Thanksgiving is a favorite holiday to some. They look forward to the feast and family gathering all year long, but one thing they could do without is the mass of dirty hand-wash only China dishes afterwards! Even a paper plate substitution does not discourage the post food-frenzy mess. Don’t worry about ANY of these inconveniences this year; make a reservation for Thanksgiving brunch, lunch or dinner!
