Order a slice of pecan pie from benjy's on Washington this Thanksgiving.
benjy's on Washington
5922 Washington, 713-868-1131

The benjy's in Rice Village will be closed on Thanksgiving, but the Washington location will serve a three-course meal from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. for $38 per person. Start the meal with an early winter salad (persimmons, bibb lettuce and blue cheese) or hazelnut soup. Choose from chamomile-brined turkey breast with house-made cranberry sauce, vegetarian tamales with corn, raisins and pecans, honey-roasted pork chop or pan-seared local catch for the main entrée - each plate is served with butter-whipped potatoes and brown gravy, green bean casserole and challah dressing with chestnuts. Benjy's on Washington will also serve a pumpkin trifle, pecan pie and mom's chocolate cake for dessert.

Monarch Bistro at Hotel Zaza
5701 Main, 713-527-1800

For $55 per person, the Monarch Bistro inside Hotel Zaza will serve a three-course menu with sophisticated takes on Thanksgiving classics. Choose from spicy cold boiled shrimp with a cranberry chipotle remoulade, wild mushroom and truffle cream crepe, and a mixed-greens salad with roasted pumpkin, pomegranate, goat cheese, candied pecans and pumpkin seed vinaigrette. Second-course options include pumpkin ravioli, duck en mole rojo, market fish and Cajun-spiced turkey breast roulade with all the fixings. Enjoy pumpkin cheesecake with toasted pecans and caramel sauce, or caramel panna cotta for dessert.

Bistro des Amis
2347 University Blvd, 713-349-8441

Bistro des Amis will have two seatings on Thanksgiving Day, one at 12 p.m. and the other at 2:30 p.m. Start the meal with either a soup of the season or salad of the season, then enjoy turkey, ham, stuffing, mashed potatoes, homemade cranberry sauce, green bean casserole and sweet potatoes (AKA all the fixings). Top it all off with a choice of pumpkin or pecan pie. Each dinner costs $48, and a meal for children 10 and under costs $12.

Does anyone know of a place near Katy (yes, I feel sorry for myself as well) that has a special Thanksgiving menu? It's unbelievably frustrating to live in the Land of Chain Restaurants. Thanks in advance for any recommendations. Anything west of Beltway 8 would be awesome.

I wonder if Haven will be offering a Thanksgiving meal again this year. We went last year, and it was excellent.
