    Amazing Experience

    The planning process was fun and easy. Brittany made great suggestions through the process, not only on food but also easy center pieces and ways to stay on track with our budget. Such amazing service, and Everything was delicious and contributed to a perfect day!

    I couldn't recommend Michael and Kurt to handle catering for your event enough. To start they are very responsive even during the busiest of season timing. I always felt that my business was important to them. They were very flexible on meeting times and organized with all details. I was never concerned that any past events with these two would be anything but perfect. Presentation was gorgeous, their staff were on top of things, and last but not least the food was amazing. Not one of my client's guests complained about being hungry which can be a common issue with a cocktail style event. Not only are these two talented at what they do, I honestly enjoyed them as who they are as individuals. The events business is full of plenty of tough cookies and they felt like nothing less then old friends to me.

    I would do it all over again just to taste their wonderful food again. My only regret is that people came to my wedding and I had to talk to them, or I would have just sat in the kitchen all night stuffing my face with their delicious, perfect, mouth-watering, amazing, creations. One of our groomsmen is in the NYC food industry and can be a bit of a snob... he loved it. Alot of our guests traveled from the center of the country (where the food can be a little bland)... they loved the food as well. Total crowd pleasers. I cannot say enough good things. They took a very loose theme, based on a style of food that we enjoyed at a restaurant in the city, and ran with it. Their staff are also the most attentive and friendly and gorgeous people I have ever been served by. Always smiling and able to talk about the food they are passing around. By the end of the night my parents knew the bartenders by name. :)
