If you're looking ahead to Thanksgiving, Veranda on Highland will be offering a special Thanksgiving menu from 11 a.m.-3 p.m.; for $25 you choose one each from a special selection of appetizers, entrees and desserts. If it were me, I'd start out with the turtle soup (or maybe the smoked rabbit and brased greens gumbo), then have a roasted turkey with andouille country dressing (or oyster dressing); and finish up with praline cheesecake, or maybe pumpkin pie with egg nog anglaise.
