There are plenty of local carry-out options to give you a night off from the kitchen for the holidays this year. Many offer options for a smaller number of guests, anticipating smaller gatherings this year. There are menus for Christmas Eve, Christmas day, and New Year's Eve. One place even offers a fun menu they call "The Jewish Christmas". If you want to cook yourself, there's also an option to order a special cut of meat.
Whatever menu fits your needs, make sure to get your order in as soon as you know what you want. Once the restaurant reaches their prep capacity, they'll probably stop taking orders, even if that's before their originally planned deadline!
Here are a few of the menus we've seen. We'll update as needed, and add new menus as we see them.
