Choosing where to eat Thanksgiving dinner isn't easy. You could cook it yourself, you could get yourself invited over to friends or relatives, or you can make reservations at a restaurant and let someone else worry about everything. Most hotels offer a traditional Thanksgiving dinner or you could try one of the restaurants listed--there's a place to fit almost every mood. But hurry and reserve, Thanksgiving is one of our most widely celebrated holiday and restaurants tend to get booked up fast.
