About Purslane

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.

Purslane exceeded expectations in every way. From our initial interactions with Amanda, through our more rigorous coordination with Air, we were so impressed. Purslane was incredibly easy to work with, flexible, and understood our vision. Working with a caterer who could entirely conform their services to your event particulars and aesthetic was invaluable and added to the personal touches we wanted to bring to our wedding. Ari was amazing. Aside from being a lovely person, she was so organized and always calm. She was an asset during the venue walkthrough, with helpful suggestions and meticulous note taking. We loved chatting with her during our (super fun) tasting at their Greenpoint restaurant and couldn't get over the tight ship she ran on our wedding day. She was also an amazing help at the decor rental meeting -- she patiently advised and set up samples of table settings so I could picture how things would look. Arden, the chef, is such a talent -- creative and charming, his work is like art on a plate. We felt so lucky to have been able to discuss our hopes for the menu on the phone and then meet him at the tasting. He explained each dish and was very collaborative (though we mostly marveled at the meal and asked fan-girl (/guy) questions about his career). The day of our wedding, the Purslane team was exceptional. They had a very tight window to work within, in terms of getting everything in and out of our venue, and did it will seeming ease. The waitstaff were so kind, gracious, polished, and professional -- without being pretentious. They made sure we ate and everyone felt so well attended to. To us, food was such an important component of our celebration and we wanted something special and unique. Purslane transcended anything we could have imagined with the quality of their food and exceptional service. This is a fabulous company and wonderful group of people who run it -- you won't regret hiring them.

For our “leaner” wedding of thirty-five people, my then-fiance Stephanie and I had dreamt of a wedding that was centered around our family, friends, plentiful drinks, unique food, and dancing through the night. Purslane exceeded all of our hopes and the space of Fitzcarraldo not only brought home the atmosphere of a classic Brooklyn night, but the outdoor patio and distinctive interior allowed for the intimacy, mingling, and dancing that we wanted for all our friends. However, before we even got to the big night, I have to recognize the hard work and effort, especially of Chef Arden and the organization, support, and joy of Nicolette, in helping us to put it altogether.

Although we had no official wedding planner, Nicolette immediately dove in to help us, listened to us, let us know all of our options, made wonderful recommendations, and - most importantly - communicated with us promptly, warmly, and consistently through the whole process. Further, both my wife and I are food-lovers and Chef Arden’s “crew” hit it out of the park. A first course of heirloom tomatoes with peaches, feta, and honey in a vinaigrette; a second course of strozzapreti in roasted tomato sauce with taggiasca olives, mozzarella, and basil; three different entrees, one of grilled seas bass in banana leaf with kung pao sauce, achiote, citrus, herb salad, and cashews, a second entree of “lomo al trapo,” a Colombian-style beef tenderloin that is wrapped in a towel and cooked directly in the coals (absolutely wonderful) served with salsa criolla, and a third entree of ratatouille a la plancha that consisted of beautifully grilled vegetables. As many have already said, and I couldn’t agree more, this wasn’t your standard “get-by” wedding dinner - rather, this was a meal I continue to have conversations about with friends and family that were there.

Thank you again to Nicolette, Chef Arden, and the whole Purslane group. Highly recommended and we will see you soon!
