Some Restaurants Open Christmas Day

Posted By on Fri, Dec 20, 2013 at 5:19 PM

Christmas Day is an almost universal day off for restaurants, but happily a few keep the stove warm and the open sign lit on the festive day.

Hotels are often likely to stay open, what with their mission of hospitality to travelers. Indian and Chinese restaurants are also a popular option. Another tip: Some neighborhood bars open in the evening to welcome refugees escaping too much family time. If you have a favorite in any of these categories, give them a call. In fact calling ahead is always a good idea; hours can change at the last minute.

Here are some restaurants planning to open on Christmas Day.

• Fleet Street Pub (615-200-0782). The friendly English-inspired pub in Printers Alley will be open 2 p.m. to midnight, so you can toast the occasion with a pint of ale and good cheer.
• Suzy Wong’s House of Yum (615-329-2913). Arnold’s Myint’s Church Street outpost of Asian-inspired cuisine and chic revelry will operate 5 to 11 p.m. with the regular menu and $5 cocktails.
• The Capitol Grille at the Hermitage Hotel (615-345-7116). Chef Tyler Brown and his team present a splendiferous brunch buffet (including beef sirloin from the hotel’s own herd of cows) and an alluring three-course prix-fixe dinner. Brunch 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., $47.50 for adults and $27.50 for children under 12. Dinner 5 to 10 p.m., $52.50 for adults and $27.50 for children under 12.
• Mason’s, the newly revived restaurant at Loews Vanderbilt Hotel (615-321-1990), has moved its traditional Christmas Day buffet to Christmas Eve (11 a.m. to 3 p.m., $30). But Mason’s will also be open Christmas Day, serving regular brunch and dinner offerings — chef Brandon Frohne just unveiled new seasonal menus this week.
• Another venerable Nashville Christmas spot: Sperry’s on Harding Pike (615-353-0809) and in Cool Springs (615-778-9950).
• Chinatown (269-3275). Definitely call before you go; this popular Green Hills eatery sometimes has a full house Christmas Day.
• Lucky Bamboo (615-760-5930), Chinatown’s new sister restaurant on Charlotte Pike, will also be open on Christmas, serving its menu of Chinese-American fare, which includes dim sum and hot pot dishes.
• An Indian buffet warms a wintry heart: Bombay Palace (615-321-6140), Shalimar (615-269-8577), Sitar (615-321-8889) and vegetarian counterpart Woodlands (615-463-3005).
