Planning to skip the home-cooked thing and go out this Thanksgiving. I'm considering Citronelle...any suggestions?

  1. Believe it or not, the seafood restaurant McCormick and Schmick's has a very good Thanksgiving dinner (Yep - turkey, etc...) which was very good when I tried it and is reasonably priced. Also the Old Angler's Inn in Potomac has a delicious, romantic Thanksgiving dinner albeit pricier.

      Yep. We've done dinner 2 years out of the last 4 at McCormick and Schmick's and it was decent but VERY crowded. The food was pretty good considering...

    2. I am thinking of not cooking as well. I have tentative lunch reservations at the Ritz Carlton at Pentagon City (close, easy, etc). Should I go for M&S instead?

      1. The Washington Times had some Thanksgiving Day restaurants listed in an article 10/25/06 on game, holiday and wine dinners. A few surprises.
        Indian tandoori turkey at Rasiki or Bombay Club for a change?
        Only a listed few here but early enough to start planning.

        1. 1789 does a very nice traditional Thanksgiving dinner (certainly better than M&S; yes, I've tried both).
