I’d eliminate the 2 salads as they don’t seem to fit, and add potatoes of some sort and some veggies to accompany the meats, and add more sweets for afterwards. The cold salads just don’t seem right to me.

@Eckle:  I actually like the salads, as some people like to have lunch options for brunch. They also go well with the beef tips and carved turkey.

I think your menu looks great! Are the salads all tossed together or are they build-your-own? My only concern is that some people may have nut allergies. Other than that, sounds delicious!

@Eckle:  Can you put together a list of all known allergens and send it to the caterer? Maybe they don’t want to list all the ingredients because of proprietary reasons or because it would be time-consuming. Instead of asking them to list everything in each dish, maybe you can ask them to indicate which dishes have the problem ingredients.

As for the salads specifically, I don’t think it would be a huge inconvenience for them to separate out the ingredients, especially because it’s a buffet! I’d really push for some changes. Sometimes food allergies can be life-threatening.

@somethingaquamarine:  seriousl. I had apple pie in a place that didnt even KNOW it had nuts in it. Luckily I was waching football and eating slowly so I ffelt my throat closing before I’d eaten much.

Her venue would be crazy not to care!

@Eckle:  Good, I hope theyll be flexible!

My only suggestion would be on the goat cheese and hash browns – either have it separate for people to add goat cheese, or have second option of only hash browns.  I love hash browns and personally find goat cheese to be the most vile thing I’ve ever eaten…

@Eckle: I’m glad you’re concerned and prepared! I realize I’m sounding like a bit of a Debbie downer, but I’d hate for your big day to be ruined because someone has an allergic reaction.

In terms of variety and tastiness, I give your menu a big thumbs up!
