Meat-free New Year's eve for 14: Need advice!

simkhele | Dec 25, 2012 06:55 PM

In a small NYC apartment, I'm cooking a sit-down dinner for 14 New Year's Eve. (Buffet style would be MORE crowded and crazy than sit-down in our cramped space.) Our dining table plus my work desk, moved into the living room, will be our dining surface; we'll have appetizers standing around in my small study, sans furniture.
So: What to serve? Among the 14 are 6 non-meat eaters, so it would be best to make a fish dish. I'm thinking a pasta course (veggie), then a fish stew, maybe, with crusty bread, then a crisp salad. But what fish can be mostly prepared in advance so as not to cause last-minute tiny-kitchen chaos (not to mention cooking pasta after all guests have arrived.) I welcome menu suggestions (even highly alternative ones, as long as meat plays no role.) Thanks!
