Vesta's Holiday Menu is a Feast for the Eyes and the Stomach

You can always count on Vesta to be open and welcoming during the holidays.  While their food offering is always special and interesting, they definitely kick it up a notch on holidays such as Thanksgiving, Easter, and especially Christmas and New Year's Eve. 

For those of you who've experienced it over Christmas, Vesta delivers a traditional Italian "Feast of the Seven Fishes." This year is no different but always just as amazing.  Here's the menu to whet your appetite.  I'll follow up with the New Year's offering soon too.
