  1. #1 Bacco Catered Events

    (59 reviews)

    Anna M.

    Chef Lauren and her crew were such a pleasure to work with! I specifically chose Bacco Catered Events because of the prompt response level and highly personalized attention to detail from the very beginning. Our holiday cocktail party is the highlight of our year. However, Chef Lauren and her staff made it even more festive and decadent than we could have ever dreamed of! Not only was each member of the Bacco staff incredibly professional, but they each made our guests feel completely taken care of for the entire night. The food was not only delicious, but the presentation of both the pass around hors d'oeuvres and the stationary food was so beautiful. Additionally, the bartender created yet an additional focal point in the bar that many guests commented on how beautiful it was! I feel SO lucky to have found Chef Lauren! We have already set our date for December of 2017!

  2. #2 Manjar Boutique Catering

    (52 reviews)

    Deborah C.

    We are so happy to have chosen Manjar to cater our New Year's Day party. Experience with a variety of caterers over the years has shown how hard it can be to find someone who is responsive during the planning process and provides excellent food and service. Everything we had on our menu was delicious! Hosting a group of well-traveled, adventurous eaters, having highly flavorful dishes, aesthetically presented, is always a goal. Thanks to Adolpho and his staff that was exactly what we got. We would order everything again but I must say that everyone agreed that the baby lamb chops were the best they ever had (and this group has had a lot!), and the tuna ceviche was exceptional. But I don't want to slight the other dishes (especially the superb mushroom risotto and vegetable "towers" which were beautiful...I could go on and on). I was impressed from the beginning with our first exchanges through Thumbtack. Adolpho mentioned doing a walk-through months before to see our physical set-up. Besides the hour I'm sure it took him to get here, we spent another hour talking and making final plans. I never felt rushed; he is a great listener. He asked questions that I wouldn't have considered and the party was all the better for that. We felt totally pampered and relaxed throughout the evening. The kitchen was left immaculate. Adolpho captures what is, to me, the best combination of professionalism and warmth. He is simply delightful to work with, as are his staff. We are so grateful to have found him and look forward to our next party with Manjar. Deborah Corbett Montclair, New Jersey

  4. #4 LCI Caterers

    (48 reviews)

    Alyssa R.

    Joe and his team were fantastic. We could not have had the wedding we did within our budget without the dedicated work of Joe and his team. We had over 200 people and Joe had a staff of 8 (which felt like 12) to prepare food for service, serve appetizers, bus tables and serve dinner. They were incredible. The food was excellent and Joe did a tremendous job in an incredibly challenging situation. We did not have a kitchen in our venue, so Joe was forced to make due by cooking ahead of time, transporting foods in temperature controlled containers and reheating onsite. The food quality did not suffer one iota, and Joe worked with us for months in advance of the wedding to design a menu which would respond to the challenges of the venue. People still mention how good the filet was 8 months later. Beyond the quality of the food, Joe is a full service caterer. For a nominal fee (far below any rental quote), Joe provided dinner plates, salad plates and cutlery for all of our guests. Joe also provided chafing dishes and serving instruments which were not available at our venue and which would have been exorbitant had we been forced to rent them from a third party vendor. Having the same person responsible for all of the food related rental items and the catering saved us time and money. Finally, Joe will work with you to make a menu for almost any budget. He understood our cost constraints and worked with us in creative and helpful ways to achieve a delicious menu we were proud to serve while respecting our initial budget. I only gave Joe 5 stars because they don't offer a 6 star review. He is excellent and the best choice available in the New York City area for wedding catering. Thank you Joe!

  8. #8 T&C Catering

    (36 reviews)

    Andrew C.

    We were celebrating my 50th birthday. We chose T&C because of the menu and Carol was willing to work with us on creating our own package. We chose to have the catered food dropped off. The food was great! And it was more than enough for the expected number of guests.

  9. #9 Festive Food Caterers

    (29 reviews)

    Kim D.

    Chef Michel worked with us to design a "Latin Flair" menu that incorporated traditional selections with unique flavors and pairings. The steak fajitas were delicious, and a favorite for the crowd. We also thoroughly enjoyed the cake, customized with our Company colors/theme. Festive Food Caterers provided the full set-up (buffet servers, warmers, serving utensils, even disposable dinnerware for the diners) and was present to explain what was in a particular dish or replenish servers when empty. From planning all the way to teardown, Chef Michel made our corporate holiday party a delight to plan.

Thumbtack Spotlight

Chef Erika

(40 reviews)

What do you love about your job?

My job is exciting and different each day, so it challenges me on a continual basis. I always wanted to help people get back in their kitchen and take their health into their own hands, and this work is allowing me to do this. I also love making my own schedule and having the freedom to take as little or as many jobs as I want. I travel a lot and Thumbtack gives me the freedom I need to close my doors and leave for as long as I want. Thumbtack is also allowing me time to do volunteer work.

What or who inspired you to start your own business?

I have always been an entrepreneur and started many businesses in my life. I am now 50, and I feel that I finally found the perfect job that utilizes all my skills. Thumbtack has allowed me to market myself directly to my clients without needing a middleman.
