Alamo Heights-area eatery The Hayden will offer a Jewish-Chinese Christmas menu next week in homage to a tradition owner Adam Lampinstein shares with other members of the U.S. Jewish community.
Many Jewish families go out for Chinese food and a movie on Christmas Eve since they celebrate the separate winter religious holiday of Hanukkah.
“While all our friends are opening presents under the tree, having ham and sipping eggnog, we honestly have nothing else to do and thus this tradition was likely born,” Lampinstein said in a release. “We are social people and want to get out and do something!”
