I know it's early, but time flies (and I love thanksgiving and the fact that summer will be over!)
Odds are family will be coming to town this year for thanksgiving - my first away from home and my moms amazing cooking - because, god willing, we'll have a 3 or 4 week old at that point and unable to comfortably travel. So people will come to us. We CANNOT host in our apartment (too small, no table space at this point) so I'm not looking for take out.
I'm looking for ideas or if others have had good experiences at DC restaurants. A buffet would be lovely but any place with a good traditional or twist on traditional thanksgiving (no Indian or Chinese, even though we love it). I've seen Art and Soul listed, but most of the web sites listing thanksgiving spots are outdated with many of the places closed.
So any insider info would be appreciated, especially if you've been to a place for turkey day and loved it. thanks!
