Fig Restaurant in Santa Monica is trying something new this Thanksgiving, they are serving a dinner of turkey leftover. Here is a quote from Chef Ray Garcia on the menu,
"For our second Thanksgiving at FIG, we’ve decided to forgo tradition and offer “leftovers” first. Although you’re welcome to enjoy a traditional Thanksgiving feast of roasted organic turkey and all the trimmings, we’re also offering a handful of dishes that capture the essence of this holiday’s key flavors."
On the menu are items like
Turkey Pie
Turkey Tacos
Turkey Waldorf Salad
Turkey and Prosciutto Croquettes and
Turkey Schnitzel
I think this sounds great. My family and I are going and will report back. Here is a link to their special menu. Everything is also available to-go for Thanksgiving night.

101 Wilshire Blvd.
Santa Monica, Ca.

    I don't think paying $20+ dollars to park and eating leftovers is very festive.

      You do understand it's not really leftovers, right? It's dishes inspired by the day after Thanksgiving and it's leftovers.

        Yeah, I do. But I'm still in shock from having paid horrendous parking fees at a recent bat mitzvah.

          Last time we ate at Fig, parking was validated and free (except for the valet tip of course).

            Public parking is less than 5 minutes walk from there for a few dollars. Plus, Fig validates.

            I think this menu is inspired, and look forward to a report back.

            Fig does validate. It is free for 3 hours.
