    @ZomBee:  This is making me hungry! Do you think you should offer a vegetarian option? If so, you cn’t go wring with eggplant parm 🙂

    I would go with a simple chicken, like the oven roasted or Kiev, something that everyone would like. With some sort of potato and then a green veggie- the green beans almondine sound yummy 🙂

    Do you have any vegetarians? If you’re already offering beef, I would cross out all of the beef and pork options. Chicken is probably the safest unless you have a lot of veggie guests. I’d go with the chicken florentine, scampi, or francese.

    Yum… It all sounds pretty good. No wonder you had difficulty choosing!

    I voted chicken, as I agree with PP- you really do need a chicken if you’re offering a beef. Some people are funny about red meat, but rarely do you find a meat eater who doesn’t eat chicken. 

    Do you have any vegetarians? The eggplant parmigana sounds divine as does the vegetarian lasagne.

    I would love (and would probably be tempted to choose from) one of the many more elaborate and more savory (to me) options. However, I think one of your safest choices would be the oven-roasted chicken breast, a potato selection (red bliss may be the safest option), and green beans. (The almondine may be an issue if you have guests with nut allergies, though.)

    I had Chicken Kiev! Be careful though – the traditional kind that’s a ball that you cut into and butter pours out (mmmmmm) is delish but messy! Ours was already sliced up and everyone loved it, a few relatives told me they were happy it was already sliced. If you’re Russian then this is the perfect option. Otherwise I would do the oven baked one.

    I personally would also have the lobster ravioli, or at least a veggie ravioli for vegetarians.

    For side dishes, one of the potatoes (either scalloped or twice-baked) and one of the hot veggies (I would do the ratatouille or green bean almondine).

    But overall, wahatever tastes best at the tasting! For all the fancy descriptions and details (“New York Marinara” is one example of them trying to make stuff sound far more interesting than it really is) the taste is what maters, especially in a catering setting. I find most caterers destroy cream-based sauces during actual events.

    I would do the Chicken Francese and then for the sides a veggie and a pasta – if you’re not having an actual vegetarian entree I feel like you should have pasta as a side.
