Where to Get Holiday Meals in the Twin Cities

For many of us, Christmas dinner will look a little smaller this year.

No drunk uncle whose political knowledge all comes from Facebook. No fake smiling while opening up the present of a hideous hand-crocheted sweater from cousin Cathy. And no, incredibly long, bang your head against the wall, goodbyes from family members you see once a year. 

BUT that doesn’t mean you can’t have a proper Christmas meal while paying homage to the year of the ultimate dumpster fire, 2020. 

If you don’t want to lift a finger during this holiday season, we get it. Let the incredible restaurants of the Twin Cities do it for you! Whether you are looking for a take and bake, a full catered meal, or just enough for two – check out these restaurants for all your holiday needs.
