      I didn't realize that Vail was considered a Denver suburb.

      My suggestion on this list would definitely be Table 6, largely because I don't associate Italian food or sushi with Thanksgiving.

        Megiac - Don't shoot the messenger. I just cut and pasted the OpenTable list, figuring it might coincidentally be useful for someone else.

        1. re: ClaireWalter

          Any dig was directed at Open Table's wacky geography skills and not at you, Claire. Sorry if I was unclear.

          1. re: Megiac

            Nothing unusual. used to include Telluride (TELLURIDE!!!) with Denver listings.

    2. Aside from the restaurants already listed, my guess is that anyplace in a hotel will be open. Some suggestions:

      Augusta in the Westin Tabor Center. Haven't been there for many years, but it used to be excellent.
      McCormick's in the Oxford. Part of the chain of upscale places, but consistently good.
      Panzano in the Hotel Monaco. Like Megiac said, I'm not sure I'd be up for Italian.

        I believe that Augusta at the Westin Tabor Center is now open only for breakfast. I also believe that change came when The Palm opened on the hotel's ground floor.

        1. re: ClaireWalter

          Like I said, it's been years. But, I was at the Westin for a martini after the Rockies lost the first home game of the World Series and I *swear* there were people sitting inside. But it just might have been a Hendricks hallucination.

          1. re: IslayMan

            There might have been people in that space, but it could have been a private party. Or I could be mistaken in thinking Augusta is now only a breakfast place.

        2. re: IslayMan

          ...and Panzano is closed for Thansgiving.

        3. The Burnsley Hotel Restaurant has a traditional Thanksgiving Dinner, from 11am to 3pm. $29
