“When you’re Greek, you always do it a little more… extra,” Vasiliki Tsiouris (near right) tells KYW Newsradio.

Their holiday table is a feast of Mediterranean dishes.

“We love gathering together, and it centers around food, so the more the better,” she says, “and there’s always a variety.”

For something a little more traditional, chef David Boyle (right) says his restaurant, Davio’s, will be open on the holiday for a Feast of the Seven Fishes.

“The Feast of the Seven Fishes is a Christmas Eve traditional dinner where only seafood is served,” he explains.

“It’s finally nice to finally expand into a bigger kitchen and be able to do a little more,” says chef Mike Stollwenwerk (right), who plans to turn the old location into his second restaurant, which will be called “Brick.”

“We loved the neighborhood at 1708 Lombard,” Stollenwerk says, “so we’re going to hold onto the spot and reconceptualize it into something that the neighborhood would enjoy.”
