Looking for restaurants open Christmas Eve

sciaccagirl Dec 23, 2011 07:07 AM

Anyone know of smaller restaurants open on Christmas Eve in Boston/Cambridge area or even along Rte 9/109 heading out to 495? Please no Chinese or Japanese (husband's caveat). 6pm to 9pm, although that may be later than places will be open. Thanks...

    Saw on another thread that Pizzeria Posto in Davis Square is doing the feast of the Seven Fishes Christmas eve- menu looks great! Wish I were going...

      We have spent a few Christmas Eves at Eastern Standard. Please check and confirm, but being attached to a hotel, they stay open (although they close early at 11 or midnight instead of 2am).

        Last year we went to the Beacon Tavern and it was pretty busy but not like you needed to make a reservation. Not a lot of places open on Christmas eve in the neighborhood.

        Beacon Street Tavern
        1032 Beacon Street, Brookline, MA 02446

          Most hotel restaurants are, but we always go out to dinner on Christmas eve, and found quite a few more open than usual, with it being a Saturday. Check out OpenTable for a complete list.

            Aquitaine Bis in Chestnut Hill is open. Westbound side of Route 9.

              Thank you all for your help. I'll check them out online. OpenTable's a great idea as well.
              many thanks!!!

                Depending how far out to 495 the Red Rock Grill in Upton is open.

                  La Morra does a great Christmas Eve dinner.

                    We had a great meal at Lumiere. They are one of the great treasures of the Boston restaurant scene.
