    Personally, I’m allergic to fish and I don’t like steak very much so I would choose a chicken dish. What are vegetarians going to do?

    I like fish but I am not a fan of salmon and the other fish dishes didnt sound as amazing as some of the chicken dishes. So I voted for chicken (my favorite being chicken francese) and the filet mignon.

    Traditionally Chicken is the go to as a second choice, as it is a SAFE option for most people who have religious obligations or alergies (there are people deadly allergic to seafood & fish)…

    BUT as someone else said, what is the option you have for those people who are Vegetarians ?

    I have worked in Event Planning and the norm now is to have 3 options… Meat / Chicken or Fish / and a Vegetarian One for those who won’t eat anything “with a face”

    Something to think about in that being a Vegetarian is pretty common in most social circles nowadays (more so in a younger age group)

    Hope this helps,

    @lovelove1028:  mmm filet mignon is more tender, but sirloin has a better flavour. so you could argue either is better for different things

    i think id probably go for the bourbon land and sea, and then a cihcken dish – maybe chicken di pimento or chicken gerad. for the land and sea, im sure the cajun seasoning will be reasonably subtle

    can you do a tasting?!

    @lovelove1028:  I personally love seafood, but I know a lot of people don’t like it.  Some people prefer something lighter than beef (though I’d probably eat the filet mignon if it was being offered!), so that leaves the chicken option.

    All of the dishes you listed (in all categories!) sounded delicious, but I would probably choose chicken francese since it’s delicious and probably one of the “safer” options.  

    I think choosing foods that a lot of people will enjoy can be really tough.  I know I’m having similar issues when trying to determine which dishes to offer!

    I’d always offer a seafood dish for those people who enjoy fish. I wouldn’t do a salmon because salmon is a very strong tasting fish and people either love it or hate it. I’d choose a cod dish for that reason.

    At the end of the day your vege dish is another option for the people who dont like steak or fish.

    what is vege option BTW??
