If you're looking for a wedding caterer, look no further

We used Pies N Thighs to cater our wedding at The Green Building in Brooklyn. Seriously, the food is ridiculous â€“ my husband and I ate leftovers at like 2 am that night and it was still amazing! Everyone was floored by the food (I mean, why wouldn't they) and it really set the tone for the night -- it was very important to me to have a chill, laid back wedding with the focus on great food and great music, and Pies N Thighs definitely did its part, above and beyond, without a doubt. They also provided us with separate entrees for our vegan/gluten free friends. I was a little worried that the food would pale in comparison (I mean, Pies N Thighs fried chicken is hard to beat), but our non-meat eating friends raved about the acorn squash dish that they prepared specially for them. In fact, one of my friends said that other guests seated at the table wanted to know where they could get some of their own! And Patty was absolutely incredible! She takes care of everything and was especially helpful when it came to rentals. If you want amazing food for your wedding, definitely go with Pies N Thighs. It was one of the best decisions I made!
Folks are still raving about that chicken...

We can't say enough good things about the Pies and Thighs experience in general, and Patty in particular. She was a total pro who went above and beyond to make sure everything went smoothly, from the tasting to the big day. She was especially indispensable when it came to helping us with rentals, an area in which we were especially clueless. Most importantly, the food and the pies were absolutely delicious. I'm sure it's slightly tastier in the restaurant, but we couldn't tell and neither could our guests, more than one of whom told us it was the best food they'd ever eaten at a wedding.
Great Wedding Caterer

Patty and her gang did a tremendous job of feeding our hungry wedding guests. Made for a perfect backyard-BBQ-style feast after the nuptials. All the menu items were a big hit, especially the Chicken Biscuits, and the Agua Frescas. Going initially to the restaurant to meet Patty and do a tasting was a blast too. Thank you, Patty and Pies 'N' Thighs!
Best wedding catering!

We picked Pies-n-Thighs for our wedding because of the great food, but didn't realize that it would come with such amazing help with the planning, organizing, set-up, serving, coordinating, etc of the actual wedding. Patty and her team went above and beyond what we were expecting- they really helped to make the evening go smoothly and we would recommend them to anyone! Plus the food was perfect- everyone told us it was the best wedding food they'd had.
fantastic wedding caterer!

Wonderful Wedding Catering

We had a great experience with Pies N Thighs as our wedding caterer this past January. They invited us for a generous tasting with the catering manager, Anne Marie, as soon as we contacted them about the possibility of working with them. They seemed eager to get our business (in a good way) and were a lot of fun. The catering team was responsible for juggling so many details of our wedding and everything went perfect. A number of guests--some of them real food snobs--said that this was the best wedding food they'd ever had. We also heard that the brisket was an all-time best for a lot of people as well (my Texan husband requested that they cut it a little thicker so that it was more like home, and they were happy to comply). We weren't excited about the idea of paying a fortune for fussy wedding food that is mediocre when mass produced--and loved the simplicity of the food on their menu. That being said, there are many options on the catering menu that change each season--you won't find them on their website. I'm a vegetarian and we wanted a menu with some meat but plenty of veggie options, and they gave us plenty of options. (Including a stuffed squash entree that was really delicious!) I'd recommend them wholeheartedly to anyone planning a wedding.
Pies n Thighs Wedding Catering!
By aquamerine on 2/18/2013
My husband and I were looking for alternative, down home and delicious food for our wedding, and Pies N Thighs was PERFECT. They were extraordinarily professional, courteous, and did a fantastic job over all. The presentation and service was outstanding, Ann Marie was instrumental in helping us with ideas for rentals (we pretty much had an almost entirely DIY affair), and 4 months later our guests are still raving that it was the best food they've ever had at a wedding. Right from the night we stopped in to do our tasting (which was amazingly generous, and super fun to boot), we couldn't have been happier. I would highly recommend them for any catered affair. And the absolutely best part of my night was when a server sought me out to give me the most delicious and anticipated bite I was waiting for all night--the chicken biscuit. HEAVEN!!
Incredible food & catering

My wife and I chose Pies n' Thighs to cater our wedding last summer and our experience with them was terrific. They were professional and accomodating, and they knew all the right questions to ask to make sure we got exactly what we wanted. The catering staff was friendly and easy to work with and the catering manager Anne Marie was great at staying in contact with me as the big day approached. Their hospitality was really above and beyond. As for the food itself - if you haven't had a chicken biscuit from Pies n' Thighs you're really missing out. The buscuit is rich and flaky, the chicken is crispy and flavorful, and the honey butter and hot sauce bring it all together for one of the best "sandwiches" in Brooklyn. As for the pies, go for the bourbon pecan - but it's my personal opinion that the donuts are the best way to end a meal here. Favorite sides would have to be the mac n' cheese with a dab of hot sauce or the baked beans. Pies n' Thighs isn't white linen dining. It's not breaking new ground in the field of molecular gastronomy. Save all that for some other time. Pies n' Thighs will fill you up and send you home happy - and they'll do it without breaking the bank!

Pies-N-Thighs catered our wedding in September. We knew we wanted delicious hearty food and that PNT would have great fried chicken. But they surpassed our expectations by miles. From our first exchange until the day after our wedding (they provided delicious and amazing looking donuts the morning after) they were so professional, warm and generous. The food at our wedding was presented beautifully and was sublime. I can't tell you how many times I heard "best food at any wedding ever!" from our guests. They also offered a perfect variety and a nice balance between yummy fried fish and chicken to tasty, healthy and colorful vegetables and salads. And people are still talking about the pies and how great they were. As for the service: Anne Marie is the events coordinator that we worked with and she truly went above and beyond. She took such interest and care in how our day played out and was an absolute delight to work with. The chefs also showed so much care and it was clear that everyone wanted our day to be great and for us to be happy. The servers that helped at our wedding were so kind, so professional and did a perfect job. Honestly, I could go on and on about what a special and wonderful experience we had with Pies-N-Thighs. I will continue to dine in their restaurant and use their catering services and wish we could do the wedding all over again exactly the same way!
A perfect wedding.

Patty and the Pies 'n Thighs team were amazing to work with. They catered our wedding of 160 this July and it could not have been a smoother or more enjoyable process. The food was top-notch -- everyone was commenting on it -- and the staff was great, too. Patty was lovely, organized, and a total delight to work with throughout the entire process. We could not recommend Pies 'n Thighs wedding catering more highly.
