      Me too, Bronwen. It's a very well-done and interesting restaurant.

      And certainly there are lots of other options in Guadalajara
      --Sacromonte can be good, but it can also be mediocre
      --La Matera is marvelous (Argentine steakhouse)
      --Adobe or Casa Fuerte in Tlaquepaque

      Sweetwankle, I don't want to state the obvious...but Thanksgiving is not a holiday celebrated in Mexico. You'll be able to eat dinner that day at any restaurant in Guadalajara. I don't guarantee turkey and dressing and cranberry sauce, but maybe a great mole con guacalote (mole with turkey) would do the trick. Try La Chata http://lachata.com.mx/es/ The location in the Centro Histórico is charming. I don't recommend the other location.

        Are you kidding? I thought Cristina's reply was helpful, particularly since I had the exact same reaction to your question that she did.

        If you're looking for an American-style Thanksgiving dinner you should probably head to Ajijic. The ex-pat community there is sure to have something planned.

          If you think you might go to Ajijic, see if you can get a reservation at La Nueva Posada. They always put on quite a Thanksgiving spread. Unfortunately at this late date the seatings are probably sold out.
