Deep Fork has your Turkey Day covered for lunch and/or dinner. There will be a traditional Thanksgiving menu, complete with turkey and stuffing, as well as staple items off the regular menu.

3701 N. Youngs
First things first: Make a reservation. The 1:30 p.m. slot is already booked. But that leaves you a few other times to get in on the cranberry orange relish, green bean casserole, oven-baked chicken, turkey and stuffing extravaganza. The dessert table will be full of traditional Thanksgiving treats, as well as some of Ingrid’s favorites.
Pho Lien Hoa
901 N.W. 23rd
There’s a chance the weather might be cooler this year for Turkey Day. If that’s the case, a big bowl of pho is one of the best ways to warm up the insides to match the warmness of the holiday season. Traditionally made pho, a full belly and no clean-up is an excellent way to spend any day.
Gopuram Taste of India
4559 N.W. 23rd
If you’re ready to splurge, we can’t think of a better meal than an Indian feast. From the kormas and the curries to the masalas and the naan, you’re sure to leave with a full belly. There will be turkey, too, as well as some Indian-inspired turkey dishes.
Park Avenue Grill
1 Park Ave.
