Restaurants open Christmas Eve 2011?

How about restaurants open Christmas Eve in Durham/Chapel Hill/ Hillsborough?

  1. Since its a Saturday, i think almost every place will be open, although they may close early. I'd just call ahead to wherever you're thinking of going.

      This time of year it is a good idea to call around any night. A few times I've planned to go someplace only to get there and find it closed for a private party. Happened at ACME and at Tylers (thank goodness not on the same night). So kind of smart to check around.

    2. Here's what I get when I go to Opentable and plug in a request for a 7 pm reservation on 12/24 for two people:

      some of the places are going fast.

        What a great way to generate a lot of info! Thanks. I never would have thought of polling the universe of Triangle dining spots on Open Table.

          Well, it's certainly not perfect since not everyone uses Open Table, but it's easier than calling around!

            It's a great trick for finding out if a place is open on Sundays or Mondays too. Sometimes those bits of info are weirdly hard to find on websites.
