Brunch, 11 a.m.-12:30 p.m. takes place Dec. 9. $20 for tea, $75 for dinner and $25 for brunch. Call to reserve spaces at 254-2550. Benefits the Fan District Association.

A giant Christmas tree is the focal point of to-the-hilt holiday decorations at Richmond's venerable Tobacco Company restaurant. Dessert fanciers can ogle the lights while loading up at the buffet of sweets, then walk it off downtown amid the James Center displays.

Also this holiday season, diners can enjoy more than 400,000 twinkling lights at the Robins Teahouse at Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden. Christmas entrees include grilled veal chops with port wine poached pear, tropical lobster tail and fruitwood-smoked quail.

Dinner is served 5-9 p.m. through Dec. 30, excluding Dec. 24 and 25. Entrées are $14.95-$28.95. 1800 Lakeside Ave. Reservations required. 262-9887, ext.
