Screw Turkey: Nine Alternatives to the Traditional Thanksgiving Feast

With R&G Lounge's crab, you won't miss the cranberry sauce.

A quick search of SFoodie's fellow blogs will find you lists of the bistros and American-style restaurants serving turkey and trimmings. But not everyone wants to shell out for the traditional Thanksgiving meal at a restaurant. SFoodie can think of a number of reasons why:

A. You hate Thanksgiving and all it stands for.
B. You just hate turkey.
C. You're orphaned this year and don't want to wallow in someone else's recreation of the holiday.
D. You're broke.

Or E., you've just forgotten about it, like the guy who answered the phone at the O'Farrell Naan 'n' Curry this morning. When we asked him whether the restaurant was open on Thursday, he responded, “Sure. What's Thursday?”

We told him, and he whooped. “Good thing I'm off!” he said, then quickly added, “But the restaurant's open.”

In fact, SFoodie called all the non-Western restaurants in the critic's picks section of the SF Weekly restaurant guide to see who was open on Thanksgiving Day.
