If you are feeling French this Thanksgiving, maybe you could give Verdigris, a charming French restaurant a chance. The restaurant serves a five-course dinner for the holiday so that you can come at pretty much any time. The servings are scheduled for 1 PM, 4 PM, and 7 PM.
Verdigris’s chef Johnny Nunn will treat you to a classic turkey dinner elevated in a typical French manner: apparently, Dungeness crab with almonds, grapefruit, and caviar taste perfectly when paired with a properly roasted turkey breast! Twice-baked sweet potatoes are also a thing at this place, as is a range of assorted desserts.
