ST. PETERSBURG, FL — The coronavirus crisis is prompting many Americans to skip large, family-filled holiday celebrations this year. As some choose to alter their Christmas traditions, others might be opting to let someone else take care of the festivities entirely.

Among these are cooking, and if that’s the route you’re going this Christmas, we certainly wouldn’t blame you. Luckily, there are several local and chain restaurants in St. Petersburg planning to be open on Christmas Day.

In case you need a recommendation of where to eat out on Christmas, Patch compiled a roundup of local and national restaurants slated to be open that day.
