I have started having holiday dinners out so I can avoid the whole cooking thing. My place of choice for these holiday dinners is McCormick & Schmick in Lincoln Square. The nice thing is they are open on Thanksgiving and Christmas (and I was there with my family both days!). The food is good although the price can add up quickly. The best value is the kids meal which is about $4.95. The kids get a crudite plate, an entree and an ice cream sundae. What a deal! I want to try to order that for myself next time.
