We will be in Houston for Christmas this year and would like some ideas about the best Christmas lunch/dinner in the city. Thanks!

    There have been several threads about Christmas dining in Houston here on CH over the past month or so. Scroll down or use the search feature.

    Here's a couple of listings:

    http://www.b4-u-eat.com/christmas/xmd...

    http://www.chron.com/disp/story.mpl/d...

    The first is no where near complete; there are probably other listings on the Chron website, too; they usually have a big list in the paper somewhere.

    On the b4-u-eat list I'm only familiar with Himalaya (Pakistani) and Dimassi's (Middle-Eastern). I love 'em both.

    I woke up not feeling like spending the morning in the kitchen so I think we're going to go to Cleburne Cafeteria:

    http://www.cleburnecafeteria.com/

    It'll be a traditional dinner with trimmings, and probably absolutely packed. I know they're open today but not sure if it'll be continuous service or if they'll take the usual break between the lunch and dinner servings.

    P.S. - just saw the NYT review of Cleburne on the website -- never knew Cleburne had made the Times.
