Nov 30 2018, 7:56 pm

Sometimes, a traditional Christmas dinner at home simply looks like a lot of time, a lot of dishes, and a lot of stress.

Your festive meal can still be classic and special, without the impending doom of a potentially-dry turkey and major clean up, if you opt for an evening out on the town.

These are the Toronto restaurants where you can eat, drink and be merry on Christmas day.
