Thanksgiving in New Orleans
Lots of locals go to the Fair Grounds/Race Course for the opening of the racing season on Thanksgiving Day. It's a scene, and the food in the clubhouse is supposed to be pretty decent. They are auctioning off tables to benefit the American Cancer Society. Check this link...
Intriguing question. Holidays can be tough for finding restaurants. I browsed the list someone else posted. You didn't specify a price range, but I ate at Commander's Palace 5 years ago and still remember the entire meal, it was that good...............
