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