Hey bees! My venue allows 1 salad and 3 entrees to choose from on the menu. They also require this information 1 month before the event, so I will need to send the menus out with my invitations and have some sort of meal response on the RSVP. They will work with dietary restrictions (like gluten-free) on a case by case basis, so in that situation a guest can have a different meal.
If you were chosing from this list what menu would you put together? I am thinking I will definitely be doing the tossed salad with 1 beef, 1 chicken, and 1 veggie option..but feel free to put together any combination 🙂
Salad (choose one):
Tossed, Caesar, Apple Walnut Blue Cheese, Spinich, or Greek.
Entree (choose three) served with chef’s accompaniments:
-Slow Roasted Prime Rib of Beef
-New York Strip Steak
-Chicken Cordon Bleu
-Stuffed Chicken Breast (Traditional Stuffing)
-Penne with Chicken and Broccoli
-Stuffed Pork Chops (Stuffing not specified, I’ll have to ask)
-Stuffed Salmon (Crabmeat stuffing)
-Stuffed Sole (Seafood stuffing)

lol I was just about to type my post when I realized your answers are the same as mine. So I’m phoning this one in with a ‘ditto’ 🙂

Apple, walnut, bleu cheese, definitely. And eggplant, for my veggie entree. When I used to eat meat I loved chicken cordon bleu – it doesn’0t dry out like other chicken dishes can, or chicken francaise.

Strip Steak. Chicken Marsala. Pasta Primavera.
Those three make my mouth water the most.

If this were my wedding, for my particular guests, I’d probably do the following:
– Prime rib
– Pasta Primavera

I’d pick the same as PP (as MsGingko)

Do they require your 3 meal choices one month in advance or a headcount for which meals are needed one month in advance? If it is the former then that makes sense, but if it is the latter I would push back on that. Your venue does not need a final headcount/final meal choices a month out. Two weeks, sure. But not a month out.
What are the chicken, pork and two fishes stuffed with? If you pick any of the stuffed items it would be a good idea to note what they are stuffed with on your invites. That way someone doesn’t pick the stuffed chicken only to find out that it is stuffed with something that they hate or are allergic to.
I would probably pick…
I would have preferred the NY strip but since everyone likes their steak cooked at different temperatures it is not the easiest thing to serve to a large crowd. A fish option would be nice but since you can only choose 3 then a vegetarian option is a better choice.

Salad: Personally, I would prefer Apple walnut blue cheese or Greek. But if I was picking for a whole reception, I would probably go with Ceasar. Because alot of people don’t like Feta nor blue cheese.
Entrees: Prime Rib, eggplant parm, penne with chicken and broccoli

Sorry Bees! I should have included that, thanks for the pointer! On the invites I will definitely have all the info!
Chicken “Homemade stuffing”
Salmon “Crabmeat stuffing”
Sole- “Seafood stuffing”
Pork- doesn’t specify. I probably won’t offer pork chops but I will ask the venue for info if I do.

have you actually tasted any of their food?
I would probably agree with MsGinkgo:
on the above choices as well – prime rib, stuffed chicken breast and eggplant parm (unless you know you have a bunch of vegans and then I would switch to pasta primavera since that is easier to make vegan)

I just thought I’d pop in and suggest the eggplant parm for sure. It is AMAZING. If I could eat it 24/7, I would. It’s a great meatless option, even for those who do eat meat (I’m a vegetarian, but my fiance isn’t, and he loves eggplant parm). We are having that as a meatless option at our wedding.

+1 about the salads. As delicious they are, I would stay away from Apple or Greek if trying to appeal to most people at the reception. People are weird about cheeses haha. I think your choice of the tossed is the safest option.
I don’t eat beef so I wouldnt know which beef option to choose but I would probably pick chicken francaise and pasta primavera! All the options sound delicious tbh!!
