During the Christmas season each year, Cyndy and I have lunch at The Restaurant at the Ritz-Carlton. (Yes, the main restaurant is manifestly called The Restaurant.) It’s fun to see others having similar outings, as was a table of women next to us decked out in Santa hats.
If you want to do something special for a friend during the holidays either the Ritz Restaurant or The Grill provide a relaxed location. Valet parking and the sunny spaciousness of the dining room make for a feeling of pampered luxury. Be sure to stroll about the lobby and see the Christmas decorations. Or sit a spell with a drink beside one of the lobby fireplaces.
Taking a “Ritz break” will help maintain your serenity during the hustle and bustle of the season.
