Description
 
The Feast of the Seven Fishes is an Italian-American Christmas Eve celebration, reflecting the tradition of abstinence from red meat until Christmas Day. Despite its fish-y name, the feast typically consists of seven seafood dishes. Here in Philadelphia, the Feast has been proudly commemorated by Italian-American families for generations. So for our own Feast, we invited Damon Menapace of East Passyunk’s Le Virtu to cook up a spectacular seafood spread: octopus salad with fennel and red onion; swordfish carpaccio with olives and capers; fried cod with garlic and peppers; grilled sardines with lemon and parsley; gnocchi with baccala and saffron; spaghetti allo scoglio with mussels, clams and calamari; stuffed-baked lobster; and (save room for dessert!) cannoli with sweetened ricotta and chocolate. You’re in good hands, as Damon’s Italian cooking pedigree is strong, having also spent time at Marc Vetri’s Osteria and Alla Spina. In addition to his resume, Damon is committed to sourcing from dedicated farmers and producers in order to provide the best-tasting food possible. But don’t take our word for it – join Damon for a meal to remember!
