North Jersey Kosher Caterer needed

leslie morrison Dec 1, 2011 08:41 PM

I'm looking for a caterer for a Saturday night Bar Mitzvah melaveh malkah for my son, to do a dairy buffet in a reasonable price range. There will be more adults than kids, Has anyone tasted Petak's or Eighth Day Caterer's food? Do they do a nice job? Any other suggestions?

    I have tasted Petak's food. They do a nice job-delicous food,nice presentation.We may speak to them for our son's milchig Bar Mitzvah brunch. Friends of ours are using them for their son's Bar Mitzvah. Petak's did a beautiful job for their daughter's simcha.

      I have used Reuben's Glatt Spot as well as Herb 'N Spice Catering, both out of West Orange and was very happy with both of them, and have attended multiple of their catering events. Both very good and able to do dairy or meat.

      I have not used Gemstone Catering, but have tasted his food and it's great.

        Have you ever used Shimon Nissel out of West Orange? Do you know anything about him?
