You're spending Christmas Eve with family, but that doesn't mean you want to spend Christmas Eve with your family's cooking. You'll be happier with the family recipes of Lidia Bastianich at her restaurant, Lidia's Kansas City
(101 West 22nd Street). The Crossroads spot holds an annual Feast of the Seven Fishes — a traditional Italian meal that brings family together around, you guessed it, seven courses of fish. The $40 seafood extravaganza starts at 6:30 p.m. See lidias-kc.com
