Any great places open on Christmas day?

Me and a chow-loving friend are meeting up at Draught House on Christmas Day, but will need a good dinner beforehand.

Leaning more toward Vietnamese, Chinese, Indian. Anyone know of a good place that will be open Christmas Day (at least for dinner)? I don't mind calling to check, but I wanted to narrow my search first.

    I've not eaten at Kobe Steakhouse, so I can't attest to whether they're "great" or not, but I noticed a sign up yesterday stating they would be open Christmas Day and New Year's Day.

        Shanghai is doing dimsum cart service from 11-12:30 on Christmas Day. It's our favorite dim sum in Austin!

          I just did a drive-by... Din Ho and Pho Van are both open today. Sunflower is not.

                Fortune will be doing Dim Sum and some special dishes. If I was in town, that's where I'd be headed.
