Where to Eat on Christmas Day in Toronto

Okay, let’s face it - not everyone is down to cook a festive holiday feast with all the fixings. Maybe you don’t celebrate Christmas, or you’re foregoing tradition to come home to a spotless kitchen, with zero dishes to wash. Either way, you’ve gotta eat, and we know where you should go. You won’t lose sleep over your holiday meal thanks to these amazing Toronto restaurants that are open on the big day.

We will warn you...with food this good, you might just eat yourself into a deep sleep until the new year.
