Suggestions for Restaurants that are open Christmas Eve/Day

I know this question gets asked every year but I can't seem to find too much info on it. I have friends that will be visiting Vancouver during the Christmas holidays. They will be staying in the Yaletown area and so would prefer suggestions in downtown Vancouver. However, they do have a vehicle and could travel outside downtown if need be. My friend is pescatarian but her SO does eat meat. They are not looking for a traditional Christmas dinner. And it will be just the two of them for these meals.

Thanks in advance.

    1. This is 2-yr old listing, but I'd imagine those who open Christmas eve/day and New Year's eve/day back then still do now:

      Yew in The Four Seasons definitely is open through the holiday season:

      Regardless of traditional dinner or just a la carte.

      1. My experience (many years ago) is that the Chinese places are almost inevitably open (I don't think they ever close). Lol.

          Except during Chinese New Year period, many Chinese restos close so their staff can take time off and celebrate (some go back to mainland China).

          I recall seeing a T&T Supermarket ad that they prep whole Christmas turkey (with fixins). Can't say I'm "appealed" by that but I'm quite curious as to how it tastes.
