The holidays are going to look a lot different this year for all of us. Family gatherings are going to be smaller, and a lot of us will be sticking close to home instead of traveling. But our local restaurants want to make sure that even though your celebration may be smaller this year, it doesn’t have to be any less delicious. If you are looking at a downsized celebration or in need of a little less stress this holiday season, check out this list of restaurants offering meals for your holiday.
