Which would you prefer- a sushi station with various types of sushi or a tapas bar? The tapas bar (various mediterranean spreads, seared tuna, potato cakes with chorizo, roast vegetable towers with manchego, crostini with serrano ham and melon, etc.) at cocktail hour. The other apps we are having include a pasta station, a cheese, fruit and crudite station, a bruschetta bar and 7 passed apps.

Sushi! That also might be a good way to please some of your non-seafood eating guests if you had vegetable rolls.

Tapas bar. Sushi can get tricky-if it is premade and not super fresh it usually doesn’t taste very good. I say the Tapas bar is the best choice.

Definitely tapas. Orchid84 is right….not so fresh sushi can be really, really bad.

Tapas. I looooooooooove sushi and could eat that all day, but tapas sounds more interesting and I rather see that.

Tapas! Sushi needs to be prepared fresh and needs to be temp controlled in order to be at peak deliciousness. 🙂 Tapas gives you a little more wiggle room.

Tapas sounds like a better option. You might have some picky eaters, and I think that option is more likely to give everyone something they will eat.
My in-laws probably wouldn’t touch a sushi station, even if the ingredients were cooked. Their lack of a sense of adventure when it comes to food pisses me off to no end.

I say it depends on your crowd. We had a sushi display which was scarfed down by our guests in no time flat – I didn’t even see it because all the sushi was gone before we got to cocktail hour. I heard that guests were stacking their plates with sushi. We also had an antipasto display and several passed hors d’ouevres, so nobody went hungry. But really the sushi was a runaway hit of cocktail hour, so as long as you have other options for the non-sushi eaters (and it sounds like you do) I’d say go for it and make sure you order plenty.

I love sushi, but I would be very wary eating it from a catered station. I’d definitely go for tapas, unless your caterer is top of the line and known for having fresh sushi.
