We chose Blackstrap BBQ for our wedding at the Cambridge Multicultural Arts Center in Cambridge, MA, and we could not have picked a better caterer. The planning process for this wedding was something I was dreading, and Kate really made it such an easier, better experience. Kate is just the best, so flexible and easy-going, she listened to everything we wanted and made everything so smooth. It was within our budget, as well, which ended up being a major plus!!

The food was DELICIOUS. We had it served buffet style and it was the best choice we made throughout the whole process. While our wedding venue was ornate, having this BBQ made the wedding seem so much more intimate and fun. We've gone to her restaurant multiple times outside of just talking about catering. It is REAL good. Even my family from TN, VA, and SC can vouch for its authenticity and deliciousness.

I would highly recommend this caterer to anyone I know getting married. SO GOOD!!

We couldn't have picked a better caterer/person to be with us on our wedding day. Blackstrap was laid back but completely organized and professional at the same time and was a great addition to our wedding day. Everyone raved about the food, service, and the "not stressed" atmosphere of the event. Thanks so much!

I highly recommend their catering, our food was delicious. It was upscale BBQ and everyone loved it. Kate was instrumental in much of the planning, coordinating rentals, decorations, etc. and her team put everything together beautifully and worked hard throughout the event. We really had a perfect wedding -- everything came together and much of the credit goes to Tastyplates/Blackstrap. My only complaint is that people liked the food too much. I fantasized about eating take-out boxes full of leftover brisket but everyone ate it.

Choosing to have Tastyplates cater our wedding at the Cambridge Multicultural Arts Center this summer was, without a doubt, the easiest and best decision we made in planning.

Kate was enthusiastic, organized, and full of great ideas. She was easy to communicate with and made sure that we felt comfortable and were clear about every decision we made along the way. For someone who was planning on a budget, I can't express how valuable and reassuring it was to have a completely transparent, easy to understand invoice.

Kate and Chris created a menu that suited our personalities perfectly. I've heard that brides don't usually eat much on their wedding days, but I went back for a second plate. Every bite was delicious. Our guests loved it, too.

The service was great. Kate's kids helped serve the buffet! Our guests were never wanting for food and the bartenders kept them well-lubricated.

Kate went above the call of duty on more than one occasion. It is no joke that she is way more than just a caterer. When we told her we wanted a tower of donuts instead of a wedding cake, she didn't bat an eyelash and somehow assembled an out-of-this-world display. She patiently spent 4+ hours with me on the day before the wedding choosing and arranging ALL of the flowers for our big day. Through the whole process, Kate was a pro at taking my half-formed, scattered ideas about the look and feel of the wedding and turning them into a reception that was the perfectly weird representation of us.

We would choose Tastyplates over and over again.

We were looking for a caterer for our outdoors spring wedding at the Loring Greenough House in Jamaica Plain and found Tastyplates. Kate is amazing! The barbecue from her restaurant Blackstrap BBQ in Winthrop, is among the best I've ever had. Everything we tried when we went for the tasting was excellent! On top of that, Kate is a delight to work with. She is very friendly and responsive, but also incredibly professional. She helped us find our tent vendor and alcohol supplier as well and made sure everything got set up seamlessly. Our guests loved the food, and the presentation was beautiful. There were plenty of options for vegetarians, too -- like the macaroni and cheese and the mashed sweet potatoes -- and Kate's wonderful staff explained what options were okay for our of our guests who couldn't eat gluten. We were really happy we went with Tastyplates for our wedding!

Working with Kate and tastyplates was one of the best decisions we made throughout the wedding planning process! We initially contacted tastyplates because the price was right for our budget, but it ended up being the right choice for us for so many other reasons. Kate herself is incredibly nice and well-organized. She responded to every email and phone call quickly. I did not hire a wedding planner, and Kate was very generous to responding to the inevitable "How do I....." and "What do you think...." questions that popped up along the way. The day of the ceremony and throughout the reception, Kate kept everyone on track and on time, without being intrusive or bossy. She kept an eye on some of my potentially difficult relatives. The guests all behaved, but if they hadn't I have no doubt that Kate would have managed them quickly and quietly and politely, like happy wedding ninja....
Most importantly, the food was really delicious. While visiting with people at their tables during the dinner hour, every plate I saw was completely cleaned. More than one person told us it was the best food they had ever had at a wedding!

I can't say a bad thing about Kate, her staff or the food! In fact, the food stole the show at the wedding, every single guest was raving about dinner (and appetizers)! We didn't have a "typical" wedding so we opted to do some buffet style BBQ from Blackstrap BBQ, and I think it is safe to say that no one left hungry (not even us, Kate was nice enough to pack up a few plates for us since we didn't get much of a chance to eat!) Kate was wonderful to work with, she is extremely professional, easy to get a hold of and patient with a fussy bride who had a billion questions and changed her mind several times on side dishes! Even though Blackstrap BBQ is over an hour away from our house, my husband and I will definitely be making frequent trips there for some amazing cuisine and to say hello to Kate! Big thanks to her and her staff for making our day as seamless and stress-free as possible!

Choosing Tastyplates was the best decision we could have made for our July wedding on Martha's Vineyard! We stumbled upon them by accident - I had seen a Boston Globe post about the amazing food at their restaurant, Blackstrap BBQ in Winthrop, and we decided to check it out for dinner one night. We were blown away by how good the food was - as good, or better, as what we've had in the South! And, they had Tastyplates- a catering division. We booked them more than a year in advance.

Working with Kate was a dream - she was very responsive to my emails and phone calls and kept things organized. She also has a great creative side and helped me get ideas for colors, props, and overall style.

Our wedding was on the Vineyard, and the Tastyplates team hadn't done a wedding there before, but Kate was excited to plan it. She helped me get all of the information ready for the ferry, and on the day of the wedding it was smooth sailing!

Our guests could not believe how amazing the food was - we had a buffet set-up with bbq pulled chicken and pork, mac and cheese, pickles, cornbread, fresh in-season vegetable salad, and an assortment of sauces/rubs. For appetizers we had two different pizzas, a delicious smoked halloumi cheese tart, and even an oyster station (huge hit).

The only regret we had at our wedding was having only one plate of food. We both were kicking ourselves later for not going back for seconds! Alas, we were spending time with our guests:-)

Thank you so much to the entire Tastyplates staff, Chris who lead the amazing cooking, and especially to Kate for making our event a suceess!
