Where to go for inexpensive but decent Thanksgiving turkey dinner?

I see that the Tulip at Queen East & Coxwell is advertising a turkey dinner for $16. Starts at noon on Sunday 9th and goes until 10th I think.
Any other suggestions?

    1. You may want to try a gastro pub like The Queen and Beaver. Otherwise, all the top hotels will have turkey dinners. I remember having a very good yet fairly priced dinner at Annona in The Park Hyatt a few years back.

        Agreed on Annona. Not inexpensive though. But they always put on a lovely Thanksgiving menu. In fact we have reservations for this Sunday and very much looking forward to it.

          More than double the cost, but probably also twice as good, I notice that Globe Bistro is offering a prix fixe 3 course turkey dinner with trimmings for $35 pp.

            It's probably 5x as good as the Tulip, for 2x the price. I'm waiting for Nov. 4, when they have the next winemaker's dinner!

              I took my parents and a friend to Globe on Sunday. The turkey lovers LOVED the meal. The people that are not-so-much on turkey had a meh experience. Yes, yes. They shouldn't have ordered the turkey. I must say though, the green beans were an orgasmic experience. I have never in my life had green beans so delicious. They were served with a butter sauce, but there was an herb or spice in it that I couldn't place. So, so good.

                Glad to hear that Globe delivered again, we were there last year it was possibly the best Turkey dinner we'd ever had.

                We opted for something close and mellow this year and had a great turkey meal at The Blake House on Jarvis. It was solid with thoughtful sides and a steal at $19. Globe was better but we still had an excellent meal about about half the cost, we'd gladly return to both in the future.

        2. I used to go to the Madison for a Turkey dinner - it was always very good. I agree - the pubs can do a turkey.

          1. Just as a note to the Thanksgiving menus, Enoteca Sociale is doing a $35 three-course dinner. I don't know what it consists of, but they exclaim to go and celebrate the Roman festival of Cerelia with them. I thought that was cute. Did they have turkeys back then?
