Soul Vegetarian Restaurants are OPEN throughout the holiday season
BY ALICIA ELER
Picture this: you're done with the whole gift thing, and the entire family is itching to get out of the house. If cooking or warming questionable leftovers just doesn't sound appealing, we have good news for you: There are more than a handful of restaurants open on any holiday. And no matter what your religious views on the holiday, make sure to tip your server with something more than good cheer.

Go meatless at Soul Vegetarian East, 205 E. 75th, (773) 224-0104.
Spread cheer to your vegan and soul food-lovin' friends at this South Side stalwart. If you live up north, it's worth the trek. And because it's run by African Hebrew Israelites of Jerusalem, they're open Christmas Day.
Break away from your meaty traditions with appetizers like battered cauliflower or hearty brown lentil soup. Try the wheat gluten Garvey Burger, named after Marcus Garvey, the founder of the Universal Negro Improvement Association and African Communities League (UNIA-ACL). If it's available, don't miss the vegan sweet potato pie for dessert.
