For those with Italian roots, no Christmas tradition is quite as memorable (or deliciously unmissable) as the Feast of the Seven Fishes. And while some grandmothers out there still avidly prepare the six or seven or ten course feast each year, most of us will need to make reservations if we’re hoping to partake of this maritime-centric smorgasbord. As an Italian tradition, the Feast of the Seven Fishes makes perfect sense, coming from a country that’s largely coastline. And similarly, here in Baltimore, it’s the perfect way to get in your mandated Maryland quota of seafood while staying well within a traditional Christmas menu. Various restaurants around town and beyond offer prix fixe menus for the Christmas Eve meal, but for an authentic, delicious, and beautiful feast– we’re betting on Donna’s in Cross Keys.
