Christmas is already stressful enough. Several fantastic restaurants will be open, offering delicious dinners. Pick from prix fixe or a full menu. Before you criticize us for "promoting" restaurants being open on Christmas Eve, keep in mind that it's a tradition for many people. If you're looking for a great dinner to get the in-laws out of the house, look no further.

Balaban's Wine Cellar & Tapas Bar
(1772 Clarkson Road, Chesterfield; 636-449-6700)
It may not be the original, but Balaban's still has an excellent wine list. Enjoy some of the classic dishes and standard bistro fare with reasonably priced-wines. Short on Christmas gifts? Take some bottles home with you, too.
