  1. Sevy’s Grill will be open Christmas Eve for lunch and dinner, and Christmas Day for dinner. We will be featuring our regular menus, additionally offering some delicious Holiday specials such as Herb Roasted Prime Rib, Broiled Fresh Maine Lobster and Godiva Chocolate Mousse Parfaits. Reservations are beginning to fill up, so save your table soon. Contact Stefaan, Amy M. or Hillary at (214) 265-7389 or SevysCatering@aol.com.

  2. It seems every year my wife and I are looking for a good place to have something to eat on the night of Christmas. We have driven around for many hours trying to find a place that is even open. I have two suggestions:

    St. Martins Bistro: For a nice dinner

    The Loon: My personal favorite for a few drinks and dinner. My personal favorite on their menu is the chili cheesburger. I go there once a year (Christmas Day) but I swear they have one of the best burgers in town. Perhaps all the good celebrating I have had during the day sways my opinion?
