All adults, group of 6-8, looking to avoid cooking dinner on Christmas Day. Not really into a buffet and we are willing to consider any type of food or restaurant that serves alcohol or allows us to BYOB.

Any ideas?

FWIW I don't know of any restaurants in the Triangle that are BYOB. It is not difficult to obtain an ABC liquor license here so they pretty much all have them.

I know Heron's does have a corkage fee if you wish to bring a wine they do not have on their list. I would recommend calling them to confirm.

Good job, NRG.
Nothing in Durham other than a couple of hotel restaurants? That seems odd.

I guess Waffle House didn't make the list because mostly folks just show up drunk already....

I saw an ad in the Herald this weekend that the Millenium Hotel is doing a buffett but it looked nice & for around $25. If we didn't already have plans we would be heading over there.

We had lunch here yesterday and found the Thai food to be quite good (note we did not try the Japanese items). Having been to Thailand and the legendary Lotus of Siam in Las Vegas several times, we're fussy about Thai, but thought this place was better than most we've tried here in the Triangle. Prices were quite reasonable also.

As we were leaving, I noticed the window on the door said "Open Christmas Day for dinner 5-9:30pm"

Bosphorus and Mawa are both BYOB.

Millenium Hotel is a pretty rundown looking place and their restaurant has seen better days. I'd be wary of any buffet they set out personally.

I beg to differ. We went to their Thanksgiving buffet and it was delicious. The staff works very hard and the only glitch was at times they couldn't get the food out fast enough to keep the buffet full there were so many people there. We've gone there for turkey day & x-mas off & on for at least the last 15 years. It's not the Washington Duke Club, Fearington, Il Palio, or the Angus Barn, but the food is very good and afterall, it's only $25. each compared to those places that want $40, $50 and more a head... It gets my This year we're doing Chinese for a change of pace.
