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. Their slow roasted herbed beef roast and their cognac chicken are to die for! I would truly recommend "Straight to the Plate Catering" for their top notch attention to detail, customer service, flavorful food profiles, follow through and overall food services. If you're looking for a foodie expert with outstanding service look no further! Straight to the Plate Catering has it all!

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.

We received so many comments on how wonderful the food was. The appetizers were to die for. The detail to specific detail was very much appreciated. I had numerous comments but one lady who thanked us over and over for the special needs for her diet restrictions. She was flabbergasted at this type of service and at such a large event.
