Does any local Italian restaurant do a traditional Feast of the Seven Fishes on Christmas Eve?
Davio's in the Sonesta had a 7 Fishes dinner.
What is the origin/story of this tradition?
Here's a link for the story -
One fish dish for each of the seven sacraments of the Catholic faith. The tradition started in Italy and fish was more abundant and cheaper than red meat.
Two other theories tie the "seven" to the seven deadly sins, or the seven hills of Rome.
