ANNOUNCES FEAST OF SEVEN FISHES CHRISTMAS MENU
An Italian-American tradition, the Feast of Seven Fishes is the celebratory Christmas dinner comprising decadent seafood delicacies. To honor this “grand tasting,” B&B Ristorante at the Venetian Las Vegas is offering a Feast of Seven Fishes Misto di Mare dinner platter on Dec. 24 and Dec. 25. The dish features a platter of seven vibrant seafood compositions created by Executive Chef Brett Uniss, exclusively for the 2017 holiday season.
The Feast of Seven Fishes is an age-old Italian dining tradition inspired by the Roman Catholic practice of abstaining from meat and dairy on certain holidays and holiday eves. Also, known as “the Vigil” or “La Vigilia,” the special pescatarian fête is widely celebrated in modern Italian-American households. B&B Ristorante, true to its Italian roots, has created a distinctive seafood feast to honor this cherished Christmas ritual.

The Misto di Mare platter will be available on Christmas Eve and Christmas night for $50 per person.
B&B Ristorante will offer their Feast of Seven Fishes dish in addition to its standard menu offerings on Christmas Eve and Christmas night.
