Christmas in Salem?

Hi all,
I miss living in Boston/Cambridge. 3 years away in DC is just not the same. My wife and I and our 3 month old son are traveling to Salem to spend X-mas with my mother. In lieu of cooking Christmas Brunch for our small family I thought it would be easier just to go out for brunch/lunch since we'll be seeing extended family later on at night. Have any places advertised Christmas brunch? Back in the day we did the Hawthorne Hotel a few times but I was wondering if there was someplace better. Thanks!

    I live in Salem.
    The Hawthorne Hotel might be the only show in town open on Christmas Day...or, one of the Asian restaurants.
    Salem Patch...www.salempatch.com is pretty good about keeping the 'events' & 'things to do' lists current. You might try there.

      mike, in case you are to do another dinner out, there's a great new salem spot- 62 Wharf. Do a CH search for recent reviews. Also a new Mex place that does lunch and dinner-- Howlin Wolf , w/ a few v good dishes- also recently reviewed on CH.
