Rolf’s at Christmas: About as festive as it gets

by Hannah Gandevia

Are you partial to a little sparkle during the holiday season? Maybe you’re one of those people with a secret soft spot for Christmas deccos. Then boy, oh boy, do I have the place for you.

Every year, the folks at Rolf’s Bar and Restaurant (22nd St & 3rd Ave) adorns their space with a jaw-dropping array of baubles, fairy-lights and festive cheer. It’s basically like dining inside a Christmas tree.

They serve hearty german plates and giant schooners of beer. And while the food is nothing to write home about, and their menu is a little overpriced, be sure to pop on your best/worst Christmas sweater and head over to check out the spectacle.

In fact, it reminds me a little of Panna, that crazy Indian restaurant in the east village chock-a-block with multi-colored lights.

Progressive dinner anyone?
