Christmas Eve is traditionally the Italian Feast of the Seven Fishes and lots of places around town are celebrating accordingly, with special seafood menus.
~A16~ and ~A16 ROCKRIDGE~ will both be offering seafood menus on December 24th. The menus will be different, but both are serving a four-course prix-fixe menu with optional wine pairings. Wine pairings will be available at three different levels: classic, rosso, and rare and unique. Check out the San Francisco menu here and the Rockridge menu here.
~PALIO D’ASTI~ is offering Christmas Eve dinner again this year; it’s six courses and includes choices. The regular menu will also be available. Cost is $79 per person.
You’ll also find the seven fishes at ~AQ~, but on Tuesday December 23rd, when a six-course menu will be on offer. The menu hasn’t been finalized, but early hints suggest there will be Dungeness crab, scallops, and sea bass. Tickets are $68 per person.
