    Do you have a vegetarian option?

    I chose the lamb, but honestly, both sound amazing.  Fiance and I would likely each pick one so that we could share!

    I picked lamb – but they both sound awesome!

    I’d pick sea bass.  I don’t like sea bass, but I don’t eat lamb, either, but I like mashed potatoes, so basically, that’s what I’d eat.

    I’m picky, so honestly I’d eat neither 🙁  I’m most likely in the minority, though.  I don’t eat seafood and lamb just…sounds and looks gross to me.  But, if I had to choose I’d pick whichever mashed potate side sounded best and just eat that.  Your dinner would be wasted on a guest like me! :-

    @MrsDrRose612:  Nope, same. I’m a flexatarian, so basically a vegetarian (although I do eat some meat, mostly poultry). I absolutely REFUSE to eat lamb/veal/etc., and I really hate seafood.

    These both sound delicious…but I’m an adventurous eater who likes special touches like the sauces and garnishes described. Fiance is much more of a simple eater so I think he might be intimidated by both of these. I voted on the sea bass.

    Today, the Sea Bass has a slight edge because I’m in the mood for fish. But both sound great! (I would probably order one and have my husband order the other so we could try both!)

     

    @vorpalette – Please don’t think I’m trying to insult your diet, I’m not, I’m just curious: why no lamb? I can understand veal, but I don’t understand the lamb part, since lamb is almost never raised “factory farm” style and is almost always raised in pastures, I figured lamb would be more on the “safe list” for people than beef, from an ethical standpoint.

    OP- that is actually why I asked about the vegetarian option… because I would not choose either meal.  I have tried lamb before, several times actually, at different places and cooked different ways, and every single time, I HATED IT!  I want to like it but I just don’t 🙁  As for seafood, well I’m pretty picky about that too… so I would ideally just choose a vegetarian option, or pick whichever meal and just eat the sides.

    That being said, if I were a guest at your wedding, I wouldn’t throw a fit about the free meal being provided to me.  I’d either nibble on it and be polite, or I’d decline the meal that I know I won’t eat so you don’t have to fork over the catering money.  It certainly isn’t YOUR fault if I’M picky, know what I mean?

    I wouldn’t eat either, sorry. If it were me, I’d change the lamb to a type of beef that would be more accepted. I know a lot of people that don’t eat lamb. I don’t think that people who are concerned with ethics would really eat any type of meat, so I’m not sure that should be a factor in your decision. I don’t eat seafood, either, but I know thats less common.

    I don’t eat lamb and since sea bass is overfished (at least the Chilean kind), I wouldn’t want to eat either.
