Open Xmas for dinner...near BAY & BLOOR

Anyone know if any of the restos in the area will be open? Fresh? Pho (?)? Not looking for something fancy. Just convenient and open.

  1. Chinatown — Dundas & Spadina, everything's open. Vietnamese & Chinese.

      Thanks, Dimbulb, but i'm actually looking for something in walking distance to Yonge & Bay. Any other suggestions?

    2. Yonge and Bay do not intersect. If you're south of Bloor along either of those streets, I would consider that walking distance to Chinatown. There are some Asian places along Baldwin between Beverly and McCaul that are open. My Jewish friends swear by a Chinese Seafood Place (DOWN the stairs as opposed to the resto UP the stairs) they traditionally frequent every Christmas Day. Or establishments on Dundas just west of Beverly. Perhaps Asian Legend?

        Thanks for pointing out my error! I've updated the title. I meant Bay & Bloor.

      2. Vaticano on Belair is open on Christmas Day.
        Great Italian food.

        1. I think 7 West may be open on the 25th, call to check.

              Dynasty at Bloor and Bay is open for sure. Maybe we'll see you there? Great chinese food.
