Readers’ Choice: Best Catered Food in Northport

Memorial Day weekend is about tangy backyard barbecue and sweet cole slaw. But what if you can’t make it all? We want your pick for catered food joint.

Sides of mac and cheese, potato salad and cole slaw go great with any family get together. So do trays of penne alongside sausage and peppers. That’s a Long Island feast done Italian-style.

Whatever your preference, Memorial Day weekend is all about backyard gatherings of friends and family. But whether you fire up the Weber grill or channel your inner Martha Stewart, preparing the entire banquet may be too much to handle.

You’re in luck. Quality caterers abound, from the local meat market and deli to the neighborhood restaurant or grocery store.

Time to weigh in. Northport Patch is looking for the best catered food in town. Readers’ Choice is a new weekly feature where we ask you – our readers – to tell us your top picks.

Each Monday we’ll list our nominees – this week it’s catered food – and ask for your recommendation. Did we leave your go-to spot off the list? Go ahead and add it in comments.

Then vote. Readers' Choice winners are all up to you, so it's important not only to vote below, but also be sure to share this contest with your friends on Facebook and Twitter! Voting closes Friday at 9 a.m.

Friday we’ll announce our winner.

Our nominees:

I just had Nina's Catered food last night at a friends house in Dix Hill. I didn't know where the food was from until the end of the party, so I asked the host where did she get this great food from, she stated from Nina's in Northport, I said the pizzeria? She said yes. I knew they had great pizza but did not know they had great catering. I will be doing my daughter graduation from them in June.

What about Big Bear Pizzelli in east northport?!
christine sheridan May 15, 2012 at 02:20 AM
Fireside is by far the best. We have used them 6 years for every holiday (including our wedding reception back in 2007, where George handled all the details; food, drinks, staff, tent rentals and tables and chairs for 150 guests). Their food is amazing and all of our guests are always satisfied. We would never use anyone else. At the end of any function our guests always rush to get the leftover food first. Frank and Christine

my wife and I moved to the area a few months ago. We recently used Nina's to cater a party, and everyone raved about the food. Fantastic, and a wide selection too!
