I like Greek salad but I understand choosing Tossed to be on the safe side, and be appealing to as many people as possible.

For the entrees I’d go with: Prime Rib, Salmon, and Egg Parm

DoubleA903:  NYC food writer here! Here’s my vote:

Greek Salad

Pasta Primavera 

Chicken Parmesan

Stuffed Salmon

My reasoning is that this way you have a great veggie dish, meat dish, and seafood dish and it’s all cohesive.

Some people don’t eat red meat and many people don’t eat pork, but pretty much everyone who eats meat eats chicken, and Chicken Parm is super recognizable. Many people also dislike the texture of eggplant, which is why I chose the pasta primavera over the Eggplant Parm. 

All the entrees I chose go well with a greek salad, which I think is the best first course. Many people don’t like bleu cheese, ceaser salad is a little casual/midwestern for the other entrees, and tossed and spinach salad are a bit simple and out of season for a fall wedding.

Hope this helps!

DoubleA903:  No, we would have just added it as an other option. Our venue recommended only having 2 options, but could accomodate for more if we had wanted it.

freckles071611:  We are required to tell our venue a month in advance as well. There is no push back to do, if we don’t tell them how many exactly we don’t get food or the amount of waitstaff we need. My wedding is March 19 and we have a meeting the 2nd week of Feb that we have to know by.

 

My Choices:

Tossed Salad

-Slow Roasted Prime Rib of Beef

-Chicken Cordon Bleu

-Pasta Primavera

oreopaloozamrs:  Well I disagree with your venues policy.  They do not need to know that early, period.

I’m vegetarian. Seriously, “don’t chose eggplant, people don’t like it”!! So, there are vegetarians who don’t like vegetables?! They shouldn’t be vegetarian! If you need a veggie option, please chose the eggplant, not the pasta. Pasta is just stodge and filler food. I hate being fobbed off with a lump of fatty carbs with no taste. It’s the same with airlines, which is why I always order Asian Vegetarian so at least you get vegetables, lentils, beans- real food not just beige crap.

DoubleA903:  My worry with the eggplant parmesan is the cheese. As a vegetarian, I happen to loath eggplant (nightshades- they make me feel sick) and do not like or prefer cheese.  If the pasta premavera has veges with it I’ll choose that. True Caesar salad is a no go for vegetarians so I’d go with tossed to be safe ( no allergens).
