So much more than just a caterer
You know when you just get that feeling in your gut and you just know something is right for you? That was the feeling we got when researching caterers and we found Purslane. Not only is their food stunning to look at but they give back to the community and are really involved in recycling and cutting down on waste. (As a former cater waiter, I can tell you that there is a lot of waste at weddings/functions.)Sent on 01/10/2019
After initially speaking with them, I had a chance to go and taste their food- it was even more delicious than it looked. They use local, fresh ingredients and you can taste the difference. Well, we pretty much booked them on the spot for our wedding. Every experience we had with them was professional, kind, and knowledgable.
Once we had everything signed, we were given Isabel as our main point of contact. Isabel is a dream! We seriously can't say enough amazing things about her not only as someone to work with, but most importantly as a person. She was always there for us to ask questions or put our minds at ease. She made our tasting before the wedding the highlight of our planning process. She's just an all around incredibly hard worker and kick ass person. (Honestly, my husband and I miss seeing her all the time!)
The day of our wedding everything ran so smoothly, we were able to eat- they set up a plate of all of our cocktail hour bites and champagne for us to enjoy right after the ceremony (before we went out to greet the guests). It was such a special treat for us to enjoy our first married moment together. The food was delicious, our guests are still talking about it- (the cauliflower soup with fried cumin seeds and chorizo oil. Yum!) We knew that we didn't want standard catering food, and Purslane delivered delicious NYC restaurant quality food and so much more. It was delicious, beautifully plated, and the staff was kind and courteous.
Thank you Purslane and Isabel for being such rockstars! You made our day complete. (Seriously, people would have been really hungry and cranky without you guys.) If you're looking for a company that's a joy to work with, makes delicious food, and cares about giving back then this is the caterer for you!

Michael and I loved the experience of working with the Purslane team. The food + service + experience was incredible. I would highly recommend Purslane for anyone looking for delicious, local, farm-to-table food!Sent on 10/15/2018

Do you think that you have to settle for less with wedding food? This was what we were told as we began planning our wedding, and it seemed to be a truism. It simply seemed unrealistic to expect wedding food to be of the same quality as something you would choose to eat in a quality restaurant. And this truism seemed to hold up as we tried several very well reviewed and respected caterers…until Purslane.Sent on 09/28/2018
From the minute we sat down to do the tasting with them, we could tell this food was different. It was delicious! I would have happily gone to any restaurant that served the meal we had at our tasting.
We decided to go with Purslane for our wedding and were completely happy with the result. Chef Arden and Isabel were warm and professional throughout the whole process, they were helpful and flexible as we planned our final menu, they were even able to accommodate an additional cocktail tasting and complicated deliveries to our venue in the Catskills, and the food at the wedding was absolutely delicious and so fresh and beautifully presented. It truly was of the quality one would expect from a top notch restaurant, and it was just as good when they made it for 130 people as when we had it at the tasting. Several guests independently said to us that in the many weddings they had been to, this was absolutely the best food they had ever had. Purslane really helped us to have a genuinely special night, and I could not recommend them more highly.
