I'm looking for something American/Italian or non-hoity European that's open Christmas Day and hopefully not ridiculously expensive (let's say max of $30 and an average of $23 for a main course). I've checked Iron Gate (an old fave), Izzy's, and a few others and none are open that day.
I'm fairly new to Hayward, so if there's someplace good on the EB side in maybe a 15 mile radius I'm open to suggestions. I have not checked Ruth's Chris's schedule yet, that's pushing the price point but I'll take the family there if it's open and nothing more suitable is available. Also intend to call Paradiso for their schedule.
