Elegant Eating - The perfect name for a most wonderful and memorable experience. My daughter surprised me with an Elegant Eating cooking class gift for her and I to attend. We decided, after considering all of the wide variety of cooking classes offered, to attend the New York Steakhouse one. I must tell you, as a reviewer/critic in the hospitality industry, I was more than impressed from beginning to end. Upon entering, we were greeted by the owners, offered delicious appetizers and fresh lemonade and entertained in a stunning, beautifully decorated dining room. We then went to the kitchen area, which was spotless, where Myra ( owner and head chef for very good reasons ) and her chefs visually and verbally showed us how we were going to prepare each part of the menu. We then broke up into groups whereby each group had to prepare that particular part of the dinner. We were then asked to return to the lovely, I mean lovely, dining room where we were served, course by course, the dinner we had all prepared. The presentation of each course was picture perfect. It was fun, a great learning experience and delicious! I am thrilled to have experienced this with my daughter as it adds to our legacy of beautiful memories. I am definitely a returning customer and I will also be buying birthday and Christmas Elegant Eating cooking class gift certificates for family and friends. This is an excellent gift idea. I highly recommend Elegant Eating! Thank you to my daughter for surprising me with such a perfect, unique gift and to Neil and Myra for being the designers of this wonderful idea.

Neil and Myra have been handling all our catering items since about 1988. The started in their earlier small store and included regular Friday Night Dinners. I know the date as the first catering was for my daughters Bat Mitzvah. This followed with my Son's Bar Mitzvah, some major Birthdays, High Holidays, returns from funerals and Passover. We moved from Stony Brook to Great Neck and could find good but not great local places.

Obviously we are always happy with the arrangements.

Dear Myra,
Our party was a huge success. Thank you for spending the time planning a perfect menu. Our guests loved it. Best of all, your server performed magic. I was able to entertain my guests and watch my friends and family enjoy a wonderful meal. Hope to have many more successful parties in the future.
Best Regards,

Neil and Myra,
Our staff were raving all day about what an amazing evening they had (and the moms and the one husband) last night at our class and dinner. Thank you for so much for having us. We all truly enjoyed ourselves, learned new and excellent things, and ate a phenomenal meal! Some of the ladies are already planning to attend future classes with you! And we will certainly do the same. Thank you for taking such great care of our "family" on our special night out with you. It was a wonderful and memorable evening. Delicious!
All the best!

Hi Barbara and Neil,

The shower was a huge success. Food was phenomenal, my guests were so impressed! Linda and Roberto were great. I really felt like a guest at my own party. I had some guests with gluten allergies, and Linda couldn't have been more accommodating. Neil, the food suggestions you made were perfect, right down to the mini ice cream sodas. I am already planning another party for my birthday and will want Linda and Roberto. I can't thank you enough for such a wonderful catering event. See you soon.

All 14 of us had a BLAST, and even the guys said they learned some very useful techniques!

You, Neil and the entire staff are so much fun to be with and know exactly how to teach at all levels. THANK YOU SO MUCH - we really appreciated the way u flexed for our vegetarians.

We will be back to do another private class soon.

Hi Myra,

Just wanted to thank you and your staff for everything.

Luis and Marisol were wonderful. They fit right in. Didn’t know what to expect having never done something like this before. They came in and took over and we didn’t have to do a thing.

My family was delighted and the children in awe!

The food, of course, was delicious.

Thanks so much to all of you for helping make this birthday very special.

Diner was delicious as usual! Elegant Eating has come to my rescue 3 times this month! Don't know what I would do without you.

Due to physical issues I am not able to entertain without help…. and Elegant Eating is that help!

Thank You & Happy New Year!

Jeanne Kaufman

And Special Thanks to Neil for calling on the morning of the 27th and taking special care to see that I would be able to eat all of the cooked food that you were to deliver that afternoon…. and I did!

Hi To All,

I wanted to thank everybody for an amazing Thanksgiving Dinner! Besides making my life easier, it was by far the best turkey ever! Absolutely delicious, my family kept trying to guess what brand it could possible be! Either way it was more the preparation I'm sure!

I can't wait for next year, to have Thanksgiving again. Everything was so easy to heat up and serve!! I give you 5 Michelin Stars!! PS I will be signing up for the Mediterranean cooking class!

Thank you for a unforgettable Holiday.

Hi Barbara & Myra:

We just wanted to let you know that everything your people cooked up (from the clams casino to couscous to the chicken wellington to all the great desserts) was simply delicious, with one thing tasting even better than the next. Delicious fare, well presented.

Best of all, our server and prep person, Judy H., was just great. Very efficient, personable, and always helpful. Quite a nice person, a real asset to our party (and to Elegant Eating too).

Great job by all.

Thanks again,
Ken & Lesa

We had Elegant Eating cater my daughter's bridal shower last year. It was a pleasure. All the food was delicious, we had some vegan dishes as well! Judy came along and took care of the party. She was amazing!

I attended your cooking class last night, Oct. 10. I thoroughly enjoyed the lesson, the preparation of the meal and dining with the participants in the class. I will be attending this class again, you made us all feel welcome, and made the experience very rewarding. Thank you.

Good afternoon Myra,

I apologize for the delay in sending this to out to you, but I am finally getting around to it despite that it's been a priority:)

I just wanted to thank you and let you know how wonderful everything turned out for my mom's surprise party. Everything I hoped for came to fruition. The food was fantastic, the presentation was to match. Linda and Luis were by far the best servers we have ever had and we used to entertain a lot. Your suggestion on the terrine was perfect - I have cravings for that every day!

We will be back for future occasions. And again, thank you and your staff for really keeping things just the way it should be - elegant and tasty.

Once again, our guests spent an evening in our home praising every item eaten and asking who catered the event. Elegant Eating, Myra, and every staff member contributed to THE BEST of everything. They are all wonderful, warm, experienced professionals. I was a guest at my surprise party for my husband's birthday because Gary and Judy did everything and then some. Candles were lit, drinks were served, every dish displayed beautifully, cold food cold, hot food hot, etc. etc. etc.

It is with heartfelt gratitude that we write to thank you for the absolutely fabulous job you did to cater our grand opening event.

Additionally, your staff was attentive, polite and a pleasure to work with.

Thank you to everyone at Elegant Eating for making our event a success!

We look forward to working with you again in the future!

Dear Myra and Neil,

I want to thank you for helping make my goddess party a tremendous success.

From start to finish the process was warm, friendly, intelligent and expert.

First visiting you at your Smithtown location, I felt absorbed into a wonderful world. Given eggplant appetizer, and fruit cup I was taken. The tour of the kitchen and garden sent my heart soaring. Seeing how you both are still so innocent in a fast paced world such as catering is encouraging and inspiring.

The day of the party went exactly according to plan. The display of food was enchanting. The taste delicious.And through your expert guidance in menu selection, it was just the right amount.

And now for the support staff at the party, Linda and Gary. I felt like I had two angels surrounding me. Always there when needed, and always going above and beyond. Kaneez was a wonderful presence as well.

Thank you again. I look forward to having another party, you make it so easy.

Take care,

Hi Myra,

My son's graduation party was wonderful! The food was delicious, I got so many compliments and the staff was so professional. They were attentive to all of the guests and did a great job with setting up, serving and cleaning up. I gave your name out to many people and look forward to using you again.

The food was talked about the next day. The nacho shooters were a big hit, the lobster rolls were the best we have ever had - so many big chunks of lobster meat! We took the leftovers to the ocean the next day!! What a treat! The watermelon and goat cheese canapes were so refreshing. Everyone loved the ice cream soda floats and chocolate chip cookies and milk, and the fruit cups all went quickly! I thought I would have a lot of leftovers, but I had 20 kids stay into the night and they polished off the rest! Sliders and pulled pork were a hit!! And although I didn't taste them, I overheard someone say that it was the best grilled cheese he ever had! I didn't know you could do that with grilled cheese.

Also, the tent company you recommended were very professional. The tents were beautiful and everyone commented on how pretty they were.

Thank you for such a wonderful job. It was so nice to relax and enjoy my guests and put it all in the staff's hands, and especially nice to come into a cleaned kitchen!!
