Fill up on Thanksgiving dinner at a number of Seattle restaurants.

ART Restaurant, 11:30am–9:30pm
Fresh mushroom soup, duck confit atop red wine risotto, and a tomato-horseradish laced prawn-and-crab cocktail shine among the starters. Follow up the turkey, pork tenderloin, venison chop, or root vegetable cassoulet with chef Kerry Sear’s seasonal sweets at the dessert bar. $85/adult, $35/child; call for reservations.

BluWater Bistro, 1pm–10pm
Choose from slow-roasted prime rib, turkey, or ham, preceded by a salad glazed cranberry and walnut vinaigrette salad and served with trimmings. Made-from-scratch pumpkin pie ends the three-part menu. $29/adult, $11 children 12 and under; call for reservations; Greenlake and Leschi locations only.

Plum Bistro, 1pm–5pm
Plum’s signature mac and yease subs for turkey, while smoked seitan roast, collard greens, cornbread stuffing, orange cranberry yam fries, and sweet potato pie replace the traditional trimmings at this vegan holiday spread. A gluten-free menu, complete with quinoa-stuffed sugar pumpkin pie and cheesecake, is also available. $35/adult; call for reservations.

Maxwell’s Restaurant, 11am–8pm
Chow down on turkey, prime rib, apple-cider grilled salmon, and customized omelets at the Renaissance Hotel’s holiday buffet. A mix of sides—oatmeal, breakfast breads, seasonal vegetables, honey-smoked bacon, waffles with berry toppings, and lobster bisque—round out the plate. Mini pumpkin, pecan, and apple pies, too. $39/adult, children 6–12 pay their age; children under 6 free; call for reservations.

Sazerac, noon–7pm
A buffet features artisan and hearts of romaine salads, grilled organic veggies, fingerling potatoes, cornbread dressing, and traditional ham and turkey. Sazerac’s trademark flair makes its way into buttermilk-maple mashed sweet potatoes and tri tip steak marinated in brown sugar and Aleppo chile. Follow up the meal with a trip to the dessert table, a comprehensive offering of brownies, bars, cakes, tarts, and cookies. $40/adult, $13/children 12 and under; call for reservations.

Trellis, noon–8pm
A three-course prix fixe feast promises winter squash or mushroom-foraged soup or several salads—beet, roasted pear, or bleu cheese—to start. For the mains: pan-roasted pheasant, vegetarian cassoulet, turkey, or pan-seared salmon, to name a few. Lemon-sage flan proves the wild card dessert, with the more traditional hazelnut cake and pumpkin and apple pies rounding out the offerings. $55/adult, $23 children 12 and under; call for reservations.

Waterfront Seafood Grill, 1pm–8pm
Give thanks for Seattle’s beautiful surrounds as you take in views of Elliott Bay and savor roasted turkey paired with corn bread and chorizo stuffing, green bean casserole dotted with mushroom and onion, brown sugar yams, and cranberry-orange relish. Individual desserts including apple crisp, pumpkin pie, and pecan tarts are available for separate purchase. $35/adult, $12/child; call for reservations.
