Nice restaurant in / near San Diego, open on Christmas day

We are two families vacationing. My wife's 50th birthday is Christmas day. We're looking for a nice restaurant with good food and ambience that is open on Christmas day. It's a tall order, but I'd really appreciate some suggestions.

    Arterra in Del MAr has been a solid choice in the past. Food is usually very good, nice atmosphere.

      I think A.R. Valentien is open on holidays.

        opentable.com usually has lists of restaurants that are open on holidays. Perhaps you could use their list to x-reference choices on CH.

          Don't go to Arterra. AR Valentien is a good one. I would expect that El Bizcocho would be open, and I had a very good experience over there recently.
