What is open (and recommended) on Christmas Eve?

  • 1

I'm in the Bay Area on Christmas eve before flying back to LA. Will be staying at the Hyatt near the Embarcadero.

It's a Sunday and it's Christmas Eve, many places are closed, any recommends on good and open? High end or low end, doesn't matter, just good food.

    1. Here's the link to opentable to check what is available that night. It doesn't have the low-end restaurants though. But as rtmonty mentioned, probably most of the restauants in Chinatown will be open like R&G.


      Some of the restaurants mentioned like Aqua, Luella and Frascoti don't show up as available on opentable, though you could always give those places a call just to double check. Often there is availability beyond what opentable lists.

      Rue Saite Jacque and Perbacco seem to be available. Washington Square Bar and Grill might be a nice cozy place for Christmas. It is in North Beach.
