New Prospect Park Caterers
May 23, 2018
Prospect Park Alliance, the non-profit organization that sustains Prospect Park, has announced a new roster of caterers for weddings and special events at the Prospect Park Boathouse and Picnic House.
Built in 1905, the Boathouse in Prospect Park is a Beaux Arts building with beautiful floor-to-ceiling windows, a Guastavino tile ceiling, a hand-painted mural, a covered balcony and large terrace overlooking the scenic Lullwater and Lullwater Bridge. It was one of the first buildings in New York City to be declared an historic landmark. Due to its landmark status, Prospect Park Alliance has selected an exclusive caterer for this venue: Purslane, by the team behind well-loved Brooklyn restaurants Rucola, June and Metta. The Boathouse is available spring through fall for daytime and evening rentals, and can accommodate up to 150 guests for a seated dinner and dancing.
The Prospect Park Picnic House, built in 1927, is a 4,000-square-foot, Renaissance-Revival building with a terracotta tile roof, floor-to-ceiling windows, and French doors that lead to a small terrace. The Picnic House is situated on a knoll overlooking the picturesque 90-acre Long Meadow, and boasts sweeping views and light-filled interiors, as well as charming details such as a wood-burning fireplace that make it an ideal venue year round. The space can accommodate up to 175 guests for dinner and up to 240 for cocktail parties. The Alliance offers several catering options at the Picnic House, including Bension Kohen Caterers (Glatt Kosher), Bon Soir Caterers, Food Trends Catering & Events, Purslane and Simply Divine (Glatt Kosher).
