We are wanting to eat out for Christmas lunch or dinner this year. Are there any restaurants open?

    Yes, here is Rob Balon's extensive Holiday list:

    Not on his list for Christmas:

    Plus all the big hotels will have buffets in their ballrooms, but they can be pricey.

    The Radisson's TGI's Friday restaurant downtown has a buffet:

      Din Ho always gets mentioned here. I understand that Chinatown will be open for dim sum. I may see if T and S is. If dim sum doesn't work out I may see if First Chinese BBQ is open.
