On Thanksgiving Day (noon–6 p.m.), Zinfandel Grille is serving up a three-course prix-fixe takeout meal. You get lots of yummy choices: butternut soup or mixed greens salad for your first course; roast turkey breast, prime rib, grilled salmon, lasagna Bolognese or butternut squash ravioli for your entrée; and pumpkin pie, tiramisu or bread pudding for dessert. Kids can get a turkey plate or, if they’re really picky, corn dogs or chicken strips. The price is $46.95 per person for adults, $15.95 for kids. To order, call (916) 485-7100.
Molly Hawks and Michael Fagnoni, owners of Hawks in Granite Bay and Hawks Public House in midtown, really don’t want you to have to cook this Thanksgiving, so they’re offering a multitude of options. You can assemble your own feast from the Granite Bay restaurant; the a la carte menu includes a whole brined Mary’s free-range turkey ready for roasting, along with stuffing, maple roasted yams, creamy golden potato puree, Brussels sprouts with bacon, cranberry sauce, wild mushroom soup, wild rice and mushrooms, gravy and ready-to-pipe-and-bake gougeres. Prices range from $12–$31 for sides and appetizers depending on quantity (pints and quarts), $105–$150 for the turkey depending on size (14–20 pounds). Desserts include pumpkin pie, apple pie and vanilla gelato. The menu at Hawks Public House is a smaller version of its Granite Bay cousin’s, but in addition to turkey and a few sides it includes a ready-to-roast truffled Mary’s chicken ($50) and heat-and-eat slow-roasted short ribs ($75). And if that’s not enough choice for you, Hawks Provisions (the little takeout shop next to Hawks Public House) is offering Thanksgiving staples by the pint, including stuffing, Yukon Gold potato puree, Brussels sprouts with bacon, country gravy, mushroom soup and chicken stock. Really, why would you even dream of cooking? To order, call Hawks in Granite Bay at (916) 791-6200 or Hawks Public House & Provisions at (916) 588-4440.
