Event Details

Café la Vie brings the Italian-American tradition of The Feast of Seven Fishes to life this year on December 14, 2022 with a beautiful four course culinary masterpiece and optional wine pairing.  Different seating options are available between the hours of 5-10PM.

In the 1900s, Italian-Americans rejuvenated the timeless Roman Catholic practice of abstaining from meat on Christmas Eve by preparing a seafood meal that made them feel both connected to the Old Country and close to a long celebrated seasonal traditional.  While the ancient tradition of eating fish on Christmas Eve can be traced back to the Roman Catholic beginnings, the number seven is also biblically rooted; sacraments, days of creation, deadly sins… hence the seven in the number of fishes presented during this fine meal.  Considered one of the oldest Italian-American traditions, The Feast of Seven Fishes is a time to be surrounded by family, friends, and delicious seafood offerings.

$75/person with a $50/person optional wine pairing

“It wouldn’t be the holiday season with the celebration of family traditions.  Café la Vie is dedicated to bringing some of Europe’s most time-honored traditions to life in St. Louis.  The Feast of Seven Fishes will be a wonderful way to explore a new culinary experience surrounded by friends and family.”  – Andrew Hargis, General Manager
