dinner out on christmas day?

  • 4
  • Share

My parents are coming in to town for the holidays and want to eat out on christmas. I know that I'll probably have to stick to a hotel restaurant since not much is open (they don't want to do Chinese, so that's out), but I'm really not familiar with hotel restaurants. Does anybody have any recommendations- we don't mind splurging a little but don't want to do something with Canlis prices- maybe $50-$60 range per person? Bonus points for something not too stuffy (but if stuffy = delicious, we'll do stuffy). If it's not a "hotel restaurant" but is open christmas that is fine too.

Thanks in advance!

  1. My favorite "hotel" restaurant in Seattle is Lola at Hotel Andra. I'm not sure they're open for Christmas, but I think their service is great (my parents are always happy at Tom Douglas restaurants...they like the professional level of service that is common) and I have enjoyed many a good meal.

    1. The Hotel Sorrento usually has holiday dining, and I love the atmosphere. Their Thanksgiving dinner was 75.00, so I assume the Christmas meal will be comparable.

        thanks you guys!
        has anybody ever done a holiday at boka kitchen? would that be a little too trendy for parents- they are reasonably open minded for food but always complain about places being too loud.

      2. I looked at a lot of Seattle-area restaurant websites and came up with this list of possibilities for a Christmas Day feast:
