    Such good food and amazing staff

    We hired Bartleby and Sage for our catering and day of coordination. The menu they put together was exactly what we wanted (food was one of our top priorities for the wedding) from incredibly tasty passed appetizers (lamb chops were a favorite) and signature cocktails to a beautifully plated dinner, passed desserts and late night fried food. They were incredibly flexible when we wanted to change aspects of a dish and it all came out so great! We also loved working with Rachael for our day of needs, she managed all the vendors expertly and I had zero stress the day of! She was also incredibly responsive over email and helped us nail all the details, providing incredibly helpful advice around every decision and handling all the details (and I had many in full disclosure) perfectly. Highly recommend both Bartleby & Sage and Rachael!

    Look no further!

    Amazingly enough, Bartleby and Sage was the first caterer I reached out to, and after getting quotes and researching many others, I came back to them. Having made the decision on The Foundry as our wedding venue, I was super intimidated by the “a la carte” style of wedding planning. Leslie put me and my fiancé at ease completely and made us feel like anything was possible! And it was. We had our dream wedding with amazing, “non traditional” food, exactly how we imagined it. Our family and friends were so impressed by the classy hors d'oeuvres and main courses. We also got multiple compliments about the quality and attentiveness of the staff during the night. I also highly recommend booking Leslie’s planning services. I didn’t have to worry about anything day of. And prior to the wedding, somehow Leslie made us feel like we were her only client, taking multiple days to help us with the rentals at the rental studio. And a bonus, is that this was the only catering company that offered a complimentary tasting. Other companies wanted us to throw down many thousands of dollars without even tasting their food...sorry that was not an option! Definitely look no further than Bartleby and Sage for your caterer!
