If you don't have family here or just don't feel like cooking — or accidentally burn the Christmas goose — there are plenty of restaurants around the city that will be cooking on Christmas Day. Whether you're in the mood for a holiday-appropriate roasted duck or something totally nontraditional like Indian food or dim sum, here's a map of a dozen-plus restaurants that will be ready and willing to feed the hungry on Christmas. (And as is always the case on holidays, it's wise to call ahead.)

Canary by Gorji

One of the city's most underrated restaurants, Chef Gorji will offer a three-course meal for $30 from 5-9:30; regular menu will also be available.

Cook Hall

Copy Link
Hotel restaurants are typically always open on Christmas, and the W's gastropub is no different: They'll be open serving a $50 prix-five Christmas menu

CBD Provisions

Copy Link
Because nothing says Christmas like an entire pig's head in the middle of the table, Consilient's hot restaurant at The Joule will be open all day serving its regular menu.

Dragonfly

Copy Link
Swanky Hotel ZaZa's posh restaurant will be open from 11 a.m.-9 p.m. for hotel guests and locals alike. Expect dishes like venison kolaches, oysters with caviar, foie and uni, prime ribeye with Yorkshire pudding, and achiote-marinated Christmas duck.

Henry's Tavern

Copy Link
For something a little (okay, a lot) more casual, this Shops at Legacy tavern will open at 5 p.m. with pub grub like burgers, calamari and onion rings, plus some (admittedly pretty delicious) gorgonzola waffle fries. Oh yeah, and most importantly: a lot of craft beer on tap.

Kirin Court

Copy Link
Every day is a good day for dim sum, including Christmas. This ever-popular Richardson restaurant is open all day starting at 10 a.m. so you can get your fill of dumplings, roast duck, crab fried rice, steamed pork buns and more.

Landmark Restaurant

Copy Link
The restaurant at the Warwick Melrose Hotel does Christmas up big with an extravagant brunch (ideal if you've got picky eaters or a group that just can't agree on anything). $60 per person, $24 for kids 12 and under, and free for kids under 5.

LARK on the Park

Copy Link
Lark will be open for Christmas dinner serving its regular menu of fresh seasonal cuisine — and few places in Dallas are as festive as Klyde Warren Park when it's all lit up at night.

The Mansion Restaurant

Copy Link
Prepared to drop some serious coin on Christmas? The city's swankiest hotel restaurant will be open both for brunch and dinner with three-course prix-fixe menus ($105). Expect dishes like Nutella-stuffed French toast, truffle egg yolk ravioli and roast pheasant with Brussels sprouts.

Meddlesome Moth

Copy Link
The Moth knows all that family time can be stressful, so they're opening at 5 p.m. to serve you tasty libations — plus the full food menu, because nothing says Christmas like fried chicken skins.

Mesa Veracruz Coastal Cuisine

Copy Link
Mesa will be open for Christmas dinner -- and hey, if it's good enough for Beyonce and Jay Z, it's good enough for us. (Call for reservations and details on the menu that will be served.)

Our Place Indian Cuisine

Copy Link
Buck tradition (or start a new one) with a Yuletide feast of some of DFW's finest Indian food. Massive potato-stuffed samosas and amazing butter chicken will satisfy more finicky eaters, while the more adventurous can delve deeper into the menu.

The Second Floor

Copy Link
Scott and Gina Gottlich's quiet, sleek bistro tucked away on the second floor of the Westin Galleria will be open from 7 a.m.-10:30 p.m. serving the regular menu, and a late night menu from 10:30 p.m.-midnight in case you get hungry after that Christmas goose.
This grand steakhouse atop the Hilton Anatole will be serving a four-course $70 menu starting at 6 p.m. that includes your choice of dishes like mesquite-grilled quail, lobster bisque, beef filet and Colorado rack of lamb, plus pumpkin pie cheesecake or Valrhona fondant with "snickers" ice cream.
Sushi on Christmas? Don't mind if we do. Steel will be open 5-10 p.m. with an a la carte menu, or three courses for $45 that includes dishes like pork belly steamed buns and hoisin-glazed crispy duck.
