Thanksgiving lunch Houston

I'm currently living in Houston and get a visitor from Norway for Thanksgiving. As this is holiday tradition we have not experienced before we would like to treat ourselves to a great lunch.

If you have recommendations on where to eat, please let me know. I've trying to make up my mind based on the listing here:

Other/off the beaten track suggestions are also welcome. We would like to focus on food quality and nice ambiance if such exist.

Hi Pippi,

Try Branchwater Tavern for some great food, and a good Thanksgiving buffet menu:

thanksgiving-restaurants.com/Home_Page.html

I'd call them asap to make a reservation.

happy holidays!

Mockingbird Bistro has a pretty traditional Thanksgiving menu (with a few extras), and might provide a little nicer atmosphere than the other two, depending on your idea of what of atmosphere is. Again, reservations should be made ASAP if you choose this one.

Caltran--

My understanding is that the Superfeast is for the underprivileged families who can't afford a real meal, but I could be wrong. I know they are always looking for volunteers to help serve, but don't know how to put you in touch with the right people.

Thanks so much for your suggestions!

Ended up at the Mockingbird Bistro and had a great meal.

And what a lovely day this have been, so different from the rain and the wind in Norway.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Hi Pippi,

Sounds like a great day, so glad you all had a good dinner!

This time of year can be some of our best weather; today's sunny,low humidity,bit of a breeze day was amazing. So glad you all got to experience it!

Bit of weather change tomorrow, but looks like the rest of the week goes back to beautiful. Enjoy!
