Davio'S Lynnfield

Christmas Eve lunch at Davio'S in Lynnfield. Christmas Eve is really the big day in Sweden, today we watch Donald Duck with Friends celebrating Christmas, a tradition that goes back to the 1950's and then we open the presents followed by Christmas dinner where you can find things like pickled herring (ick), lutefisk (dry salted cod served with wallpaper glue), ham and other goodies.

Extra extra Dry Tanqueray Martini, straight up with a twist. I must admit it was a very generous twist ;-).

Fried Oyster BLT. I sort of expected a sandwich even if this was listed under apps. Very fresh oysters lightly fried on a bed of tartar sauce and served with tomatoes and an interesting dressing. I asked the bartender what the dressing was and she comes back with "Lemon aioli" but I suspect she meant Lemon vinaigrette. Another really excellent lunch. The place was really quiet today apart from doing a brisk business selling gift cards.
