Westchester- open christmas day, chinese or other suggestions

  • 7

We follow the jewish tradition of a movie and chinese on Christmas. Last year we went to a movie at the new Ridge Hill theater and wound up eating at a diner. I would prefer some good chinese food or other good ethnic food. I have seen people post about Central Seafood and Aberdeen here. Does anyone know if they are open christmas day? Which would you recommend and any other suggestions? Thanks,

  1. I'm pretty sure just about every Chinese restaurant would be open, as well as other ethnicities that are not Christian. Both Central Seafood and Aberdeen are very good: we tend to opt for Central SF more often because parking is easier and they are bigger (also, I think, a bit cheaper for fish, etc.) Both cater to large Chinese groups, so at least most of their food is authentic. Each has certain dishes that I prefer over the other's as, I suppose, would be true of any other type of restaurant. For years we celebrated Xmas at Bengal Tiger but, of course, they are no longer available. I assume other Indian establishments must also be open.

    1. I know Sushi Mike's in Dobbs Ferry will be open for sure.

            1. Thanks everyone for your good ideas. We wound up with my sons pick Sushi AYCE at Khangri in Yonkers. Decent fresh sushi (although my MIL said the eel in her dragon roll had no flavor, I don't eat it so don't know) and he was satisfied for at least a month or two. I still want to try Aberdeen.

              1. We went to Central Seafood (not so much because we love it but mostly because it was open). We got there around 5:30 and we were seated right away but by 6:00, there must have been 30 people waiting by the door!
