Thanksgiving Dinner Recs in Contra Costa?

  • 2

Anyone heard of a good place to go for Thanksgiving Dinner without having to go to SF or Berkeley?

Going to spend Thxgiving with Dad's side of the fam. this year. I'm usually the cook, so looking for a good restaurant to recommend to Mom and rest of the family to go for Thanksgiving dinner. They tend to want to stay on this side of the tunnel -- Lafayette, Walnut Creek, PH, Alamo, Danville etc all options.

  1. In Lafayette, I'd recommend Chow- they have local, fresh ingredients and it appears that they're going to have a Thanksgiving take-home menu as well. They make fresh pies too!

    1. Opentable is a good resource.

      They give a brief description with prices and you can link to the website for details. You can also take a look at the recent diner reviews for each place. I wouldn't make any decision by star ratings because a few people who might have personal agendas can throw off the stars of an otherwise good restaurant.
