    I said tri-tip because the wild mushroom sauce sounds very similar to your chicken option.  All your food sounds so good!  Can I come?

    I hate mushrooms (but would not expect this to be catered to at a wedding!) and you already have mushrooms in the chicken dish so I picked the tri-tip which does sound very good.  But your vegetarian option sounds delish and I would probably be tempted by that!

    I said short ribs because I like them. Maybe not the fanciest item to some but I have seen short ribs at a lot of tendy restaurants lately.

    Is there an option for neither? I would not eat either of those, personally.

    i like short ribs.  tell your family they serve short ribs in fine dining restaurants all the time.

    that being said, i don’t like mushrooms, and if you go with the short ribs, both of your main entrees have mushrooms. i would pick entrees that are different from each other.

    I personally would want to try the tri tip but I thinl the ribs sound like a safer option that will be more generally liked by more people.

    I think the tri-tip is the safer bet.  And like prior Bees said, you already have chicken and mushrooms.  As much as I LOVE mushrooms, I realy wouln’t feel like it was enough of a different option.

    I think both sound great, but since the chicken is so similar to the short ribs, I’d go for the tri tip (which is my favorite cut anyway).

    I agree with PP’s – I’d go with the tri tip so there’s a little more variety

    ETA – LOTS of my big meat-eater guests absolutely hate mushrooms, so they would definitely not enjoy the menu options.

    I think both options sounds delicious, but I picked the tri-tip only because your chicken option already has a mushroom sauce. Since lots of people are weird about mushrooms (I love them, so I’d be happy with either one!), I figured it would be nice to give them an option without it. That being said, shortribs are the bomb, and I don’t agree at all with your family when they say they’re not a good cut. Done well (which isn’t hard to do and would actually be very forgiving when produced in large quantities), they are to die for.

    Now I realize that I haven’t been helpful at all, so I say just choose the one you like best!

    TheSpecial:  I think they both sound delicious, but I voted for the marinated tri-tip, because a lot of people don’t like mushrooms.
