Thanksgiving Dinner Cheap/Moderate Pre-fixe?

MyTongueEatsThenSpeaks Oct 14, 2007 01:58 PM

I know it's super early but I think this fall weather has me excited about the holidays already! Anyone have ideas on Thanksgiving Dinners in the Los Angeles area --nothing to pricey (not sure if Jar is planning something but that's a bit too high for us). Not looking for something fancy where we have to dress up, but something comfortable and good. Usually we never plan far enough in advance and always end up going to Norms...don't laugh! This year though I'm trying to improve my time management skills and book something early. Thanks guys!

      I would try literati2 on the westside - shouldn't be too expensive i don't think
      Campanile was WAY too busy and crazed last thanksgiving (tho the food was great, as always

        Due to last-minute glitches my SO couldn't join me, so my last Thanksgiving at Campanile was my first solo in several years.

        I might have felt differently if I'd been trying to have a conversation, but in a way the busyness was much more comforting than if the place had been half-empty. And the service was just as good.

        Baby Blues BBQ

        Tam O'Shanter Inn

        A little pricier, Jar

              I remember last year they were open on Christmas Day and New Year's Day too.

          I've heard that the Tallyrand in Burbank is excellent for Thanksgiving.

            During a kichen remodel friends tried and liked The Pantry downtown.

              Is Campanile too expensive? It's always been my favorite local T'giving destination.
