Christmas dinner is probably the most important dinner of the year, especially when you live with family. Let’s talk a little bit about its details. If you live in the United States, the blockbuster holiday dinner is already known: turkey, ham, pumpkin pie, wine… while the children go to bed excited waiting for Santa. This is great, who can’t love it? But there are also less orthodox holiday dinners that can be a whole experience, for example, eating typical Christmas food from another part of the world, or perhaps exploring some fusion cuisine that gives the night a unique touch. In this second option, we want to focus on presenting you our list of 4 best restaurants for christmas dinner in Miami. Let’s get started!
4 best restaurants for christmas dinner in Miami: ho, ho, yummy!
In this article, we will highlight some of the best restaurants in Miami for Christmas dinner. But, as we already tell you, not the traditional dinner, but a creative one. Let’s make this holiday a journey to discover new and delicious food.
But first, here are a few things to keep in mind when choosing a restaurant for Christmas dinner in Miami:
- The type of food you like. Are you looking for Christmas food or maybe something more avant garde?
- The atmosphere you want. Do you want a place with a festive and lively atmosphere? Or do you prefer something more quiet and intimate?
- The budget. Christmas dinner prices in Miami vary depending on the restaurant.
This is our curated list
1.- Punto criollo
This place claims to be the best Venezuelan restaurant in Florida. And to honor its people, at Christmas time they serve the traditional Venezuelan hallacas, which are an experience in themselves.
It is a kind of tamale wrapped in banana leaf and steamed, filled with corn dough and a very intense flavor stew, with meat, pork, olives, capers, raisins, paprika, sweet bell pepper and more.
At Punto Criollo you can also enjoy another typical Venezuelan Christmas dish, pan de jamón (ham bread), and the traditional side dish of this date, ensalada de gallina (chicken salad). We highly recommend this Christmas meal and also the place, with warm service.
2.- Xixón Spanish Restaurant
Do you want to take a Christmas stroll through Spanish food? This is the place. From the moment you arrive, the intense aroma of their paella catches you. It is located in Coral Gables and apart from serving exceptional food, it is also a wine bar.
Its Christmas menu, as well as the daily menu, is full of gems. Their roast suckling pig in Segovian style, their Asturian fabada or their fidegua in squid ink are out of this world.
We propose this as an extraordinary experience to spend a different Christmas dinner.
3.- Café Versailles
They say that this is the most famous Cuban restaurant in the world and maybe this is not so true, but what is completely true is that its food is outstanding, and obviously at Christmas time it is no exception.
With more than 20 years of history, this place is well known for serving authentic Cuban sanduches and other dishes from the island such as ropa vieja, moros y cristianos and palomilla.
At Christmas time this place is full of people and the Latin vibe is at its peak. It is a very pleasant experience. The recommendation is one hundred percent.
