    Group Therapy at Hotel ZaZa

    Looking for a Thanksgiving meal as memorable as it is delicious? Reserve yourself a feast at the smart and snazzy Hotel ZaZa right in the heart of Downtown Austin, where the talented kitchen of Group Therapy will treat you very well indeed, fête-ing: you with the likes of a surf-n-turf crostini duo, sweet corn and poblano soup, and a Texas apple salad before you even get to the mains. And those mains? Orange Butter Scallop, with cauliflower pilaf and chili-rubbed baby carrots, is just one of the choices. (They also have the classic turkey option, natch.) You can à la carte everything here, of course, but we are so tempted by that order-the-whole-menu deal.
