Bring Us Our Figgy Pudding (Or Whatever's on the Menu)

By Erin

Whether you're exhausted from opening presents or looking to spend the quality time on Christmas with family instead of the stove, a few local restaurants will be open and serving dinner on Christmas Day. Most restaurants in hotels will be open and serving that day. I've compiled my highlights of the hotel options and a few other ideas for Christmas supper.

The Blue Duck Tavern in the Park Hyatt offers seasonal bounty in a three-course prix fixe menu ($75). Served from 6-10 p.m., the options will include Christmas Capon and plenty of winter vegetables.

Though the menu has not been completed for Christmas dinner at Corduroy in the Sheraton Four Points, the restaurant promises a three-course prix fixe meal ($45) from 5-9 p.m.

The family-friendly Daily Grill in the Georgetown Inn will be open until 8 p.m. with a regular menu and holiday specials that will likely include festive dishes like ham.

Cafe MoZU in the Mandarin Oriental Hotel is offering a traditional dinner from 6-10 p.m. The typically Asian restaurant will serve traditional Christmas dishes as well as a few items with Asian influence. The menu includes wild mushroom and truffle risotto, roasted goose breast, short rib in pineapple ginger beer and a dessert of white chocolate peppermint mousse.

Seasons at Georgetown's Four Seasons Hotel will also serve dinner beginning at 6 p.m. In addition to the usual a la carte menu, diners can partake in a festive five-course prix fixe menu ($80). The menu includes wild branzino, roasted turkey or venison as entree choices and a baked Alaska to top things off.

Many restaurants in Chinatown, including my favorite Chinatown Express, will be open during regular business hours.For a bit of Christmas spice, Indique will be open and serving the regular menu of upscale Indian fare from 5-9:30 p.m. OpenTable has a list of a few more spots.

What about places open for brunch? This is my husband's and my first Christmas together and our first away from our mutual families. His usually goes out for brunch in the morning so I'm trying to continue that tradition for him.

Help! It's my father's birthday on Christmas (and its a BIG one), we would like to celebrate his birthday, and not have it be overshadowed by Christmas. We usually eat at home. Any suggestions? We want to go beyond Chinese Food and a Movie. What is open? Suggestions for activities would be welcome as well. We are 6 adults and 3 children. Thanks!
