Thanksgiving in Santa Monica?

  • 5
  • Share

My daughter wants the traditional Thanksgiving dinner, but my friend is a pescatarian; me, I'm open. We don't have a car, so a place along any bus line that goes through downtown Santa Monica will work. We're not made of money, but are willing to spend a little more for good quality vs. quantity (REAL gravy and mashed potatoes, fresh veggies and desserts, etc.).

Any suggestions?

  1. Had a great Thanksgiving dinner last year at Fig in Santa Monica. Both traditional and untraditional on their menu. Great Food. Here is a link to this years Thanksgiving menu:

      We had Christmas dinner last year at Fig and it was terrific. The turkey was delicious.

        Thanks, but my pescatarian friend would be stuck with side dishes at Fig. We'd need a few veggie entrees and/or a few seafood dishes.

        Anyone else?

    2. Locanda Del Lago and JiRaffe will both be serving Thanksgiving dinner.

        We've decided on Finn McCool's. Their Thanksgiving Dinner is around $22 and they're serving their full menu, giving my friend the options of salmon or a darn good fish-and-[garlic] chips. I also like not having to 'dress up'!
