    Check opentable. Email the ones you are interested in and see what their Christmas Eve menu will be and pick the one you like best. Good luck!

      I'd probably opt for Bayona or Domenica, out of the places you listed.

        From opening to about 4:00, Galatoire's is an enormously local crowd...the same people are in the line by 7:30 AM every year. But in the afternoon it thins out a bit..not much, but some. Xmas Eve is Monday this year when, normally, they are closed, but we';ve been there on Monday Xmas Eves past and I have not heard that they will be closed. It is too poopular (and profitable) to imagine missing out.

          Bayona is a great place, one of my personal top five w/ August, Commanders Palace, MiLa, & Kieth Youngs Steakhouse. I have no idea if any of them are going to be open. I know Tom Fitzmorris posts a list every year of places that are open on Christmas eve, you should check out his website nomenu.com
