Christmas is a holiday for good cheer and spending joyous time with loved ones, and sometimes being in the kitchen can get in the way of that. Forget about stressing out and make reservations to celebrate Christmas Eve or Christmas Day at one of the top restaurants in town. You'll be wined and dined with nothing to worry about anything but the check.
Looking to get out of the house this holiday season? For four days leading up to Christmas, The Hermosa Inn is offering an all-inclusive package with a one-night stay for two, a $75 dinner credit per person, and a $36 breakfast credit. The Christmas prix fixe dinner ($75) will be offered from 4 to 9 p.m. on the 24th and 12 to 8 p.m. on the 25th. Starters include meatball soup with ricotta dumplings and braised pork belly with crimson gold apple, cheddar beer grits, and maple gastrique. Diners get a choice of five entrées such as veal scallopini with prosciutto, roasted duck breast with Brussels sprouts, and butternut squash ravioli with black kale, rock shrimp, and sherry-sage butter. Desserts all feature a seasonal twist: warm flourless chocolate cake with candy cane ice cream, pecan pie with cinnamon bourbon anglaise, and pan-fried bread pudding with rum raisin ice cream. Call 602-955-8614 to book an overnight package, or 602-955-7878 for Christmas Eve and Christmas dinner reservations.
