Everything Thanksgiving 2009

Here are some lists about Thanksgiving dinners in the Bay Area. They include some restaurants not on Opentable in addition to all of those restaurants.

Restaurants will be added so keep checking lists. This should be helpful for next year when people start asking in July where they should go for Thanksgiving.

Here’s how price was evaluated

$ Under 30
$$ 30 – 49
$$$ 50 – 69
$$$$ 70 and over

Unfortunately because lists doesn’t format, though there are links to Thanksgiving menus, you will need to cut and paste them into your browser.
