miami restaurants open on Christmas 2020

Christmas is around the corner—how will you be celebrating? If you plan on leaving the cooking to someone else, Dish Miami has you covered with this handy list of Miami restaurants open on Christmas Eve and/or Christmas Day. Happy holidays!

Bourbon Steak

On Christmas Day, guests can enjoy a three-course prix-fixe dinner at Aventura’s Bourbon Steak. The menu includes highlights like a 16 oz. Delmonico ribeye, an ice-cold shellfish tower, and espresso panna cotta; supplements are also available for an additional cost. The three-course menu is priced at $110 per person and is dine-in only. 

Eating House 

Coral Gable’s Eating House will be going all out on Christmas Eve with a Noche Buena brunch to remember. From 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., the eatery will be cooking up coquito pancakes, lechon asado benedicts, and croqueta preparada alongside its usual brunch offerings; you’ll definitely need a nap afterward. On Christmas Day, Eating House will be open for regular dinner service.

Glass & Vine

The weather has started to cool off, which means it’s outdoor dining time in Miami. On Christmas Eve, head over to Glass & Vine for a memorable meal with a view. The Coconut Grove restaurant will be offering its regular menu of tasty bites like watermelon salad, tuna tartare, steak frites, and more. Glass & Vine will be closed on Christmas.

Le Jardinier 

On Christmas Eve, Le Jardinier in the Design District will be open for lunch and dinner. During dinner service, guests can order off the usual a la carte menu or a special holiday tasting menu priced at $95. This unique five-course tasting includes selections such as sunchoke and foie gras terrine, Maine lobster, and ricotta agnolotti.

Le Zoo

Bal Harbour’s Le Zoo is open on Christmas, offering a $55 prime rib special. The dish is a feast in itself, featuring roast beef prime rib, Yorkshire pudding, Bordeaux red wine thyme sauce, potato puree, and roasted parsnip. Le Zoo is also offering its regular a la carte menu.  

Lilikoi Organic Living

That includes delectable selections like the chicken and brie sandwich, house-smoked salmon, vegan nachos, tuna niçoise salad, and mushroom farro risotto. Rounding out the menu is Lilikoi’s fresh juice selection, which is one of the tastiest in town.
