Give yourself and the family a break from the kitchen by heading out to eat at some of Austin’s best and most festive. To give you some ideas, Eater rounded up a list of Austin restaurants open on Christmas Eve (Friday, December 24) and Christmas Day (Saturday, December 25).
Find special prix fixe dinners, expansive brunch buffets, unfussy regular menus, and even much-needed coffee. Make reservations soon because most of these restaurants will book up very quickly (the Four Seasons’ Ciclo is already sold out for its brunch buffet, although the waitlist may open up.)
As with all businesses right now, be sure to call ahead to make sure each restaurant is still open or if there are updates on current offerings and service models, as things are changing constantly. Be sure to wear a mask, tip well, and, if you’re ordering delivery, try to order directly from the restaurant themselves.
