Christmas Day, Central NJ
For a variety of reasons, eating out on Christmas might be in the cards for my husband and I. Suggestions for New Brunswick/Somerville? We're pretty eclectic and price (within reason) isn't an issue.
Are you looking for fancy or what? For example, I'm sure the kosher restaurants in Highland Park will be open, and probably most Indian restaurants as well.
Opentable's showing 15 places in central NJ and 48 places in northern NJ available for a 6pm res'v for 2 on Christmas. You may want to take a look over there for suggestions.
You can also try the restaurants in the local hotels. Although a chain, I think McCormick & Schmick may be open as well. Good luck!
