I know of a number of people that are fish-adverse so I think that’s a tricky choice. That said, since you have two other good options, I think a tricky option is fine.
I think the Thanksgiving meal sounds good and I think the failure rate is pretty low.

I voted for Maple-Cured Pork Loin with Red Cabbage and Squash. I do like chicken, but it eat it so often. I’m not a fan of turkey and I don’t eat grains.

I don’t eat fish and some are allergic to fish. I’d also avoid pork so that just left turkey.

@phishy179: what are the beef and veg options you picked?

@hotpinkbride: They do have salmon, however we were leaning to the walleye because it’s locally caught, and we are on the whole “support your locals” bandwagon!
@vorpalette: Vegetarian is a chef’s choice based off of what’s in season. I think the common options are Gnocchi or a seasonal ravioli.

@phishy179: Yum! Then I don’t care what your third option is LOL

@oracle: Oh my goodness, the beef is so good. It’s a grilled red-wine marrinated Flat Iron steak with farmer’s market veggies and celery-root potato puree (which sounded really gross when we heard it but was so so good).

@phishy179: that sounds awesome! My vote is for fish to round out your choices! I think your menu looks and sounds great!

Since most caterers do one free tasting and you’ve already done yours with them, you could always try a few more caterers to get a better idea of some dishes. Also, if you’re not liking something your caterer made it might be worth trying out some other options. Hope that wouldn’t be too daunting at this point.

@mrscash: That is a great idea, however we’re lucky that the restaurant attached to the hotel serves almost the same menu as they provide for weddings, so we’re going to try a few of these next week.

I picked turkey because not everyone likes fish and everyone serves chicken. I think the turkey would be something different and is more of a comfort food that most can/will appreciate seeing at your wedding.

Ato me, the only issue with the turkey is whether it is light or dark meat or a mixture. But this would probably by my choice. Is it real stuffing or a stovetop product?

I LOVE roast turkey and I so rarely get to eat it outside of Thanksgiving. I would choose turkey!
