Looking for OC Christmas Eve Suggestions

Samantha | Nov 13, 2003 10:24 PM

I know it's a little early for Christmas Eve, but I like to plan ahead. Unfortunatly my fiance has to work the entire day of Christmas Eve, so we won't be making our usual family Christmas party. We'd like to enjoy a nice dinner that evening. We've thought of: Pascal-having a special menu that evening (is also our favorite restaurant); Napa Rose; The Ritz (never been); The Cellar in Fullerton (never been); The Studio (never been); Pinot Provence (fiance likes it better than me); Basilic (never been)...

We want a festive place, as Christmas is my favorite holiday and I am disappointed to not be attending the family gathering. Can anyone make any suggestions? I am always wary of eating at restaurants on major holidays, so any input would be great. We're open to all types of food, though the Golden Truffle is out (we've been there too much lately and need a change). Your help is greatly appreciated. Thank you!
