LBRM_NJ and any other Crystal Plaza Brides

Were there any things on the menu when you got married at the Crystal Plaza that you would recommend?  I am in the process of choosing a menu.  Thanks!

    I hate to say it, but, I didn't really eat at my wedding!  We did take some food back to the hotel with us and I tried the chicken and the fish and they were both amazing.  The appetizer was a big hit.  As for the cocktail hour, the sushi bar, pierogies, mashed potato station, and vodka station were huge hits!!  Oh, and having a baby lamb chop station as opposed to passed got rave reviews!!

    FYI - I got married 5 years ago and it was a kosher wedding, so, if yours is not kosher, I'm sure there are other options, and either way, I'm sure there are other options after all these years.
