Every year Italians celebrate Christmas Eve with a traditional Feast of the Seven Fishes, and you can get your fill of all the gills at Geppetto on Sunday, December 24th. Chef Will Gilson and the team are packing all the pescare (that’s Italian for fish) into a festive four-course dinner that’ll fill you up with good cheer, including courses like Fritto Misto with calamari, shrimp, delicata squash and Calabrian aioli; and Lobster Lasagna with root vegetables, mascarpone and bay leaf bechamel (check out the menu below). Dinner costs $110 per person, and you can add a festive cocktail or two (a la carte) to make the season bright. The best part is that you can dine anytime between 4:00 and 8:00pm, which will give you plenty of time to finish all that wrapping and get a good night’s rest before the big day, because you know the kids will be up before dawn.
