For out of town visitors or locals who don’t feel like cooking all day in the kitchen, we’ve created a short list of restaurants with some nice deals for Thanksgiving.  In addition to the special prix-fixe menus, all restaurants are also offering their regular menu. We have omitted the children’s menu price although most are also offering reduced prices for children.  Restaurants tend to fill up quickly for Thanksgiving, so make your reservations ASAP. Here is what we are recommending in Palm Beach and West Palm Beach (sorted by price from low to high):
