"My company provides daily lunches for the staff. We have used B.Lin now several times and are rapidly moving to using them as much as possible. The food is extremely fresh (locally sourced when possible), well prepared and delicious. B.Lin has always been on time, have set everything up and are just really nice people to deal with. Hands down the best reviews from my staff of any caterers we've used (including the big boys like Windows, etc.). Pricing is highly competitive and their invoicing is accurate. The cherry is also being able to support a local, independently owned business."
"If you need a catering team that is professional to work with, makes delicious food and will go above and beyond your expectations to make your event a success, look no further!"
"Finally a D.C. company that doesn't act like they are doing you a favor by hiring them!"
"On the day of the wedding, their staff served us with grace and professionalism. They helped make our wedding day exactly how we envisioned. We couldn't imagine a better caterer!"
"B. Lin Catering is phenomenal! We worked with Ben and Arin to cater our wedding in March and were so impressed by their business. We heard about Ben through a friend and love his business model. He cares for the DC community and serves it through his hiring and his generous donations. This is one of the main reasons we decided to go with B. Lin Catering. But it also doesn't hurt that this is the best food we have ever tasted!"
"As an event planner, I work with multiple catering companies, and B. Lin is one of the best! The staff were extremely thorough in their set-up and clean-up, served delicious food (despite our extreme space limitations,) and kept the guests happy and full. Everyone was pleasant to work with and very respectful of the venue. Plus, the food tasted very fresh-- I recommend the gouda mac and cheese and the beef/hamburger sliders!"
"I've had Ben cater three events for my organization and I've been to one of his supper clubs. His food is consistently delicious and he has a wide variety. I've had everything from Southern BBQ, to a Saint Patrick's Day themed lunch, to the Vietnamese Supper Club - all delicious. Beyond the food, Ben and his staff are always professional, kind, and just awesome people. He is very intentional about giving back to the community and supporting local groups that are bettering DC."
"Possibly the best kept secret in DC!"
"I loved the attention to detail and desire to create something more than just an interesting menu. Ben and his amazing team were warm, hospitable and wonderful. They clearly have a real passion for food and community."
"If you're looking for catering of any sort, go with the company that's going to give you A+ quality food and A+ quality service at a reasonable price."
"They were the only consistently stress free part of our wedding planning."
"Arin, (I don't know her official title so I'll call her B. Lin's event-planner/organizer/problem-solver/all-around-awesome-person)"
"But the whole time we were doing those other tastings we just couldn't stop thinking about B. Lin's food. Meanwhile, Arin kept in constant contact with us. She was extremely patient, not pressuring us to make a decision at all, even though our wedding date was just around the corner. She was extremely responsive, usually getting back to us immediately. The decision to go with B. Lin came down to three things: 1) B. Lin's food was superb (hands down best out of all the places we tried); 2) the price was reasonable; and 3) Arin had impressed us with her competence up to that point so we felt we could trust her to get everything right on biggest day of our lives."
"I can honestly say that B.Lin exceeded all my expectations. First and foremost, Ben (chef, owner) and Arin (coordinator) are two of the nicest people I've ever met. It's obvious that Ben loves his craft and is open and flexible to adjusting the menu to how you envision. Arin was the most organized catering coordinator I've ever worked with (I have 5+ years of event planning experience, so I've seen a lot), her proposals were extremely detailed and always incorporated my (many) changes."
"Absolutely excellent! We've never had anything catered before, and we wanted to have a 40-or-so person party in our house without having to do all the cooking. B.Lin delivered, and how. From helping decide what/how much to order to spotting (and filling) such needs as disposable chafing dishes to helping set things up, we couldn't have asked for more. The fact our friends kept telling us how much they loved the food made us all the happier we worked with Ben and crew. To top it all off, everything we ordered was awesome -- the pork belly sliders are the sort of thing you'd easily pay top dollar for as an appetizer at DC restaurants. The combination of a thick slice of roasted pork belly with a crunchy carrot slaw is nothing short of perfection. Bottom line: you simply cannot go wrong with B.Lin."
"I cannot recommend this place enough!! We hired B.Lin for an annual public charter school gala. I worked with Arin and she is a total rock star! She responded to emails within minutes which made it really easy to make last minute changes and plan a large school function. The food....what can I say about the food. It is 5 star amazing! I got dozens of compliments throughout the night with how delicious everything was. We got a cocktail type menu. The butternut squash wontons were a hit! There was plenty of food. The bartenders and servers were very attentive. We plan on using B. Lin from here on out and will even plan our date around their availability. That's how great they are!!"
"Overall, I highly recommend you consider B. Lin Catering for your next event (wedding, party, gala), but particularly your wedding. You'll get a customized, thoughtfully crafted menu, delicious food and top-notch service, all at a reasonable price."
"We had the opportunity to work with Ben and Arin for our wedding in DC in March 2015. The food and service were superb! Our guests raved about the food throughout the event and after. Ben's cooking is truly inspired."
"Overall, this team of young individuals along with the entire staff are truly an example of what a catering company should be. The entire serving staff including the bartender were super hospitable to my husband, my family and friends and I at the wedding. They helped a LOT, they did more than they had too. I have to point this out( a little true story).... I was impressed... I was so busy enjoying my wedding, but at one point I looked around and saw the staff helping to light our tiki torches. I was very appreciative of all of that and more."
"We eat with our eyes first and truly that is where the feasting begins with B.Lin Catering. At the three different supper clubs I've been to, the food was arranged gorgeously (instagram-worthy) but even then, the aesthetics are only the beginning... One can taste the care and passion that goes into the food. I've never had a dish that was uninspired or plain. B.Lin's food tantalizes the palette with such clever wit and character. It is as though the food puts forth a personality of its own--one that desires to impress and to satisfy--and succeeds. Even beyond the food, the B.Lin team has consistently provided excellent service. The delightful chemistry within the B.Lin team is akin to that of a rowdy but loving family. I look forward to working with them all to cater my upcoming wedding. My guests deserve no less than the best, and with B.Lin there is no doubt that the food will be an absolute hit!"
