If you don’t want to slave in the kitchen or there are just two of you, don’t worry there are some great options for wonderful traditional Christmas Eve dinners or Christmas Day Brunches. Our two favorites are the ones offered by The Ritz Carlton Buckhead or the new St. Regis also in Buckhead. There won’t be much traffic, so you should be able to get into Buckhead pretty quickly.
