    From what I have heard, but don’t quote me… is that fish is something that can be a little iffy. Pork generally is made to peoples’ liking and isn’t too controversial. If you have any people attending like my family members though, veal might be offensive… haha. Honestly, I would want the fish option, but I’ve just heard things.

    Soo… I’m really having trouble deciding what to vote for… I’m going to say the pork. It sounds the safest 😉

    Is there not a chicken option? I would suggest chicken over your poll options since it’s the biggest crowd pleaser Laughing

    Fish is either a love it or hate it kind of thing in my experience. I know many people who will not eat prk so I would hestitate on that one. Veal doesn’t set well as an alternative as it is beef. I vote chicken! Surely they must offer some sort of chicken? It is usually a crowd pleaser.

    Are you going to have a veggie option? I will vote for pork, because I do think fish can be iffy, but that leaves people who don’t eat red meat or meat at all with no option.

    I’d recommend chicken. Chicken is a crowd pleaser whereas both fish and pork are love-it-or-hate-it items. Personally, I don’t eat beef, fish, or pork… so I guess I’d go with the veg option and hope for the best.

    Pork also has a tendency to be dry or undercooked, much like chicken. However, I think between the beef and vegetarian options, few people will choose the pork/fish. Sorry I’m not much help; I just don’t think there’s a clear winner here.

    Sea bass is a very light white fish that is fantastic, surf and turf is a great combo

    Sea bass, definitely.

     

    Also, I HATE chicken but I end up stuck with it at weddings and I always try it and it is almost always terrible. I applaud you to standing your ground on the issue.

    i think pork will be more crowd pleaser than fish as i know lots of  people who do  not like/do not eat fish (the fishy smell i think), not the veal , as they are red meat same as the beef, as you will be having a vegetarian dish as other option i think pork, beef and vege should be alright.

    I vote fish. We had a choice of filet, mahi mahi, or vegan veggie stack with calypso rice, and everyone was happy.

    I really would encourage you not to have two mammal meat options. A lot of people won’t eat pork and in my opinion, veal and pork are too similar to beef to be a true alternative. Fish or chicken is the way to go, and I agree that chicken is more likely to be tasteless when mass produced than fish is. Sea bass is a great fish and is not too delicate (which means it will hold up well to the realities of a catering sitaution).

    Also, the point of ossobucco is to eat the bone marrow, not the veal… not too many Americans dine on bone marrow these days. I bet a lot of your guests wouldn’t recognize it.
