The restaurants keep coming, even if diners still stuffed from Thanksgiving just want to hibernate for the remainder of 2017. Fortunately for hungry bears still looking to pack on some winter fat, there's plenty of variety for foraging: sushi and other more esoteric Japanese cuisine, comfort food with a little rock-and-roll edge, French, Indian and even Shanghai-style Chinese dumplings and noodles.
