Looking for a really good farm-to-table Thanksgiving dinner in Bay Area

Doesn't have to be relegated to San Francisco; we'll do Oakland or the Peninsula... possibly even wine country if there's strong recommendation for a worthy destination restaurant. It doesn't have to be the traditional turkey dinner, however I would like it to be harvest and autumnal focused.

    How does Murray Circle fare?

    I've read so many conflicting reviews on CH, but it looks like such a lovely setting and would make for great ambience over Thanksgiving. Any thoughts on MC?

      My impression is that when Murray Circle didn't really take off the investors cut its budget.

      It's a pretty serious holiday, only a few places are open that aren't hotel restaurants (hence Murray Circle) and corporate chains. Given the very limited choices, you might as well look at the ongoing topic:

      Oliver, I just searched on open table, and there are a TON of restaurants doing prix fixe meals, you could browse there if you want :)

        There are a lot of corporate chain places and mediocre hotel restaurants on there, but a few gems. Sir and Star would definitely fit the request.

          Healdsburg, Mateo Granado's Cocina Latina. turkeys were originally domesticated in Mesoamerica and he has a Yucatan version for one option on the fixed price ($55.) feast. he maintains great connections to the local farms and fishing boats year 'round, if you haven't been there before.
