Iowa City/Coralville Thanksgiving

The 'rents are coming for Thanksgiving. They said they would rather hit a restaurant than suffer through my culinary attempts. Any ideas on any options other than a Village Inn or Perkins? I dont eat meat or fowl, thats the only consideration. Thanks
I think you're probably going to have a hard time finding anything "traditional" that'll suit a vegetarian for that particular meal. However, I'm sure that lots of Chinese, Thai, Indian restaurants will be open. There are a couple of restaurants that I would check out for prix fixe or buffet type meals: Iowa River and Power Company ( http://www.powercompanyrestaurant.com/ ), Blackstone-- a new place on the deep eastside, and House of Lords. Those are likely your best bets. I've always enjoyed the drive around town on Thanksgiving. That usually yields something good :)
New Pioneer caters... you'd have to reheat the meal [they're closed Thanksgiving] but they have vegetarian options.
It was my own little slice of hell... Only made worse by the exclamations they had over how wonderful it was.. Who'd thunk my highlight would be steam table brussel sprouts.. oy..
