Howdy Chowhounds of Canada-
My wife and I (from Seattle) will be spending x-mas weekend hiding out in Victoria. I'm looking for some suggestions on great places to eat in Victoria that are likely to be open at the holidays.
In particular- Can anyone recommend some places good for lunch on Christmas day (I know it's a long shot), and also the following two days (Sat / Sun)? We'll have wheels, so can make the trip to someplace outside of downtown.
More importantly -- any good recommendations for dinner Sat night the 26th? I was thinking of Paprika, but it looks like it will be closed that weekend (I'm guessing sister Stage as well). Is Bard & Banker worthwhile? Anywhere else good?
Thanks in advance for any good suggestions, and happy holidays!
(BTW, I'm cross-posting this on the Pacific NW board, so apologies if you have to look at it twice)
