What can be said about Marcey Brownstein Catering & Events and most specifically, about Marcey herself that hasn’t been said already! Marcey catered my husband’s 50th birthday party and truly knocked it out of the park. However when I say “catered,” what I should really say is acted as the Event Planner extraordinaire. When I contacted Marcey, all I knew is that I wanted to throw a fabulous party for my husband’s 50th that included all of our closest friends and family, we had to play 80s music (per my husband’s request), but most importantly, that the party would be unlike most other 50th birthday parties one typically goes to in NYC . I didn’t even have a venue when I contacted her. Marcey not only helped me find a venue – Ramscale studio which she told me was one of her all time favs and after visiting it, I saw why, but she also helped me create an overall 80s night that my husband and all of our guests still talk about a year later! Marcey helped me source fabulous furniture and all the necessary 80s accessories – including a glass-mirrored bar, as well as a DJ who loved the 80s as much as my husband did. Of course, Marcey created a phenomenal menu that featured all of my husband’s favorite items. She even convinced her staff to dress up 80s style. Marcey’s staff was top-notch – professional, friendly and fun. If you are looking for a caterer to come up with a wonderful menu and delicious food – Marcey is it in spades – but if you are looking to find an extraordinary caterer who delivers catering services and more — don’t hesitate to look anywhere else — Marcey Brownstein Catering is it and then some! My next party…for sure will be catered by MBC!!

“…the party was a great success and the food was a huge hit!! Everyone loved the hors d’ouerves, especially the beef and chicken skewers… Thank you so much for all of the time you spent helping us craft the menu – your recommendations were spot on and we really ordered the perfect amount of food. We will 1000% be using Marcey Brownstein again in the future and recommending you guys to all of our friends!!!”

“…I’ve been working with Marcey Brownstein Catering for 10+ years both in the corporate and social arenas. They are nothing but extremely professional in every facet of the business. Regarding their food, I don’t think you can find any better of a caterer. Their chefs are amazing and come up with creative, fresh and delicious menus. MBC does many events for me, but one event that shows their willingness to work with the client is my three day Quarterly Review meeting I host for my company. This event is a three day program for 150+ professionals. MBC has been with me on this event for years and comes up with creative menus for breakfast and lunch for three days – never to repeat what we’ve had the previous day or years for that matter. My professionals are very particular and I receive compliments every time we host this event on how delicious the food is. As for social events I’ve worked with MBC on, I’ve received the same compliments from guests on how amazing the food is. Whether it’s a wedding or a 50th birthday celebration, everything is always perfect. I consider myself very particular in the event world and wouldn’t partner with MBC for 10+ years if they weren’t truly fabulous.”

But everything was delicious and plentiful and the variety was great. Everything was so fresh and flavorful. Just wonderful. Your staff was wonderful and their time was much appreciated. Every single person was friendly and happy and took care and pride in their world. They were great. Thank you so much again. I loved working with you and will now know who to turn to for our events.”

“I wanted to reach out and thank you so much for your help last night inspiring culinary treats during award season. The food was phenomenal, I’m still thinking about it! We really appreciate your expertise and participation in this event.”
-Michelle Sibley, Citi Cards

“…Everything was fantastic. Julie was the consummate professional. The food was incredible, beautifully prepared, beautifully presented, and done to perfection. The menu that you help prepare worked out so well for everyone. The appetizers were succulent. The mac & cheese was superlative. The steak was tender and the horseradish sauce was the perfect complement to it. Julie made sure that the steak and lamb were done to varying temps so those who liked it more done were just as happy as those who like meat on the more rare side. The Shrimp kebabs were beautifully presented and very flavorful. I was worried that we wouldn’t have enough food but there was plenty. I come from a family of excellent cooks and everyone was raving. Thanks again for all your help. I will definitely cater with your company again.”

“…You were really amazing to work with, and you made what sometimes felt like a bit of last minute planning on our end feel like we were 100% on the ball with you. It was a truly stress-free experience. Thank you especially for keeping us on schedule at the reception (despite the extended speeches…which we loved :)). I’m already recommending you to my friends :)”
-Bess & Joe

“We cannot thank you all enough for your preparation, thoughtfulness and delivery of a magical evening on Saturday. It was everything we dreamed of!!

-Jim and Eileen

“…What an extraordinary evening you put together! The food was amazing and the guests enjoyed all the menu selections served during the cocktail hour, dinner and dessert. The beautiful Pratt House with Matthew’s amazing decor, all came together for a magnificent wedding. Of course the Hudson Project brought the house down with their incredible music.
I can’t thank you enough for overseeing the timing of the event, the organization of all the vendors, and the processional and recessional. You are the best event planner who enabled me to relax during the party and enjoy catching up with my guests. I didn’t have to worry about a single detail.

I know you will continue to plan very special events for new brides, individuals and corporations. You are a great talent who makes the party planning process run smoothly and seamlessly…
It was a pleasure working with you to plan the catering for my daughter’s wedding…”


“Thank you again for an amazing night and running everything so smoothly! I was worry-free all night- Kudos to the Marcey Brownstein team! And everyone couldn’t stop raving about the food :) Ryan and I are looking for an excuse to have you cater another event. My mom’s 60th bday is coming up, so I may reach out to you guys again soon.”

“…I just wanted to send you an email to thank you times a million for making our wedding so amazing. Your hard work and organisation didn’t go unnoticed and we cannot thank you enough. You truly did such a wonderful job.
We have had so many people give us such positive feedback on you and your staff, the service was just so amazing, all of the staff that worked at our wedding were unbelievably friendly and did the best job with everything.
And the food….well, where do I even begin. Mouthwatering amazingness. The ice-cream cones….I ate 6.
Thank you a million times over.”
-Natalie & Ryan

“We left so quickly for our honeymoon that neither Dan nor I had a chance to tell you about how awesome we thought the wedding was and how thankful we are to all of you. I can’t even begin to express how perfect the day was and how smoothly it went. My mother and I have been in constant touch saying things like: “if I had all the time and money in the world, I still wouldn’t go back and change a single second of it.” We’ve also gotten millions of complements from the guests.”

“I can’t thank you enough for everything. People are still talking about the food! Literally, folks keep calling saying it was better than most any meal they’ve gone out for at a high end restaurant. I’ve NEVER heard that after a wedding. To see how coordinated your staff was with their service details – I was in awe. It made me feel so special and made the day so unique. I will never forget it!…”

“What a wonderful and special wedding! We came as guests and had a most spectacular time. The studio was beautiful, the flowers amazing, and the food better than most restaurants in Manhattan. Your staff was professional and organized and a tribute to how you work your business.”

As you know, we have both waited a while for a wedding, and you made it worth the wait!”
-Lenge Hong, New York City

“Marcey, Merav and I wanted to thank you so much for our January, 2004 wedding party. This was our first big party ever so, we were both a bit anxious. But you handled that with grace and threw a party that exceeded our most hopeful expectations. Your food was delicious from the hors d’oeuvres to the sweets, your staff was so professional and friendly and easy to get along with, and the décor was elegant yet intimate. The party ended up having such a positive atmosphere and I could tell how much fun everyone was having. Thanks again so much!”
