Looking for restaurants open on Christmas Day that aren't Chinese or Middle Eastern around Mercer or Northern Burlington County areas. Any ideas?

  1. Not sure what restaurants are there, but Indian restaurants seem a good bet.

    1. Kosher Deli?

        Not this year!

      2. Not exactly your requested locale, but got an email today advertising that the Shrewsbury Le Peep is open 8am to 2pm Christmas day.

          Starbucks, lol. But seriously, regular restaurants are all closed, and they should be, their employees should have that day off.

          So the choices would be ethnic non-Christian places, Asian, Indian, Middle Eastern (not Greek)and probably "kosher-style" delis. (It's a Saturday this year).

            I fear you are right, however, I don't care for Chinese, Indian, Middle Eastern. Kosher works, but there isn't really an offering local to me. Oh well, looks like I'll be staying home and cooking!

              Diners might be open.

        2. Perkins might be open - the one in East Windsor was last Christmas .

          1. Checkout The Farnsworth House in Bordentown. They are open on Thanksgiving, and I am pretty sure that they do Christmas as well. I'll follow up with them one night this week if I stop in for drinks and find out for you! -mJ
