Weddings & Social Events
Manhattan Penthouse on 5th Avenue is a beautiful, elegant, airy space for wedding ceremonies and receptions on Fifth Avenue just off Union Square hub. We offer exclusive use of the entire 8000 square foot penthouse floor. Our walls are mainly giant Palladian windows with sweeping views of iconic real estate giving our space a feeling of endless dimensions. How great to be surrounded by family and friends, with the city wrapped around you!
Monika Nemeth and Jeno Steiner, our wonderful catering executives, professionally trained in college for our exciting business. For twenty years they have helped our brides with choices along the way and then commanded the event. Social networks reveal their praises, along with our catering team and venue. We are known for being professional, reachable, and fun to work with.
Our company has catered to homes, offices, and rented venues since 1973, and our eclectic menus, reflecting the global culinary evolution, contain favorite choices from decades of change. Our French chef, Noga Andriani, trained in Nice, has been at our culinary helm for twenty-five years, producing signature dishes beautifully and generously presented.
Our dream for decades was to have our own private venue where we could create our fine cuisine as well as design a modern loft-like space with handsome traditional details. Searching high and low, we found our amazing site, and we turned former Readers Digest offices into a glamorous event venue.
ARE WE PERFECT?
Catering foods and designing spaces are all about searching for perfection, as any chef or architect can tell you. Creative perfection may be difficult in a world of different and changing tastes. But our passion, truly, every day, is to come as close as possible. Our professional service of beautiful plates of food is very satisfying for guests.
VALUE AND AFFORDABILITY?
We have been told many times that we produce a top value in terms of quality and generosity. But there are certain dates when we can do better, and our executives can guide you.
PRIVATE PARTIES OF MANY KINDS
For bar and bas mitzvah, medical school graduations, school proms, college reunions, private lunches and dinners, daytime and evening events, Manhattan Penthouse is a handsome, comfortable and different kind of space to meet and greet, eat and drink, with friends, family, and colleagues. Children love our space. We have years of experience catering in many styles, sequences and spacial layouts.
DAYTIME EVENTS CAN BE EXTRAORDINARY
Our many huge arched Palladian windows and views make our space an airy, exciting delight in the daytime for small or large gatherings of many kinds, including wedding receptions and mitzvahs.
