Sometimes all you want for Christmas is someone else doing the cooking. In New Orleans, there are a number of restaurants that will be open on December 25, Christmas day, for just this purpose. There's a little something all over town, including casual neighborhood spots, destination restaurants, a slew of Besh Group hotspots, and reliable eateries for Chinese and Indian food, as well as sushi. Eater Nola recommends you call ahead to make reservations for all of these restaurants, despite the number of people in your party.
Also, if you need help with your holiday baking and cooking, here are some handy holiday take-out options:
- Willa Jean has online ordering for everything from sides to pie. Pick up available on Christmas Eve and Christmas morning.
