Sure, a bevy of tourist traps will remain open for Christmas Eve (e.g., Benihana, Cioppino's on the Wharf, Stinking Rose, et al.), but other places that won't offend your tissue-tender gastronomical sensibilities are as well. Noted eateries from Hogs & Rocks to Flour + Water to A!6 will be able to fill your gut prior to Santa's arrival. For those of you who have yet to seal your Christmas Eve plans (some of us come from families who placed greater importance on Christmas Eve dinner than Christmas Day dinner; we fall into the former category), here's a list of places you might enjoy.

Remember to call these places in advance in case they close early or whatnot. OK? OK. Also, you can place a reservation, or find out more, at OpenTable.
