Casual/light spot for Thanksgiving

We are thinking either Dooky Chase or Luke for lunch and would like a light/casual option for dinner. Does not need to be turkey oriented. I thought maybe concessions at the track but didn't know if that would still be hopping around 5-6. Any suggestions appreciated! Want to keep out of set menu hotel restaurants if possible. Thanks!

      I have seen that list but nothing seems to meet my requirements listed (casual, no set menu). Any other thoughts?

        I would pick a few casual places from that list and see if they are also serving from their regular menu.

        While they may have the fixed price Thanksgiving dinner there are non turkey eaters around.

        Some of the places that are big on good bar food might be choices. I'd ask at the Bombay Club for one.

          Haven't really seen anything casual or under $20pp. Not looking to eat thanksgiving again, just a light bite for dinner. Any other suggestions?

            MiLa bar snack menu will keep you under $20 pp excluding drinks. The prix fix menu is only until 3 pm, and the bar menu could be available in your hours. Not exactly "casual" but not "smancy" either:
