GW FINS BRINGS THE POPULAR ITALIAN HOLIDAY TRADITION, THE FEAST OF THE SEVEN FISHES,
TO NEW ORLEANS
On Thursday, December 13th, GW Fins’ Chef de Cuisine Michael Nelson will replicate one of the most popular Italian holiday traditions, Feast of the Seven Fishes, or “La Vigilia.” The tradition is held throughout Italy every year on Christmas Eve and this year, GW Fins is bringing the culinary celebration to 808 Bienville Street on Thursday, December 13th. Of course, Chef Nelson will put his own creative, modern day spin on each of the time-honored seafood dishes.
This sumptuous dinner will be comprised of seven seafood courses. The first three are individually plated dishes. The final four courses will be served family style, with several dishes on each table for everyone to share and enjoy.
Below is the preliminary menu that Chef Mike has created…
