Thanksgiving is next week, on Thursday November 27th, and it’s time to start planning your day. For those looking to eat out, we’ve rounded up a few of the cozier, more intimate choices that would be particularly nice for visiting family, but don’t forget to check out the huge list of places accepting reservations on OpenTable.

Right on the water, in a perfect setting for out-of-towners, check out the abundant menu at ~BUTTERFLY~. It’s three courses, with choices of appetizer and dessert, and a serious spread for the entrée, including salt-baked turkey breast, confit leg, and all the sides you need. It’s $55 per person, not including tax and tip. Pier 33, The Embarcadero, 415-864-8999.

~BURRITT ROOM & TAVERN~ is offering a three-course prix-fixe on Thanksgiving from 5pm-9pm. The menu offers choices including turkey, of course, or a braised short rib with smoked potato gnocchi, persimmon, pomegranate, and veal consommé. The dinner is $58 per person; call for reservations. 417 Stockton St. at Bush, 415-400-0561.

British-inspired ~THE CAVALIER~ is offering a prix-fixe menu all day long (11:30am-7:30pm) for $75 per person, with wine pairings for an additional $50. 360 Jessie St. at 5th St., 415-321-6000.

Also offering a prix-fixe all day long is the neighborhood-friendly ~COCOTTE~ in Russian Hill, where you can get beef Wellington, braised turkey, yam casserole, and pumpkin tart. The dinner is three courses with choices for $69 per person, served from 12pm-9pm. 1521 Hyde St. at Jackson, 415-292-4415.

Check out ~ELITE CAFE~ for a Southern-inspired feast. It’s available from 2pm-8:30pm and is $65 per person or $30 per child under 10. 2049 Fillmore St. at California, 415-673-5483.

For a cool location near the Embarcadero, ~ONE MARKET~ is offering a four-course Thanksgiving meal for $67 per person, or $29 for children under 10, not including tax and tip.

If you’re doing Thanksgiving at home, or as a guest at someone else’s house, you’ll be a star with ~LE DIX-SEPT PÂTISSERIE~’s baked goods. As usual, they’ve brought their A game for the season: the pumpkin tart this year has milk chocolate and toasted pumpkin seeds and is a total looker. They’ve also got a chocolate tart, a savory tart with mushrooms and onion confit, and cheese gift boxes. Check out all the options here and make sure to order for delivery soon (they stop taking orders at midnight tonight).

Are you responsible for The Bird this year? has put together a handy guide of where to buy your turkey, including delivery, pickup, ordering, and pricing information. Check it out right here.

As we all remember to pause in this busy season and give thanks for all of our bounty, it’s also so so important to remember those in our own community who go without. This is a very busy time of year for the SF-Marin Food Bank, as many families struggle to make ends meet. Until Thanksgiving, PG&E will be matching all donations to the food bank, so your donation doubles its impact. Please consider donating whatever you can to this wonderful cause.
