War and Peace Menu

After an epic journey have reached the epilogue of this epic novel and, in anticipation of finishing, am starting to plan to an epic feast to celebrate. Some pescaterians some omnivores in attendance. On top of Russian food thinking it will be fun to mix in some thematics from book. ie, Napoleons. Perhaps a number of small dishes to express epic-ness of novel. Know very little about Russian food -- so if you have an obscure specialty please explain.

Thoughts so far (but open to suggestions):
- Caviar (feel like I've earned it) -- poss with baby potatos and sour cream
- Vodka.
- Borsch
- Some form of big sturgeon if I can track one down.
- potatos with mushrooms
- honeyed walnuts on yogurt
- Napoleons

Don't have anything for greens yet...
