Christmas Restaurant

We are coming to NYC for Christmas, and I am looking for the most beautifully decorated place to eat for Christmas. It looked like Tavern on the Green was lit up and wonderfully decorated, but I have read nothing but bad reviews about the food. Any ideas on other places?

  1. I should mention that we are coming in the first weekend of December, and do not need a restaurant for Christmas Day, instead we are looking for a romantic holiday place to eat to celebrate my birthday.

    1. Hello,
      Can you be more specific as far as cuisine and price? There are literally thousands of pretty restaurants so if you can give a little more info, the recs will be much better.

        Great question. I would like to stay French, American, or Italian. It would be nice if there were a tasting menu under $100 pp. However, our main objective is to be somewhere very festive in the holiday spirit.

      2. River Cafe does a good Christmas dinner.
