Where'd you eat out on Christmas Eve/Day?

So, for those of us without home cooked meals in the city on Christmas, where'd you go?

Had a lovely Christmas dinner at La Sirene tonight. It was jam-packed, very cozy, perfect for Christmas. :)

  1. We spent the eve at Crispo and it couldn't have been better. Every seat was full, but the service never faltered. We had a great table in the back patio near the fireplace and below two giant wreaths. Just perfect! And then the food...

    Crispo, Christmas Eve, 2010 just earned a spot on my "Top 5 Meals Out" list.

    1. We had a nice and cozy Christmas Eve dinner at Aldea.
      My Slow Poached Egg appetizer was excellent. I also enjoyed my entree of Arroz de Pato. Great all-around service.

      1. Grand Sichuan, a yearly Jewish Xmas tradition. It was crowded and they were seasoning the food with a lighter hand, but it was still delicious. If new year's eve is "amateur drinking night", is Christmas "amateur Sichuan night"? Maybe that's what caused them to tone down the spice?

            Saint Marks. I miss Sonny, the old headwaiter. But it's our neighborhood favorite and it was a short, brisk walk.

        1. Christmas Eve, Shun Lee Cafe - in the neighborhood, and right next door to the theatre showing "Black Swan", next stop

          1. Christmas dinner at Marseille. We have been going there for several years on Christmas. The food was great as always, and the prix-rix fixe is more than reasonable, a bargain really, and we love the ambience.
