    A Rooftop Thanksgiving at Nido

    Dine in style on Thanksgiving day at Austin’s newest rooftop restaurant, Nido at The Loren Hotel. The fine and fancy place is offering a seated four-course meal in the main dining room, with the bar area and patio reserved for walk-in guests (and anyone looking to just grab a drink). Mmmm, look at this bounty: chestnut soup, a fall salad, Heritage turkey with stuffing and honey-roasted cranberries, with classic family-style sides served throughout – and a pumpkin tart to finish. You can add wine pairings for extra; but, regardless, you'll be greeted with a complimentary glass of bubbles on arrival. Call for reservations!
    $85 ($35, ages 5-12).

    Farmhouse Thanksgiving

    Sure, we enjoy the deliveries of Farmhouse all year long, but it's during these winter holidays that our palates rediscover how they really shine. From pasture-raised Texas birds to local bakeries' freshly baked pies, from garlic mashed potatoes to braised collard greens, from fresh cranberry sauce to – oh, hell, there's so much beyond that turkey brine kit they've prepared for the more adventurous home cooks. And it's all locally sourced goodness worth gobbling about.
