If you're planning a special holiday meal and want to support local restaurants—well, you might as well achieve both those aims at once, right? Here is a collection of restaurants in the city doing special takeout menus for Christmas or Hanukkah. We will update these as we receive more information, though this list is by no means comprehensive. You can always call a beloved spot to see if they have anything on tap, or if they can prep a family-size portion of your favorite side dish...or nachos. We're not judging.
