    Simply Elegant Indeed!

    Simply Elegant Catering served all our culinary needs. Special menu requests were handled with ease. The bride and groom had extremely specific requests for their food which differed from the standard menu selections. Sam and Michele did not blink an eye when asked to accommodate their unique dietary desires. They happily provided special meals for our vegan guests, our vegetarian guests, and our guests with food allergies. Due to Covid-19 restrictions, appetizers could not be served so they were easily replaced with plated offerings. Days after the wedding, we continued to get compliments about how good the meal was. We would use Simply Elegant Catering for all our catering needs.

    We had an Indian fusion wedding for approximately 100 people last weekend at an off-site venue, and Simply Elegant Catering did a fantastic job. We originally contacted SEC to provide full service catering and American style food, with the intent of having another restaurant provide Indian food. However, SEC’s chef offered to make the Indian food for our tasting, and it was delicious. As a result, SEC catered both style menus. They also worked with us to develop a mostly vegetarian menu to meet the needs of the groom and many of our guests. A few of our guests actually commented that it was the best wedding food they’ve ever had.

    Sam of SEC was very helpful and responsive, and his entire staff seemed eager to work with us to help make our event run smoothly and meet our wishes. And SEC’s services were very reasonably priced.

    Overall, I can’t say enough good things about SEC, and would recommend them to anyone looking for delicious food with friendly service. I would also recommend SEC to anyone looking to have a not-so-traditional event, as Sam and his team were very helpful in making suggestions to help our wedding day run smoothly, and at the same time develop a menu and environment that met our diverse needs.
