It's that time of year again....

hello hounds,
well it's that time of year again.... we are searching for a great/festive place to eat for Christmas Eve?

  1. Cuisine preferences? Neighborhood? Per person budget for food?

    1. A group of eight of us go out for dinner every Christmas Eve. It's hard to get great food because of the tourist crowds, secondary service staff, and general chaos of the night. We opt for festive. Mexican has worked well...Zarela in the early years, later Rosa Mexicano before they became a chain. We enjoyed Molyvos but for the past 5 or 6 years, we have gone to Trattoria del Arte for giant veal chops to share, along with their lovely antipasti and flat bread is definitely festive on Christmas Eve.
