Giving Thanks for Good Food

This Thanksgiving, not everyone will be sitting down at the dining room table to eat turkey and all the "fixins." More people — about ten percent nationally — are going out instead. Many are eating at restaurants that offer creative, high-end meals for diners looking to give thanks in a non-traditional way.

In Boston, 25 restaurants registered with the Greater Boston Convention and Visitors Bureau are staying open this Thanksgiving. That's compared with 20 last year.

To get a taste of what one local restaurant will be serving tomorrow, WBUR's Bob Oakes visited Rialto in Cambridge. There, he met with chef and owner Jody Adams, and Nancy Civetta, who does marketing for culinary and hospitality industries in the Boston area.

This report was produced by WBUR's Sarah Bush with help from Cynthia McMurry. WBUR's Ken George and Margaret Evans created the web material.
