    Tell us what you have first.  You leave it open ended so someone might jump in and say oh yeah, sure, I have a great chipped beef and white toast with gravy apetizer.  I'm assuming you don't want that right?

    I would suggest adding some seasonal fruits and vegetables to this.  It's spring on the East Coast, now we are able to get asparagus and artichokes, and berries are right around the corner.

    I agree.  You can add a bit more to the items.   Arugula salad with something something, Salmon Wellington with some kind of vegetable preparation, Panna Cotta with a sauce of some kind?

    Much as I like them, it's a big "NO" to artichokes for that menu.  They leave something in the mouth which will make the wine/butter sauce taste unpleasantly sweet.

    When in doubt always serve a goat cheese and caramelized onion tart. It goes with everything.

    Ton, I think the ball is in your court.  Try to apply what you've learned & use Seasonal ingredients. I would add pears and/or apples, walnuts & blue or goat cheese to the arugula salad. Many ways to go. For an appetizer/starter, ceviche, chilled soup, verrines, or amuse bouche.
