  1. I have been to affairs catered by both. There is no comparison. Main Event is far superior.

      I agree, though the best Kosher catering I have ever had was done by whoever handles the catering for the Manhatten Beach Jewish Center in Brooklyn. The biggest compliment I can posssibly give is that I couldn't tell it was Kosher. :-}

        Maybe they're using a different caterer since the original date of this post; I was there last year and it was one of the most forgettable weddings food-wise I've been to lately. I was especially unimpressed with the shmorg, but overall, I would say the food was really low end.

        I agree w/ Jeterfan - Main Event is the right choice there.

          Richfield Regency is my favorite. Their outside kosher catering is better than what they serve in-house, if you can believe it.

      3. They are both great caterers. Top of the line. You can't go wrong with either. But you'll pay$$$ for it!! If you want to save a lot of money, there are many excellent caterers that don't charge an arm and a leg.

          Very true. They are very, very pricey. That was why I made some other reccs. ..

        2. I keep getting mixed reviews. Its difficult to decide between the two. Prestige is giving me a better deal. I dont think I ever tasted pretige food. Its hard to make a decision.

            tell them you'd like to sample their food. That's not at all unreasonable

              My experience with Prestige is that the presentation is better than the taste (ie. it looks much better than it actually tastes).

          2. Had Prestige last Passover in Boca Raton. The food was excellent (And it was Pesach) I don't know the other one. We are using Prestige for my son Ofrif and the Shabbat dinner. The father of the bride is using a different one he's use in the past. I live in So Fla and decided going with Prestige because I personally tasted its products.
