything and she proved me right.

The qualify of the food exceeded our expectations and the guests all said that they enjoyed it. The presentation was well done and the servers that were provided were both professional and very enjoyable, they even did a little dance when serving us our first meal.

Overall I'd have to say that Sraight to the Plate provided very flavorful, high quality food at a very reasonable cost. I have recommended them to my friends and will continue to do so.
