Wedding Caterer in NYC - Kosher Dairy

bengtrammell Aug 10, 2006 11:16 PM

Has anyone had really good kosher dairy from a caterer in the area? I'm planning to be wed this winter at a secular site and want to bring in certified kosher food that's really good. Dairy + fish is what we're hoping to serve.

Also, any tips on a great kosher wedding cake? We care much more about how it tastes than how it looks. Not pareve - we're dedicated to milk and butter!

Thanks for any advice.

    I went to a dairy wedding with great food catered by Manna, if they're still around. Their desserts are dairy and very good.

    My wedding caterer (we had meat wedding) was Simply Divine. Don't know if they're still around either, but I imagine they do dairy. Their food was fanatastic, really beautiful to look at and great-tasting. Very creative for a kosher caterer, I felt.

      I recommend Sapienza in Elmont (right next to the City line) for your wedding cake. It is an excellent Italian bakery that happens to be kosher (Kaf K). The Bakery only has dairy products.

        I've used Trends Caterers ("Ezra") in Brooklyn for a wedding (meat) and a bar mitzva (dairy). I was delighted with both the food and the level of service each time.

          I recommend Austein Caterers ( 516 ) 256 - 3582. Richie Austein is an excellent caterer. I attended a simcha that he catered (dairy). The food and service were excellent.

            I recommend "La Petite France" in Lakewood, NJ. David, the chef, is French and has a very fine culinary sensibility. The food is suberb, and his desserts will floor you. He uses no artificial ingredients. He accomodated our every request for our off-site wedding. We were very happy.

            Here is the website to his restaurant:
