Cambridge/Arlington for Christmas

Bri Dec 22, 2006 01:36 AM

My partner and I will be staying at the Cambridge House B&B for Christmas Eve and would love to have some recs for Christmas Day breakfast or lunch, if anything is open.

Thanks in advance!

    I can't imagine much will be open, but here are a few suggestions to check out:

    - For Chinese, Qingdao Garden is not far from you on Mass Ave. There are many posts about it on this board - be sure to try the dumplings.

    - Henrietta's Kitchen is attached to the Charles Hotel in Harvard Square, and serves tasty and large meals. Very American, good vegetables. They might be doing a brunch if you are lucky - you could check bostonchefs.com.

    Honestly, most of the usual breakfast/brunch places will probably be closed. I do think that Cambridge House B&B will give you scones, etc. Good luck!

      Looks like there are at least a handful of restaurants open on Christmas Day:

      If it were me, I'd head over to Eastern Standard in Kenmore for brunch:

        Thanks for the info, it is much appreciated! I think it might just be Eastern Standard...sounds great.

        Regards,

            You might also want to head over to Brookline. I'll bet most of the restaurants on Harvard Street will be open.
