Weekender: 'End of the World' Meals, Holiday Tea & More

Canary Square
As you lighten up on your holiday shopping, take some time to celebrate the solstice (or end of the world, as it were), feast on the seven fishes or relax with a holiday tea.

This Friday, still looking for more ways to indulge your last day on earth? Check out the “End of the World Relish in Revelry” at the Biltmore Bar & Grille or Local 149. At the Biltmore, in Newton Upper Falls, you’ll find a hot habanero lime hell bones bar snack ($6), a plate of house-made Andouille sausage, confit pork belly, fat beans ($21), all washed down with the Apocalypse Cocktail, a nice blend of tequila, Aperol, Clear Creek cherry liquor, and lemon ($10; 617-527-2550). Over at the Local 149 in South Boston, you get the habanero lime hell bones plate with “End of the World” purple slaw ($16), and the Mayan Michelada’s All Night Long beer cocktails with house hot sauce, lime, Maggi in light beer with slated rim, and can’t go wrong with $2 a pop (617-269-0900). Both places begin serving at 4 PM.

Saturday, head to Canary Square in Jamaica Plain for a traditional Feast of 7 Fishes, which includes warm escarole white bean and baccalo salad ($11); eel braised with olives, Calabrian chilies and tomatoes ($9), and baby octopus with potatoes and salsa verde ($12). Choose each dish a la carte or indulge at $45 per person (617-524-2500).

This Saturday and Sunday at L’Espalier in the Back Bay tea sommelier Cynthia Gold presents a special Holiday Tea with tea eggnog and festive foods (1:30 PM; $50 per person, $35 for kids under 12; 617-262-3023).
