Your most stylish friend has probably already dragged you to hip culinary spot, Wax Myrtle, to capture a bar-side selfie for their grid (along with a bite of their whipped feta appetizer). But its Thanksgiving Feast For Two (To-Go!) will give you the opportunity to sample the buzzy restaurant’s fare, without the embarrassment of having to hold your homegirl’s ring light. The menu includes two entree choices, a spiced turkey breast and confit leg with white chocolate mole or ora king salmon served with field pea salsa verde. The package also has multiple options for every course, akin to an edible version of the Choose Your Adventure books. Your final decision (and dinner) will include one of their signature spreads, a dessert, and two seasonal sides—all of which looks so tasty, you won’t stop to take a pic before digging in.
Cost: Meals run $120 and serve two.
How to book:Order online by November 21 for pick-up on November 23.
Reviews have been mixed since the Thompson opened in Austin earlier this year. The big blowout launch was initially a riot, yes, but many locals have since criticized the property’s (overpriced) food and beverage outlets. Nevertheless, their fourth-floor rooftop pool and bar are a sexy choice for a drink. Paying tribute to Texas’ diverse plant life, you’ll step into an oasis of Southern shrubs, including a living green wall. Once you’ve got your selfies, head elsewhere for the real party.
