Thankgiving Buffet in North Bay (Marin, Sonoma)

CyndiN | Nov 23, 201002:31 PM

Looking for a buffet open on Thanksgiving. Good fresh food, local and organic a plus. Prefer a buffet because it's much easier with various food restrictions/allergies (I haven't yet found any fixed menu my daughter or I could eat). My husband and daughter would like turkey but other poultry is okay. I don't eat meat but would like seafood. But we wouldn't rule out a good vegetarian buffet and it doesn't have to be Thanksgiving themed.

Open to any cuisine. Traditionally we do sushi on holidays but anything's good. We normally go out on Christmas and birthdays but this year the Thanksgiving celebration we do with friends has been moved to Saturday.

We live in Petaluma and will be spending time with a sick friend in Novato. So anything in Marin or Southern Sonoma county is ideal but we're open to driving a bit further in any direction.

Really hoping to keep it under $30/adult (and not too much for the 5 year old). That's before taxes, tip, alcohol.

We used to go to Todai in Daly City (an hour+ away and quite a shlep) but they closed and the other locations are too far. We've been going to Gourmet Garden in Petaluma which used to be okay but recently seems to have gone downhill and they now refuse to make special order sushi, which is the only way my daughter gets to eat sushi since she's allergic to eggs and they insist on putting mayonnaise in them all (I know, ick...used to be a tiny bit with wasabi but now there's so much it makes you ill to eat more than a handful of pieces).

Thanks for your suggestions.
