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.

          2. I've been adding restuarnts to the lists whenever I find them ... newspapers, blogs,opentable updates. Anyway, some of the lists exceeded the 25 list limit. Here are two more lists

            1. I posted about the complete Thanksgiving dinner available as take-out from the Mi Pueblo Food Center in Salinas,
              http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/669840

              I haven't had the dinner but have eaten from the in-store taqueria. The food is quite spicy hot and salty, and generally competent although not my first choice down there.

              This Mexican supermercado chain has stores in Mountain View, Hayward, Oakland and San Jose. The Salinas store will be open the early part of the day tomorrow, other stores may be as well.

              1. Lakeside Cafe has three ccourse turkey dinner for $18.95 on Thanksgiving. On Ocean Avenue just off of 19th in Lakeside Village the food is always well prepared and nicely presented. Not overly snobbish, just comfortable enough but a step above your basic neighborhood restaurant...good food, reasonably priced and even an early bird special.

                1. So ... did anyone beside me eat out on Thanksgiving?
