What about a grilled veggie and goat’s cheese tart for a vegetarian entree?

Herb crusted lamb chops as a red meat main?

Some sort of chocolate and crunchy salty caramel thing for dessert? Maybe with an interesting flavor ice cream or creme fraiche?

@Bears-bub:  Cous cous and maybe roasted zuchini, squash, and tomatoes?

Or you could go the heavier option and do gratin potatoes and sauteed carrots and baby onions.

As a vegetarian the tart sounds delicous 🙂

You could try something really different like a tagine? Cous cous is defintely a delicous addition to any meal, and it picks up flavours really well.

Our reception venue recommended having two meat based meat options and a vegetarian one (even though half our guests are vegetarian? oh well their choice) so I’m thinking things like… Wasabi salmon with an asian inspired coleslaw, or maybe a softshell crab… And then probably a beef something with tagine style vegetables.

Scallops and chorizo sounds awesome.

What about a creme brulee?

Starters that are nice are a seared sesame tuna, some kind of spinach salad with strawberries, parmesan and basalmic, anything with proscuitto or bacon?

Since you have a scallop and a veggie, I would go with a meat.

Maybe a beef trio of coffee rubbed braised short rib, beef carpaccio over wilted arugula and slices of prime rib with a wild mushroom and port sauce? Or something like that.

They are doing great things with mac and cheese, like mac and cheese balls as a side?

A really great salad would be a hit with a lot of people like an avocado and papaya frisee salad with a citrus lime vinaigrete

Dessert, I love little bites. maybe another trio of little bites, like a mini lemon tart, mini cannoli and chocolate dipped strawberry.
