Unless you have fallen into a vat of toxic chemicals, or, say, the harbor, in recent days, I would guess that none of us are superhuman. We do not have capes, we cannot lift cars and we definitely cannot cook a homemade meal for every holiday that comes our way.

If you are still reeling from having to feed the relatives and long-distance friends who showed up at your door for Thanksgiving, don’t stress about Christmas — especially because less than a week later, you will have New Year’s Eve to worry about.

But fret not: There are restaurants across the Baltimore area who will be there for you, like these 10 eateries that will remain open on both Christmas Eve and Christmas Day this year.

Twist in Fells Point

The neighborhood bistro will be open to serve brunch from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and dinner from 4 to 9 p.m on Christmas Day. On Christmas Eve, the restaurant will remain open for dinner a half hour later.

Customers will be able to choose from an assortment of skewered, roasted “kebab” meats, as well as meat platters, moussaka — or bechamel sauce-covered lasagnas (Cazbar’s is made with lamb) — and manti, otherwise known as Turkish ravioli.

McCormick and Schmick’s Seafood and Steak in the Inner Harbor

The chain eatery will be open during their normal hours through the holiday, but with a special holiday menu that will allow customers to choose between four entrees that each come with a choice of starter and dessert.

A sugar and spice salmon with roasted butternut squash, farro and Brussells sprouts is on the menu for $50. An eight-ounce Chilean sea bass with hollandaise sauce and crabmeat on top will cost $75. There will also be an eight-ounce filet mignon, coupled with french fries and wilted spinach for $65 and a cracked black pepper open blue cobia, a white flakey fish similar to sea bass, with roasted beets, pancetta, winter greens and horseradish cream, for $55.

Maximón in Harbor East

The Japanese eatery will remain open on Christmas Eve from 11 a.m. through 11 p.m. On Christmas Day, they will remain open from 2 p.m. through 10 p.m. The restaurant will not be holding their usual happy hour during the holiday.

The sushi spot will continue to serve their usual teriyaki and poke bowls for lunch, as well as maki sushi offerings from spicy tuna to shrimp tempura. For dinner, customers can still expect a menu filled with specialty rolls piled high with lobster or smoked salmon.

Sotto Sopra near downtown

The Italian eatery will remain open for the holiday. Their hours will change on Christmas Eve to open at 4 p.m. and close at 9 p.m. On Christmas Day, they will remain open from noon to 9 p.m.

Their menu will contain daily specials that have yet to be announced. But customers can also expect the restaurant’s signature twist on Italian fare, from seafood risotto with tomato and lobster broth to short rib ravioli and spaghetti carbonara.

Morton’s Steakhouse in Harbor East

The Harbor East steakhouse will remain open from noon through 8 p.m. on Christmas Day and from 4 to 9 p.m. on Christmas Eve. Customers looking for a holiday meal will be able to order off a fixed menu, priced at $179 for two guests.

On the holiday menu, patrons can choose a 19-ounce Chateaubriand steak (a huge cut of meat) along with a salad and two side dishes. For dessert, the holiday menu provides a choice of toffee bread pudding, bananas Foster cheesecake and a Morton’s famous hot chocolate cake (similar to a lava cake).

Hard Rock Cafe at the Inner Harbor

Sometimes you just need something a little familiar for the holidays. The nationwide restaurant’s downtown Baltimore location will be operating as normal, with the addition of their Christmas menu. The menu became available starting in early December and features Hard Rock’s own holiday cocktails like “Sleighberry Sangria” and “Blackberry Rocker.” Patrons are able to order two courses for $35.95 or three courses for $41.95.

For the main course, patrons can choose between grilled bruschetta chicken, grilled salmon, a full rack of baby back ribs or a New York strip steak with mushrooms. There’s also four types of burgers: a mushroom and swiss burger, a surf and turf burger, an “Original Legendary Burger” or for the vegetarians, an Impossible Burger.
