    I’ve never seen a mashed potato bar but they sound fun!  The mushroom risotto sounds really good too though.  I feel like the rest of your food is a little more upscale so the risotto might fit in better.  Really you can’t go wrong though!

    Anyone who wouldn’t get excited about filling a cup with mashed potatoes and then choosing from an array of toppings sounds like a stick in the mud.  

    I WISH I knew someone having a mashed potato bar. DO IT!!

    I think the risotto is more suitable for a wedding, plus mashed potatoes don’t always behave nicely on a buffet. They dry out and get crusty if they’re not constantly tended to.

    I’ve been to a couple of events with a mashed potato bar, and it is always a highlight! Plus, I hate mushrooms (and know I’m not alone in this), so I think mashed potatoes are more of an overall crowd pleaser!

    I like the balance it provides. The menu to me, seems very “proper” and for a refined palette. If your not used to eating a plated, gourmet meal, seeing a DIY mashed bar would be the shiz!
