Avocado Grill

This Datura Street staple will curate a delectable holiday feast for diners to enjoy in a socially distanced setting at the restaurant or take to go. Chef-owner Julien Gremaud created a three-course menu (with vegetarian and vegan-friendly options) featuring delights like curried cauliflower, warm pumpkin soup, and stuffed zucchini blossoms to start. For the main event, select from a traditional Thanksgiving dinner complete with mashed potatoes, stuffing, green beans, and cranberry sauce, or more inventive fare like grilled hangar steak or vegetable risotto. For a slice of autumnal flavor, dig into a fresh pecan pie for dessert. Dinner costs $65 for two, $130 for four, and $260 for eight. Dine-in reservations are encouraged. Call 561-623-0822 to reserve a table or Thanksgiving meal to go.

III Forks Bread Pudding

III Forks Steakhouse

The Palm Beach Gardens steak house’s executive chef, Tommy Nevill, and his dedicated team have been hard at work perfecting the resto’s three-course Thanksgiving spread, and the results are scrumptious. Diners can start off with a III Forks salad with Granny Smith apples, blue cheese, and toasted pecans or the savory tenderloin tomato soup, made from roasted plum tomatoes and sweet basil slowly simmered in tenderloin stock. Nevill’s elevated take on the Thanksgiving turkey is spice-rubbed and accompanied by “Grandma’s” gravy, cranberry-orange relish, sausage sage cornbread dressing, creamed potatoes, maple-glazed yams, and roasted fall vegetables. For diners looking for a nontraditional main, the kitchen will cook up a roasted Midwest beef tenderloin or a Vermont maple-glazed Atlantic salmon. Satisfy a holiday sweet tooth with pumpkin pie, Kentucky bourbon chocolate pecan pie, or Maker’s Mark pecan bread pudding. Call 561-630-3660 or visit the website to reserve a table.
