BGR: The Burger Joint will feature a special “Thanksgiving on a Bun” burger ($9.99), a turkey burger topped with cranberry sauce, turkey gravy, and cornbread stuffing; and the delicious “Pumpkin Pie Shake” ($4.99), vanilla ice cream and homemade pumpkin pie, throughout November, in addition to the regular menu at all locations. BGR’s Pumpkin Pie Shake is their most popular and best-selling shake of the year. Sounds really good to me!

This Thanksgiving, Buddha-Bar DC provides an alternative option to cooking at home – a sumptuous, three-course Thanksgiving Dinner menu. The menu infuses traditional Thanksgiving fare with Buddha-Bar DC’s signature Asian-fusion influence. The prix fixe menu includes a Roasted Kabocha Squash Soup; Peking Duck with Cranberry Plum Sauce and Spiced Sweet Potato; and a Pumpkin Crème Brûlée, served with American Coffee or Tea for $75 per person. All other beverages are charged based on consumption. The regular à la carte menu will also be available.

Co Co. Sala, is giving everyone something to be thankful for this year with their "Turkey Day Treats." These festive goodies are sure to impress friends and family: Somethin' Pumpkin Bar, Chocolate Squirrel and Large Chocolate Acorn. If plain old pumpkin pie just won't cut it this year, then make Thanksgiving a little sweeter with Co Co. Sala's beautifully packaged "Thanksgiving Dessert Buffet To Go" for $95.00. Items include; 1 Triple Chocolate Pecan Pie, 1 Maple Co Co. Pumpkin Pie, 4 Chocolate & Pumpkin Seed Brittle Bark, 4 Caramel and Chocolate Baby Apples, and 4 Chocolate Turkey Place Card Holders.

Who says the only way to serve Tom Turkey is sliced up on a platter, not us. Does it always have to be a pumpkin pie for dessert, we say no! Order Cupcakes Actually's signature Thanksgiving and rich fall flavored cupcakes for a holiday to remember. Their ode to fall includes flavors such as: Pumpkin Harvest, Maple Walnut, and Caramel Apple.

How about leaving the heavy lifting and serious carving up to the professionals this Thanksgiving? Trummer's On Main is serving up a superb prix-fixe menu. Executive Chef Clayton Miller, one of Food and Wine Magazine's 'Best New Chefs 2010,' has gathered only the best fall ingredients, transforming them into seasonal and traditional dishes with a twist. Pastry Chef Chris Ford along with Sommelier Tyler Packwood lend sweetness and vine to the menu with the dessert menu and vast selection from the exclusive wine cellar.

Hi new follower here! Your blog is adorable :)

I heard about the BGR turkey but I've yet to try it... I was at Pret a Manger the other day and they have some delicious looking holiday themed sandwiches, like chicken and cranberry or the cranberry and brie sandwich which was AMAZING
