If you’re like us—well, like most Americans—you probably can’t get through December 25 without at least one viewing of A Christmas Story. In case you’ve been asleep for the past 30 years, the blast-from-the-past, Cleveland-based cult film features Ralphie, his family and their holiday misfortunes, and is ranked as one of the season’s all-time best flicks.
Lucky for fanatics, chef Chip Roman and his team at Conshohocken’s Blackfish are getting cheeky this season, throwing the film in the limelight for its 30th anniversary by hosting the ultimate Christmas Eve feast—one themed around A Christmas Story.
At this multi-course dinner on Dec. 24, no dogs will run off with the turkey, and you won’t have to resort to Chinese food. Roman will entertain movie buffs with five whimsical courses that are symbolic to the film’s forever-memorable scenes.
From “Flick’s Frozen Tongue” to start, a corned veal tongue with horseradish and pickled mustard; to the “Leg Lamp,” a leg of lamb with barley and broccolini; and the “Bumpus Turkey Dinner,” a turkey thigh with pomme puree, you have yet to experience A Christmas Story quite like this. The “Chop Suey Palace Duck” with sweet and sour eggplant and “Don’t Forget Your Ovaltine” mousse promise to end the night’s culinary hilarity on a high note.
Cost is $55 per person. For more information, visit blackfishrestaurant.com.
