COLUMBUS, Miss. (WCBI) – Many people enjoy a home-cooked meal for the Christmas holiday. Most restaurants close for the day. If cooking on Christmas doesn’t fit into your holiday plans, J. Broussard’s Restaurant in Columbus is open to serve you. Patrons can choose a four-course meal from a planned holiday menu. Annette Perry says this is just what she needs.
“We’ve already had Christmas with our family and we did all the cooking and I thought, a treat. Here we come and we’re gonna support the home town restaurants that are open. We thought “this is gonna be great,” says Perry.
Beth Rogers is the Chef at J Broussard’s and says though she works on Christmas, she enjoys making the day special for others.
“A lot of people have a lot of different things going on on Christmas. Some people have big families that they’re going to go see and some people don’t. A lot of the groups that come here are small groups, people with kids live so far away that they can’t go see them. It provides a really great thing that they can look forward to, even if they don’t have family to look forward to,”. says Rogers.
J Broussard’s opens for lunch from 11am to 2 pm on Christmas Day. It will also be open for dinner on New Year’s Eve.
