Amazing food and staff!

Real Foods did an amazing job with our recent wedding at the Foundry in Long Island City. Yen was very knowledgable and flexible throughout the process leading up to the wedding. While creating our menu, Yen was able to provide excellent feedback and guidance, both proposing dishes that worked within our Mediterranean theme and helping us choose some of our own favorite dishes to incorporate. She was easily able to accommodate a family style service with a largely vegetarian menu as well as some friends with particularly complicated allergy issues, not to mention a last minute change in dinner layout due to weather.
On the day of, Real Foods' staff was extremely kind and attentive, and took special care to ensure our elderly grandparents had what they needed. Also the food was delicious! We got many comments afterward on how good everything was, how there was never a line at the bar, and how nice the staff had been.
Two thumbs up, definitely recommend!

Look No More

Look no more! My daughter got married at the Foundry. We did a tasting before wedding and Yen was quick to understand our preferences and make any changes we wanted. Day of wedding: NOT ONE PROBLEM. Everything was beyond perfect. The food cocktail hour food and bar was perfection- no one ever had to wait. The staff was professional and lovely. You won't have more delicious food with more beautiful presentation and service anywhere. Our guests are still talking about the food and service. Thank you so much, Yen and Co. I cannot recommend you highly enough!!!

Amazing Vendor!!

Real Food Catering was absolutely AMAZING! We got married in Aug 2022 at the Foundry & having Real Food Catering at our event was the best decision. From the first moment we started working with Yen and the team, they were so attentive to every detail & gave us ideas along the way that made the event so special. They accommodated every request & were so great about communicating along the way - especially since we had to reschedule our wedding due to Covid! Not to mention, the food was UNBELIEVABLE. Our guests cannot stop talking about how great the food was. The service was impeccable - Our guests drinks were never empty, Real Food was always right there to refill drinks and to offer any service. I am so impressed and they really made our wedding day perfect!
