This year’s holiday looks a little more normal than last year’s, but with new COVID-19 variants on the rise, including the omicron strain’s arrival in Washington, dining out or traveling still comes with precautions. Luckily, there are plenty of excellent restaurants offering dine-in or takeout options for Christmas day, making the holiday a little less stressful. From Goldfinch Tavern’s four-course dinner offerings of prime rib, burrata, and oysters, to Musang’s Noche Buena meal kits with Filipinx favorites like lumpia, pancit, and beef machado, these 12 Seattle restaurants have the holiday feast covered.
Restaurants offering dine-in service on Christmas day are indicated, and making a reservation beforehand is strongly encouraged. Those planning to dine out as a group should make sure everyone has proof of vaccination ready beforehand. The following selections are listed from north to south.
King County requires proof of vaccination, or a negative COVID-19 test within the last 72 hours, for everyone ages 12+ at indoor establishments, restaurants, and bars. Studies indicate there is a lower exposure risk when eating outdoors, and the level of risk involved with patio dining is contingent on restaurants following strict social distancing and other safety guidelines.
