For most of us, the holidays are a time of family, friends, fun, and food. Turkey, ham, sweet potato casserole…….so many goodies prepared and presented on one table all for the purpose of being thankful. One of my must haves is pumpkin pie but otherwise I am pretty flexible.
Personally, I work a lot at this time of year so I miss out on some of that. If you don’t have the time to cook or just don’t feel like it this year, you have some options for eating out. Be sure to check out their websites for reservation requirements.
Known for their seafood, they also offer holiday delights such as turkey with gravy, brioche sage stuffing, and cranberry chutney. I was fortunate to enjoy a holiday dinner one year and it absolutely exceeded my expectations. In DFW you have two locations to choose from. Prices are $42 for adults and $15 for children.

I have never had the pleasure of having dinner at Mille Lire but I hope to very soon. I included them because they put a little spin on their holiday brunch………a prosecco brunch! For those of you who know me, you already know wines get my attention!
Appetizers include butternut squash and crab bisque, cauliflower diavola, and polenta (among others) while their main course includes salmon benedict, carbonara Mille Lire, and roasted turkey.
The prosecco brunch is $39 and includes one entree and a pitcher of prosecco infusion. That’s a whole lot of yummy for not a lot of cash. Totally a holiday win!

I first became acquainted with Cru when I lived in Austin, and back then I went for the wine selection. Since then I have had multiple opportunities to enjoy their food. For Thanksgiving you can enjoy three courses with entree choices including roasted turkey breast, seared scallops, filet mignon, or herb crusted salmon. $42 for adults while children age 12 under and under are 1/2 off.

I have never been to Seasons 52 but I plan to. What appealed to me about their holiday dinner is their “Never Ever Turkey.” The name comes from the fact that the turkey that they serve has never been given antibiotics. In addition to their “Never Ever Turkey,” you can enjoy mashed potatoes, stuffing, green beans, and other traditional fare. Adults are $27.95 and children are $13.95. A lot of food for a great price.

The great thing about living in DFW is you have options. There are other restaurants that are offering Thanksgiving Dinner but I selected just a few of my favorites. Be sure to check the websites for any restaurant you are interested in because they may have reservation requirements.
Some years we cook, some years we go out. The only thing we do for sure is to enjoy a day of family and food. I hope you do the same and be thankful!
Make this beautiful day count!
