Originating in Southern Italy as a Christmas Eve tradition, the popular Feast of the Seven Fishes
gets the Spoonbar treatment when chef Louis Maldonado prepares a luxurious seafood extravaganza in the traditional style. Indeed, seven sumptuous courses will be served for dinner. Menu highlights this year include big-fin squid with a Vietnamese broth of herbs and chile oil; sautéed abalone with black truffles in a classic French-inspired vermouth suprême sauce; and frozen yuzu for dessert. The feast happens on Saturday, Dec. 19, at Spoonbar, 219 Healdsburg Ave., Healdsburg. 5–10pm. $85. 707.433.7222.
