Default Any Ed restaurants with a homestyle turkey dinner option for American Thanksgiving?

I did some googling but nothing came up.
I am looking for a restaurant anywhere in Edmonton that serves up a nice homestyle roast turkey dinner for this Thursday, Nov 26, 2009, to take some friends to and celebrate American Thanksgiving as some of them are away from home. I would like a restaurant with a nice atmosphere or a bit fancy, not a diner.
Does anyone have any suggestions or know of any restaurants offering that option this Thursday?
Thank you so much!

Teddy's restaurant on 114 Street & Jasper Avenue make a good turkey dinner. It is one of their menu items available everyday and they do a good job at it.

Top_Dawg suggests that you order it ' easy on the gravy ' or with gravy on the side because depending on who's cooking it can come smothered with too much gravy.


God bless America !

Cheers !

i would call some of the hotels such as the mac or sutton place whose dining rooms may be catering to american guests to see if they could accommodate you as well, particularly as most of them are already in the christmas party season and preparing and serving lots of traditional turkey.

and even if not "on the menu" most better restaurants will consider a "special request" with a bit of notice although i'm not sure if 3 days is enough - you might call some of them including jessie at the blue pear (c2e plug) for some specific feedback in that area...

Default Thank you! - Teddy's it is.

Thanks very much!

I called Sutton Place and Fairmont hotels and neither of their restaurants are offering a turkey dinner for American Thanksgiving.
Took a look at the Teddy's website (www.teddys.ca) and their dinner menu and that turkey dinner with all the fixings is exactly what we are looking for, so that is where we will go.

Thanks again!

Blue Plate Diner(north of jasper and 104st) also have 'family dinning' specials which often have turkey etc. You could try to contact them as well to see if they can put that on the menu for you for it is a step up in experience and atmosphere.

A sign outside Four Points Sheraton at 75st. and Argyll Road is offering deep fried turkey and NFL football on American Thanksgiving.

I did not want to start a new turkey thread so I'll hijack this one.
Does anyone know where one can buy a fully cooked turkey with dressing for Christmas. Does not matter if it has been cooked then frozen. As long as it tastes good.

To Top_Dawg's recollection Safeway does this closer to Christmas.

You just order in advance and then pick it up.

Call and ask if Sunterra Market offers a Turkey kit. Also in the past, The Westin and Sutton Place offered turkey dinner with all the trimmings.

https://suttonplacehotelcompany.word...om/tag/turkey/

The above link was from 2014.
$375 for a 18 lb. turkey dinner?? Just wondering why you need to buy a pre-prepared turkey dinner?

Thanks for the link North Guy.

The turkey kit doesn't have a listed price.

But Top_Dawg read the comments and one commenter posted that it was selling on the West Coast for 75 buck.

Sounds pretty reasonable.
