For many people this Holiday Season the daunting task of cooking Thanksgiving is too much to take on–especially when there are so many great local restaurants with renowned chefs creating specialty menus for the occasion. Not to mention, no clean up!
One of my favorites, The Fig, for $69 per person dinner is served family style with enough food to take home with you.
If you are looking for an all organic meal, JiRaffe Restaurant, has a 3-course dinner with all the gourmet fixings to choose from. Adults are $68 and children are $35.
The Casa Del Mar restaurant, Catch, also offers a 3-course meal for $75 per person, serving free range Turkey and holiday side dishes, not to mention pumpkin cheese cake.
Coast, at the Shutters on the Beach Hotel is a reasonable $39 per person, Thanksgiving traditional food. Or for a more fine dining experience their restaurant, One Pico, offers a 3-course gourmet menu for $75.
Looking for food to go? Josie Restaurant, has many options to choose from. Just be sure to order by November 21, 2012. Also the Huckleberry Café & Bakery, has a take-out menu, must order by November 18th, 2012 pick-up on Thursday.
The Dining Room, at the Shangri-La has a family style menu with all the classic side dishes, with turkey and ham for $60 for adults and $25 for kids.
