  1. I’d actually never considered eating out for Thanksgiving. In my scattershot brain it made more sense for me to spend the better part of a week preparing to host a huge number of people just to miss the entire holiday by spending it in the kitchen.

    That rambling prelude aside, I just visited (and wrote a post) about the Benjamin Steakhouse. In meeting them I learned they have a prix fixe Thanksgiving menu that is bountiful in choices and relatively reasonable in price. It is a warm, inviting environment that can have a feeling of luxury and, with the fireplace lit, the feeling of a down home holiday. It seemed a great option.
