As far as Thanksgiving dinner options go, Cleverley recommends the following guidelines for restaurants:
All you can eat buffets will range from $20 to $77 per person. Cleverley recommends what she calls the Top Turkey, which will be found at the Four Seasons Hotel and will cost$77 per person.
Prix-Fixe menus, which feature multi-course dinners, will range from $18 to $55 per person. Cleverley recommends Smith & Wollensky where a $49 per person dinner will be served, which she refers to as the Tasty Turkey.
Take out Thanksgiving dinners, which Cleverley calls Traveling Turkey should cost approximately $10 per person, such as Pappas BBQ.
Of course, if you prepare a meal at home, it should end up costing $5 per person, but the best value is to eat at someone else’s house … it’s free!
