You will NOT be put on the naughty list because you don’t cook dinner on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day.

We have it upon good authority that the last thing Santa wants is for you to be all stressed-out, frantically banging pots and pans in the kitchen.

And when you pause long enough to reflect upon it, wouldn’t be more in the spirit of the season to spend as much time as you can with loved ones?

And the best last-minute gift? Dining out. Your treat.

So here’s a list of some of our favorite restaurant specials (and a few cocktail ones too!) in Broward and Palm Beach counties.
