Houston on Christmas Eve near Galleria.
My family is will be in Houston for Christmas. Looking for an adult dinner for 5. We are staying near 59 and Shepherd. Any ideas on places open and serving dinner on Christmas eve.
Thanks for your help. We want something besides an ihop or hotel restaurant.
If I get everything done in time I'm thinking about going out on Christmas Eve too. I think it would be fun and festive. Google took me to www.christmas-restaurants.com, but I don't think any of the restaurants are in the 59/Shephard area, mostly Galleria, but that's not too far from 59.
It may be a little early for the open for Christmas lists. b4ueat has their Thanksgiving list up now but will put up Christmas listings after next Thursday probably. Your hotel is on the edge of Montrose, not River Oaks, and as close to the Med Center and the VIllage as to RIver Oaks, all closer than the Galleria. So you could search b4 for listings in all those areas but you're going to be overwhelmed with choices and not much information about who's going to be open. Some restaurants on b4 have profile pages and links to websites that would probably have holiday hours, though.
The only places I can think of that are open are Himalaya (it was last year, anyway) - not your traditional Christmas fare but excellent. Also Katz Deli in Montrose - not all that good but better than Ihop.
You could also determine the zip code of your hotel and enter that on b4 but unless you're in a big hurry just wait another week.
If I decide not to cook, we'll be eating at Back Street Cafe. One of my favorite restaurants in town! Great Lobster Sandwich, Corn Flan, Etc... Make sure to make reservations! Valet Parking only I think! Casual Dress...We wore jeans this last Sat.
