Restaurants Open Christmas Day?? Airport even?

We'll be flying into Memphis Christmas Day and are trying to find a restaurant open for early dinner. I called several in the Germantown area...none are open. Downtown would be ok too. Will the airport restaurants be open?

There will be a list published in the local paper this Friday of restaurants open on Christmas. I will be happy to post it here and it will be published on gomemphis.com as well.

I would guess that the airport restaurants as well as hotel restaurants will be open.

Admit it. You know you think about it every year. It might hit you when you're grocery shopping, stuck behind the woman determined to use expired coupons. Or when you remember that you forgot to thaw the turkey. Or even when — come on, it's true — you see those distant relatives at your table and wonder why you're the one always cooking for them.
