Good Place to Spend a Thanksgiving in NOLA?
Eater just posted a short list: http://nola.eater.com/archives/2011/11/10/the-thanksgiving-map-where-to-eat-for-turkey-day.php#more
And Nomenu has a pretty exhaustive (though slightly unreliable, but you'll be calling ahead anyway) list: http://www.nomenu.com/thanksgiving/in...
A lot of people spend the afternoon at the track, too. Also a reserve ahead kind of thing.
