Caterer Manhasset Hills NY


3 star ratingThe food here is very good. I have purchased their meats, I have eaten their prepared foods, and I have attended events they catered, and I was extremely pleased with their work. If the owner could snap some sense into the counter staff, or at least teach them to smile, I would gladly add additional stars (note that the staff at the catered events were great, it's the folks behind the counter that need help). Look for the chicken burger, the Cuban rueben and the German potato salad - all highly above average.

5 star ratingWhere do I start. Everyone who works there is amazing. Once you start going they are good with names and will remember you pretty well. I work a few blocks away and get lunch here almost every day. They can make anything taste delicious and all the food is always fresh. Also a great place if you want to stay healthy as they offer various diet foods especially paleo. My favorite sandwich is either the one with chicken cutlet, Monterey Jack cheese, bacon and spicy mayo (add Cole slaw) or chicken cutlet, fresh mozzarella, prosciutto, and balsamic. Always get the 7 grain bread it's the best and all his bread is delivered from tomcat bakery every morning so it's always fresh. The chicken burger is healthy juicy, and bursting with flavor that makes you forget your eating healthy. I've been to a few parties that they catered and as always the food was amazing and the owners will go above and beyond to make sure the customer is always happy.

How Do Catering Companies Throw a Super Sweet 16?

When a little girl hits that special age of sweet 16, she can only think of one thing: her sweet 16 party! How can this party be as awesome as she truly wants it to be? If you are a parent preparing to through your little girl the party of a lifetime, you probably have a lot of questions and concerns. The good news is, you aren’t in this alone! Catering companies are experts at throwing an awesome sweet 16, and Prime Catering is here to see that your daughter has the time of her life. Here are some guidelines to help you along the way, so you don’t get too overwhelmed in the process.

Pre-party Planning

You should be thinking about your daughter’s sweet 16 party about 3 months before the big day. This is a good time to get some major details out of the way so things can run smoothly as the party gets closer. If you want the party to be intricately detailed, feel free to start planning even a month earlier. Here is a to do list that you can keep in mind as you get into the pre-party planning stages:

  1. Decide on a date: Check your calendar and make sure that you can throw this party on a date that is convenient for everyone. Be mindful of the fact that the party does not have to be on your daughter’s actual birthday. It is a good idea to look at where holidays or other family events come into play as well.
  2. Choose the Banquet Hall or Venue: It’s all about location, location, location! Choosing the right space for your daughter’s sweet sixteen can be a daunting task to complete. It’s her special day, and she will want the venue to be fabulous! Be mindful of how many guests will be attending. Asking your daughter if she wants a smaller party, or something grand is a good way to start in the location selection process.
  3. Saving the Date: Since you’re still a few months away, it is always a safe move to send out save the date invites to your guests so everyone can plan on attending.
  4. Invitations: After you have set the date and the venue, now it is time to send out your sweet 16 invitations. Make sure you choose a festive design so your guests know that this is going to be a party they’ll never forget!

Get This Party Started!

Getting the finalized plans for your sweet 16 should start about six weeks before the date. Go through the following checklist to make sure everything is all set.

  1. Theme: A good theme party is always fun. You will want this party to be something your daughter will remember forever, so get her input on what kind of creative theme she would like.
  2. Food: This is where the real meat and potatoes is, pun intended. Whether you are having a professional Long Island catering company provide food, or if the party is at your house and you are going the off premises catering route, the menu for the sweet 16 is super important. Event catering can get intricate, so be sure to go over all the details with your daughter.
  3. Music and Games: Sweet 16 parties are known for their awesome music and entertaining games. At this point you should have decided on a DJ to run the show. Make sure he knows all about your daughter’s fave tunes.
  4. Favors and Goodie Bags: Corporate catering companies can often help out with this one, so ask ahead! You can always supply some fun party favors, centerpieces, or goody bags as a fun keepsake of an amazing party.
