Restaurants & Bars New Orleans Christmas Dinner

Christmas Day dinner

We will be staying in the Warehouse District at Christmas time. Although my husband's family is from New Orleans, only his mother remains and we would like to take her out for dinner on Christmas Day.

I was hoping my number one place would be open - Bayona, but they only do Thanksgiving. Is there another restaurant similar to Bayona - in that they literally have something for everyone - including vegetarians and kids - and the price point cost/value is good.

So far, open on Christmas Day:
*Cafe Adelaide - seems like our best bet
*Domenica - seems like everyone can find something here
*Luke - our third choice
*Borgne - maybe
*Grille Room - not into the price tag. Not a good cost/value. Nothing vegetarian and kids are $45/each (that'd be for PBJ and chicken strip!!)!

Closed on Christmas Day...i.e. places we'd rather eat at. :-)
Bayona, Commanders, La Petit Grocery, August, Liliette


On another note - we plan on driving to Lutcher/Gramercy to check out the bonfires on Christmas Eve. We haven't done this in YEARS!! Last time we were there, the fire dept along the levee was serving up rice and beans, etc. Has anyone been to the bonfires in recent years? Do you know if food is still being served along the levee?
Maybe there is a small restaurant we could make our way to before the bonfires start up.
Thanks a bunch!!
