We are having a very nice plated dinner, and we decided to upgrade to surf and turf, which is normally a petite sirloin and jumbo shrimp, but talked the venue into switching the shrimp for a grilled salmon since a lot of people (including me) are allergic to shellfish.
Besides the one or 2 people who have gluten allergies and the kids, everyone is getting this dish. We worked really hard to pick it out and wanted to eliminate as much headache and confusion as possible.
With that being said, because people wont be making any decisions about their meal and they just get to sit back and be served, is it really necessary to have the menu posted? Our tables will be pretty full with programs/activity sheets (not as corny as it sounds, i promise), huge table name signs, and centerpieces.
Can my guests just be surprised when dinner is served?
