Sounds a bit light on the vegetarian fare, since (if I read correctly) the only options would be hors d’oeuveres (and then only asparagus in phyllo and caprese skewers and  poboys). I would add a vegetarian entree to the buffet, even making the pasta a with/without chicken option would improve things i think.

I think it sounds AWESOME.  But, if you have any vegetarians then they are going to be disappointed.  I only see two vegetarian items on the entire menu.  If I were vegetarian I’d want more than a po-boy and some asparagus.  Maybe you could add some vegetarian gumbo or even offer the butternut squash soup without the shrimp.  Maybe a second vegetarian pasta dish depending on how many vegetarians you have coming.

I agree with @CorgiTales, there doesn’t seem to be much for vegetarians. It seems as simple as just removing the chicken from the entree.

Don’t stress over finding food for the picky eaters, but it would be good to add something else for the vegetarians. Everything else sound delicious!

@LizLemon:  can you not have pasta but with two sauce options – with chicken for meat eaters, basic tomato sauce for vegetarians

because only a dip and 2 hors d’oeurves are vegetarian friendly

and maybe make it just butternut squash soup and skip the shrimp. butternut squash is delicious as it is

I would eat all the things. Yummy. But I agree with those who said skip the shrimp in the soup and offer the pasta without chicken to give your vegetarians something more substantial.

I am picky and MAYBE would eat a mini poboy and some cheese and crudite but that’s about it and you can only eat so much cheese and crudite.  As a picky eater I would be a little offended and as if my feelings weren’t considered…possibly like a vegetarian may feel with a lack of choices for them.

@LizLemon:  Love your user name, By The Way

Maybe make the soup without shrimp

make the mushrooms without crab

and have a pasta with vegetarian sauce?

i like seafood, but really, meat eaters don’t need to have meat in everything. people will be just as happy with the soup and more apps w/o seafood in them

I think it all sounds great, but I agree if there are vegetarians…they will be disapointed.
