I'm a selective eater (no pork, no beef), a few friends are vegetarian, and the rest meat eaters. I love the idea of picky foods with a main entree. Any input will help :)

Eggplant Lasagna, with ricotta cheese/spinach stuffing.
Greek Stuffed Cabbage leaves with rice or quinoa.
Green beans with a greek tomato sauce (tomato sauce with oregano, basil,cinnamon).
For the meat eaters. Skewers of meat or chicken, marinaded in Greek seasonings. Or baked greek chicken thighs; Served with Hummus and Pita Bread. Spinach spanakopita could come into play.
Or a broiled fish in greek seasoning with a parsley/lemon juice/olive oil/garlic blended sauce.
Yum! Great ideas. Thanks -that sounds awesome.
Sam, are you Greek?

don't forget the tzaziki!
Hahah..Not Greek. But here almost all the good resturants are owned by Greek families and there's a big Greek Food Festival every year. I grew up around this stuff. I forgot Dolmas, and stuff yellow squash too. But that's a lot of prep work.
For my 30th birthday I served paella. I had a veggie one and and a seafood one. I also made a large salad with mangoes and avocado and a bunch of other vegetarian and pescatarian friendly side dishes that were made ahead of dinner time.
Shhh. If you want to take a short cut for the Chicken Thighs.
Cavander's Greek Seasoning on the chicken. Skin on,Bone in. Oil them, season--let them sit an hour or so and then add a touch of paprika for color. Then bake them. It's a good seasoning; widely available.
What is the city in which the large Greek festival is held?
I wish I could help you. 30 was so long ago I forget what my 30 yr old self would have appreciated! Happy Birthday!
