Holiday specials: Thanksgiving dinner at The C Restaurant + Bar

If you’re looking to give the oven a break this year and take your Thanksgiving feast on the road for a dinner out, consider checking out The C Restaurant + Bar at the InterContinental’s Clement Hotel on Cannery Row.

The three-course menu includes an appetizer, entree and dessert for $48 per person. (Thanksgiving dinner is also available for children 12 and under for $19.50 per person.) The C is holding two seatings: 12 PM to 3 PM and 5 PM to 9 PM. Call 831-375-4800 for reservations.

This year, I’m staying in for Thanksgiving, but last year, I had a delightful dinner at The C. Their kitchen whips up some delicious meals any time of the year, and you can’t beat the view.

Take a peek at the full menu below the fold . . .
