Atlanta Restaurants Open Christmas Day

Everyone looks forward to the feasting, fun, and family gathering of the holidays all year long, but one thing we could do without is the mass of dirty hand-wash only dishes afterwards! Even a paper plate substitution does not discourage the post food-frenzy mess. Don’t worry about ANY of these inconveniences this year; make a reservation for Christmas Day dinner and enjoy some quality time this holiday season AWAY from the kitchen. Get a table before the rest of the city beats you to it! (Reservations required!)
