This next-level diner is offering a Thanksgiving feast from 10am to 4pm, with three multiple-choice courses that will force you to make some tough decisions this holiday. Start with an Indian Creek mushroom bisque hit with truffle balsamic and herb croutons, or go for the lighter warm spinach, blue cheese, and pear frisee salad. Next up: maple glazed turkey, herb-crusted butchers cut, local catch bearnaise, or grilled san san tofu with smoked mushroom gravy. Whatever you choose, it’ll come with challah stuffing, 4-cheese potato gratin, and local market veggies. Caramelized apple kugel, mom-style chocolate cake, and Maker’s Mark pecan pie a la mode make for a sweet and tasty ending.
Cost: $45 for three courses, not including gratuity and beverages; reserve online or at 713-868-1131
