Not everyone has someplace to go for Christmas dinner. Maybe you're new in town. Maybe your travel budget took a hit this year. Or maybe some calamity has befallen your kitchen at the last minute. In a different era, the only dining rooms serving during the winter holiday were Chinese restaurants. But in Kansas City, it's often hard to find even a Chinese buffet operating on December 25. No matter: The M & S Grill on the Country Club Plaza is a beacon for lost, hungry souls. Walk-ins are welcome during the holiday hours — noon to 8 p.m. — and the venue's regular menu is offered alongside the day's special meal (typically prime rib). Single diners are treated graciously, and the staff's surprising cheer is contagious. Most important, though, the food is so good, it's as though you've given yourself an extra present.
