Vegetarian on Thanksgiving


Recommended Posts

I'm looking for a nice restaurant to have Thanksgiving dinner...But, there's one caveat...my partner is a veggie and while I will be pleased to have turkey, mashed potatoes and all the fixings, she won't be...any ideas? Thanks!
Does she eat fish? Corduroy has two fish options on its Thanksgiving menu (posted in the Corduroy thread).

No, she's the real deal...no fish. Actually, I meant to post this in the "help needed" section...maybe a mod can move this thread over?
Ok, after a bit of googling, Equinox appears to be offering a Vegetarian Thanksgiving with a cider-brined tofurky according to this press release, but I could not find news of it on their website.
