    @Penelopeee:  They all sound great! I am a veggie too (but eat fish) and I am constantly attending events where there are NO veggie friendly dishes, so props to you for choosing something for the veggies too! 

     

    On a veggie perspective, the veg spring rolls would be great as non-veggies like those too!! Also the Tuna on wonton sounds amazing!

    They all sound good. The only two I was meh about was the goat cheese phyillo cup and the blue cheese fig tarlet because they seem lackluster compared to the rest of the options. Lots of exciting choice. I would probably do the the srping rolls or samosas for sure as a true veggie option.

    vegetarians don’t eat fish. People who eat fish but not other meats = pescetarians. Fish = animal/meat. Vegetarian = don’t eat animals/meat. Drives me crazy when people are all “i’m a vegetarian but I eat fish”, lol.

    They all sound good, but i’m iffy on the wild game meatballs. If you have 6-7 other options, though, and they are clearly labeled wild game, that shouldn’t be a big deal. I can see people being weird about the wild game option.

    Well I’m not a vegetarian but I’m allergic to at least 4 of those. I’m allergic to fish and most seafood. Shellfish and fish are super common food allergies so you might want to keep that in mind and not go too seafood heavy.

    @crayfish:  THANK YOU!  I hate when people say they are vegetarian but eat fish.  It confuses people.  The term pescetarian exists for a reason.

    @Penelopeee:  I was going to say 6, but I think fewer would be okay. Personally, I might eat 2 or 3 pieces (unless I came across something I really loved, LOL!) but I can imagine some guys might eat 5 or 6 or even more. Maybe 5 per person and then that would sort of even out?

    I’ll tell you what I didn’t pick:

    – spring rolls – they can often be soggy and gross

    – beef satay – I’m allergic to peanuts so that sauce wouldn’t work for me

    Stuff I did pick:

    both the tuna and crab cakes so you’d have some seafood options

    The scallop and bacon one because bacon 🙂

    The fig and blue cheese tart (that combination of savory and sweet – yum)

    The beet macaroon because that just sounds interesting, plus it’s a veg option

    The sliders – most people like those

    I picked:

     

    – crabcakes because they’re classy and classic. there’s a reason they got the most votes, [almost] everyone is always happy with them

     

    – beet macaroons because that is so unique! they seem like the best veggie + cheese option to me, before i saw it i was a little dissapointed that you didn’t have a good fresh veggie option (not in fried or starch form like the spring rolls or samosa).

     

    – wild game meatballs because again, meatballs are classic and i like that these have a twist to them. whatever you do, i would choose only one of your game/vension options.

     

    – duck confit on potato because fancy and yum.

     

    – smoked salmon on crepes because they sound nice and light and i’m russian so it begs for me to vote for it. i was between that and the tuna, either would be great.

     

    i would NOT do the cheese in phyllo cup because that’s boring in comparison to everything else, and you have a bunch of spicy sounding options (the quesadillas, satay, jalapeno scallops) that anti-spicy people like me would stay away from
