Thanksgiving 2006?

mind set on a fantastic Thanksgiving Dinner this year,
somewhere where I can bring fine red from the my cellar,
any place open that's stellar?

      Thanx Kitchen Queen, an excellent suggestion,
      I never know who's open/cookin' Thanksgiving.

      1. re: Kitchen Queen

        was about to suggest that too - but a bit unsure at $60 a person, so keeping an eye out for something a little less (of course, I might just wound up grabbing a take-it-home from a market.)

          Call this place: Kate Mantilini on Wilshire and Doheny (310) 278-3699 (and, now in Woodland Hills) maybe they'll be open. Went there last night for a late night supp (11:30P) Yum! Chicken pot pie and fab extra sourdough bread.

      2. We went to Jar last year which was suprisingly a little dull and the service seemed to ignore us (party of 2) in favor of the bigger parties. I had a similiar posting a few days ago and didn't get a lot of recs either... any other ideas out there?

          Maybe try One Pico at Shutters or some other hotel restos. I would love to do the Ritz Carlton Huntington but it's pretty pricey.--tried many times for a good T-Day meal out, & one Pico was pretty good one year, most have been so-so (except for a seafood dinner in Puerto Vallarta one time...not exactly traditional). Usually the turkey has become tired, the staff is stressed, & it's never gonna live up to home cookin.' But at least you are not swamped in the kitchen for days.

        2. I always eat Chinese on Thanksgiving, so I don't have to eat "traditional" food, and the restaurants are open and serve the regular menu.
