Dining Joint


Not everyone enjoys hosting and cooking a Thanksgiving dinner at home. Sure, preparing and cooking a nice Thanksgiving meal at home fills your home with a pleasing aroma, one that strikes up memories of family times - a slowly cooking turkey with stuffing, sweet yams, honey-baked ham, roast beef, and other goodies. Then there's the downside - it's a lot of laboring in the kitchen, which typically involves food preparation and, of course, the dreaded job of washing dishes. Luckily, you can build lasting memories and avoid the downside by heading out to any of these five restaurants in San Diego for a nice Thanksgiving dinner - all without having to worry about turning on the oven and having to wash the dishes afterwards. Dining Joint is here to help you gobble it up and give thanks, no matter where you live in San Diego. Tip: Reservations recommended at all 5 dining joints.

North - Bellamy's Restaurant and Wine Bar - Escondido

Enjoy a 3-three course, Thanksgiving harvest meal at this French-influenced, California Modern Cuisine, 5-Star restaurant in Escondido. Start with an entree such as a Slow-Roasted Pumpkin Soup or Foie Gras Torchon. Six main course options include favorites such as a Slow-Roasted Local Turkey featuring yam mousseline,  stuffing, haricot vert, toasted almonds and sage gravy and Classic Honey Glazed Bone-In Ham with caramelized pineapple, butternut squash puree and creamy bacon potatoes. Vegetarians can take part in the feast ordering the Vegetarian Fettuccine with braised turnip-carrot, cipollini onions and celery root. For dessert, try the Lemon & Orange Blossom Cheesecake or Traditional Pumpkin Pie with Vanilla sauce. Bellamy's Restaurant and Wine Bar offers a truly fine-dining experience you are not soon to forget!

South - Seasons 52 San Diego - Seaport District

Enjoy a Thanksgiving feast with all the trimmings at the Farm-to-Table Seasons 52 San Diego restaurant in the Seaport District. A straight-from-the-farm Plainville Farms Roasted Turkey with Savory Pan Gravy meal includes Traditional Herb Stuffing, Yukon Gold Mashed Potatoes, Maple Glazed Butternut Squash, French Green Beans and Housemade Cranberry Relish. For dessert, delight your taste buds with each savory bite of the Pumpkin Pie Mini Indulgence. Take a walk around the picturesque Seaport District afterwards and burn off those calories!

Center - The Butcher Shop - Kearny Mesa

This local favorite offers a Traditional Thanksgiving Day Buffet that has something for everyone. Pick and choose your entrees featuring favorites such as Oven-Roasted Turkey, Roasts Prime Rib of Beef, Baked Ham with Apple Raisin Sauce, Roast Leg of Lamb with Mint Jelly Sauce, Cabernet-Braised Short Ribs, or Baked Blackened Salmon with Sweet Pickled Tomatillo Vinaigrette. Can't make up your mind? It's a Buffet, so feel free to try all the main course entrees! Other Buffet options include a Pasta station, Salads, and Traditional Thanksgiving favorites such as Baked Glazed Yams, Sage Stuffing, and Yukon Gold Mashed Potatoes. Make sure to save room for dessert, as there are many choices for any sweet tooth, including Pumpkin pie, a variety of Cheesecakes, Pecan Pies and a Chocolate Fountain with Strawberry and other accompaniments.

East - BO beau kitchen + garden - La Mesa

Located in the Village of La Mesa, the Bohemian Chic meets Industrial Elegance cool of BO beau kitchen + garden is the perfect place for those looking to avoid cooking a Thanksgiving meal. Start the three-course meal with the slurp-worthy Cinderella Pumpkin soup with Cinnamon Chantilly. The main course meal options include a delectable Rosemary Roasted Turkey with Maple Glazed Sweet Potato, Cranberry Sauce, Gravy, Wilted Kale, and Cornbread stuffing that pleases the taste buds with every bite. Vegetarians can take part ordering the Spaghetti and Acorn Squash meal with Toasted Hazelnuts, Haricots Verts, and Crimini Mushrooms topped with Parmesan and White Balsamic Vinaigrette.

West- Fat Fish Cantina Grill - Pacific Beach

For those of us on a budget, you can still find a nice Thanksgiving meal at Fat Fish Cantina Grill that is leaps and bounds above anything you'll find at Coco's. In fact, for under $20, you can indulge in the savory, culinary flavor of an Achiote glazed turkey with poblano stuffing, hand whipped pork belly, mashed potatoes, prickly pear cranberry compote & grilled cotija corn. Feel free to hit up the beach or one of the many bars in Pacific Beach afterwards.
