    for me, it’s a tossup between the chicken oscar and the charbroiled beef tenderloin. They both looks so good, I can see why it’s a tough choice!

    #2 or 3.  Chicken always seems to come out dry to me.  I think steak is pretty easy to make and hard to screwup, so I rather eat something that I cant make.

    I concur, loovee duck. 

    Now, the Chicken Oscar sounds deelish, but I don’t think you should have 2 poultries.  So either the catfish or the tendrloin, but I think I’m leaning toward the catfish.

    I’d say no chicken, just because you’re already doing poultry with the first choice.  The shrimp and grits sounds awesome to me, but I’m sure the tenderloin would also be a popular choice.  I’m so hungry now!

    I’d be all over the shrimp and grits. Since you are having gumbo as a starter, this seems the obvious choice if you want to continue on that vein. My next choice would be the Tenderloin of Beef. I wouldn’t go with the chicken, since you are having Duck as your first choice and that is already in the poultry family.

    I’d say either the shrimp (my vote) or the catfish.  And OMG, I want that duck RIGHT NOW! Great choice!

    I will always pick steak, hands down 🙂 Your menu sounds fantastic, by the way!

    I say steak because I’m allergic to shellfish and couldn’t eat anything else.

    I picked the beef.  Personally, I’d prefer the shrimp and grits, but you would be surprised how many people either have a shellfish allergy or just plain don’t like seafood.  Your other choice is duck, which many people don’t like, so I think the second choice should be something that would appeal to the widest range of people.

    Chicken is also usually a safe bet, but the crabmeat (which I LOVE) made me eliminate it for the same reason as the shrimp.

    I’d probably go with the tenderloin (although the shrimp and the catfish would also appeal to me), because if you have guests who aren’t adventerous eaters, it’s a safe choice. And by safe, I just mean it would appeal to most people. The duck sounds super tasty! 🙂

    I agree that the duck is an outstanding choice. I would not do chicken if you’re going with duck. Although the fried catfish sounds delish (omg topped with crab) I don’t think fried foods will hold up well if the kitchen has to get 100+ portions out at the same time. Soggy fried foods make me sad.

    So if you’re going for more of a southern theme, go with the shrimp and grits. However, it may be a little on the more unrefined side for a wedding. Beef tenderloin is always a solid choice so I vote for that. It will be a safe option for people who are afraid of duck (can’t understand why but I suspect there are people like that out there).

    Can you do 2 appetizers? Perhaps you can do smaller versions of the shrimp and grits as an appetizer if you like it better than the gumbo. Or perhaps switching the mashed potatoes for creamy grits on the beef entree.

    I don’t know how flexible your caterer  is but I just thought I’d toss some ideas out. I love talking about food.
