Best Turkey Dining-Out Spots in San Francisco

One week to Thanksgiving Day 2017 in the city by the bay, and if you’re finding your kitchen just too small for feast-making or don’t feel like all that feast-making, then be thankful there are so many fine restaurants offering so many different interpretations on the turkey celebration meal.

To help us navigate all the possibilities, sf.eater.com has put together an interactive SF city map of 15 eateries they feel are offering this year’s supreme turkey dining. This map is a culinary range so don’t expect all these restaurants to carry the roasted bird, stuffing and ultra rich gravy. Some, for example, are going to serve you sushi, but it will be Michelin-starred sushi.

Make reservations now, of course.

Here’s a peak at the gobble gobble offerings:

  • 1300 on Fillmore: 3 seatings for the day, each with a 3-course feast that includes buttermilk fried quail, butternut squash risotto, not too mention the perfect oven-roasted turkey.
  • Balboa Café: Menu includes kobacha squash soup, pumpkin risotto, New York Steak, and turkey dressed with Autumn herb stuffing.
  • Brenda’s French Soul Food: a Tenderloin morning-to-lunch spot serving up deep fried turkey and pumpkin pie pancakes with gingersnap streusel. Umm.
