St. Louis: Birthday dinner on Dec. 25.
My husband's birthday is Tuesday, and we are looking for a non-"Christmas dinner" restaurant to go with our teens and some friends.
Do any St. Louis hounds have suggestions for Chinese, Vietnamese, Indian, or other restaurants where we can eat vegetarian or pescatarian (not shellfish) at a moderate price?
Harrah's is open on Christmas Day, and they have just expanded their buffet so that is the "size of a football field". This is part of Harrah's effort to keep people from going to the new casino, Lumiere Place. I am a vegetarian who ate at Harrah's when the buffet was much smaller, and I found a lot to enjoy on the buffet..
Two places that immediately come to mind are India Palace, at the top of the Airport Plaza Inn, and Blueberry Hill. BH I know for sure is open, and I am about 98% positive that India Palace is too.
BH isn't ethnic, but it is fun, and open, and good for teens.
India Palace is always very accommodating for special events, and the food is just great -- my fave Indian in the area. Last year we went there for New Years dinner with 15 people and the staff could not have been more attentive and helpful.
