merry-christmas-greetings

Christmas Eve and Christmas Day Ho Ho Holidays OPENINGS!! Here is a sampling of area restaurants that are open on Christmas Eve and Day. This list is by no means all-inclusive and it is still being updated!! Because many of our local independents are closed throughout the holiday or just for Christmas Day, Epicureans Unite adds local franchises and chains to provide a larger array of options for your friends and family. Always check with a business to ensure that times are correct, we do our best but may not be perfect! 12/20/13
