Seriously wtf. Unless these are actual allergies, I would just tell the chef they are vegan and gluten free and let him pick something. It’s not your responsibility to accomodate picky eaters.

It’s not that they can’t eat things like tomato and eggplant. It’s that they WON’T. You have provided meal options that are completely 100% both vegan AND gluten-free. Now, they are just taking advantage of you to put in their personal taste preferences. 

Tell them thakn you, you’ve taken their suggestions. Then YOU pick out what is most convenient for YOU that is vegan and gluten-free and that is what they’ll eat or they just don’t have to eat at all.

I agree that just accommodating their dietary restrictions is generous enough. All you needed to do was tell the venue that they were gluten free and vegan, and let them handle it. I would not have offered them options. I would tell them, “I’ve passed on both your dietary needs to the venue, and they said they would take care of it.” If they make further requests or have questions, direct them to the venue or tell them outright that while they can accommodate gluten-free and vegan, they may not be able to accommodate further for taste.

People are such fucking divas about food, especially free meals. It’s ONE MEAL. Just like meat eaters are expected to suck it up and eat a vegetarian meal if that’s what the couple serves, picky asses should suck it up and find SOMETHING to eat, or hell bring some Nabs.
