Kosher Caterers- who to use?

I'm seriously considering Water's Edge in Long Island City. Somerstein Caterers is the proprietor and does the kosher catering. They used to cater at Temple Israel in Lawrence, LI. Has anyone used them in Lawrence or at the Water's Edge? Or been to an affair that they catered?

Kosher Caterers- who to use?

I have an appointment with Main Event in two weeks. Foremost is too expensive and I wasn't too happy with the various people I spoke to at Prestige. Some of the venues I am considering are the Newark Club, Glenpointe Marriott in Teaneck, and the Liberty House in Jersey City. There are lots of nice venues in NY but most are too small for the 270 people we are expecting. As far as venues with in house caterers I am also going to check out Northern Valley Affairs the caterer at Temple Emanu-el in Closter (the temple charges a site fee separate from the caterer) and Waters Edge in Queens. They are Somerstein Caterers from Lawrence LI. I expect to pay about $245pp for a Sat night or around $200pp for Sun inclusive of food and venue. If you're looking in Manhattan ask about valet parking. Some places charge a ceremony fee which can be as high as $1500. Lucky for me the in laws are helping out a bit. You don't really know what things will cost until you start researching. There are several bride magazines that list venues in a chart so you can see who allows kosher catering and other handy info. My daughter will take over from here. She was a little overwhelmed with the process but has direction now.

Kosher Caterers- who to use?

I'm planning a wedding for my daughter and have been researching sites and caterers. I've called several caterers and find Foremost ($100-$120) to be a lot more expensive than Prestige ($75). I'm still waiting to hear from Main Event. Has anyone used any of these caterers or been to affairs they've catered at? I'm curious to know why there is such a difference in price?
