State College, PA - XMAS nite dinner

Know of any decent restaurants open Christmas night? ASAP?

  1. 100 Degrees Hot Pot
    Fuji Jade
    My Thai
    Little Szechuan
    Sichuan Bistro

    I am pretty sure that at least the top two are open. If you go to Fuji Jade, get the roast duck!! It is awesome. And the Chengdu edamame. And the sashimi for one, which is *plenty* for two.

    1. Oh, and do share which place you ended up choosing and how you liked it :-)

        We really liked the town and campus, would be great to come back when it's all open! Penn Campus is beautiful.

      2. 99%of all places were closed, which is understandable. We've never traveled Xmas day before. Ended up at Champs - not great, a fair hoagie some good Belgian beer and a very cheery convivial atmosphere.

          Oh, wow! I'm 99% sure that both the hot pot place & Fuji Jade were open. Did you call them to check?

          Champ's has probably the best wings in town, but I hate sports bars, so I don't go there often (only to shoot pool in the basement).
