Thanksgiving Dinner Options?
I'm new to the city and away from home for Thanksgiving... Are there any places that serve either a) an amazing Thanksgiving dinner or b) inventive spins on Thanksgiving dinner? It doesn't need to be traditional but I'd definitely like to do something.
At the least, a place to pick up a nice dinner? Preferably in the downtown or Midtown area!
I’m curious about downtown/midtown suggestions myself, but do not have any to offer :(
If you are up for a slight commute there is Teddy’s in Oshawa. They make delish Thanksgiving dinners every day of the year. Made-from-scratch pies too. Cozy, warm, lively atmosphere.
Sky Blue Sky (on Bloor near Bathurst) does a great Thanksgiving sandwich with stuffing and cranberry sauce. Sky Blue Sky sandwiches are also served at The Mad Bean coffee house (on Eglinton near Avenue Rd.) on weekdays.
The hotels always have Thanksgiving dinner going. I would look at Studio Cafe in the Four Seasons:
If you'd like carry out, order from Summerhill Market. Their thanksgiving dinner is excellent!
446 Summerhill Ave, Toronto, ON M4W, CA
Globe Bistro and Earth have a 3 course Thanksgiving dinner. Details are on the website http://www.globebistro.com/ and I have pasted them below:

Hurray!! That's the type of article I was looking for. THANKS! I find it so hard to decide though with all the options - esp not knowing what will be good,. If you had to choose between Globe, Allens, Globe, Czecoski, Harbord Room or Edward Levesque's Kitchen, which would you go with?
Allens on the Danforth usually serves Thanksgiving dinner (excellent, too). But check to be sure....
