Still planning your Labor Day Weekend menu? While we love the classics, it's always fun to bring something new to the table (literally). Perhaps a bowl of the famous queso fundido served at Otra Vez or a platter of grilled clams, complete with spicy garlic butter. Chile-marinated crab is sure to be a crowd-pleaser and should be displayed next to Tavolino's prosciutto-wrapped goat cheese stuffed jalapenos. Wrap up the day with a homemade brownie ice cream sandwiches, courtesy of everyone's favorite Joy the Baker.

Below, 5 recipes to whip up this Labor Day.
