DC chowhound going home for Christmas. Instead of cooking we have decided to go out again this year - last year was Market and it was great. Would love something luxurious and fun - price not really an object. Doesnt seem like much is open and I am so out of the Boston dining scene. Any ideas?? thanks so much

    I think we may end up at Petit Robert - wanted to try and break out of the hotel mold since they all seem to be doing buffet brunches that day! thanks everyone

      We've had lunch there (Kenmore PRB) Easter 2010 and Thanksgiving 2009 and it was very nice. They usually have a good holiday oriented special on the menu. The roast lamb I had Easter was excellent.

      Had a lovely lunch today at the Bristol Lounge. I would expect it to be a good Christmas day option.

        Though we don't go out to eat on Christmas day, we usually go out Christmas eve, and hotel restaurants are usually the only ones that are reliably open on these holidays. Asana or The Bristol Lounge would be excellent choices, but check out the other hotel places as well.

        Not a lot of places are open Christmas Day, but OpenTable has a list of those that are.

        Asana might be nice.

          We are going out Christmas Eve and Christmas night (parents coming to town and they insist) and used Open Table. I just checked it for lunch on Christmas Day, not knowing how many are in your party, and there are quite a few nice choices. Almost all are associated with hotels. Good luck! Merry Christmas, too.
