Brought to you by the team behind Rucola, Metta and June Natural Wine Bar, our food is ingredient-driven with a slow food ethos and a vegetable-focused menu. We believe in sourcing locally and humanely, and reducing food waste with an eye toward a zero-waste policy. In 2018 we will be rolling out a carbon neutral wedding program, and off-setting any unavoidable carbon emissions by participating in the ZeroFoodPrint carbon credits program.
Our primary mission is to provide food that is delicious, sustainable, and beautifully executed. Our chef and event staff work with you to create personalized, elegant, seamless and memorable events that reflect your taste.
Our two boutique venues, Franklin + Kent in Greenpoint and Fitzcarraldo in Bushwick are available to host rehearsal dinners, birthday parties, and a variety of gatherings.
Our team has decades of experience in both catering and fine dining restaurant service. We are the preferred caterers for The Green Building and 501 Union in Brooklyn. We are also preferred caterers at Pioneer Works, The Brooklyn Grange, Dobbin St, The Bell House, Ramscale Studios, North Brooklyn Farms, and The Foundry, and we serve the New York metropolitan area and beyond.

Stellar caterers for people who love food.
From start to finish, working with Purslane for our wedding was an absolute dream. My fiance was set on having a vegetarian reception, and I was concerned about finding a caterer who could make an all vegetarian feast that would please even the most ardent meat-lovers in our extended families. Boy, did they deliver!Sent on 08/20/2019
Even better than the food (if that's possible!) was interacting with the company. Isabel was our event manager and she was amaaaaaazing. From the very first meeting I knew we were in extremely capable and organized hands. It was also great that they managed logistics for all our rentals and I didn't have to worry about how many napkins or plates, etc.
I would recommend them to anyone hosting an event of any size in the greater NYC area. Purslane truly took our wedding reception dinner from being a just great meal to being a legendary meal for all our family and friends. We consider ourselves to lucky to have found them, and are so happy they came on board for our wedding!

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!
