Thanksgiving is three days away and this traditional holiday in South Florida gives us many choices from the time-honored classics to the nouveau and eclectic with flavors and entrées that span the globe. If you’re not into cooking, a conventional dinner for eight completely prepared ready for pickup on Thanksgiving morning can be had at the Four Seasons Palm Beach. If dinner plans don’t work for you and you’re ready to pass on watching the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade Thanksgiving brunches are also being served that you may want to check out. Global menus featuring Asian, Latin, and Italian, along with fusion and contemporary American cuisine have taken many menus by storm. So whatever you’re in the mood for it’s almost guaranteed it’s being served somewhere in South Florida, complete with ocean views and garden views. I have linked to each restaurant and hotel for easy viewing of their holiday menu.
Happy Thanksgiving to all and as the weeks go on I will continue to update this post with more restaurant offerings. (one note: all prices quoted are exclusive of tax and gratuity; be sure to take good care of your servers who work the holidays) updated: 11/19/12
