Tis the season to abandon the kitchen and let local restaurants do the holiday cooking. Many restaurants around Minneapolis and St. Paul are offering take-home Christmas feasts, from Southern-style smoked brisket and candied yams to Venezuelan feasts of hallacas, pan de jamon, and pernil. Others are serving dine-in meals on Christmas day, swapping in dishes like red wine-braised beef short ribs for the more traditional ham. Either way you plan it, don’t overlook these enticing holiday dessert options, either: butterscotch pudding, Honeycrisp apple crostata, and eggnog custard pie. Here are 13 places to order a holiday meal around the Twin Cities.
