Christmas dinner

My gf and I want to find somewhere to have dinner tonight, doesn't have to be Christmas dinner, almost anything will do. We're around College/Spadina so if it's within a reasonable walking distance, even better. I know that's a very wide open request but I'm at a loss for ideas. If nothing else comes up, I was thinking of giving Swatow a go (assuming it's open) because I've heard so many good things about it here.
Merry Christmas to all who celebrate!

  1. I called 7 West Cafe and they are open today, that's where I think I may be headed.

    1. Swatow has its time — 2 am, when yer tanked — I'd go to Xam Yu at Spadina (east side) & Baldwin, a bit more upscale and v. good seafood mains. But EVERYTHING in CTown is open today. And really crowded, too.

          Too late for your dinner tonight (unless you're eating really late...), but if you didn't end up going to E-Pan, I'd recommend it for a future dinner. I've had a few meals there, and I've never been disappointed.

      1. 7 West on Charles St is definitely open...when are they not open? Lai Wah Heen at the Metropolitan hotel is open, so is Chez Victor, and Dhaba on Queen/John...and I guess about every Chinese restaurant on the Spadina strip.
