My in laws thought they had a restaurant we were going to, but it turns out they are not open on Christmas Day (mother in law tells me this last night as we return from vacation!).  Any thoughts on where we might go?  We're a group of 6, and would be picking the in laws up in Bayonne prior to heading out.  Thanks!

I think I need to cast my net wider.  Both are of course booked solid!  Anyone have alternate thoughts in nearby Essex or Bergen, or even Middlesex or Union counties?

Thanks Rosie!  We actually found a spanish/portugese restaurant in Bayonne that is open called Mediterraneo.  My husband and I used to go there when we first got married, and the food is decent (at least its better than my mother in laws!).  I'll let you know how it turns out.  The most important thing isn't really the food, especially this holiday--its that we're all together and safe and healthy....
