Restaurants Open on Christmas Day

The answer used to be, 'find a Chinese restaurant,' and there are some good ones open on Dec. 25, but there's Indian, American, French and more.


All cooked out by the holidays? Kitchen appliance catastrophe? Not all restaurants are closed Christmas Day.

Here are suggestions for a few restaurants that are open in Los Altos and beyond. 

We start with a time-honored strategy: Chinese food. Here at home, two of our favorite Chinese restaurants will open their doors at 11 a.m. 

Hunan Home's Restaurant at 4880 El Camino Real and New Wing Wah at 132 State Street will serve you a tasty lunch or dinner. In Palo Alto, Tai Pan and Hong Kong Restaurant also are open, among others.

A second time-honored strategy: Hotel restaurants which often have a special menu. We've got some good options nearby, including the The Menlo Grill inside the Stanford Park Hotel in Menlo Park, Madera inside the Rosewood Hotel in Menlo Park, Restaurant Soleil in the Westin Palo Alto, or Quattro in the Four Seasons Silicon Valley at East Palo Alto.

A third strategy: OpenTable.com Here's a sampling of what we found:  Beausejour in downtown Los Altos, Bistro Vida in Menlo Park, (French); The Menu - Artisan Indian Cuisine in Mountain View; MacArthur Park in Palo Alto (American), Ristorante Don Giovanni in downtown Mountain View.

Want more? Try searching yourself on OpenTable, selecting how far from, or how close to home you want to go.
