OMG! Where do I begin with Prime Fine Catering? First off.....it is one of the best off site caterers I have EVER had the pleasure of dealing with. I was referred to this place by one of my neighbors in the Hamptons. I was planning a welcome home/psuedo wedding party for my brother and his family. I met with Henry and he became my event planner. From tent, to tables, to chairs, to flatware, to china, to glasses, to servers, to cooks, to bartenders, and THE FOOD. The event went off without a hitch. The servers were good looking, personable and helpful. The cook was unreal. They just used my kitchen to make the spectacular feast! They set up all the tables, arranged the place settings, passed the hor d'overes (sp?), cooked the food, grilled the food, set the food out, made the drinks (I supplied the alcohol). When the party was through they wrapped all the left overs up, put everything away, prepared all the rentals to be picked up by the rental company. They left my house cleaner than when they arrived.
Everyone raved about the food and to this day (the event was during the late summer of 2010) when I mention Prime Caterers, everyone just says oooohhhhh.
The 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.
I used Prime for catering a few times for offices in the area. Their food is actually quite delicious, really. It's healthy. However, they are overpriced, and for the money paid on catering orders, you would think they'd at least give free paper plates and utensils, right?
I find it ridiculous that they charge a few dollars extra per person for paper plates and utensils. Even beat down pizzerias give free plates with delivery orders. They don't sell liters of anything to drink so that's an extra couple dollars they sneak in per person for individual drinks. At the end of the catering order, I realize I can get double the food with free utensils and plates for the price of what prime charges, elsewhere.
It's tasteless of them to lack courtesy for customers who would use them more for catering deliveries if they managed their customer relations a little better. It's really unfortunate because I, along with others I know in my field, would use Prime for orders if they were more reasonable.
Where’s the Party? Event Catering for Every Occasion
When people hear the term “corporate catering”, they often think of only certain types of events. What usually comes to mind is wedding catering, or a sweet 16, or bar mitzvah. The truth is, there is a multitude of events that could use the help of a professional caterer. Here are some special occasions that might call for some professional event catering.
That special time of year definitely comes with its fair share of stressful planning.

There is no shame in admitting that you could use a little holiday magic to help you make your holidays merry! Our team of Long Island catering pros have been helping moms all throughout Nassau and Suffolk County have happy stress free holiday seasons for years.

Bridal and Baby Showers
What baby or bridal shower would be complete without a delicious spread of food? Showers can be a fun time for all the girls. There are games, family, friends, and food. Regardless of what time of day a baby or bridal shower takes place, a delicious menu will be quite appreciated by the bride or mommy to be. If you hire one of the more creative catering companies, you can even customize edible party favors which would be an exciting and fun addition to the shower. Hiring a caterer for a bridal or baby shower will also alleviate a lot of the pressure off of being the hostess. Enjoy the shower and hire a caterer!
Celebrating a milestone marriage of your favorite couple should require some special food served up just for them. If your parents are celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary, you know that all your loved ones will show up to celebrate. You should consider hiring a caterer for an anniversary party, to make the party as special as the marriage itself.
