    Aba Mediterranean: Hanukkah Dine-in and Christmas Eve To-Go

    We recently dined at Aba – thanks to the generosity of the bourbon masters at Garrison Brothers – and were, yeah, pretty much blown away by the excellence of the food there. No wonder people are ordering in advance to get this Christmas Eve Package for two that features wild mushroom hummus (pictured), whipped feta with persimmon, village salad, grilled chicken kebab, braised short rib, crispy brussels sprouts, and sticky date cake. ($118.) And, if you're dining in from Dec. 18-26, you can feast on such Hanukkah specials as parmesan and potato brussels sprout latkes, shawarma spiced brisket confit with sesame pumpkin puree currant gremolata, and more.

    Carpenters Hall: Christmas Dinner

    This lovely restaurant's got a special holiday feast available (on Christmas day and the previous evening) as a prix-fixe menu by reservation or even some walk-ups. How does butternut squash bisque, oysters Rockefeller, Natchitoches meat pies, carved New York strip roast, garlic mashed potatoes, Yorkshire pudding, and more sound to you? Yeah – it's music to our ears as well. And – you can take home full orders of that Bûche de Noël dessert (with cream cheese buttercream, garnished with espresso powder, dark chocolate, sugared cranberry, and toasted coconut) and make all the sweet teeth in your family smile in gustatory pleasure. (Order ASAP, this primo confection goes fast!)
