View as Map

Alternatively, this map could have been titled Louisville's hotel, Asian and dive restaurants, but, well, SEO (it's surprising Asian restaurants are open though as the three kings are "of Orient"). And yes, this list of restaurants open on Christmas bares a remarkable resemblance to the restaurants that were open on Thanksgiving, because, well, Louisville. Don't get stuck eating in a manger, make your reservations now.

English Grill

The Seelbach's flagship restaurant is serving breakfast and lunch with carving, omelet and waffle stations; fresh seafood; and desserts. $50 per person.

Eastern House

From a Facebook comment: "We hadn't planned ahead, found ourselves alone without food on Christmas and the only place open on Dixie Hwy was the Eastern House Chinese buffet. To this day, in spite of [my friend's] dementia, it is one of the few things she remembers. And fondly."
A call confirmed it'll be open 5-9:30 p.m. But seeing as its website—louisvillesitar.com—boasts, "We are located conveniently near downtown and Vanderbilt University," you might want to double-check that.

Kashmir Indian Restaurant

Copy Link
At least one person thinks Christ himself may have gone to Kashmir.

BLU Italian Grille

Copy Link
The restaurant at the Marriott Downtown will be open 12-4 p.m. with seatings on the hour.

Twig and Leaf

Copy Link
There's a time and place for Twig and Leaf. And, if for you, that includes Christmas, well may 2013 be a better year.
