Restaurant dining this December looks like most of 2020: dining outdoors where possible and getting takeout or delivery. This holiday season, local restaurants are ramping up their offerings up with special menus for Christmas as well as Hanukkah. There are feasts with traditional roast turkey or ham as the centerpiece as well as modern twists on festive meals.
This curated map isn’t an exhaustive list, so we encourage you to contact your favorite spot and inquire about their holiday celebration menus. Our local restaurants need your support more than ever.
Note: This map will be updated throughout the month. Map points are not ranked.
Some restaurants have outdoor seating, while others continue to offer takeout and/or delivery only; check each eatery’s hours and mode of operation before you visit. This should not be taken as endorsement for on-site dining, as there are still safety concerns: for updated information on coronavirus cases in your area, please visit the County of San Diego website. Studies indicate that there is a lower exposure risk when outdoors, but the level of risk involved with patio dining is contingent on restaurants following strict social distancing and other safety guidelines.Read More
