Party Recipe: A Feast Fit for an Architect

Our good friend, Matt, is took his final architecture license exam this week. In honor of this great achievement - and to celebrate the fact that my crazy silverware arrived - we're having him over for dinner on Friday night.

I just need to come up with a menu fit for an architect! "Deconstructed" recipes are an easy match. Something with Mexican-flair since he's from San Diego. And maybe some version of a gingerbread house for dessert. Anyone know Frank Lloyd Wright's favorite cocktail? Any other clever ideas?

One thing's for sure, we'll need some very fancy eyeglasses.

My stepdad worked at Taliesen, I'll ask him and let you know if he even has a clue.

Maybe you could make something from the Four Seasons in NYC -- housed in Mies van der Rohe's famous Seagram building. Here's a link (stupid Flash site). I imagine that their food is designed to complement the architecture.

I would think you could make a house out of something lighter than gingerbread, like chocolate wafers or something.
