The holidays will definitely look different this year, but that doesn’t mean the food you consume needs to be any different, even if the number of people you’re sharing it with is smaller. These restaurants and eateries have made the holiday meal preparations easy.
Order soon! Many of these restaurants are closing their orders in the next couple days, so drool over their menus now and get your order in.
