Where to get your turkey on around town


Thanksgiving is a-comin’ and with each passing nanosecond, the anticipation is growing for the great American feast.

The Rich Life checked out some options available for getting your turkey on around town, whether it’s in advance, afterwards or on the big day. Here’s the turkey lowdown with all the fixings!

Don’t feel like cooking on the big day? Nobody will hold it against you, but you might consider ordering an entire “Fried Turkey Dinner” from the aforementioned Kim’s Louisiana Fried Turkey & Stuff. Kim and Phillip Mitchell’s local business not only has a strong presence at the Richmond Farmer’s Market at the Civic Center on Fridays, but also offers catering service as well. The Fried Turkey Dinner package comes with a fried turkey, a choice of two side dishes (collard greens, coleslaw, BBQ baked beans, Caribbean rice, bread pudding and dirty rice), rolls and dessert. The dinner feeds eight people and costs $200. Call 415-875-0786. Click here to order online.

Over at the ever-charming Hotel Mac, they’ll be serving up a traditional Thanksgiving dinner from 1-8 pm Thurs., Nov. 24. The Thanksgiving menu will start with a choice of a house salad or mushroom soup; an entrée choice of either turkey (white/dark/or choice of both meats), roast prime rib, or wild mushroom tamales all served with sides of mashed potatoes, yams, mixed vegetables and stuffing. For dessert, diners can select pecan or pumpkin pie, cheese cake, chocolate truffle marquis or three chocolate mousses. Adults $45, kids under 10 years old $25. Reservations: 510-233-0576, x0577. The Hotel Mac is located at 50 Washington Ave., Point Richmond. http://www.hotelmacrestaurant.com/

If a turkey sandwich is more your thing, Richmond’s got some great deli options to consider too. Little Louie’s Café & Deli, located at 49 Washington Ave. in Point Richmond, isn’t open on Thanksgiving, but has lots of turkey-related offerings for a before-or-after-Thanksgiving visit. Consider sampling “Tom’s Sandwich,” made with turkey, cranberry sauce and cream cheese on your choice of bread; the “Turbo Turkey Sandwich,” made with turkey, jalapeno and hot pepper jack cheese; the “Clubhouse,” with turkey, bacon and avocado on whole wheat bread; or come up with your own turkey deli combo. Call 510-235-3108 or visit http://littlelouies.com/.

Also on the Richmond deli front, Angelo’s Gourmet Delicatessen, at 12025 San Pablo Ave. in Richmond, has a “Turkey Cranberry Sandwich” on its menu, made with turkey, cranberry sauce, lettuce, tomato, pickles, onion and pepperoncini served on a French roll. Another good option is the “Turkey, Bacon & Avocado Sandwich” served on Dutch crunch bread. Angelo’s is closed Wed., Nov. 21 through Mon., Nov. 26, so it’s an option for before-or-after-turkey day.
