Consisting of at least seven seafood dishes, the Feast of the Seven Fishes – also known as, La Vigilia or The Vigil – is a massive feast celebrated on Christmas Eve. Historically speaking, the Feast of the Seven Fishes is an ode to abstinence, a Roman Catholic tradition whereby meat, milk, or animal fat can not be consumed on Saturdays, eve’s of specific holy holidays, and during Lent.

Popular among many Italian American families today, the feast’s origins can be traced back to  Southern Italy, where warm coastal waters provide a sustainable food source year round.

Chef de Cuisine, Jason La Iacona, will take us on a journey down the Sicilian coast line to enjoy a traditional Feast of the Seven Fishes. Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased here through our Eventbrite page!

As a wave of health consciousness sweeps the country by storm, sustainable farm practices are a trending topic of discussion. With all these new buzzwords – farm to table, grass fed, all natural, certified organic, free range – there can be a lot of misinformation that floats around.

More and more people are concerned with what they are eating and how it was raised. This trend has forced restaurants to help educate their consumers on which practices they support. The result has lead to a culmination of distributors, chefs, restaurants, and consumers alike celebrating these practices at collaborative tasting events.

When we think of these farms, we like to imagine a small family owned farm sunk into the rolling hills of the Tennessee valley. This fairy tale image comes to life at Bear Creek Farm.

Located on the outskirts of Leipers Fork, The Cherry Family began raising all-natural Angus beef and heritage hogs with rise in consumer demand. All beef and pork products are free range, grass-fed, and hormone and antibiotic free. Their meat is consistently graded prime or high choice – an honor that is received by only a small percentage of beef nationwide.

Their commitment as a sustainable forward thinking farm and their focus on quality over quantity is a refreshing take on pork and beef production. We are thrilled to be partnering with Bear Creek Farms for a Tasting Dinner on Thursday, October 29, 2015 at 6:30PM.

For ticket information, head over to our Eventbrite page. We look forward to seeing you!



Saffire has long been a Franklin, TN staple for many. However, we’ve started to change a few things up, and people are starting to notice.

Over the last year, we have put together a new team to bring Saffire back into the fold, and that is exactly what we did. With our renovated kitchen space and head chef, Jason La Iacona’s fresh new menu, we were able to reclaim our title as one of the Best Restaurant’s in Williamson County.

3rd Place – Best Restaurant Williamson County

Huge thanks to The Nashville Scene, and everyone who voted. We couldn’t have done this without y’all.
