Seven Fishes on Christmas Eve?

I've recently moved to Middletown and I'm looking for a place doing a Feast of the Seven Fishes dinner in the area. My Google skills have been put to the test and I'm coming up empty. I found one place up in Woodbridge but we're trying to say down in the shore area.

Any ideas?

I wish I could help, I live a few towns away, but I'm not sure of any places. I even did some asking around through friends, and friends of friends. It would be a good thing to know, in general.

I will say, though, that Woodbridge isn't terribly far off. Maybe a half hour from Middletown, depending on what end of Middletown you're at.

I wasn't sure whether to start a new thread on this topic or revive this one, but I figured the fewer threads the better. I have been looking for a place that will offer the Feast of Seven Fishes for Christmas this year in the NJ/Philly area, but haven't seen anything that looks very interesting. They have what looks to be a good menu at Grissini Restaurant, but the reviews for this place seem spotty. Some restaurants may not even have announced for 2014 yet.

 

I was hoping for a little advice and some other dining options. Thanks.

 

(Grissini Offerings for $75.00:)

Vongole Origanate: Clams with Oregano and Breadcrumbs

Alici Marinati: Marinated Fresh Anchovies
Linguine con le Vogole: Linguine with Clams

Gamberoni Casalinga Siciliana: Jumbo Shrimp Marsala Housewife Style

Thanks,

 

I've been able to come up with a short list for Philly that includes Fork, Catherine Lombardi's, Paradiso, Positano Coast, Mamma Maria Ristorante, Branzino, Osteria NJ, and a new place called Palladino’s. So I think that list gives me a good start. Thanks DJyee for the suggestions.
