SUSHI:  Its whats for Christmas dinner.
As you might have guessed, most Central Arkansas restaurants are going to be closed on Christmas Day. Because the holiday falls on a Sunday this year, even more restaurants are allowing their employees to spend it with their families this year. The few I’ve been able to scare up:

The Arkansas Queen Riverboat is doing a special Christmas Day cruise. Boarding is at 12:30. It’s traditional holiday fare including ham, turkey, all the fixings and dessert. It’s $39.50 a person and you’ll need to make your reservations quick — tables are going fast. (501) 372-5777.

Ashley’s at the Capital Hotel is open regular hours Christmas Eve but will only offer breakfast on Christmas Day, with regular menu service 6-10 a.m. Reservations suggested. (501) 374-7474.

Camp David at the Holiday Inn Downtown is offering its Christmas buffet 11 a.m.-2:30 p.m. $19.95 a person, reservations suggested. (501) 975-2267.

Capital Bar and Grill is open regular hours both Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.

Capriccio’s at the Peabody Hotel is open regular business hours Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, with breakfast offered 6-10:30 a.m., lunch 11 a.m.-2 p.m. and dinner 6-9 p.m. on Christmas Day. (501) 399-8000.

Golden Corral is serving all its regular items plus turkey and dressing. Open 10 a.m.-8 p.m. $13.99 adults. 5001 Warden Road, North Little Rock. 771-4605.

Luby’s is open 11 a.m.-5 p.m. with turkey and ham and such for the discerning Christmas diner. (501) 219-1567.

Opal Mae’s in Russellville is taking reservations now for Christmas family style dinners with prime rib, shrimp scampi, baked ham and all the fixings, including made to order dessert cups. Reservations are taken for hour sittings beginning with the 11 a.m. sitting. Adults $16.50, Seniors $15, kids $10, under 5 free. (479) 967-6725.

Panda Garden is offering its usual sushi-Chinese-crab legs and ribeye buffet for $13.95 11 a.m.-9 p.m. (501) 224-8100.

Papa Sushi is open regular hours Christmas Eve and evening hours (5-9 p.m.) Christmas Day. (501) 821-7272.

The Riverfront Steakhouse at the Wyndham in North Little Rock is offering Christmas Brunch 11 a.m.-2 p.m. $24.99 adults/$12.99 kids. Reservations are suggested. (501) 371-9000.

Tokyo House is open regular hours both Christmas Eve and Christmas Day with its usual slightly exotic and completely packed menu of items. (501) 219-4286.

So... sushi, anyone?
