julesbeeb:  I would add the starch personally. I don’t think you need a fourth appetizer or the fries with the sliders.

everything sounds great.  but you don’t jhave a vegetarian option in your apps, unless you add the asparagus tartlet. 

do your guests also have the option to have the salad without panzella?

It looks good!  I would add a potato or starch to the main course.  You may not have veggie eaters.  Also, people might need more to soak up that alcohol.

I come from the school of the more food, the merrier!  Maybe it has to do that my family is Jewish, and I’m engaged to an Italian-American.  Who knows?

julesbeeb:  Mmmmmm rosemary lamb skewers! 

Your menu looks good, I just have a few comments.

As PP mentioned, I would do a starch. Mashed potatoes or risotto are usually popular. I’m not sure if I would do pasta alongside salmon or filet. Because your veggies include potatoes, I would personally do a risotto so you don’t double up on the potatoes. 

I would do a lighter salad. Panzella can be filling because of the bread and often, people like bread rolls on the table but not soaked in a salad. Artichoke is typically not a very popular salad topper. But, you know your guests better than I do!

julesbeeb:  Whoops, just saw your comment about the salad after you posted. Much better! Just make sure you don’t have any nut allergies! (Personally, I love pecans!)

I wouldn’t add the starch since you have bread and potatoes.  I think pasta would be overkill with starch…That’s just me.  Your menu sounds yummy.

I’d want the fries with the sliders as a guest, but I love me some fries!!! Everything else sounds yummy!!!

I’d say yes to the fries if it’s in budget.  But I’m a vegeterian and I’d be sad seeing everyone enjoying their sliders- plus I love fries!!

So vegetarian upon request for the main meal but what about for the apps? Are you doing cheese & crackers or crudite or something? The apps sound AWESOME but heavy! Well… maybe not the tuna but tuna tartar isn’t for everyone.
