I'm trying to develop a menu for an upcoming party. The theme is upscale comfort food. I'm trying to do something different and innovative. For example, while lobster mac and cheese is good - it's been done before. I'm looking for unique and show stopping. One idea that was bounced around was spaghetti and meatballs - lobster meatballs with squid ink pasta.
This party is usually about 4-6 courses, the main course being a duo plate of meat and seafood as to satisfy meat lovers and vegetarians, or people that want to eat both. The party is too big and the time period is too short to serve different meals.
I'd appreciate any suggestions to get my brain on a roll :)
