When hiring a caterer, you're not just buying food, you're hiring a team to create an experience. At Tip of the Tongue, we're as vested as you are in having the best experience possible.

From your very first phone call to the last guest walking out the door, you'll see the difference it makes to work with a team that really cares. It all starts with a proposal that considers not only your tastes, but those of your guests. Often a tasting follows, which is your opportunity to sample our food, see our style, feel the warmth of our hospitality and test our knowledge of event logistics. Then it's time for floorplans, decor and event management as we get down into the nitty-gritty.

The important thing is, for you to know that we've done it before and can do it again. Contact us to talk about your wedding day. Read less

Do yourself a favor and hire Scott Fagan and his team at Tip of the Tongue to cater your wedding. They will provide high-end food all around, and I promise your guests will be raving about it for weeks after, saying such things that they've never experienced wedding food quite like your wedding. It's true, because that is what happened at my wedding. They can pretty much devise any variation of any food you wish -- and their menu to choose from for cocktail hour, and reception, is plain and simple, mouth watering. Also, pay the extra for the wedding coordinator. Overall, although pricey, it is extremely worth it. Extremely.

I had a FANTASTIC experience with Scott, Ashley (his recommended day-of-wedding coordinator) and the whole team at my wedding on Fire Island, NY. Having a destination beach wedding at a home where rentals, the food, and staff were all shipped and ferried over was well worth the money and extra effort! I was in good hands with Scott, who was truly professional from the moment the furniture rentals arrived to the actual setup of the bar, tables and food prep in the beach house kitchen. I basically just let Scott do his thing and the team went to work! EVERYONE raved about the food, which was served tapas style at the beach house. Choosing to serve yummy passed plates and appetizers kept the event lively, and guests dined on a summer dinner menu from 3 types of burger sliders, arugula walnut salad, NY Strip Steak, Creole Jambalaya, duck, and everyone was so happy! And the signature cocktail, a yummy watermelon margarita was a hit too. It was such a success on the most beautiful end of summer day in August.

TotT catered our wedding at the Foundry in LIC. They did a fantastic job. Scot Fagan, one of the co-owners of the company, was extremely helpful and knowledgable, but at the same time open to our suggestions or needs and willing to be flexible. We went with his suggestion to do a tapas dinner which ended up being a great success. He also had great suggestions on the layout of the tables and the succession of activities through the wedding ceremony and reception.

The food was absolutely fantastic. The huge variety of the tapas style dinner enabled every single one of our guests to find things they liked (even guests with dietary restrictions). The flavors were fresh and bold. All of our guests were really impressed.

The desserts, prepared by Eric, were equally impressive (make sure you get the chocolate/passion fruit cake or bombs) and impeccably made.

The TotT staff was friendly and professional and made sure everything ran smoothly through the night.

We couldn't recommend TotT enough. They helped make our wedding day special and stress-free.

We had such a wonderful experience with Tip of the Tongue caterers. Scott and his staff were a joy to work with. The food was amazing! Fresh, beautifully presented and the staff professional. Scott was patient with us as we worked our way through the planning process. He gave us guidance and advice when we needed it. His attention to detail made our wedding go smoothly; we were able to enjoy the day without a worry about the food, set up or the comfort of our guests. We looked at a lot of caterers and we can honestly say we picked the best caterer. Tip of the Tongue gave us a fair price and delivered as promised.

They made our wedding so memorable for the incredible food and we appreciated their attention to detail, even making us plates with desserts and bringing them to us so we wouldn't miss them while we were talking to all our guests. They were so helpful in planning as well, being flexible and helpful. Our family is French so the food and wine needed to be stellar and they gave us great stuff within our budget! Loved them. Only regret I can't have another event with their food, oh, maybe I can.....

Tip of the Tongue was faultless.

Scott Fagan, one of the principals, took us through the planning process virtually from start to finish. This exceeded Tip of the Tongue's role as caterer.

The food was excellent. The serving of the food was excellent. Scott was expert. Period. We felt personally cared for.

He was familiar with our venue and knew how to set up tables etc so that the our guests mingled easily as the food was brought to them by experienced servers.

He patiently helped us through all the planning decisions we had to make.

We have wonderful memories of our wedding and of how perfectly our plans were executed by Tip of the Tongue.

Tip of the Tongue's tag line is "great taste is just the beginning." Indeed this motto best describes the services Scott and Eric provided. From the moment we met Scott and Eric at the tasting we knew we had found our match (this is after a half a dozen or so tastings.) Scott and Eric custom tailored our wedding to perfection. Scott created an entire new cuisine since he brought in a Persian flare to his food (a bold and creative voluntary move on his part) that was unparalleled as attested by every single Persian guest at the wedding (that is not a simple task as Persians are foodies and picky). My fiance and I also wanted an extended cocktail hour set up since we wanted dancing to be central to the evening. so Scott designed a party that allowed for a fluid, fun and dynamic evening in what he called a "Persian palace". This style ran counter to my parents' desires so Scott offered a private family style dining in another room for my father and his friends. With his casual and calm demeanor he managed to please everyone!!Scott and Eric's attention to detail allowed the evening to go beyond smoothy. They delivered a product beyond all expectations. We can NOT wait to work with them again

We had a beautiful wedding at Angel Orensanz and the food from Tip of the Tongue was fantastic. We spent a lot of time tasting and picking the menu. We were really happy with our choices and everyone still mentions the food when the wedding comes up. Scott was very helpful and patient going through all the details...more details than I ever thought about. Eric is an unbelievable pastry chef and took care of the wedding cake which was one less thing we had to deal with. The desserts were far better than any we tried with other larger caterers. We loved the personal attention and flexibility and had a lot of confidence knowing the owners would represent their brand at the event.

I got married 3 weeks ago and hands down, Eric and Scott with their amazing food and flawless execution, were one of the reasons my wedding will be forever unforgettable. Friends and guests I continue to talk to and run into cannot stop RAVING about how delicious the food was. I was faced with some challenges when I got married because, contrary to what the reception venue said, the place didn't lend itself to a sit down meal for my # of guests. Scott and Eric were very honest with me about that when I told them where the reception was taking place and I really appreciated that. They suggested a tapas style serving style that I had never heard of and was weary about because it is uncommon for weddings. To carry off a tapas style serving style with 7 waves of food, meant the food had to be amazing. And were they ever right?!!!! My reception turned out to be just as elegant as sit down, so much fun, everyone raved and loved the food and had plenty to eat. Honestly, picking them was the best choice I ever made for such a special day!

Seriously, Scott and Eric at Tip of the Tongue are the GREATEST caterers in the NY area. I met with/called/emailed about a dozen caterers after researching several dozen others as the food was the most critical component of our wedding. Scott and Eric were hands down the most responsive, professional, and informative of them all. To boil it down: the food was absolutely incredible, we still talk about it to this day and I'm not kidding; the quantity of food was beyond sufficient -- we actually ate our way through our wedding so it was crucial to us that there was plenty, and boy was there!; we had a cocktail-style wedding and every single tray/platter/display of food was stunning; even though we were very specific (and a bit opinionated about our preferences), both Scott and Eric knew exactly what we were looking for and made the perfect suggestions (they even guided us to or from certain choices that they thought would or would not work with our overall presentation); they created a dish or two to fulfill certain requests and even though it was their first time making them, the dishes were over-the-top amazing; our cake was perfection; they not only took care of the food, they helped rent any and all of the additional supplies that we needed, including finding the perfect color linens; Eric created the most perfect specialty cocktail; Scott was indispensible in setting the tone of the wedding, taking care of the "mom of the bride" requests, and making every possible suggestion as to how to keep the budget within our range even when we didn't ask; did I say that the food was incredible???? Honestly, I don't know why you would go anywhere else. Your search should end now.
