Christine, Marketing Director | Event Planner | Experienced Home Cook
“Tim has been an absolute dream in all of our many dealings. He’s catered for me over the past seven years and never disappoints. Tim doesn’t just turn out a menu. He visuals the event from beginning to end, understands all the needs in the middle and delivers at every point along the way – from linens and staffing to stemware and, of course, delicious food. Tim Brown is an exceptional caterer, business associate and personality.”
Rosemary, Goldman Sachs
“People are raving about the food, the presentation, the menu choices, the quantity (dads were actually saying how happy they were to be fed!), how beautiful the bar and buffet looked, how great your clean-up was, and how lovely you and your staff were to work with. People were also praising you for keeping such an eagle eye after I left and the party began, keeping interlopers away. I handed out all of your cards to fellow parents who do lots of benefits and private parties, so hopefully all your wonderful work here will just snowball!
Our director was particularly delighted by how everything turned out. It was our best-attended event ever, and she thought (quite rightly!) that it was by far the least stressful and most fun. Plus, we raised quite a bit of money for our little school! My only regret is that it was over so soon!”
Hillary, 50th Birthday Celebration East Hampton
“Loved it. That is all I can say! The food was as perfect as it had been for years at the Park Avenue Bistro. The filet of Beef was tender and the raves over the Wild Mushroom Ravioli with white truffle Sauce. The day went way to fast and I loved every minute of it. I can’t believe Tom turned 50. Thank you Thank you.”
Donna, Kate Spade NY
“Hi Tim, Many thanks for all your help with Our Market week. It is always such a crazy time of year. Thanks for dealing with daily amounts and time changes. The food was always on time and looked delicious. The sandwiches were just the right size to grab and go.”
Jeannie and John, Pratt House NY
“The night of my dreams… I wanted to thank you again for the night of my dreams. My Parents were so pleased with the night as were John and myself. When you revealed the dining room and we saw the designer cloths and pink flowers with the crystal candles it was better than what I had in my mind. I thought the speeches were short and held my breath. The Port Wine sauce was delicious with the filet of beef and the creamy potato gratin I am so glad we did the dessert buffet. This was a personal favorite of johns Dad he loves chocolate ganache. It didn’t take away from the wedding cake. Thank you for all your details and so many emails. It all went by way to fast. Thank you.”
Mrs. Hill, East Hampton NY
“Dear Tim, The end of the night got away from me and I didn’t get a chance to thanks you for such a day. Ginger was over the moon with caviar station. The belini’s were light and the fixing’s were perfect. You were right it did make a difference to the cocktail hour. The look of the tent for dinner was magical and Wild Snapper with Saffron Sauce was light and so colorful. I thought the Chablis was the right compliment to the fish course. The timing worked perfectly in getting the guest in side the tent for the first dance. Adding the LED lights made all the difference The pictures are amazing. Thank you for all your patience and details.”
Stacy, FT INC
“Hi Tim, I wanted reach out and say thanks for all your hard work with the sales presentation. The rooms were a bit of a mix up but I know that wasn’t you. In the end I thought the room looked great and presentation was spot on. The buffet looked smart, Loved the Lentils with Mustard Sauce it was perfect with the Salmon. The mini pastries were so small and cute. The Lemon Ice tea was a nice touch loved the lemon grass. Thanks for everything.”
Dave and Jenna, Wedding Manhattan NY
“We wanted to thank you again for the wedding. I know we said we would call you from the plane but it was so early. You really made a great day for us. We loved the Tuna Tartare with Ginger it was the perfect bite, Doing the pictures before was the best suggestion. The pintuck tablecloth looked perfect in the ballroom. Dave loved the Risotto with Sweet Sausage and Roasted Red Pepper drizzle. I thought the wedding cake was breathtaking. My only regret was that it ending way to fast. Thanks for all your help.”
“We hired Tim and his team for our wedding at the Harold Pratt House and can highly recommend him for yours! In many instances the food is what really makes the wedding and Tim did not disappoint. He also helped us with various planning aspects and gave us recommendations on all of the little touches that helped to add to the spectacular evening we had. From the time we engaged with him Tim was fair, responsive and supportive of everything we decided. He spent his time with us at the tasting and truly adapted the menu to our liking and what we thought our guests would appreciate. For the record let us state his food is not wedding food, it’s so much better. If you hire Tim for your event you will have truly exquisite food that is elevated above what you could imagine. Not a bad word to say and we highly recommend his services. If we hold another large event he’d be the first person we’d call.”
“Tim @ Park Avenue Catering was the lynchpin to an absolutely perfect wedding. He was patient, kind, creative and an absolute pleasure to work with during the months of planning leading up to our wedding and on the day of. The food was fantastic – we received compliments from almost every guest who attended – which was incredibly important to us as many of our friends and family are foodies and/or in the restaurant business. He gave us great wine options that “punched above their weight” for the price, and he helped us find the perfect aesthetic that made all of the rooms for our wedding look amazing. Tim was truly a partner for us and we trusted him fully to get it perfect for us. That helped to take a lot of stress out of the process, and made planning so much more enjoyable.
To Tim: Thank you for all your hard work and for helping us truly get to the wedding we dreamed of!
To everyone else: If you want a perfectly planned and executed wedding, with a great partner in your corner, Tim is your man no doubt in our minds!”
“We worked with Tim for our June wedding at the Harold Pratt House, and couldn’t be happier with our day. From our first phone call about a year ahead of our wedding, Tim brought his enthusiasm for his love of food and love of weddings and we knew right away he was the partner we wanted to work with for our wedding. And partner is an understatement – Tim not only was our caterer but also acted unofficially as our advisor, and served as our unofficial coordinator on the day-of, keeping everything smooth from behind the scenes along with our venue coordinator. He also was a recommended vendor for our venue, and knew the venue from inside and out, and was even the person to fix my dress before I headed down the aisle. Throughout the wedding he was also very attentive to us- the bride and groom- and made sure that we had drinks in our hands and ensuring that we were actually being fed throughout.
On the food- we got so many compliments from guests on how delicious the food was. Our tasting ahead of the wedding was also incredibly fun as Tim created several menu items just for us, with my requests of incorporating asian fusion into our hors d’ouvres.
Overall, I cannot recommend Tim and his team enough on their professionalism, enthusiasm, and genuine interest in making our day as perfect as possible. I will be recommending Park Ave Catering to all our family and friends for any of their future catering needs!”
“Tim Brown and Park Avenue Catering is the best there is in the business! When I began planning my wedding, I knew what I wanted, and Tim knocked it out of the park from the first phone consultation thru the end of the night at my wedding. His attention to detail, professional manner, and suggestions along the way to help me create a wedding even more magical than I dreamed of is something I cannot thank him enough for. The food was amazing and the service was impeccable! Park Avenue Catering sets the bar high for what should be expected when you are looking for someone to trust with any event and especially one of the biggest events of your life! I highly recommend Park Ave with nothing but wonderful things to say! Bravo and thank you!”
