New York, NY (PRWEB) December 26, 2012
It used to be that the only place to eat out on Christmas day was at the local Chinese establishment and for many New Yorkers that has become a tradition. This year however, those not staying home for a Christmas dinner will have a variety of choices. Perhaps the recent economic stress of hurricane Sandy is causing more owners to leave their doors open this Christmas, or, perhaps it is just Christmas spirit. DNAInfo.com lists several options in their article "Where to Eat on Christmas" and Bright Lights Business has a few more great choices to add to the list.
For those looking for Midtown New York City restaurants open on Christmas day BLB recommends Lexington and Brass. This modern bistro-like restaurant is part of the EMM Group of concepts and is co-owned by Mark Birnbaum. Bright Lights Business observes that Lexington and Brass prides itself on excellent customer service. This Christmas they will be offering a $52 prix-fixe menu with options like delicious Nantucket Bay scallops and rack of lamb with poached pear.
In the downtown area BLB’s choice is Bouley. Chef David Bouley whips up French dishes with an Asian flare and consistently receives 5 star reviews. BLB also loves the cooking classes that Bouley offers. This Christmas Day they will offer a six course tasting menu for $195 with wine pairing for $315.
Lastly, BLB recommends, as OpenTable’s Diners’ Choice winner, Tocqueville near Union Square. Tocquevillecooks up American cuisine in style. This Christmas day they are offering holiday inspired and seasonal dishes with a $95 prix-fixe menu. They also offer a child price of $55. Selections include a butternut squash risotto and smoked duck breast. BLB is pleased that Tocqueville even concocted two special holiday cocktails.
For a stress-free Christmas day let one of BLB’s top restaurant picks do the cooking. With so many businesses leaving their doors open to diners it is sure to be a bright Christmas.
