Social Events, Business & Wedding Caterer DC VA MD

If I could give them 10 stars I would. Seriously, they were THAT good. We hired them for our wedding reception at Top of the Town! The quality of food was amazing. The guests raved about it. My husband and I were very pleased with the overall service. They paid close attention to details and made sure everyone was satisfied. They even had a special plate and drinks made up for my husband and I immediately after the ceremony so we could enjoy some quiet time together following the ceremony before joining cocktail hour. Don't hesitate to hire them. You won't be disappointed!!!!

On behalf of the Silicon Valley Leadership Group, thank you for working with APCO to serve as our dinner host Tuesday night during our visit to DC.  As you know, we were in a challenging situation with the closure of the US Botanic Garden. Your willingness to help us find a suitable back-up venue due to the government shutdown, although we didn't end up using the Hill Center, was above and beyond the call of duty under extraordinary circumstances.  And, when we finally did settle on the location, you and your team turned things around without missing a step making the dinner possible at APCO for a memorable evening.  We offer our deep appreciation and we'll never forget your flexibility.

~All our best, Kirk

Spencer, I never thought you could get any better than perfect…but the event was PERFECT! And it was because of you and your staff. AMAZING!

Thank you from the bottom of my heart, you made me look good and I appreciate it.

~La Randa Mays - Event Planner, Supreme Court of the United States

Where do I begin?!?  The food was amazing, the MEC staff were all awesome and the attention to detail and overall decor selections for the reception were perfect!!  We hired Main Event for our wedding this past Saturday at Meadowlark Botanical Gardens and couldn't be happier with our decision.  Our event coordinator was Kara Marshall and she was just the best...she made the tasting so much fun, she worked with us to design the perfect menu for our guests and when there were last minute changes, she always made them with a smile!  We invited a large amount of people to our wedding and space was definitely a concern for the ceremony and the reception but MEC and Kara made it work!  My husband and I had an amazing wedding day and we couldn't have done it without Kara and Main Event, we would highly recommend them to anyone!  Oh and their chocolate truffles are the best! :)

Main Event makes your event their Main Event. Their truck has just pulled out of our driveway and once again, they've knocked it out of the park. We cater several parties a year (anywhere from 3-6) and in a previous life I managed corporate events for several companies, so I've worked with many higher-end caterers over the years. Of all those companies, none compares to the style and polish of MEC. I've worked with Darcy on both our events to date, and both times I've felt as though ours is the only event on MEC's agenda. Our last party was a popular Saturday night in the heart of holiday season, and I knew that they were fully booked. None of that came through to me, the client. Darcy is upbeat and has a real "can-do" attitude. I've seen her roll up her sleeves and move furniture; she's quick to follow up and respond to requests, and stays on task even when I'm not nearly as responsive as I should be (to which I owe her an apology!!). They're a team of hardworkers and every member of the team speaks highly of what a great company MEC is to work for--a happy employee is a sign of a great company.

Just as important as the service, however, is the food. My husband and I take our food seriously, and MEC's focus on top quality ingredients comes through. The food is fresh and innovative and healthy-yet-delicious options are plentiful. They're the only caterer I've ever met that recycles all the empties as a party (a pet peeve of mine--why don't other companies do this???), they grow their own herbs and greens and even keep fish and rainwater in their facility. I have never seen a bottled drink mix in their repertoire and all cocktails are made fresh from scratch. In the past, in order to have high quality cocktails from a caterer, I had to find my own recipes and prepare the "starter" myself and give mixing instructions to the bartender. Frankly, doing all that myself defeats the purpose of the bartender.

MEC makes me want to throw more parties. I rely on Yelp reviews a ton, but sadly rarely leave reviews myself (I know, a real faux pas)--I have to feel super strongly about a business to make the effort to type one up. I feel THAT strongly about MEC and their team.

We were initially going to go with a cheaper caterer but really were not impressed by their menu options - or their office to be truthful. We switched to Main Event because they seemed more polished and professional, but most importantly, they were really creative in working with us on a menu that was almost entirely vegan (with like one vegetarian option.) From the moment we went to the tasting, we felt pampered and treated well. The food was AMAZING - we were determined to have delicious vegan food and not have guests walking away thinking the food was mediocre because there wasn't any meat. Main Event provided really inventive dishes and it was just fabulous. We were operating on a relatively small budget for a wedding but they worked with us and although it cost more than we initially wanted to spend on catering, it was well worth it. We worked with Peggy who was very friendly and professional throughout. I would definitely recommend Main Event to other brides.

~ Another Happy Bride!

Please accept this thank you for your help to make our Benefit at GMU a scrumptious success!  You were so helpful about strategizing the menu.  I have worked with lots of caterers, but none that took as much time as you for our relatively small event.  Everything was expertly set up and went like clockwork.  Everyone I talked to said the food and service were fabulous and asked for the caterer’s name!

~ Mary Reyner - Development Director, The Barker Foundation

Spencer, although I did not get to see you very much because you were orchestrating behind the scenes keeping everything in sync – I did feel your presence.  Meg is wonderful, and a pleasure to work with – her presence was very reassuring that all was well.  What a great asset to your team.  Whenever I have an event in the future, you and Main Event are my “go to caterers!!!!  Words cannot convey my heartfelt appreciation for all that you did for me and Arent Fox. 

~ Leigh Perry -Arent Fox LLP

 

Absolute professionals, delicious food, fantastic service. We cannot say enough about our experience with Spencer and his team from Main Event. Our guests are still raving about the food. The service during our sit down dinner was prompt and attentive. The attention to detail was second to none. You cannot go wrong with Main Event.

~ Julie Parks

 

SPENCER!!!!!!!!!! Seriously, Spencer was one of the best parts of our wedding planning process. He is not only a complete joy to work with, but he is practical, calm, and very responsive. Everything from Main Event was flawless. The food was incredible, and the service was top-notch--just as good as any elite restaurant downtown. We had many people comment after the wedding that they loved our food. Main Event also let us purchase our own alcohol, which allowed us to save money and customize the bar to suit our guests' tastes. Overall, it was a fantastic experience. I am SO glad we booked with Main Event, and doubly-glad that we got to work with Spencer.

~ Lindsay Clayton

 

We are SO relieved we went with Main Event Catering for our wedding. The price point was higher than we originally hoped to spend, but it was worth every penny and then some. Rachael was so sweet and so helpful throughout the planning process and the food/ service/ quality of everything was just amazing. My husband and I were so well attended to during the reception, and all of my guests have raved about the food, service and presentation. We feel this was one of the best decisions we made in our wedding planning process- I'd recommend to brides everywhere to cut their budget elsewhere if they have any hesitation about the price... so, so worth it. Ask for Rachael Slockett- she was so responsive to the many, many emails we sent her way and super flexible and accommodating to our requests.

~ Meredith Green

 

Michelle and her team at Main Event are absolutely incredible - I do not even know where to start! The food was the best wedding food we and everyone else at the wedding according to the rave reviews had ever had!!!! The menu was completely customized based on our likes and dislikes and every single thing from the passed apps to the main course was cooked to perfection. The presentation was stunning and everything looked and tasted like it came straight from a 5 star restaurant's kitchen. In regards to decor, Michelle was on top of every little detail! She knew exactly what I was envisioning and the linens, chairs, table sizes, chargers, etc. were absolutely perfect. JUST PERFECT! The service was superb. The entire Main Event team and staff were courteous, prompt, and focused on keeping everyone happy. My husband and I even had our own server for our sweetheart table who was amazing!!! Michelle and her assistant were fabulous with coming up with timing and transitions and worked seamlessly with our day of coordinator. And last but not least, the cost was extremely reasonable and I doubt any other catering company could beat it for what they provided us!  If you are looking for a full service caterer, go with Main Event. They are a top notch company with the best of the best when it comes to every aspect of the industry.

~ Chelsea Zimmerman

 

Hi Spencer - I hope this email finds you well this morning.  I know that your calendar is full of events and rightly so – you are amazing.  I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciated your outstanding service last night.  You and your team are like a well-oiled machine – and there were no squeaks to be heard!!!  : )  The reception was a phenomenal success – the food was amazing – the set-up was fantastic – the music was exceptional!!!

Wow! I don't even know where to begin. I always have low expectations for wedding food but Main Event blew me away! Our event designer and main contact for our wedding reception, Spencer, was fantastic to work with. He was always energetic and genuinely excited about making our event the best it could be. He was attentive and easy to work with. The food was out of this world! Many, many quests commented at the wedding that the food was fantastic and five days later, they are still talking about it! The service was fantastic and the wait staff seemed like they truly cared about making our event special. We could not have asked for a better caterer!

~ Nicole Dueffert

 

My (now) husband is a chef so the food and booze had to be the best. The food at Main Event Caterers was exceptional. We were able to customize the open bar for our wedding. Michelle Fishman, our event designer, was a pleasure to work with. She was flexible while working with our (admittedly large) budget and quickly responded to all of my emails and calls.  Michelle and the MEC wait staff went beyond their duties to help set up our centerpieces when the florist didn’t. MEC also provided a tasteful pinecone cake-topper that fit with the look of our winter wedding when I didn’t think one through.  My husband and I and our guests were really impressed with the wait staff. Our dedicated waiter for the night was polite and attentive. When a friend had a wardrobe malfunction, one of the waitresses fixed the unraveling thread because she is also a tailor!  Main Event Caterers was absolutely central to our wedding reception being the awesome party that it was. I highly recommend them and Michelle Fishman if your budget allows.

~ Deirdre Durkin

 

The Main Event staff was fantastic and the food was absolutely delicious. Spencer and Meg went above and beyond to accommodate our every need right up until the wedding itself.  They did a great job making our simple looking hall into a beautiful venue and their wait staff was friendly and thorough.  We did a buffet, which was a great value for all the different options we were able to offer out guests.  I would highly recommend Main Events!

~ Matt & Jessie

 

Spencer of Main Event Caterers was amazing! He was easy to work with and very responsive to our emails/phone calls. The food was phenomenal and we received so many compliments on how tasty the foods were, especially the appetizers. We didn't have a day of coordinator, but Spencer was awesome in helping us out and took care of everything at the reception. Would highly recommend Main Event Caterers to anyone!!! They even ended the night with chocolate truffles for everyone! Such a nice touch!

~ Ann Margaret Galiatsos

 

We worked with Andrea from Main Event Caterers and could not have been more pleased! To this day, months after our wedding, our friends and families continue to rave about the food at our wedding. Andrea and her team listened to our ideas for the wedding and brought us great suggestions to design a wonderful meal. They were open to anything and even worked with us to pair each course with craft beer - from selecting the details of each course to ensuring we had the right service plan to execute on our vision - Andrea led a great team which led to a simply delicious and one of a kind meal. Even when our wedding day turned out to be cold and rainy, the team gave us our option B with no hiccups and delivered each course hot and steamy - quite an accomplishment with the storm that they had to walk through to the tented reception. Andrea was well organized, always available, supportive and very detail-oriented. We would highly recommend Andrea and the entire Main Event Caterers team!

~ Sara Tracy

 

We worked with Daniela from Main Event. She was wonderful to work with, and she really worked with us on pricing so that we were able to get what we wanted. The food was spectacular, best wedding food I've ever had! They also were able to tweak a few menu items and when I requested Italian Wedding Soup, were able to create that as well. The vegetarian option was also great! Would 100% recommend Main Event!

~ Jamie

 

I want to thank everyone at Main Events for the wonderful job they did at my daughter's wedding. The entire event was outside so the set up was tricky, with numerous last minute changes. Korey, the wedding day supervisor, was superb - he was flexible and handled everything beautifully in a calm efficient and professional manner. Once he got started I knew I could relax and just enjoy the whole experience. Everything looked beautiful, the food was outstanding and the servers and bar tenders were attentive and very pleasant. Everyone had a wonderful time. The clean-up was also immaculate. I would highly recommend Main Event Caterers.

~ Megan Thomas wedding

 

All I can say is AMAZING! We looked at other caterers and knew as soon as we sat down with Andrea that she would make out wedding exactly what we wanted. She was friendly, outgoing and always an email or phone call away! They provide outstanding, really outstanding food, not always the case at a wedding! I have to also mention Korey (our wedding day supervisor), every bride should request him! He talked to my husband and I the entire time, not in the way of course, just to make sure things were going the way we wanted! He was attentive and really a true professional! If you live in the NOVA area you should check out Main Event Caterers! Thank you for making our wedding day a little more wonderful!

~ Megan Thomas

 

If I could give them 6 stars, I would! Main Event is the best catering you could ask for--the food is top notch and creative without being off putting, our event designer, Spencer, was organized and responsive, and the service at our wedding was perfect. I never once had to worry about timing, presentation, or anything at all. The biggest hits, food-wise, were the mashed potatoes with brie and the mini pot pies--get them!

~ Claire Bea

 

Main Event Catering, led by Rachael, made my daughter’s wedding a truly memorable event. Before the event, Rachael was available to meet with us whenever we needed her to walk us through the catering selection process. The tasting at Main Event which was outstanding was a major factor along with Main Event’s reputation in deciding to use Main Event. On the day of the wedding, Rachael transformed the venue with its beautiful view from a basic room into a gorgeous setting. It was perfect for my daughter’s wedding. Everyone raved about the excellent food and it was so exceptional that two of my guests have contacted Main Event about catering their weddings. Rachael greeted the wedding couple at the venue with appetizers and prosecco, my daughter’s favorite, and sent them off at the end of the evening with a packed feast for afterward. Clean-up at the end of the evening went smoothly with all the decorations packed up and ready to go in a matter of minutes. It gives you a new appreciation for the industry after being responsible for the success of such an event.

~ J

We just wanted to thank Spencer and the catering crew who were at our wedding for the super job they did!!! Thank you so much for making our experience painless and easy and most of all for making our special day so wonderful! We got lots of compliments on the food :-)

~ Natalie & David

Andrea Falletti of Main Event was our contact for our daughter's recent wedding. She was exceptional. She understood our vision, came up with wonderfully creative menus and ideas to see it through, and assembled the most professional and delightful staff we have ever seen. The food was truly exquisite and our wedding guests, all very seasoned wedding attendees, said they have never in all their lives eaten such delicious food at a wedding.  All staff members were totally professional and received many compliments from our guests. This was not a small wedding and many of the guests attend a large number of catered functions. Thanks to the wonderful work and attention from Andrea Falletti, this was one of the finest events I think we'll ever see. I cannot recommend Andrea Falletti and Main Event any higher. This company and Andrea Falletti are heads above everyone else. I could tell from the moment I met Andrea and how she responded to every request that I would be able to fully enjoy my daughter's wedding and worry about nothing. She is as close to perfect as it's possible to be.

~ Celeste

We worked with Taylor Locraft at Main Event Caterers and I seriously thank her for our wedding looking as spectacular as it did. From our first conversations when we were just trying to get a quote she was extremely helpful, knowledgeable, and professional. We were planning our DC wedding at the DAR from Houston and were only there to meet with her but she did an amazing job communicating with myself and my parents via email and phone to make sure that when we did meet we were able to cover everything that needed to be covered. She helped me pick my linens, chairs, reception layout and I can't even begin to tell you how many people told us it was the most beautiful wedding they had ever been to. The food and wait staff was magnificent. They served an entire table at the same time. Main Event also made my cake. I gave them a picture of what I sort of wanted it to look like and it turned out more beautiful than I ever could have imagined...it was perfect! From the moment we walked in to the reception everything was seamless. We did not hire a wedding planner and I am so glad we didn't waste the money on one because Taylor was all we needed.
Thank you, Taylor, for making our reception more perfect than we could have every imagined!

~ Alan Kelly 

Spencer, I want to thank you for helping make my daughter's wedding so wonderful. You all did an amazing job - everything was just as we envisioned...and in some cases, even better. The food was delicious and almost every guest commented on how beautifully it was presented. Your suggestions on floor plans and layouts were perfect. We also were impressed with and appreciated the professionalism of the wait staff. Everything flowed smoothly and seamlessly. In short, once at the reception, I never worried about a detail for even a second, because it was clear your team had everything under complete control. You were a delight to work with on the planning and I hope we'll have a chance to do another event in the future.  I will recommend you without reservation to anyone!

~ Anne 

Spencer and Main Event were excellent to work with. We wanted to incorporate ethnic dishes into our dinner plan, and Spencer was excellent at understanding our thoughts and implementing this touch into our wedding in an elegant way. Also, we had several individuals with allergies and special needs diets and Spencer was receptive and excellent in his attention to these details. Our guests commented on how well the wait staff was prepared for these special diets and how seamless the service was. Spencer was very organized and fun to work with. The food was delicious as well. We had several last minute cancellations because of bad weather and Spencer was able to prepare take home meals for us. People loved the food so much the left-overs were consumed at the after-party! Thank you Spencer and Main Event!

~ Suze

OUTSTANDING.  The service they provided I cannot find enough words to describe such AWESOME service. Exceeded every expectation. The staff was professional, friendly, kind, caring. Our guests are raving about the service and attention they received. The food was unbelievable. I plan to use them for another event. Rachael Slockett was great to work with. She was extremely flexible and ensured our needs were met to our satisfaction. Her team was the best. We actually landed this company at the last minute and it was the best last minute decision I ever made. I highly recommend this company.

 

Taylor Locraft with Main Event Caterers did an amazing job with my daughter's wedding in July. All of her ideas were so creative and exactly what we were looking for to make the wedding memorable. The food was delicious, the staff was so professional in serving our guests, and the cake was spectacular! Taylor saw it through from our beginning planning stages to every detail at the Sunset Room... We highly recommend Main Event and Taylor-- you will not be disappointed!

~ Shelley

Spencer and the entire staff at Main Event Caterers made planning for my July wedding a breeze! I was planning my Fairfax wedding from the West Coast, but Spencer was more than willing to communicate via telephone and email and meet face-to-face with my mom. In fact, my sister stood in for me at the tasting with my mom since I was unable to attend. Throughout the whole process Main Event was incredibly flexible regarding this situation.  We had very few decorations at the reception hall, so the food presentation and table setup were the primary focus. I felt 100% comfortable giving Spencer creative control to make the space look simple, but elegant -- and his team pulled it off beautifully.  Throughout the evening, I felt as if I had my own personal waiter who would help me get in and out of my seat (not an easy feat in a wedding gown when everyone is clinking their glasses to see the bride and groom kiss!) and periodically checking in to see if I needed more food or drink.
The food was amazing and perfectly altered to meet my picky tastes. Once we had picked out the general type of food we wanted and one or two specific dishes, the chef was able to suggest side dishes that would pair well with our choices. We received (and are still receiving!) so many compliments on the food.  Overall, it was a wonderful experience and I would highly recommend their services to any bride, especially one overwhelmed with putting together all the details of the reception herself!

 

Spencer McCormack and his team did an amazing job for our daughter's wedding in July! Not only easy to work with, but also very calming (which is very important as you approach the 'big day'). The bride and groom were in CA; the wedding and reception were in Fairfax, VA; the guests came from all over the US. The food was delicious and plentiful and the presentation was perfect! The staff was incredibly attentive; the bride said she felt like she had her own personal caterer, making sure she was taken care of the entire evening. As the parents of the bride, we felt like we were guests at our own party! We could relax and enjoy the evening -they took care of everything! Without hesitation, I would recommend Main Events Catering!

~ Kathy  

I recently held my reception at the Corcoran Gallery of Art with 240 guests. This venue had many challenges and restrictions (not to mention a lot of guests to attend to) but Michelle Fishman and her team at Main Event Caterers worked up their magic and made it happen. I had a modern Afghan wedding and they were able to incorporate all the details into their services. They provided such great service and attention to details. Our guests repeatedly mentioned how attentive the staff was to every detail. It was both a pleasure and peace of mind to work with such a great team. I never thought I would feel so calm on the day of my wedding and believe it or not everything went perfectly. Michelle was very informative and many times provided suggestions based on her experiences and worked with my requests to make it all come together so beautifully. The food was amazing and the presentation was absolutely perfect!!!   I highly recommend Main Events for any couple that wishes to have a peace of mind and beautiful wedding. You will not be disappointed!! It will be more than what you expected!

~ Tami

"From the minute we arrived at River Farm it was obvious that everything you did was a work of genius.  The tables were set perfectly, the dessert room was set up as promised, the cocktail hour ran smoothly, the servers were fantastic, and most importantly, the food was absolutely delicious! "
~ Adrienne Umansky

"We can’t begin to put into words how pleased we are at the job you and your crew did for Maggie’s and Matt’s wedding last Saturday.  The rave reviews just keep on comin’.  Thank you so much for your professional expertise in making their day so elegant and memorable.  Some people have actually said they’ve never been to a more beautiful wedding, and that’s due in great part to you, your staff and Main Event."

~Jane and Tom Fagan

"It was a fantastic evening (at the Torpedo Factory)! Everyone commented on how wonderful and attentive your staff was.  The food was amazing and a huge hit! I cannot thank you enough for all of your hard work. We are definitely devoted Main Event fans and hope to work with you for other life events in the future."

~Lauren and Paul

"Thank you so much! We had so many compliments about the food, you were wonderful to work with, and the whole staff was amazing. What a great night it was, sentimentally AND gastronomically. Martin's best man commented; " I wanted to mention how impressed I was by all the details. The logistics were amazing, no glitches, everything close by, the food was delicious (rarely true). . .".  Thank you so much for all your help and for making our wedding as fun and delicious as it was."

~Saskia

"Before the glow of the Gala has worn off I wanted to send you a big THANK YOU to you and everyone at Main Event from all of us at the Partnership. The rooms looked great, staff was wonderful, and of course, the food was amazing!  Thanks for all of your patience and hard work over the past few months. The weather even cooperated with us for a bit and everyone seemed to really enjoy themselves. "

~ Emily Mah, Glen Echo Park Partnership for Arts & Culture, Inc.

"Thank you for all you did to make Sid's party at our home so wonderful.  You have such a great style and grace.  It was a pleasure to work with you and your "team" at the party.  I got  totally spoiled! "

~Laurie S.

"The event last night was lovely and our group had a great time! Thanks for everything. Our director was especially impressed with your (compostable) plates and forks…He’s now interested in keeping a stock on hand for last minute donor lunches, etc. Thanks again for all your help and we look forward to working with Main Event again in the future!"

~Special Events Manager, Local DC Gallery

"Thank you for the amazing job you and your team did last night for our "Presidential Courage" dinner at our Corcoran branch.  Everything about the evening was perfect, from the linens, to the menu cards, to the delicious and beautifully presented food, to the impeccable service.  I have heard nothing but compliments all day from our president and others who attended.  They were especially impressed with the white-glove service. Thanks to the attention to detail by you and your team."

~Sonia B. McCormick, VP, Corporate Communications Manager, PNC Bank

"As I said to the staff on site at the end of the evening - Main Events is a huge part of the year after year success of our holiday party, and we really appreciate all that you do.  The staff was very accommodating.  They shared our extra meals with the band, sent me home with some leftover appetizers, were able to put together a table last minute to set-up our projectors, adjusted the number of chairs at each table according to our last minute cancellations, etc. Also, I'd like to send a big thank you for helping us pick the perfect site."

~Jennifer Korbich, Excella Consulting

"Environmentally-friendly and delicious! I would like to share with you my experience with Main Event Caterers. I hired them for a large business event and was thrilled with the experience. The food and service were amazing. More importantly, though, as an environmentally conscious person, I was so happy to learn that Main Event Caterers is eco-friendly. They are 100% wind powered, carbon neutral and recycle all of their waste, even using alternative disposables for their organic waste. They're also very passionate about educating everyone about how to become more environmentally responsible, clients included! I strongly recommend Main Event Caterers. They're located in Arlington, VA and serve the metropolitan area."
~ Monica in Falls Church, VA

"From top to bottom Main Event has it all. They take care of their clients, have amazingly creative Event Designers, a great staff that make the vision a reality, and of course, the food to die for. Main Event is a cut above the rest!"
~ Lee-Ann Forsythe

"Everything they do is of the highest quality, from the presentation to the wait staff. Most important, however, their food is outstanding and innovative. I would walk a mile on my knees for whatever Joel Thevos and Nancy Goodman serve."
~ Dr. George Davis

"The food selection is out of this world, they are all about service, customer needs and requirements and deliver what they promise. Great staff, friendly, accommodating, they really know how to put on an event, making your job easy, stress free. The ultimate professionals."
~ Carol Moore

"Simply saying thank you doesn't really capture how significant it is to me to have had everything work out so well, but I am at a loss for a better expression... so, until I can come up with a better articulation, THANK YOU to you, the chef, and everyone at Main Event that helped us pull off a wonderful evening!"
~ Laura Brown

"We wanted to say thank you to you and everyone on your staff for the best reception we could imagine. The food was excellent, the service was impeccable, and your overseeing it all was absolutely perfect! Truly, we can't say enough to thank you for everything you did!"
~ Judy McGinley

"I work for The Washington Post company and consulted our Event Planning person after being frustrated by some of the other "top tier" catering companies. Either the menus were so-so or the pricing was extremely high. Our Events Manager told me that after working with everyone in town, her personal opinion was that Main Events was the best. We attended a tasting at Main Event after visiting four or five other caterers. The food at Main Event was by far the best, it blew me away and, more importantly, blew my fiancé (the food connoisseur) away."
~ Sherrese M. Smith-Heyliger, Deputy General Counsel, Washingtonpost Newsweek Interactive, LLC

"Your company recently catered a reception for my Association and it was terrific. The food received rave reviews and the staff was phenomenal. I would say they went out of their way for me, but I suspect they treat all their customers with the same level of professionalism and helpfulness. Their attentiveness made the evening run smoothly and left time for me to attend to other things."
~ Renee LaMura, Director of Member Services, PIMA

"I have worked with Main Event Caterers for several years. Their quality of service is extremely professional and very detail oriented. They are able to cater to a vast array of clientele not only with their cuisine but also with their full-service staff. Their staff is extremely creative and organized. They always have innovative ideas and are able to provide the utmost experience for the client, I sincerely recommend Main Event to any organization or company searching for first rate quality and service."
~ Marjory Zimmerman, Manager of Special Events, The Corcoran Museum of Art

"The food, décor, furniture, sketch artists, historical factoids, handsome servers, shiny silver - all were just right. Our guest were unanimous in their praise for the occasion."
~ Dr. Donn Murphy, Executive Director, National Theatre
