Avoiding Awkward Thanksgiving Convo & Nasty Mac & Cheese

It’s not that we don’t love our families but sometimes we just show up to Thanksgiving dinner just for the food, right? It can’t be just me.
Maybe you don’t feel like being the “host house” this year, with everyone chiming in with compliments on how juicy the turkey was but a not so willing response to “who’s helping with the dishes?” You can’t stand dealing with your aunt asking you 30 times “when are you finally going to get married?” or you just don’t have the patience to wait until 6 pm to finally eat dinner. It may just be that you don’t trust the mac & cheese that your boo’s mom is making.
Here are some places that you can get your turkey fix without all the extras (chaos, that is. There’s no slacking on the gravy!)
1 – The Crowne Plaza Baton Rouge will be seating every hour starting at 11 am and ending at 1pm. $28 for adults, seniors (65+) receive a discount at $22, kids (6-12) eat for $14 and kids under 6 years old your meal is complimentary. For reservations, call (225) 925-2244. Heads up, there are no coupons or discounts available and prices do not include taxes or gratuity.

2 BRQ is serving up the traditional Thanksgiving spread and of course their signature BBQ and seafood dishes from 11am-6pm. Click here to reserve a table. If you’re looking to try a cocktail, the Frose all Day there is phenomenal!

3 – How does sweet potato andouille bisque, roasted turkey and bourbon-glazed pecan sound? Tallulah, the Renaissance Hotel’s buffet will be open from 11pm-2pm. Adults eat for $25.00, kids under 10 can dine for $15 and kids under 4 receive complimentary meals with the purchase of 2 adult meals. You can call 388-5710 to book your reservation.

4 – Yes, I’ll have seconds! L’Auberge’s Bon Temps Buffet let’s the good times roll and the good food come through all day long (11am-10pm). For $29.95, you can enjoy some whole roasted turkey with all the dressings and even hit the slots if you’re feeling lucky. Tax and gratuity are not included.

5 – At Juban’s Creole Restaurant, choose from a la carte or three-course prix fixe for $32.50. You can start off with the gulf oysters with jalapeno cocktail sauce and mozzarella cheese or go straight for Hallelujah crab from 10:30am -3:00pm. Call 346-8422 to secure your seat.

6Galatoire’s wants to cook for you! You can pull up for a savory crepe of roasted duck or keep it classic with the roasted turkey breast and sweet potato puree. Maybe even try the gumbo! The bistro will be serving up Southern-style dishes from 11am- 3pm.
