Lunch on Christmas Eve

Looking for a decent downtown lunch spot for Christmas Eve. Our usual suspects, JK Wine Bar and Pangaea are closed. Should be reasonably upscale but not too brutal.

Any good ideas?

  1. Have you checked if JK Gardiner is open then? My guess is that it would be with the holiday museum crowd in the area.

    1. Asian restaurants are usually open. I would think Lee Wah Heen would be open. Especially because it's in a hotel. All of Kensington/Chinatown. I'm actually surprised that a place like JK Wine Bar would be closed for lunch on Christmas Eve. I would have thought they'd be open until at least 2 or 3.

      1. Thuet is open for lunch Christmas Eve, click on place link for website and menu.

        609 King St W, Toronto, ON M5V1M5, CA

        1. Thanks for your suggestions. JK at the Gardiner is open and we are reserved there. Odd that the lady on the phone did not mention it.

          Thuet would also be a good option. Next year...
