Not on the 'foodie' high street
How about those who want to dine out in style? Extravagant London restaurants will be serving up set menus for Christmas, a day when most places are closed.
Halibut with caviar and lobster consommé at Marcus Wareing's restaurant, the Ritz Hotel's chestnut gnocchi with cauliflower truffle and the traditional desserts of Yule log and Christmas pudding are set to be featured on some of the high-class menus; costing up to £400 per head.
The Ritz Hotel on London's Piccadilly is offering Christmas lunch at £400 per person. For that guests get a six course meal and an array of entertainment including a caricature artists and live entertainment. The meal includes expensive cuts of venison wellington, lemon sorbet and goose liver, whilst not forgetting the mince pies.
Three Michelin-star Alain Ducasse at the Dorchester has a Christmas Day Lunch at £295 per head. Featured on the six-course feast is black truffle, caviar, cockles and Norwegian lobster, none of which would be found typically at home.

Two Michelin star restaurant Marcus, at Knightbridge's The Berkeley hotel offers six courses with complementary wines at £375. Courses include the must-have cheese course and a range of meat from goose to Galloway beef and halibut.

Turkey is losing its crown as the traditional Christmas main course, as almost half of the meals ordered at Mitchells & Butlers' Harvester chains won't include Turkey.
In fact, 16 percent of Brits will choose not to chomp down on the time-honored turkey, but instead 50 percent will focus more on confectionary and more ordinary food, according to a recent poll by the Salvation Army, a charitable organization.
