Thanksgiving Gourmet

Vegan restaurants across the country get into the holiday spirit for Thanksgiving.

For some, the challenge of preparing a large, hearty holiday meal may seem too overwhelming. Thankfully, there are many vegan-friendly gourmet restaurants up to the task. Upscale New York eatery Candle 79—voted VN Restaurant of the Year—transformed its menu to appeal to holiday palettes, with Chef Angel serving seasonal dishes such as mache and endive salad with acorn squash, wild rice, Jerusalem artichokes, grilled pears, toasted pecans, and cranberry dressing. Members of the Buckeye State should visit The Vegiterranean, which is serving a special Thanksgiving dinner, complete with Gardein Veggie Stuffed Turkey Roast, on select days in November. West Coast residents, give thanks gourmet style with Millennium Restaraunt's annual Thanksgiving supper. Make sure to save room for the maple-pecan sweet-potato pie!
