Looking for very fine restaurant in South Beach for Thanksgiving dinner. Expense doesn't matter much.

    Looking for traditional Thanksgiving food or something different?

        Well I've been out of Miami for about 3 years now, but there are a number of great restaurants I still frequent. So I don't know who will be offering traditional meals, but I'm sure most of them will.

        Actually, I'm doing Thanksgiving in Miami this year (at an apartment, though) but I think we're bringing in Joe's Stone Crabs side dished to go with the turkey.

      Good luck! I know of no places that are known for their T-Day dinners. You should call around.

        OK. But could you name two or three that are really fine. I'll call them afterl that.

        How about this - Citysearch has a listing of restaurants supposed to be open on Thanksgiving:

        Joe Allen is great, Big Pink is very casual but would probably be a fun thanksgiving, I've never done Blue Door but it's quite posh, being in the Delano and all, nor have I done Shula's Steakhouse.

        Another possible way to get a lead on restaurants that may be open is to check on booking a reservation through Opentable.com. Not all local restaurants are on there, but several are. I just tried it and there are several that are apparently booking for Thanksgiving day. Worth noting:

        Chef Allen - this is North Miami so geographically undesirable if you're fixated on South Beach, but I'll bet it's good. Here's the menu:

        In South Beach:
        Americana (in the Ritz Carlton
        )Escopazzo (good Italian)
        Mark's South Beach (one of my favorites)
        The Forge (Mid-Beach, actually; a somewhat silly place but I'll bet it's good for Thanksgiving)
        Wish

        I'd check and make sure they're really open.

          Now that's a real help. Many thanks.
