This Christmas, The Cavalier will be serving from its regular menu of rich and delectable dishes—think heritage pork chops with sweet potato latkes and Brussels sprouts; and parmesan gnocchi with fried lavender, scotched duck eggs—and a few holiday extras like eggnog with apple brandy and spiced rum.
You’ve decked the halls, bought gifts made in San Francisco and even chopped down your own Christmas tree. Next on the agenda: planning Christmas dinner. By which we mean making reservations at one of these restaurants open on Christmas Day and Eve. This Christmas, don’t let meal preparation get in the way of warm-and-fuzzy holiday time with friends and family. Instead, grab your loved ones—kids and all—and head to one of our favorite San Francisco restaurants serving up brunch, lunch and dinner on Christmas Day. Nibble on traditional holiday dishes at The Top of the Mark or The Cliff House or dig in to non-traditional fare at Fang and Campton Place. Whatever you choose, these 12 restaurants are ready to fulfill your Christmas wishes.
