My vote goes to Eat Boutique - that smoked turkey looks pretty amazing

I vote for The Barn. For me, that's what Thanksgiving is all about - food and family and friends. What a beautiful setting.

Ahhh, such a dream to do this. I love that you planned this outing and celebrated together in such a beautiful and intimate way. What better way to give thanks. My vote goes to AntoniaJames

Antonia James! Very special.

This is NOT easy--they're all terrific! While Eatboutique is gorgeous and "magazine ready", I love The Barn in black & white and the story the photos tell. Voting for csheago.

Eatboutique, purely on the strength of that smoked turkey! But all the contestants are great.

csheago - beautiful photos!

my vote is for gerriH: love the close ups of the food. and i appreciate the vegetarian gravy. can you post the recipe?

They are all so great! But I'm going with Antonia James. At least partly because I live at the base of Mt Tam that she talks about and it made me want to spend Thanksgiving the way she did. In a simple way in nature, feeling thankful. Really nice.

What a great selection. Tough choice between AntoniaJames and eatboutique but I'm going with eatboutique.

ah, a rather difficult choice- too much slideshow loveliness going around. i vote for AntoniaJames, as her story and photos of the surroundings captured my fancy. what an utterly beautiful way to spend Thanksgiving.

"Eat boutique"
Love the little story.
You can feel the passion of cooking, and having people, the display look's great.
It' s the kind of table i would love to seat around...
