Saucy by Nature is a fantastic catering company to work with from a business, logistical and food perspective. For our wedding, we worked directly with Przemek (owner and chef) and would not hesitate to recommend using his catering company for any event. The catering RFP process can be grueling with lots of back and forth, but not so with Saucy by Nature. Right from the beginning Przemek was transparent and clear with pricing details. During our tasting, we were even more delighted to discover that his food is delicious and original! We wanted to serve untraditional wedding food and were happy to find that he had creative options from his menu. Also, his company ethos for globally influenced food with local, fresh ingredients matched our beliefs. From a logistical and planning standpoint, Przemek gave us confidence in his work as he helped us coordinate rentals and was very detail oriented, organized and prompt in responses. While Przemek had never worked in our venue before, on our wedding day everything was seamless with food and rental set-up. Lots of our guests raved about the food. His staff even packed up leftover foods reusing boxes and containers so that nothing was wasted. If we had another catered event, we would definitely go straight to Saucy by Nature.

After the tasting at his restaurant, there was no doubt that my husband and I were going to book with Saucy by Nature. Przemek was super friendly and welcoming. It was so hard to decide on a final menu since there were so many delicious choices.
When my husband asked Przemek if we could incorporate pierogis in to our cocktail hour, he lit up. He loved the idea of doing a pierogi bar. It was wonderful knowing that someone was as excited about this idea as we were. He was very willing to add that personal touch to our wedding.
All along the way, Przemek was super helpful. It was clear that he was very detail oriented. He ensured that we made the most of our appointment at the rental company's showroom. No details were missed when it came to the catering at our wedding.
All the food was amazing! Even some of our toughest to please guests were raving about his food. At the end of the evening, anything that wasn't finished, he packed up for us to bring home. Nothing went to waste! Unfortunately there weren't any doughnuts left since the guests ate them all up! Same for the pierogis!
We loved working with Przemek. Know that you are in good hands with him.

Saucy by Nature did a great job catering our wedding!
We met Prezmek and loved his approach to food, and their Floating Supper option worked well for our venue so we booked them.
Shayla was our point person and she was always quick to respond to emails/calls and walked us through the decisions we needed to make about rentals as the wedding date approached.
Shayla was great to work with and we never worried about her and her team pulling it off.
The food was delicious and there were lots of compliments about the food from guests. We highly recommend Saucy!

Saucy By Nature was simply outstanding. Our whole meal was passed, cocktail style, and guests kept remarking how great the service was.
And the food was incredible! Highlights for me were the quinoa falafel and schnitzel sliders - really fantastic. The ice cream sandwiches were unbelievable as well. My father also made 12 pies for the wedding, and Saucy had no issue with serving them for us.
Przemek and Shayla were exceedingly professional and a real pleasure to work with.

Saucy by Nature exceeded our expectations in both planning and executing our wedding. They were friendly, flexible and worked with our vision for our wedding and stayed within our budget. The food was amazing and several guests commented on how delicious/quality the food was. The presentation was beautiful and the staff was smiling throughout the event. I would highly recommend Saucy by Nature for any catering event.

Przemek (yes, you can pronounce it!) and Shayla were absolutely wonderful. They just catered our wedding at 501 Union in Brooklyn, NY. I heard a lot of people say "best food I have every had at a wedding." What more could you ask for? In the planning process they were organized, friendly and available. On the day of, Shayla was a key asset. She made the entire event run smoothly. I would highly recommend these guys!

Saucy by Nature caters great "brooklyn street" food that is fun and delicious!
We first met Chef Przemek (owner) at a "501 Union" open house and immediately fell in love with his food. The food was casual, different, fun and so tasty! We wanted something different other than normal shrimp cocktail, prime rib and dry cake for our wedding. Saucy by Nature was the best catering choice for us! We had an awesome "tasting" in Industry City Bklyn which allowed us to have a better taste of the foods Chef Przemek could offer our wedding.
Everything Saucy by Nature prepared for the wedding was great! Our favorites were the lamb meatballs, Korean Steak Tacos, Tuna Taco Tartar, Bacon Skewers, Spiced Roasted Chicken, Waffles and S'Mores!!!!
The event manager Shayla was also very nice, professional and helpful. She helped us order all our tables, linen, glassware, utensils, chairs, etc. Once we got to the wedding reception she made sure we had a taste of all the food that was served. We did not miss our cocktail because of Shayla. We were the first to be served entrees and dessert. The left over dessert and wedding cake was even nicely packaged for us to take home after the party. Shayla was so accomodating and friendly the whole time!
Saucy by Nature is a great catering service that is unique and personal thanks to Chef Przemek and his employees. I highly recommend them!

Saucy by Nature was a big hit at our wedding. From the start, we were impressed with their commitment to serving locally-sourced products and creating catering menus that weren't necessarily typical for weddings. We requested a Mediterranean-themed meal, and our guests were wide-eyed at the delicious grilled vegetables, 3 different types of kebabs, and fish wrapped in parchment paper. Even the salads drew rave reviews from guests, who said things to us like, "This is the first wedding that I've been to where I haven't felt disgusting at the end because of the food." One guest even went home and tried to recreate some of the dishes! Guests were amazed that we had such a variety of choices and that every aspect of the meal was flavorful. We also loved the "Saucy styling," which involved presenting food on beautiful slate and reclaimed wood boards. This decorative touch, as well as the calligrapher-made chalkboard menu, created the right ambiance at our October wedding. Przemek and Shayla were professional and easy to work with throughout the entire process of planning our catering. Przemek, the owner and chef, is an artist in the kitchen. He worked with us directly to tailor the perfect menu for our needs. Both our initial in-person meeting and our tasting included impeccably presented and well-seasoned food. Shayla, Saucy's event coordinator, is professional and affable. Over many months she worked closely with us to choose rentals and ensure that everything would run smoothly at the venue on the day of our wedding. She also worked well with our day-of coordinator, and together they made sure we were not burdened with logistical issues on the day of the wedding. Saucy's emphasis on impressive food and excellent planning make them a terrific choice for any couple planning a wedding in the Brooklyn area.

We went to Przemek about a month before our wedding (the previous caterers we were going to use were SO disappointing when we had our tasting) and had some doubts about whether or not it would be possible, but once we went to Saucy By Nature's HQ, he restored our faith that we'd be able to get it done. Though we only had a small sampling due to the quick turnaround, everything that we chose came out amazing. Even the wait staff looked the part without overdoing it.
Non-traditional weddings/event is what they excel at and provide an alternative to the traditional, expected wedding events.
Shayla at SBN was always at our beck and call, answering emails fast and offering great advice for saving a few dollars here or switching up something we thought would work but providing a better option. With her experience she had insight setting up the event and what would and wouldn't work, but still keeping in mind our vision.
Overall, it felt like working with good friends and they never made it seem like a business that was just in it for the money. It made fast wedding planning manageable and exciting.
AND the food was amazing, honestly, we wished we could've had more. Our guests continue to praise the food choices and the eclectic variety of options. We will definitely be using them again!

Planning a NYC wedding in four months is no easy task - as we now know from experience - but thankfully we were lucky enough to find and contact Saucy by Nature.
From the beginning, Przemek and Shayla were patient, helpful, and willing to accommodate all our special requests - from helping us design the perfect ice cream sandwich to serving my homemade wedding cake without reservation.
After all is said and done, however, what REALLY matters is the food, right? That was where Saucy excelled the most. Somehow they made a slider bar and taco bar combo look classy. The appetizers were detectible and the desserts were really tasty! Ice cream sandwiches? Sold! We're still hearing rave reviews from our guests about the delicious food and friendly staff!
Last but not least, the price was extremely fair. If you go with Saucy by Nature, your food will be memorable and you will have no regrets!
PS: The private tasting was awesome! Definitely a highlight from our wedding planning. Thanks, guys!

After seeing their spread in New York Magazine, we figured there was no way we could afford Saucy By Nature's catering for our wedding at The Bell House. We had a small budget, major dietary restrictions and big ideas. From the start, Saucy By Nature made it about us -- they were willing to work within our budget (and continued to be cost conscious to the end), developed a menu for us which encompassed our favorite foods and was almost entirely gluten free, and listened closely to our inspirations to make sure the food was stylistically in line with the overall feel of our wedding. Monika and Przemek were a dream to work with during the planning process and the day of the wedding was absolutely seamless. The food was delicious and looked as great as it tasted. And for everyone who told us we wouldn't eat at the wedding, Monika made sure that didn't happen and had plates of food for us at every turn. Saucy By Nature does everything right -- an incredible team of super nice, highly organized people making ridiculously delicious food, presented in a classy, personal way. Thank you, Monika and Przemek!!
Seth · Married on 02/01/2014
Monika was amazing. She helped us organize a fundraiser at our home (our first). She helped us plan the menu, gave us timely feedback and put together something we were excited about in our price range that included everything from barware to food to eco-friendly utensils. Chef did an amazing job in our kitchen preparing tasting passed hors-d'oeuvres. The passed service was so good, that everyone left feeling like they had a personal wait staff for the night. The Bar service was efficient and cool. I would highly recommend them for any event. I wish they had done our wedding!

Another amazing event with Saucy, this time our daughter's baby naming. Amazing brunch options, beautiful presentation and stellar service all at a reasonable price. Thanks again Adolph!

Przemek is a perfectionist, and is extremely organized, yet is very easy to work with. His staff were all incredibly helpful and were genuinely wonderful people that we enjoyed. We appreciated their professionalism, as well as the delicious and beautifully presented food. In short, they made our event a smashing success.
Jennifer · event on: 02/08/2014
There were so many great options to choose from on the Saucy by Nature menu. All of the ingredients were of the best quality. By far better the best catering I've had!
Liz · event on: 03/08/2014
We needed a caterer for a dinner party at the last minute and Przemek from Saucy rallied big time! The menu was sophisticated and interesting. The food was absolutely delicious and guests cleaned their plates. The staff was courteous and professional and highly efficient. They even were patient with the new puppy at their feet! I will definitely use them again in the future...and I promise to give them more warning next time!

Przemek and his team were professional, responsive, attentive and an overall pleasure to work with. The food was excellent, and all of our guests were quite pleased with the high quality. We will absolutely look to work with Saucy by Nature again.

very flexible folks to work with, and top quality food, service and staging.
Deb · event on: 06/07/2014
Saucy by Nature was great. We had a cocktail party for about 100 people after our Bar Mitzvah service. We had both kids and adults. Saucy by Nature worked with us to develop a kid friendly menu and an adult friendly menu. We decided to go with a speciality cocktail, wine and beer. The sangria was awesome. All the food was delicious. Everyone said they loved it.

From the first moment of contacting Saucy by Nature I knew they were unique. We looked for a long time for a catering company served organic, sustainable and seasonal food. There are actually many in Brooklyn, but none that actually LISTENED to us. Saucy by Nature work with in our set budget with out compromising our Manu choices. They were thoughtful and creative with their suggestions and easily changed things when we asked. On the day of the event they were without exception all professional friendly efficient punctual and present. They were in and out on time. They work around situations with ease. Every staff member knew exactly what to do. But most importantly, the food was superb! My best friend, an executive chef for Marcus Samuelson, said she was impressed. Hire them!
Patricia · event on: 08/05/2014
Saucy By Nature was amazing before and during the night of our event. They came up with an amazing menu for us and the food did not disappoint. In fact, it exceeded our expectations. Everything was fresh and beautifully plated and their presentation was beautiful. Easy to work with, pleasant and responsive, I would recommend them for any event!
Jennifer · event on: 09/06/2014
This was the 2nd time our company booked Saucy by Nature and everyone was blown away with the quality of food, freshness of ingredients, beautiful presentation, and inventive menu. They are very professional and a pleasure to work with. By far the best catering I have experienced. We hope to book you for all of our future events!

We've had the privilege of working with the Saucy by Nature team for two workshops, and each time we were very impressed by the unique spreads—we were proud serve lunch to our group!
With a sweet staff and thoughtful presentation, we've felt like the lunch they catered was as adorable as it was tasty, and we've looked forward to seeing them each day. The brown butter cookie with salted caramel and coffee ice cream sandwiches were a particular hit!

Great to work with, from planning through implementation and clean-up. Nice people, good food, nice display.
Leah · event on: 10/14/2014
As an event planner, I can't say enough wonderful things about Saucy by Nature!!! Not only is the food to die for, but every person I encountered from the person who I set up the order with to the day-of manager to the staff were incredibly professional. One of the reasons we chose Saucy over other caterers was because of how on-point and professional they were when we were getting pricing estimates. I would highly recommend Saucy by Nature for any type of event.
