Classics Reinvented

Since 1997, Bartleby & Sage have catered thousands of unforgettable events across New York: We rocked out a star-studded MTV Awards afterparty for thousands of ravenous celebs. With Matthew David Celebrations, we transformed New York’s Hammerstein Ballroom into a rainforest for a benefit hosted by Sting and Trudie Styler. We even crafted a head-turning Marie Antoinette-themed dessert extravaganza for designer Philipp Plein. For us, no request is too outrageous, no vision too grand, no detail too small. The best part? Our meticulous care of your event.

As your conscientious caterer, Bartleby & Sage relish creative challenges. We have concocted a mouth-watering Sans Rival cake for a Filipino bride, beautiful Javaher Polow for some Persian weddings and Haitian griot for a Caribbean feast. No matter what your event entails, the expert team at Bartleby & Sage will be there from start to finish.

We will find the perfect venue, help you conceptualize the theme and decor, create tasty food using the best local ingredients, source the music, floral design and photography. All you’ll have to do, really, is enjoy the accolades.
