Christmas Eve in the Triangle, NC

My husband and I have been making it a tradition to eat out on Christmas Eve when it's just the two of us. Last year we went to Ruth's Chris and wanted to go to The Angus Barn this year but, somewhat understandably, they are closed on Christmas Eve. I don't really get excited about Ruth's Chris (steaks are okay, but the sides aren't that great) and I'd like to go somewhere locally based, if possible. Does anyone have any good recs for restaurants that serve good a good steak in the Triangle?

  1. That's going to be tough - just about any local non-chain place will be closed that day. I just checked Bin 54, just in case, and nope, not open that day either.

    1. Check the good hotels - in CH, certainly check Il Palio and The Carolina Inn, and in Durham, The Washington Duke.
