The Christmas spirit is in full swing at The Commoner and Rooftop Biergarten at Hotel Monaco. There’s no need to try and stay awake on Christmas Eve to catch Santa’s sleigh in action.
Witness the reindeer magic of the holiday season in person as ‘Reindeer on the Roof’ returns to the Biergarten at Hotel Monaco on Saturday, December 17 and Sunday, December 18, 2022. Those brunching at The Commoner can meet and greet with live Christmas caribou for $10 or $12 if you are not brunching it up. There will be complimentary hot chocolate and hot cider for all guests and adults 21 and older. Plus, keep an eye out for some specialty seasonal beverages from the bar available for sale.
Those looking to venture out on Christmas Day can enjoy the ease and relaxation of a cheerful dinner at The Commoner. Chef Dave Racicot’s legendary Christmas Day dinner can be ordered as a 3-course prix fixe or an entree, a la carte. The prix fixe option begins with an artisanal greens salad topped with dried fruits and candied nuts and then drizzled with meyer lemon vinaigrette. The main course includes prime rib roast and Berkshire ham glazed with clove syrup, served with robuchon potatoes, brussels sprouts, caramelized cauliflower gratin, and truffled mac and cheese. Yum! Finish off with a delectable citrus curd tart. The prix fixe dinner only costs $55 and $45 for the a la carte entree. Reservations are strongly recommended.This content was provided by a local, independent contributor to Made in PGH, a lifestyle blog.
