15 days until Thanksgiving

Since posting this first batch of restaurants open for Thanksgiving, I've found a few more. I just discovered a wrinkle -- a wrinkle in time!!

A Thanksgiving buffet with all the trimmings at the Rusty Scupper is $39.95 and $16.95 for children. Information is here. Reservations are required. [A reader emailed me with a complaint about the 90-minute time limit the Rusty Scupper is imposing on its Thanksgiving day guests. Is that the norm -- I'll try to find out.]

Truffles at the Belvedere is serving a Thanksgiving buffet, from 1 to 5 p.m., in the Charles Ballroom featuring traditional Thanksgiving food and Chesapeake favorites like steamed shrimp with onions and potatoes. The cost is $28.95 for adults, $25.95 for military and seniors, and $14.95 for children ages 6 to 12. There is more information here.


Kali's Court in Fells Point will be offering a $49.95 fixed-price menu including both traditional Thanksgiving favorites and the restaurant's customary Mediterranean specialties. There are more details here.

The Prime Rib will be serving a turkey dinner with all the trimmings as well as its regular menu beginning at 1 p.m.


At Charleston, Cindy Wolf will present a $74 fixed-price "All-American menu" of Thanksgiving favorites, complemented by family-style sides, from 3 to 7 p.m.

There are three Thanksgiving day options at the Inner Harbor's Hyatt Regency Baltimore -- a $39.95 per person jazz brunch from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., a $19.95 dinner buffet from 5 to 10 p.m., and a carry-out option for groups of four to six. For more Thanksgiving Day options at the Hyatt, call 410-528-1234, press 1, and ask for the Thanksgiving Day reservations center.
