MissLibra: Menu threads are my favorite threads!! I love reading about everyone else’s food more than I like looking at dresses – haha! Congrats on solidifying your menu, it all looks delicious! Pork paired with apple is just amazing! I would be all over that.
missjz: You had me at figs and brie!
We aren’t getting married for another 10 months, but this is what we are thinking:
6 hour top shelf open bar, champagne greeting, signature cocktails, etc.
Chilled seafood display (Blue Point oysters, little neck clams, shrimp, lump crab meat, etc.), pasta salad display, hot seafood display (lobster claws, Alaskan king crab legs, steamed clams, sauteed mussels, etc.), antipasti display, grilled vegetable display, cheese and meat display, Greek display, over 30 butlered hors-d’oeuvres, interactive pasta station, interactive sushi station, lobster risotto martini glass bar
Northeastern salad: Fresh spring mix wrapped in a thin carrot, candied walnuts, cran raisins, chopped green apple, crispy crostini topped and goat cheese served with champagne vinaigrette
Undecided, but it will be fresh fruit and sorbet. Probably mango sorbet over fresh raspberries
Main course selections:
Bacon wrapped filet: Center cut filet mignon wrapped in applewood smoked bacon pan seared, served with a caramelized onion demi glaze
Chilean Sea Bass: Roasted Chilean Sea Bass, served with a ginger, lemongrass, miso sauce with a hint of soy
Orange Muscovy Duck Breast: Crispy pan roasted duck breast served with orange Gran Marnier glaze; they can also do this with a port wine glaze — I’m undecided on this one but leaning towards the Gran Marnier!
We have not yet decided on our fourth option but we are thinking something like a vegetable napoleon or ratatouille. Something different from pasta!
4 tier wedding cake (flavors TBD), dessert shooters, six additional 12″ assorted cakes, mini pastries, individual pastries, tableside bananas foster, tableside molten lava cakes, tableside waffles and ice cream, tableside funnel cake, crepe station (SO EXCITED FOR THIS ONE!), and butlered mini milkshakes and french fries for the end of the night when our friends are inebriated and looking to snack!
