3 Best: Prix Fixe Thanksgiving Dinners

If you don't want to be chained to the oven all Turkey day, we don't blame you. With all the stuffing and basting and baking and whipping, who wouldn't rather toss in the towel and hit up one of L.A.'s yummiest eateries offering up Thanksgiving feasts to rival your grandmother's? So, we've gone ahead and rounded up a cornucopia of the SoCal restaurants that are offering can't-beat-'em Prix Fixe menus—and at under $50, the prices and the food will have you saying "Amen."
1. Bottega Louie:
Known for its ridiculously delicious pizza and neo-classical vaulted ceilings, Bottega Louie is serving a traditional three-course prix-fixe menu with choice of free-range turkey, pineapple ham, or grilled Alaskan salmon as the main course. And you can choose from apple or pumpkin pie for dessert—a la mode of course. This is a perfect fete for someone looking for the classics at only $40 per person.
Bottega Louie, 700 South Grand Avenue (at 7th Street); 213-802-1470.
2. Fraiche:
The contemporary French Bistro is giving Thanksgiving a Gallic makeover. Wood-fired mushroom salad or chestnut soup, followed by roasted turkey, seared duck breast or flatiron steak as the main will induce even the most sophisticated palette with a food coma. $45 per person.
Fraiche, 312 Wilshire Boulevard (at Third Street); 310-451-7482.
3. The Bridge at the Roosevelt:
For a hipper take on tradition, gorge on chestnut agnolotti with crispy sage or squab-roasted root vegetables, foie gras remoulade with huckleberry jus, and chocolate cake with salted caramel in the intimate space high above the famed Roosevelt pool. $49 per person.
The Bridge at the Roosevelt, 7000 Hollywood Boulevard (at North Orange Drive); 323-466-7000.
