Feast of the Seven Fishes

Dec. 18-25

Over seven nights (Dec. 18-24), Healdsburg’s Spoonbar will serve up an eclectic mix of fish and seafood dishes from the everday to the exotic in homage to the Italian tradition of the Feast of the Seven Fishes. The celebration, which dates back hundreds of years, stems from the Catholic practice of abstaining from red meat in the days leading up to Christmas. Chef Louis Maldonado’s menu includes sea urchin with smoked potato puree, citrus-marinated Dungeness crab, Japanese kanpachi, octopus and mussels in coconut curry broth, brioche-crusted branzino and oyster panna cotta. Menus will range from $50-$55 per person, with each night featuring a different menu.
