    I think either option you choose would be great! Also at $25pp I would go for it!!

    It’s a great deal but if you go with it, you may want to include the menu in your invitation. I wouldn’t eat any of it (i’m super picky) so I would want to know that I should eat something before coming.

    It’s a great offer from your friend, and while I’d find something to eat from the list, I know people who wouldn’t like it and would yearn for something “basic” (chicken, pork). Fiance would be at a loss because he doesn’t like seafood or beans. And I’m not a fan of the dessert options. Is there a way to ask your friend to include a “basic” choice, like chicken/pork and say, maybe cupcakes?

    sounds great. Go for it. Just make sure that everything is spelled out. You don’t want to lose a friend becuase of a catering misunderstanding.

    I think it sounds great! Do you know if any vegetarians will be in attendance? Will there be some kind of main that they can eat?

    @mightywombat:  Just what I was thinking! As a veggie, I love look of the desserts though! Plus the yummy champagne cocktails…mmm.

    I agree with PPs. While it looks amazing, I’m kinda picky so potentially wouldn’t like the mains, but if I knew that ahead of time I would load up on nibbles. They’re usually the best anywyay! And you can’t beat that price!

    I wouldn’t eat any of it, other then the house salad, but I’m a picky eater sometimes. But for that price it sounds like a great deal.

    I like the menu a lot especially since it is unique and the desserts sound awesome! However, some things to consider:

    1) Are there vegetarians? They won’t have much to choose from that is filling and this is assuming the house salad is vegetarian.

    2) Are your guests adventurous eaters or do they at least eat all sorts of protein? Seafood can be sketchy territory as a lot of people are like, “EWWW. I hate seafood”. I personally like it, but a lot of people I know don’t, or are very selective – e.g. just fish, no shellfish. Plus, your land-based protein is pork-based and that can be sketchy territory too, as some religions prohibit the consumption of that. But if you don’t have anyone like that, you’re okay.

    3) What kind of hors d’eouvres are you expecting? For the people who plan to load up on that, then you may want to consider a few vegetarian items and maybe some chicken.

    Sounds good and I am LOVING the bratwurst as a midnight snack! Seriously, drunk brats are the BEST!

    Yes, please do something chicken or vegetarian!! Not a fan of that bean one.

    I could probably deal with it, but I’d be really wishing there were a chicken dish.  Seafood stew is questionable and I wouldn’t touch the porchetta (I looked it up…fatty pork?  I cannot deal with fatty meat).  My fiance would not eat anything except maybe the appetizers and some of the desserts.
