Aida Seven Fishes

catch of the day fish (2)For being a town that prides ourselves so much on our seafood, we don’t hear enough about the Feast of the Seven Fishes. The Italian tradition does in fact include seven (or eight, or nine…) different types of seafood in a variety of sumptuous dishes. Sure, traditionally fish was something that folks ate when fasting from more decadent things like meat, but these days a smorgasbord of fresh seafood just doesn’t say “going without” like it used to. For the full effect, (and for those procrastinators who still don’t have plans for this evening) we recommend a trip down to Columbia to Aida Bistro for a totally authentic Feast of the Seven Fishes.

Tonight’s prix fixe menu begins with offerings like fried calamari and PEI mussels, and winds through options like grilled salmon, lobster, and of course, crab. It comes with a flight of three wine pours, and we can’t even imagine the traditional Italian dessert offerings. Sure, it’s late in the game, and reservations at Aida book up fast, but we’ve checked, and if you’re up for feasting on the later side, there’s still a table, and a whole lot of tasty crustaceans, waiting for you.

Aida Bistro is located at 6741 Columbia Gateway Drive in Columbia. For more information, or to book a reservation, visit
