It’s the holiday season, and that means it is also time to start putting on some winter weight. Hey, you might not want to but it happens to all of us, and at the right restaurants, the process can be quite delightful.

But where to eat in LA during the holidays? That is the question, and today we will be supplying the answer. You want good food. We want you to have good food. These things in mind, what comes next is pretty obvious, right? Read on for a guide to the best places to eat in Los Angeles during the holidays!

The Belvedere

Up next, a Los Angeles holiday restaurant that features a name that is almost as fancy as its location. Beverly Hills.

That’s right, we are now dining in style. The Belvedere features a menu of crab, lobster, calamari, and more. A four-course meal altogether, that will leave you stuffed, and quite delighted.

The atmosphere at the Belvedere is fancy, but not overwhelmingly formal. Standard holiday attire (nicer clothes, not your ugly sweater) will do fine.

You have the option to either sit outside on their gorgeous patio or inside. Seating goes from 5:30-10:30, but it is a popular spot, so try to get a reservation as you plan your holiday meal.

Cale Mare

If you are looking for a newer LA holiday restaurant, think about heading to Cale Mare. This restaurant is only in their first year, but they are poised to get things right with their holiday, Christmas Eve feast.

As the name may have alluded, this is a place that specializes in Italian fare and that is what you can expect to get when you make your Christmas Eve dinner reservation.

The menu seems to have a big emphasis on seafood.

Scallops, halibut, and more. Lovers of pasta and seafood should give serious thought to sharing in Cale Mare’s first Christmas Eve celebration.

Craft Los Angeles

Craft, in Los Angels, has a well-established reputation for making exquisite food. Their holiday menu does more than follow suit. The evening begins with family style appetizers, including steak tartare, and several smaller pates, such as olives.

You then choose your own entre. Options range from risotto to quail, to tortellini. The meal ends with of Craft’s renowned deserts.

At $145 per plate, this is certainly one of the pricier options you will come across. But hey. It’s the holidays. Think about treating yourself.
