Menu: The Miramar Hotel’s restaurant named for a famous Santa Monica landmark—the Moreton Bay Fig tree—offers, maybe unsurprisingly, a large tree-dotted patio. It’s here you’ll find both an omnivore’s Thanksgiving feast as well as a vegan one, giving you plenty of options. The family-style meat-included option involves organic Mary’s turkey that’s been brined in molasses, sage and rosemary; Flannery dry-aged prime rib with horseradish butter; caramelized-onion, gruyere and chive biscuits; crème fraîche and chive whipped potatoes; charred Brussels sprouts with ’nduja crumbs and onion cream; and pumpkin pie and a pear-and-ginger cobbler with thyme ice cream. Going vegan? Expect charred cauliflower with gremolata and sunchoke chips; Brussels sprouts with hazelnuts and saba; roasted mushrooms with gravy and pickled cranberries; and coconut panna cotta for dessert, along with passion fruit and crystalized mint.
Price: $85 per adult for omnivore menu; $65 per adult for vegan menu; $25 per child; free for kids 5 and under
