Among the many things to be grateful for this autumn: You don’t actually have to roast a Thanksgiving turkey if you don’t want to, let alone clean up after.
Many of America’s finest restaurants are open for Thanksgiving dinner. So instead of making stuffing and cranberry sauce, just make a reservation. While some cities have more options than others—it’s practically business as usual in New York, while San Francisco is letting the tryptophan take effect—here’s a look at some menus worth feasting your eyes on. (All prices per person unless otherwise noted.)
From the culinary stylings of husband-and-wife Bill and Giuliana Rancic—he of Apprentice fame; she of E!—comes a $90 tasting menu that includes an aged parmesan risotto and coal-roasted king crab.
