Feast On Christmas Eve Day with Vesta

While a lot of restaurants will be closed on Christmas Eve day (and night), Vesta will be open and celebrating with their customary Feast of the Seven Fishes meal.  A $40 per person prix-fixe will get you 5 hefty courses including dessert.  Below is the menu with all the specifics - keep in mind that Vesta uses locally sourced, organic ingredients that not only taste amazing, they're environmentally friendly too.
