While Christmas Day is traditionally reserved for spending as long as we can in pajamas, enjoying a cozy time with family under the tree just freed of all its gifts, Christmas Eve is the ideal opportunity to dress the family and venture out for a festive holiday dinner. Here are our North Fork restaurant suggestions for spending time with your loved ones this Christmas Eve.
Vine Street Café is a warm and intimate space on Shelter Island, perfect for a cozy Christmas Eve. Indulge in American cuisine in a fine dining setting. Enjoy a locally sourced meal complemented by local wine by the fireplace at Jedediah Hawkins in Jamesport. If you have family coming in from out of town, Bistro 72 at Hotel Indigo East End in Riverhead is an ideal choice and can accommodate larger groups. In Mattituck, aMano Restaurant serves their regular menu in addition to an Italian “Feast of the Seven Fishes” menu. Bon apetit!
