    Catering Fit for Foodies

    Victoria and her team made sure our foodie needs were covered, plus all the other details I never realized went into catering (linens, table placement, schedule, etc. etc.). We are not cake people and wanted our main dessert to be ice cream sandwiches. Brulee made that happen, and more - 3 different kinds of macaron ice cream sandwiches and chipwiches! The hors d'oeuvres were fantastic and they made sure we got to eat that day. After the ceremony, a tray with two of every hors d'oeuvre was waiting in the bridal suite, so we could eat before cocktail hour. We were also served first for the meal (short rib/salmon!), so we could eat during speeches and be able to walk around to tables. Our guests complimented the food to us for weeks after the wedding. The food was extremely important to us, being foodies, and Brulee exceeded our expectations!

    It was all a dream!

    WOW!! From start to finish, Cristina and her Brûlée team were more than just a catering service. They truly helped us throw the best party of our lives. Not only was the food prepared and served as if we were in an upscale restaurant in Philadelphia, but they were efficient, friendly, and professional in keeping to our strict timeline. We have been to many weddings in which the dinner service was late or took so long there was very little time for dancing, but the Brûlée team and service was exceptional on all accounts. We had many of our family members tell us how friendly the staff was. The flow of the night went off without a hitch and we cannot thank the Brûlée team enough.

    We wanted an entrée that would appeal to the crowd, but also emphasize our amateur foodie style…and they delivered. We even changed our mind half way through the process and Chef had us over for a second tasting to ensure they nailed our culinary wishes. In the end, Brûlée created a meal we would most definitely eat out in the city – and made a point to eat on our wedding night! The attention to detail, from our Surf & Surf cocktail hour and a half, to our Turf & Turf dinner, they truly captured the essence of what we were looking for at our wedding. To name a few of the off-menu requests we were so impressed with; the CT-style hot, buttered lobster rolls, a beautiful seafood paella station, a Greek inspired cheese and charcuterie station, and an epic raw bar with what everyone told us was “the best tuna tartare they had ever tasted.” And, the crab cakes and lamb lollipops were INSANE. At our Sunday brunch our guests continued to gush about how delicious all of the food was.

    Overall, Cristina listened to our ideas, provided insightful feedback, and left us speechless with the way our wedding turned out. She was patient and attentive in helping to create our dream wedding, while also being honest and using her years of experience to guide us towards what always turned out to be the right decision. Since our wedding was in the middle of a park in Center City Philadelphia, we were a little wary of having to build everything from scratch, but Cristina is incredibly talented and went out of her way to make the decision making easy and fun. Brûlée is one class act and Cristina was a blast to work with. Not to mention, one of the best kept secrets was Rosy, our day-of wedding assistant who tactfully shadowed us the entire night – she made sure we were able to try every single item on our menu, always have a drink in hand, and ensured we were having a spectacular time! We could not be more thankful for having Brûlée cater our wedding at Dilworth Park. The food, the service, the décor – it was all a dream!

    Great attentive and friendly caterer with high level service and catering.

  • Deep Focus Wedding Videographers

    We had the opportunity to film at the Please Touch Museum recently, and WOW, what a venue! The ceremony was held in front of the gorgeous and flawlessly restored carousel, followed by the reception in Memorial Hall. There are more unique photo opportunities around the property than you could possibly exhaust in one day, from the exhibits to the grounds and architecture. Of course, the food Brûlée creates is out of this world and you and your guests will be more than satisfied and impressed with the quality and service. If Philadelphia is the city, look no further for amazing food and venue!
