We chose Blackstrap BBQ to cater our May Wedding and we could not have been happier with our decision. We had the farmer's bar for the Cocktail hour and a BBQ buffet at the reception and the food was so delicious! We got so many compliments and Blackstrap even packed up the leftovers for us so we could enjoy eating them for the next couple of days. We worked with Kate and Andrea to plan and Andrea was our event manager. Both women were a dream to work with. They were so laid back while also keeping me and my husband on track, we wouldn't have been able to pull off our wedding without them!

We had Kate and blackstrap bbq catering for our wedding at the Cambridge Multicultural Arts Center. This ended up being such a good decision! Kate is incredible and acted basically like a wedding planner for us. There are so many things that I'm sure would have gone wrong if she wasn't thinking about all the details. She helped us through every step of the process and made sure everything was going well. This is even before getting to the food, which was outstanding! So many compliments from our guests, many saying it was the best food they'd ever had at a wedding. I loved having bbq, I was not going to miss eating at my wedding! Kate and her team are the best - could not recommend them more highly.

I would trust Kate from Tasty Plates with my life! Ok, but really, she was absolutely amazing to work with -- sometimes I think she was as excited about my wedding as I was! She was the first vendor we booked, and she helped us figure out all the remaining details, which was great because we weren't totally sure what we were doing. Kate was phenomenal (and phenomenally patient) when it came to me changing the menu (like 3 times) and the tablescapes -- flatware, china, etc (like 100 times). She got my vision, and she was an awesome person to bounce ideas off of, and offer amazing solutions. Now, the food: it was SO good! Our guests are still talking about it. Like I said, I changed my mind a ton of times, but since Kate also has a restaurant (Black Strap BBQ), we were able to try everything in advance. The steak was amazing, especially, and everyone said they loved the presentation (think: fancy bbq-inspired, gourmet, garden-fresh, and delicious). She helped me think through our sig cocktails, and even brought mint from her own garden for the mint juleps :) I think what I loved most was that she was so accommodating to our changes, and to our budget -- we were aware of every line item, and she helped us trim when necessary. My friends joke that I was more choosy about my napkins than I was about my husband (lol!) but at the end of the day, Kate made sure I had the perfect mint green napkins that matched the venue (the CMAC -- honestly, get the napkins from Peterson's they match *exactly*), my bridesmaid dresses, and all that. If you're even considering Kate and Tasty Plates, I really urge you to pick her -- you won't regret it!

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!
