What restaurants are open for dinner on Christmas DAY???

We don't have any family here and thought we would try going out for dinner on Christmas Day. I have mixed feelings about doing so, but it's something different to try. Anyone know what restaurants are open? Thank you!

My first suggestion would be the Old Mill, but I understand they are totally booked for Christmas Day. Unless you wish to try to be on their cancellation list.


I know Chez Victor's at Le Germain Hotel still has some dinner openings for Christmas Day, but I would get on it now. Here is the number if you are interested. (416) 883-3431 I have no problem giving it a high recommendation, for both food and ambience. If I was in Toronto this Christmas, it would be my pleasure to dine there at Christmas or any other time.

Another idea would be to perhaps try a few hotel restaurants such as the Westin Harbour Castle, the Marriott at the Eaton's Centre, or the Royal York to name a few.

Good Luck!!!

The BB33 Brasserie in the Delta Chelsea on Gerrard Street is holding a Christmas Day dinner buffet from 5 to 9 pm, at a cost of $36 per person. We've been there twice for Christmas Day buffets -- in both 2002 and 2003 -- and thought the food quality and variety were excellent. We weren't able to get a reservation for Christmas Day 2004, and wound up going to the buffet at the Courtyard Marriott just up the street at Yonge & Wood instead (that hotel is holding its Christmas Day buffet again this year; I just mentioned a few details about it in a reply to another post in this forum. It is a good buffet, but simply doesn't compare to the Chelsea's in terms of either quality or variety.)

We stopped by the Brasserie just two weeks ago to see if we could reserve a table for this Christmas, and were able to make a booking. At that time, the hostess said the Brasserie was nearly fully booked. It may be sold out by now, but is worth checking into if a great buffet meal interests you.

The adjacent BB33 Bistro is holding a four-course Christmas Day Table d'Hote, for $49 per person. I have no idea what it's like, having never dined there. The phone number for the two BB33 dining rooms is: 416.585.8992.
