Bridge Creek Catering uses the "farm-to-table" philosophy to provide memorable, handcrafted, seasonal cuisine. Our culinary expertise along with our friendly personalized service and experience in executing seamless events, allows us to translate your vision into a reality.
We love our clients.
We’ll work with you to craft an event that reflects who you are and are happy to accommodate your preferences / dietary restrictions--without compromising taste or quality.
From the planning process to the big day, we're here to help. In the office we return phone calls and e-mail quickly, listen to what you want and provide personalized proposals that reflect your vision and work within your budget. At events we are professional, attentive and do whatever it takes to make sure every guest is cared for and the event runs smoothly.
We use the Farm to Chef to Table philosophy.
Bridge Creek Catering uses seasonal, local ingredients and has supported local purveyors and Hudson Valley Farmers from the beginning - we are original farm-to-table caterers. And then we have amazing chefs that can prepare pretty much anything for any size event. Giving farm fresh ingredients to amazing chefs is what sets our food apart. So really we are farm to chef to table!
We’re great planners.
We love what we do--and it shows. From initial planning and budgeting to menu development, logistics planning and coordination of rentals to staffing the event and follow up, Bridge Creek Catering can provide as much service as you need.
Each and every event we cater is well planned and highly-organized so that there is always time for our staff to respond to those unforeseen circumstances. No one will ever need to know the florist delivered center pieces that tip over, the linen count was incorrect or the band didn’t bring extension cords. At Bridge Creek Catering we take responsibility for the entire event - no matter where the problem originates we will resolve it quickly and quietly.
We have a truly great staff.
Our employees are accommodating, experienced and engaged; we know what it takes to make any event successful and love what we do.
And we provide a Captain for each event who serves as the "day of coordinator". The services include, but are not limited to: coordinating with decorators, florists, dj's, photographers, etc.; setting up place cards, favors, table decorations; maintaining timing and flow by guiding you and your guests along the scheduled activities; overseeing the catering staff and ensuring proper setup, complete event services, and breakdown at the end.
When you are planning an important event--whether a once-in-a-lifetime wedding, a memorable social gathering or a corporate affair-- it is essential that you know, trust and respect the people you hire to assist you. Take a moment to get to know us--then say hi!

So what do you get when you hire us?
"They helped me shape my vision while considering our budget. I didn't feel like I was ever being pressured to "go bigger"- Rebi & Matt - NY, NY..
"In an effort to save some money on rentals, they were willing to work with the 60+ odd shaped dishes/platters that we had gathered up from yard sales and swap shops over the course of several months before the wedding. Everything came out beautifully prepared as though each course was made for the dish it was served in."- Cate & James - Kingston, NY.
"Our main contact at BCC was AMAZING. She was so responsive, cared very much for our needs and updated us frequently. Extremely on top of her game! That made the process so much easier. That coupled with great chefs making tasty food.. we were sold." - Cate & Steve - Rego Park, NY
"We asked them to create an avocado heirloom tomato salad with buttermilk dressing, and their chef knocked it out of the park. Several weeks later we still had guests calling us up talking about the salad. Who talks about the salad? The rest of the food was also incredible; the pork loin with apple chutney was tender and juicy, trout was touted by people who claimed to "not eat trout", and the spicy string beans and roasted potatoes were also a huge hit." Andre & Michelle - Woodbourne, NY
"Bridge Creek was also thoughtful enough to pack a full tray of leftovers which I happily devoured after getting out of my dress." Tanja & Tim - Brooklyn, NY
"They are very well-organized without being uptight. We were not organized--did not have a wedding planner or any thing close to it, were doing this very much DIY--and couldn't have asked for a better catering partner. They took charge in a helpful way but at the same time were solicitous, non-judgmental, and understanding about our occasionally anti-traditional take on things."
"They are great company to work with. They will do as little or as much as you need. If you choose a location, like we did, that required rental tables, chairs etc, they will handle everything, nothing or anything in between."
