Thanksgiving off the menu--recommendations needed

Postby STLou » Mon Nov 12, 2007 10:17 am

Anybody out there have suggestions for eating out on Thanksgiving? My family started going to the Essen Haus when I was girl, but several years ago I became a vegetarian, which left me eating side-dishes and the rest of the family feeling very guilty. We tried a couple of buffets around town (cherokee country club was fine), but none that were especially memorable. Any Thanksgiving raves you would like to share?

Damon's usually does a thanksgiving buffet. Indian restaurants are open. Those are the two places I usually end up going to if I'm alone on thanksgiving.

Is Damon's west still open? The east side location has been closed for months.

There's always the Pine Cone.

The location has been converted into a law office for a few years now.

I usually work on T'giving, and all I have ever been able to find open are Indian buffets.

Not sure if this would be good for your family.. There is a free vegan meal at the Wil-Mar from 5 -8 pm. The food is good but probably disappointing for those who want meat and butter. The atmosphere is community center. It is lively and feels very much like Thanksgiving.

Which did you choose? Asian Kitchen is my guilty delivery pleasure, I'd have gone for that probably. Did you check Maharani?

Two opposable thumbs up for Asian Kitchen.
oop! Forgot: Maharani was open, too.
Saw that after choosing....Casa:
Adelita (tostada on roids) and Nopalito con Queso
(sauteed Shrimp and Grilled Chicken cooked with Nopales (Cactus) and Onions, simmered in a Chile Ancho and Chili Pacilla Red-Sauce.)
