We are getting married this summer and our planned catering firm is looking shaky. Our wedding will be about 50 guests and simple, but we do care about food. We like a lot of different ethnic styles and our friends and family aren't expecting the lobster/prime rib usual, either in price or familiarity. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

    We have had fantastic catered seafood, especially a big cioppino-like dish, from Mariscos Puerto Esperanza. The chef made enough for a party of 15-20 and it was a huge hit. Here is a picture of the salmon in achiote sauce I enjoy.

      Maybe something like Oaxacan food? http://www.gabbimex.com/
