New York Ideas We Love

Do Good, Eat Well

We found a caterer who appeals to our desire to support sustainability and dine indulgently. Not only does the "farm to table" ethos of Fancy Girl Catering, 718-422-9151,, result in socially conscious vegan and organic wedding meals, but it also appeals to foodie couples longing for completely custom menus. As partner Heather Umlah says, "nothing is standard." Umlah and owner Jeanette Maier began catering for fashion and beauty corporate clients, then expanded into weddings. Some favorite foods include flat bread pizzettes with smoked pear, duck bacon, fig puree and Italian mountain gorgonzola, and a salad with caramelized pumpkin, edible nasturtium flowers and shaved manchego cheese in a champagne quince vinaigrette.
