tips on this dinner party menu for 8?

mess hall mama | Oct 23, 2006 12:40 AM

I'm looking for suggestions, warnings and tips about timing (very nervous about timing) for this menu I've planned for a small birthday dinner that I'll be making at the birthday girl's home. I have recipes already, but I would appreciate tips from experienced cooks:
Manhattans (cocktail)
beet and goat cheese salad
4 steaks (filet mignon or what?)
4 salmon steaks (arctic char or what?)
small yellow and red potatoes with rosemary
green beans
red velvet cake
Any help you can offer this enthusiastic, non-expert, cook would be very appreciated! Thanks!
