Lidia’s Kansas City announces second seating for annual Feast of the Seven Fishes dinner on Christmas Eve

Space is still available for 8:15 p.m. seating on Dec. 24 in Lidia’s private Loft for $60 per person; reservations required

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (Dec. 7, 2018) – Lidia’s Kansas City is hosting its annual holiday dinner, Feast of the Seven Fishes, on Monday, Dec. 24, in the restaurant’s private Loft. The special, multi-course menu highlights fresh seafood and local vegetables to honor the Italian tradition, La Vigilia. While the 6 p.m. seating is sold out, Lidia’s is still accepting reservations for the second seating at 8:15 p.m. 


La Vigilia dates back to the Middle Ages, when meat was luxury from which people abstained on holy days. Throughout Italy then, and still today, friends and family gather on Christmas Eve to fast, or eat a simple meal of fish and veggies. Although the exact translation is left to the individual, the seven dishes are thought by many to represent the Seven Sacraments.


Lidia’s Feast of the Seven Fishes dinner is exclusively available on Sunday, Dec. 24, at 6 p.m. (SOLD OUT), and 8:15 p.m. for dine-in only. The cost is $60 per person plus tax and gratuity.
