escaTheir renowned chef plans his dinner every afternoon at 4pm, however, their Christmas Eve Feast of the Seven Fishes is going to be preplanned for a whole five days! So get excited, this place knows the oceans inhabitants and how to cook ‘em! (count 52 dinner options) Oh yeah, expect a steep bill

back west forty diningA Jewish-Chinese dinner is being put together here. Sounds special and were definitely excited about more than the steamed star anise pork buns or the tea smoked duck.  It’s the Chocolate Babka with the Vanilla Ice cream that seems to be wooing us from this champion of a menu.

fatty-cue-wvIf you can hear your Grill compelling you to host another one your mid-winter BBQ bashes, then this place is for you.  Seriously, their Christmas Eve southern BBQ is being served by the half pound, at $18 for a half pound of pulled pork or $14 for a half pound of rib along with an enormous list of sides they might as well call this the “Return of the turkey Gobble 2.” So strap on those boots and take a little hike to good old BK or get on down to the Westside on that trusty yellow sleigh and chow down.
