  • Second Course
    Mackerel In Scapece, cauliflower cous cous, preserved orange & shaved apple
  • Third Course
    Shrimp & Crayfish Ravioli, blood orange, fried capers & squid ink citronete
  • Fourth Course
    Seared Black Bass & a Prawn, manilla clams, braised fennel, toasted pignoli nuts & red chili peperonata
  • Dessert
    Panettone donuts

This is a prix fixe meal at $65/per person with an optional $25 wine pairing. Vesta is located at 21-02 30th Avenue, Astoria.

Just called to discover they are NOT offering a La Vigilia menu this year. Very disappointed. They are fully booked for Christmas eve after 7.30 PM.
