2019 Christmas Holiday Dinner Celebrations
Hello everyone! How was your Christmas this year? I actually relaxed and had a quiet Christmas this year. I originally planned to only sit at home and watch Christmas holiday movies while drinking hot chocolate and spiked coffees. Last minute though, my roommate and I decided to go out to eat for the holiday. For the first time though, almost every restaurant that we called was closed for the holiday; very few restaurants were open this year.
In previous years, we had numerous options for open restaurants on Christmas Day that offered Christmas dinner. This year though, it seems that almost everyone was closed and took off for the holiday. Some that were open, were not serving Christmas dinner at all. They only had the regular restaurant menu.
After calling around to restaurants for about an hour, my roommate found a place that was open and serving Christmas dinner. The place that she got was Georgia Brown. This restaurant is located in DC, and this would be our first time eating there. Though it was the only restaurant open, I was glad that we tried it! The food was very fresh! The desserts were excellent and rich as well!
Georgia Brown's had a limited menu for the holiday though and it was quite expensive for Christmas dinner; it cost $60 per person and it is a Southern-style restaurant, so you can get fresh well-done food.
For Christmas dinner, you could choose 1 appetizer, 1 entree, and 1 dessert. I chose the shrimp soup for my appetizer. For my entree, I chose the roasted turkey Christmas dinner that came with stuffing, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce, green beans, and gravy. For dessert, I chose the chocolate peppermint cake.
My roommate also got the roasted turkey Christmas dinner, the crispy chicken livers for her appetizer, and the cheesecake for her dessert.
In addition to these, Georgia Brown's also had mixed greens, shrimp and grits, fried green tomatoes, salad, sweet flavored Southern-style teas, and a dessert cobbler to choose from on their holiday menu. It was hard to turn down the cobbler, but you could only get one dessert, so I decided to go for something rich and with chocolate 😋!
I liked everything that I ordered, but I did not like my roommate's crispy chicken livers. Yuck 😣! Everything else though, I loved them! The food was great, especially the desserts and the Christmas dinner, so I did enjoy this holiday dinner. This year turned out to be a great relaxing peaceful Christmas 💛.
