The Best Catering for NYC Events and Parties

A Williamsburg caterer since 2005, Red Table Catering combines an adventurous, global palate with a focus on fresh, local ingredients to catered events all around the New York Metropolitan Area. Working out of our headquarters in the historic (and still devastatingly hip) Williamsburg neighborhood in Brooklyn, we consider every job a partnership, working closely with our clients to develop custom menus for special events ranging from weddings, anniversaries and mitzvahs to fundraisers, museum galas, and corporate events of all sizes.

Bar Service and Alcohol Catering in NYC

Arranging separate food and alcohol service in New York City can be a hassle. Fortunately, Red Table Catering is one of few NYC caterers fully licensed to provide bar service and alcohol catering in New York State. Because we take care of all the permitting, coordinating, transport and staffing, you’ll save both time and money, and gain peace of mind come the day of your special event.

Ranked Among the Top Brooklyn Caterers

Whether you’re feeding 50 or 1,000, we don’t think you should have to forgo fresh, high-quality and locally sourced foods. In addition to being a major metropolis in its own right, Brooklyn is a culinary hotbed, and we’re proud to partner with local butchers, fishmongers, farmers’ markets and specialty shops—such as Bay Ridge Bakery, Porto Rico Importing, Saxelby Cheesemongers and Fossil Farms—in order to provide you and your guests with unforgettable dining experiences.

If you’ve had your fill of tired steam-table banquet food, let us show you just how good food for a crowd can be. Drop us a line or come by our Williamsburg storefront.

A Track Record for Skilled, Seamless NYC Catering

We believe our food is remarkable, but that’s only the beginning of the Red Table Catering experience. Or perhaps, the end of the Red Table Catering experience. From the first conversation, our goal is to develop a game plan based around your goals, your tastes and your budget so that by the day of your special event, there are no wrinkles or unexpected hitches.

Whether it’s passed hors d’oeuvre, box lunches, or our popular “Market Tables,” executing consistent, drop-dead delicious food for special events in NYC is no small feat. Brooke Costello, Red Table Catering’s executive chef and owner, brings decades of culinary and managerial experience to bear, and it’s with immense pride that we can point out that we’re recognized as one of the best Brooklyn caterers; you’ll find glowing reviews on Yelp, Google, Wedding Wire and other trusted sites.

When we went to sample their dishes, we were blown away. Everything we tried, we loved. The staff were so good and helpful and friendly. It really added to the mood and feel of the whole wedding. Our guests loved it all, from the hors d’oeuvres to the incredible desserts. We took those home with us after the wedding!

Red Table has consistently delivered and has been a breeze to work with over the last few years, from private dinners to company festivities. The food is delicious, the drinks strong, and their service is among the best I’ve encountered for catered events. Their staff members are warm, discrete, and great problem solvers, taking care of any issues or challenges that may arise with little effort from the hosts (i.e. sudden rain in middle of an event, throwing a party in a raw construction space, etc.). Events with them always run smoothly and efficiently, and they truly bend over backwards for their clients. I highly recommend them.


We hired Red Table Catering after doing some online research for an experienced Brooklyn caterer for our wedding. We did not want your typical wedding fare, and Brooke and his team did not disappoint! After the wedding, we got the kind of feedback you want post-reception:”The best food I have ever had at a wedding.” “The coordination of the folks who brought each course out was impressive!” “I seldom went a few seconds without putting something in my mouth!” “Delicious, and so unique!” “I’ve been to 100 Italian wedding hall-type weddings, and this was a stark but amazing contrast.” “This was my daughter’s first wedding, and now she will be looking for the amuse bouche at every wedding she goes to!”

The wedding was just spectacular. Everyone raved about the food. Humberto and I were so happy that we got to enjoy the delicious food as well! And the service was excellent. People were very impressed. Everything flowed perfectly as well.

My event production agency has worked with Brooke & team on a few different occasions now, and we’ve been very happy every time. Most recently they created a perfectly elegant, sophisticated, and utterly creepy menu for a horror themed press event we threw for a TV show. We appreciated their flexibility, creativity, and enthusiasm with our unique theme. The event before that was a cocktail party for a health-focused magazine, so was a very different feel, and they created an elegant, contemporary, health conscious menu that was just right for what we needed. In a city with so many options for high quality caterers, with Red Table you can trust you’ll work with great people, the planning process will be straight forward and stress free, and the food will be classy and delicious. Thanks guys!

Brooke and team were top notch in catering our housewarming/post-wedding celebration. The whole process was very easy and on the day of, they handled everything very professionally and responded flexibly throughout the day. The food was amazing! We were looking for a company specializing in small plates as it was more of a cocktail party, and they really delivered.
