Main Event vs. Mauzone (Celebration) for Bar Mitzvah

I am planning a bar mitzvah in the late spring and am in the process of choosing a caterer.

Last go round, we used Main Event and were very happy with them. I am afraid to go with someone else without firsthand experience, so I am turning to you all for your opinions/advice.

We will be having around 150 people at a sit-down kiddush and luncheon after Shabbat morning services (davening). Price does factor in, but is not the final determinant.

  1. why go with someone else if you were happy with your first try?

    do u want to be more specific about the location and what youre looking for in terms of kiddush and luncheon?

      I do feel that way about sticking with what I know to be good, but I guess I want to see if it's worth shaking it up a little.

      Sure. It will be in our shul. I am looking for a buffet luncheon with maybe a plated first course. Not overdone, with nice presentation and good waitstaff.
