Pass the figgy pudding and fruit cake—it’s nearly Christmas. Instead of slaving over the stovetop all day, take a more relaxed approach by ordering a yuletide celebration dinner from one of our favorite eateries.

Urban Farmer

Take home a bit of Logan Square’s modern American steakhouse this holiday season with their Christmas Eve and Christmas Day dinners to-go. Choose between a roasted 1855 beef ribeye and Pennsylvania ham before diving into a rainbow of side choices. Think Brussels sprouts, yukon potato puree, roasted winter vegetables and more. Urbanfarmersteakhouse.com

Cafe Aldo Lamberti

Celebrate over heaping plates of jumbo shrimp and scallops fra diavolo, pan seared Chilean sea bass and gnocchi sorrento with this a la carte menu. Bonus: they are taking orders until 2pm Christmas Eve. caffelamberti.com

Aqimero

Whether you’re looking to feed a family of four or eight, Richard Sandoval’s Aqimero dinner packages to-go have you covered with mouthwatering plates like angus rib roast in bordelaise, citrus glaze heritage ham, whipped yukon gold potatoes and more. aqimero.com

Amada

Leave your Christmas Eve dinner to the Garces team this year, and order from Amada. Our recommendation? The prime rib with bordelaise and horseradish crème fraiche. Each entree is served with herb roasted fingerling potatoes, Brussels sprouts, salad verde, bacon-wrapped dates, whipped bone marrow, Parker House rolls, holiday cookies and spiced hot chocolate. garcestradingcompany.com/

a.kitchen

Chef Eli Collins is filling the season with the 12 Days of Christmas. Available for pick-up and delivery, the meals serve two-to-four people, and include a seasonal soup or salad, main dish and dessert. To celebrate the full 12 days, the main dish will change every day leaving up to Christmas, ending on Christmas Eve with a Feast of Seven Fishes-inspired winter bouillabaisse. Akitchenandbar.com

Dim Sum House by Jane G

For the most intimate of holiday dinners, Dim Sum House is serving an Asian-inspired holiday menu. For $80, you can expect a half Peking duck and ginger scallion lobster, two options from their dim sum menu and one rice or noodle dish. Crystal shrimp dumplings, chili oil wontons and roast pork bao are noteworthy favorites. Dimsum.house

Stove and Co.

A Christmas Eve dinner filled with herb crusted prime rib, potato and leek pie, sticky toffee pudding and more can be ordered and picked up at all four restaurants: The Bercy, Stove and Tap Malvern, Stove and Tap Lansdale and Al Pastor. Stoveandtap.com

Osteria

Opt for the traditional route with Osteria’s Christmas Eve Feast of Seven Fishes Dinner. Focaccia bread, octopus insalata, baked clams amatriciana and whole branzino are only four of the yummy meals on the menu. And if you didn’t get enough—enjoy their Christmas dinner the next day as well. Think vegetable antipasto, polenta budino and whole roasted chicken. Osteriaphilly.com

Oyster House

Created by executive chef Joseph Campoli, this $90 meal serves two people….generously. Satisfy taste buds with the smoked fish dip and housemade crackers before moving onto the caesar salad with cured white anchovies. And for dinner? A classic: linguine with crab gravy. Oysterhousephilly.com

Southgate

Korean fried chicken, bao buns and bulgogi burger sliders are never a bad idea—especially on a cold winter day. Or, for an even more filling option, order from the family meal: there are four- and six-entree versions. southgatephilly.com

Rastelli’s

This holiday season is more virtual than year’s past, but why not make it exciting? Order from Rastelli’s online menu—oven-roasted turkey breast, prime rib roast and beef wellington are at the top of the holiday menu—and have a virtual Christmas dinner cooking party with friends and family. Geared towards simple, virtual celebrations, the meals can be ordered through their website, and are safely delivered to your home with instructions and preparation tips. Rastellis.com

DiBruno Brothers

It doesn’t get much more Philly than DiBruno Brothers, and with their Winter Holiday package, you can be sure to have all of your eatery favorites in your fridge. Prices depend on your chosen entree (we are eying up the coq au vin), each meal comes with dinner rolls, butter and a choice of one hors d’oeuvre, appetizer, two sides and a dessert. Dibrunocatering.com

Positano Coast

Aldo Lamberti’s Feast of Seven Dishes includes a prix fixe menu of chilled crab and tuna, lobster croquette, paccheri, grilled branzino fillet and a plethora of Italian Christmas desserts. Positanocoast.net

Constellation Catering Group

Start with the caramelized pear and blue cheese salad dressed in a shallot dijon vinaigrette before indulging in one of the three entree options—think cider glazed pork loin, savory spiced chicken roulade and harvest spiced salmon. And as if the meal wasn’t delicious enough, Constellation Catering group is also sending over cheat-worthy sides like potato gratin, candied wild rice pilaf and haricots verts and wild mushrooms. Add on a sugar cookie and gingerbread making kit for hands-on fun, or splurge on a cocktail kit. Constellationculinary.com

Talula’s Daily

Pick from a menu of holiday brunch, snack, entrees and desserts—or just order them all. From mini crab cake bites to tender braised brisket, Kennett Square mushroom risotto and vegetable frittatas, this Aimee Olexy hotspot will keep you more than satisfied. But don’t forget about dessert: pear & cranberry bundt cake and homemade cookie gift boxes are on the agenda. Talulasdaily.com
