For most, the holiday season is a time to gather with loved ones, reminisce about past reunions and shared experiences, and eat unsustainable quantities of food. If you don’t want to work yourself sick preparing food for loved ones this holiday season or you don’t celebrate that big tree-centered holiday on December 25, let the staff of a nearby restaurant do the work for you. Here is a list of Davie-area restaurants expected to be open on December 25, December 31, and January 1.
Have yourself a pho-abulous Christmas or warming New Year with some flavorful Vietnamese food from Brandon Asian Cuisine. A seven-minute drive from AMLI Toscana Place, this Foodtown Plaza joint serves Vietnamese soups, noodle dishes, and hot pot. Portions are on the large side, so you can eat like you would a home-cooked holiday meal.
If you’d rather enjoy a traditional Italian holiday meal, make the short drive or Tri Rail ride to Cinque Terre. Located on Nova Drive at University, Cinque Terre Italian Restaurant serves excellent seafood, homemade pasta, and mouthwatering desserts. Inquire about the fish of the day and other specials.
Does a classic diner experience sound like a nice alternative to holiday dinner duties? Davie’s Flashback Diner is a two-minute drive or pleasant 20-minute walk from AMLI Toscana Place. Drop in for classic diner food, Greek specialties like spanakopita, or the chef’s special, which changes daily. Dine here, and you won’t have to miss out on that holiday dessert. Choose from apple, key lime, lemon meringue, or chocolate mousse pie. Flashback also serves rich cakes and other desserts. The diner is open 24 hours.
Mission BBQ is one of those rare chain restaurants that doesn’t compromise quality. Eat brisket, pulled pork, or barbecue ribs à la carte or sandwiched between buns if you prefer. The ribs are popular. Sides of mac ‘n’ cheese and potatoes are a hit. A kid’s menu makes Mission BBQ, less than two miles east of AMLI Toscana Place, a family-friendly holiday dining destination.
Widely considered the best Peruvian restaurant in Broward County, Oh Ceviche! has the ambience, staff, and cuisine to make your holiday meal festive. Even if you don’t plan to eat out on Christmas or New Year’s, Oh Ceviche! should be on your radar. In addition to ceviche, the restaurant serves stuffed potatoes, Chinese-Peruvian stir-fry, and other flavorful delicacies. Patrons love the drinks here, infused with passion fruit and other naturally sweet ingredients. Oh Ceviche! is a 10-minute drive from AMLI Toscana Place’s Davie apartments. They also offer delivery.
Vienna Cafe’s continental menu includes European classics like schnitzel, filet mignon, and Danish meatballs. Visit for an elegant holiday dinner of tastefully prepared food and fine wine. It’s a 10-minute ride from AMLI Toscana Place, so hailing a cab or rideshare is an option if you decide to go for that second glass.
