Lexington and Knoxville on Christmas, need food

Hi all,

We will be travelling from Michigan to Knoxville on Christmas day. We will be in Lexington about lunchtime and Knoxville about dinner time on, probably, the worst day of the year to find food.

Would anyone be willing to save us with recommendations for either city? We tend to stay away from beef and pork so anything of the fowl (but not foul!) variety would be much appreciated! Price no object if the food is worth it (you only live once and Christmas only comes once a year)

Thank you!

Dawn and Ben
