I think that sounds like a great duet! I think it works out well, and if people don’t like it they can ask for extra beef or not eat the fish portion…I think either is fine!

I would likely not eat more than a bite of the fish.  I don’t care for most fish.  That said, I would eat your appetizers, the bread, the beef, the dessert and I would not go hungry or complain to you(!).  I would just quietly wish to myself that I had a choice not to have the fish.

ETA: @Miss Orchard:  It would never occur to me to ever ask for more of the main course and if someone not the bride suggested it to me, I’d worry that was rude.  So if this is the plan, make sure it’s clearly communicated to guests!

Personally, I would love it, but I am not a picky eater. I would stick with the beef/fish duet if I were you. If someone doesn’t eat one or the other, like you said , they could get double beef, or double fish.

I think it sounds like a great meal! I personally don’t like beef and don’t eat seafood, but if I was a guest I’d make do and not complain. I would probably taste everything and then just eat whatever I could.

I don’t eat beef but I would be happy with the fish. The spinach rissotto sounds good too 🙂

I dont eat beef, and currently due to pregnancy can’t eat large fish, I normally dont eat Grouper anyway. so I wouldnt eat either of those. Is there a veggie option or chicken?

If people don’t like one of the entrees, they can trade with their spouse.

I wouldn’t eat the beef but would give it to my Darling Husband and take his fish.  Just make sure the two entrees don’t touch each other.  I would be kind of grossed out if the beef and it’s sauce and taste got on my fish.

I don’t really like fish or beef so I would much prefer to have a chicken option.  I will eat beef is that is the only thing available, and maybe the fish (it can be hit or miss with me).  I flat out don’t like it probably 80% of the time but every once and a while I find a fish that I really like (mmmm halibut….).  However, I do think I’m in the minority in this and the beef-fish should probably be fine.  But having a beef-beef or fish-fish option is a really good idea too.

@Meowkers:  This is what I was going to say. I’d eat both of those options, but if there were an option I didn’t like, I’d just trade with my fiance or a really close friend (yes, I would eat food off a close girlfriend’s plate lol). I think they sound like the kind of things that would appease the vast majority, though.

this sounds so delicious!! 

I agree with making sure the sauces don’t mix too much, but I’d be delighted to get served this.
