Fiance and I are getting married in October in a seaside New England town. We’re doing a buffet dinner. Currently our options at dinner are:
-grilled catch of the day (likely sea bass or sword fish)
-pumpkin mascarpone ravioli
-crispy Brussels sprouts
-baby kale caesar salad
-roast fingerling potatoes
-butternut squash soup
-new England clam chowder
Our caterers just contacted us to ask what kind of chicken we’d like on our menu (originally had settled on “roast chicken”)–barbecued or with a roasted shallot sauce. Both sound delicious to me and there’s no difference in price. What would you pick?

How will the chicken be prepared if it is served with the roasted shallot sauce? Baked? Also barbecued? Something else?

I would opt for the roasted shallot sauce. Your menu sounds fantastic!

Roasted shallot sauce for sure. I like BBQ chicken but it’s more of a summer dish and might be messy at a wedding.

As long as there are no bones. I hate chicken with the bone in, even if it’s a nice brazed 1/4 chicken. Good for a BBQ, not so much a wedding.
You food sounds fab!

Could they let you taste the different preparations to help you decide?

Roasted shallot sauce … agree with PP that bbq is more of a summer thing.

I agree with the roasted shallot sauce. BBQ is tasty but feels a bit more casual.

Roasted with roasted shallot sauce works well with your Brussels sprouts and roasted potatoes.
