Ah Christmas, a time of never ending eating and gift giving.

Instead of giving your family mediocre presents and choking down your mom’s less than satisfying feast of the seven fishes this year, give your family the gift of a delicious Christmas Eve dinner at Bowery Meat Company.

Bowery Meat Company, by John McDonald, the same guy who brought you Lure Fishbar, along with partner/chef Josh Capon, is here to bring you delicious steaks and other creative American plates with a bit of a twist to them. After all, what better way to spend the holidays than with a fantastic dinner cooked by a renowned chef?

It’s a little on the expensive side, but just trust us, it’s the best way you’ll spend your money all year. You’ll get to start out with bites like Roasted Cauliflower Steak, Zucchini Carpaccio and Foie Gras and Chicken Liver Parfait. Then you’ll get to enjoy tasty pastas like Short Rib Ravioli with bacon, rosemary butter and aged balsamic or the Duck Lasagna for two.

If you’re looking for something a little more substantial, obviously go for an infamous meat option like the Pork Ribeye or the Bone-In Filet Mignon. If you’re really looking to spoil yourself this year, split the Cote de Boeuf for Two with your favorite relative, or get the Wagyu Prime Rib a la Plancha with a mushroom bordelaise for yourself. Christmas doesn’t get much more decadent than that.

So head to Bowery Meat Company for a fanciful Christmas Eve dinner this year and you’ll be sure to walk out fatter and jollier than Santa.
