The holidays are a nice time to share a meal with family, but cooking for everyone can be overwhelming — not to mention the cleaning and prep required when having 20 or more holiday guests over! This year, consider skipping the tradition of cooking and make a new tradition of dining out or ordering food from one of these excellent Oklahoma City businesses.
Located inside the Skirvin Hilton Hotel, this contemporary American restaurant will be open and accepting reservations on December 25. Their dinner menu includes luxurious appetizers like crab bisque and beef carpaccio, along with entrees like the Prime flatiron steak and bourbon-brined pork chops. The elegant ambiance inside this historic building will make you feel very pampered on the holidays.
Serving American cuisine with French influences, the Viceroy Grille is the perfect spot for an indulgent holiday dinner. Early on Christmas Day, they will serve a brunch menu, switching to dinner later in the day. The official menu will surely include favorites like their omelets, carved chicken and salmon. Make your reservation online through Open Table to make sure you don't miss out.
Sit back and enjoy some live jazz music as you dine at 1832 Steakhouse inside the Choctaw Casino & Resort. The restaurant is accepting reservations for December 25. Their menu includes starters like the charred oysters and classic shrimp cocktails, along with entrees like Prime rib and Black Angus filet mignon.
Perhaps you don't particularly want to dine out for the holidays, but you don't want to cook, either. The OKC Museum of Art offers a good in-between solution. They're preparing holiday meals that you can pick up December 24 between 12 and 3 p.m. Choose from dinner for two or eight. The menu includes favorites like seared duck breast, sweet potato salad and stuffing with apples and sausage. Contact them to place your order by December 20.
Another option is to let Honey Baked Ham prepare the main dish, and have all of your party guests bring along a side dish to share. You can order your ham and they'll have it ready for pickup at your desired time. They offer 8 –10 pound boneless hams, turkeys and bone-in hams, all with delicious flavors. They do offer side dishes like green bean casserole and sweet potatoes if you desire a completely catered meal.
Whether you dine out or order in, we hope you enjoy your holiday meal. If any residents at Springs at May Lakes or Springs at Memorial know of other OKC restaurants that will be open for the holidays, feel free to share them below. We look forward to hearing about your favorite holiday dishes and dining experiences.
