Plans have suddenly changed and we will be stuck at a hotel in Cupertino for the holiday. Any suggestion within 10-15 miles of this area? Traditional or non, at this point beggars can't be choosers.

    At the top end price and ambience-wise, Opentable is showing availability at The Plumed Horse in Saratoga. More chow intell at this link,

    According to the restaurant's website, the Thanksgiving menu is $80 per adult and $40, child.

      Here's a list of South Bay Restaurants serving special Thanksgiving Dinners

      The map on that page can give you a feel for how close they are to you. I seriously toyed with the idea of going to Arcadia for the turkey fried it duck fat.

      There are links to online menus if the restaurant had one.

      Many are on opentable. You are on you own as far as checking availabilty there. If you do go to Arcadia, hope you will post about it.

        Turns out Plumed Horse does have an online menu which I missed the first time.

        I don't know, Arcadia just sounds better to me though I know PH is the better restuarant.

        Some of the lower Peninsula restaurants might also be in your range

        I took my dad and his sister to Quattro in Palo Alto for Thanksgiving or Christmas a couple of years ago. I was surprised at how good the food was.

        Opentable shows several other options in Palo Alto and Mountain View, including The Kitchen Table and Sakoon, both of which have gotten favorable reports here.
