Top Spots To Dine Out Christmas Eve In Boston

Tis the season to officially celebrate with Christmas now less than a week away. If you plan to host the Christmas Day holiday at home, one of the most indulgent ways to do just that is with a super juicy KellyBronze dry aged turkey available from local stockist Savenor’s. When it comes to pre-holiday merriment, kick the festivities off right by checking out these five top places in Boston to dine out Christmas Eve.

Located inside the Four Seasons Hotel, The Bristol was one of our favorite spots in Back Bay to sip champagne this summer. When it comes to Christmas Eve dining, this haute spot’s winter menu is a standout for starters like A5 Wagyu carpaccio, seared Hudson Valley foie gras, lobster cocktail and their uber indulgent seafood tower overflowing with colossal shrimp and surprise finds like Sockeye salmon poke. For main events, don’t miss the braised Colorado short ribs, seared halibut filet or roasted duo of duck in a port wine reduction.

L’Espalier will be rolling out the red carpet this Christmas Eve with an elaborate six-course holiday menu. Located adjacent to the Mandarin Oriental, Boston on Boylston Street and steps from shopping at the Prudential Center and Newbury Street, this is the perfect haute spot to relax and unwind. Finish your exquisite dinner off with a leisurely walk throughout Back Bay to check out the holiday lights.

Mastro’s is all about delivering an exemplary experience and Boston’s very own Ocean Club waterfront outpost is no exception. From the sexy interior to the impeccable service, everything here is always on point. This holiday, the revered steakhouse will be serving up their seasonal Chateaubriand, a large center-cut roast of beef tenderloin served with Béarnaise sauce and peppercorn sauce on the side. We recommend pairing it up with their decadent Alaskan King Crab Black Truffle Gnocchi and Lobster Mashed Potatoes for the ultimate indulgence.

Best known for his trio of restaurants (Deuxave, Boston Chops and dbar), It was just a waiting game to see what chef/owner Chris Coombs had next up his sleeve. The latest Boston Chops haute rendition is located in Downtown Crossing and this holiday will be serving up a luxury seafood plateau, golden Osetra caviar and seared foie gras starters. Move along to a 20-ounce Chateaubriand or John Dewar’s butcher cut for an unforgettable experience.
