Holiday Feasts The Will Leave You Feeling Merry and Stuffed!
By Annie Abrahamson
On the first day of Christmas, the Gaslamp gave to me….
A festive list of restaurants ready to serve up some fun and delicious Christmas cheer! Dining out on the holidays is the perfect way to celebrate with friends and family without the stress of cooking for a large group. So, instead of dashing through the kitchen, leave the food prep to the professionals and spend Christmas feasting away!
Elegant and warm, Asti Ristorante is serving up an Italian-style, 3-course on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. Choose from delicious dishes like Costolette Brasate (braised short ribs) or Filet Mignon. Bring the whole family; the little ones can enjoy a special 2-course meal of their own! $59 for adults, $21 for kids. Make your reservations here.
The Gaslamp’s beloved cafe is getting in the holiday spirit by launching a new line-up of kitchen libations, vegan hot drinks, and organic teas and coffee! On Christmas Day, prepare to sip as well as dine with a special 3-course preset menu for both brunch and dinner. See the menu and make your reservation here.
Rockin’ Baja Lobster is giving a gift to your taste buds with their “Holiday Bucket”! This seafood-lover’s dream includes a WHOLE lobster, baja style shrimp, grilled chicken, skirt steak, crab cluster, grilled corn on the cob, a queso dip appetizer, and a partridge in a pear tree! (That last item isn’t actually included.) For just $69.99 per person, this feast is hard to beat!
Santa’s got the presents, so Rustic Root will take care of dinner! This Christmas Day, they are serving a special three-course meal with delicious choices like Crab Stuffed Deviled Eggs, Seared Scallops Orzotto, and Eggnog Cheesecake. Bring the whole gang and dig into some family-style side dishes too! Save your seat here.
Wake up early, open your presents, and head over to Union Gaslamp for a special Christmas Day brunch (don’t forget to change out of your pajamas). Kitchen opens at 10am.
