We decided to eat at a restaurant last year for Thanksgiving and it turned out to be a lot of fun. It was an Italian restaurant so I was skeptical but their Thanksgiving Feast was delicious. The best part was that I didn't have to clean up. We did have a fussy two-year-old though so book it in advance to try to get in a more private area if there are little kids their too. Thank you for the list! It's good to know who is an option during Thanksgiving.
