The weeks leading up to Thanksgiving can be a mad dash for those who decide to forgo bird-basting in favor of feasting out.
Though some restaurants have yet to finalize their holiday menus, the following places got the nod from Chowhounds on recent Thanksgivings. To stay current with what restaurants are offering this year, keep checking OpenTable. Here are some places to watch:
• The Elite Café's creative sides have impressed TopoTail, who raves about the signature biscuits. This year, turkey and fixin's will be offered (as well as a couple of other mains for those who don't adore the bird). Note: Elite's biscuits will be available frozen, in case you'd like to serve them with your home-cooked feast.
• One Market's four-course meal is a great choice for big groups and anyone dining with kids, mariacarmen says, and the proximity to the Embarcadero makes it a convenient choice for a post-feast stroll.
