25 Boston Restaurants Decked Out for the Holidays

’Tis the season to be jolly with twinkling lights, decorated trees, and festive drinks.

Before the family comes into town for Christmas, take a moment to yourself to have a meal and some drinks in someone else’s well-decorated dining room. From gorgeous garlands decking Deuxave, to a seasonal version of the sassy Fridge at Trina’s Starlite Lounge, these Boston-area bars and restaurants are merry and bright.
