Reuben’s, One & Only Cape Town
Cape Town hosts South Africa’s biggest beer festival from November 23 to 25, which makes the capital city a distinctly delightful Thanksgiving port of call. But before you head out to partake, chow down at Reuben’s at One & Only Cape Town for a Thanksgiving meal with South African flair. The set menu offers three options for each course, including dishes like tomato soup with an oxtail-and-Parmesan beignet or the caramelized-onion-and-Parmesan tart. For the main event, each offering features unexpected twists that elevate a traditional Thanksgiving dinner. For instance, Reuben’s turkey entrée is poached in thyme and served with confit thigh and a compote of cranberry and Granny Smith apple, pumpkin dauphinoise and café au lait. Rooms, from $615; Dock Rd., Victoria & Alfred Waterfront; 27-21/431-5888; capetown.oneandonlyresorts.com.
