Starting to despair about Thanksgiving dinner for picky family

brighton312 | Nov 8, 2010 07:29 AM

Let me start by saying that I think I've read every Thanksgiving thread on this board (and there are a lot!) There were tons of good suggestions and I looked up many of them, but am having a hard time finding a place that meets the specifications of my family of 5. Can anyone help?

We need to find a restaurant that:
- Serves a somewhat traditional Thanksgiving dinner
- Also has vegan options
- Has some degree of atmosphere (not a diner)
- Will not cost more than $20 per person (including tax and tip; no drinks)

Family members have vetoed my usual inexpensive Chinese and Indian standbys. I'm aware of how restrictive this is. That's why I'm asking Chowhound for help! My top two choices, Northern Spy and Westville, are closed on Thanksgiving. But don't tell me the only option is McDonalds, because I've found a few places that might work:

6th Street Kitchen
Spring Street Natural
Cafe Mogador
L'Express Bouchon
Table 12
Alphabet Cafe

Any thoughts on any of these places, or suggestions for other inexpensive Thanksgiving options that are also vegan-friendly?
