Need lunch & dinner on Thanksgiving!

Will be arriving in SF Thanksgiving day for long weekend. Have some Chow choices for the trip, but the holiday may present a problem for dining...unless it's in a hotel (which we'd like to avoid). Any recommendations of what will be open would be appreciated!

Are there no good eats in Ventura County?

If you want authentic Italian food, there's finally a place in Ventura as of Sept/08.
It's Spasso @ the end of Seaward (by the beach) in Ventura. I 've been to Italy many times and this is as close as I can get!

Positano / Amalfi Coast

This is difficult, because many places are seasonal. The few I'd recommend are closed that month. Try contacting your hotel for their recommendations...also try for "locals" thoughts.
