Delicious carrot cake
Open for lunch and supper on Thanksgiving, Yardbird won’t be able to completely eliminate the holiday stress: Diners will still have to make the very difficult decision of whether to stick to delicious and tempting menu classics like lobster mac and cheese and American wagyu with harissa butter, or choose from exclusive Thanksgiving specials, all using farm-fresh ingredients and inspired by classic American cooking. The good news is that there is no wrong choice. Both the shrimp and grits and the turkey special will be a reason to be thankful this season. 2121 N. Pearl St., Ste. 170, runchickenrun.com
