Hi all, never have in my life gone out for Thanksgiving dinner before. Looking for something downtown that is recommended for 4 adults to go to for Thanksginving dinner, likely on Sunday, maybe even a brunch if it is open until mid afternoon at least.

I know about King Eddie, Royal York, and Casa Loma

Anything else out there that is worth checking into? Planning on somethng closer to traditional, but willing to consider variations if they are worth it.

Although I love kids, not sure if we are looking for a place with more kids than adults for this particular meal.

Thanks for any input.

    I've just done some research for someone from out of the country who has never had a Thanksgiving dinner before either. This is what I found:

    Fran's Restaurant - for $22.95: Harvest soup or Salad, Turkey, Stuffing, Cranberry Sauce, Mashed Potatoes, Seasonal Vegetables, Pumpkin Pie & Coffee or Tea.

    The Old Mill - $35.95 for Thanksgiving Brunch Buffet and $37.95 for Thanksgiving Dinner Buffet. Didn't call to see what is being served but have found their Brunch to not be bad in the past.

    Peartree Restaurant - for $19.99: Roasted Butternut Squash Soup, Biscuit, Turkey, Stuffing, Gravy, Cranberry Sauce, Mashed Potatoes, Seasonal Vegetables and Pumpkin Pie.

    The Tulip - has a Roasted Ontario Turkey dinner for $11.45 regularly on the menu that includes Sage Dressing, Cranberry Sauce, Gravy, Fresh Vegetables and Mashed Potatoes or Fries.

      Mark McEwan's One Restaurant at the Hazelton is doing a Thanksgiving dinner for $35, which is actually pretty affordable given what the rest of the menu is going for. Probably going to be really really delicious though.

        Globe Bistro is doing a $35 Thanksgiving turkey prix fixe. I know it's not downtown but it's just a short hop on the subway to Broadview station -
