With darkness at 4:30 p.m. and Christmas lights providing some much needed 2020 cheer, it’s that time of year — thought it looks very different than Christmases past in Nashville and beyond. The Green Hills traffic is a little lighter, and the Amazon boxes are a little heavier, with more people staying at home. Plenty of restaurants have adapted to takeout-only holiday feasts (more on that to come), but for those who feel comfortable dining out, these Nashville restaurants are open for either lunch or dinner (or drinks) on Christmas Day, Friday, December 25.
*Reservations are recommended at most, and parties (as all social gatherings) are limited to a maximum of 8 people in Nashville given the current spike in COVID-19 cases.
Disclaimer: A number of restaurants on this map have resumed dine-in service. However, this should not be taken as endorsement for dining in, as there are still safety concerns: for updated information on coronavirus cases, please visit A Safe Nashville. Studies indicate that there is a lower exposure risk when outdoors, but the level of risk involved with patio dining is contingent on restaurants following strict social distancing and other safety guidelines.Read More
