5 Extravagant Holiday Meals Out on the Town


Sun Dial Restaurant, Bar & View

For breathtaking 360-degree views of downtown Atlanta on Thanksgiving day, there's only one choice -- the Sun Dial Restaurant, Bar & View. After an 85-second ride up 73 floors in one of the signature exterior glass elevators, you'll dine in a rotating restaurant that offers a sweeping view of the entire city, with a full rotation completed every 30 minutes. It's also the tallest hotel in the Western Hemisphere at 723 feet (220 meters) [source: Sun Dial]. The Thanksgiving prix fixe menu is a bargain at $59, or $85 if you want to partake in the wine pairings. After a soup starter, look forward to caviar and a duck confit appetizer next. For your entrée, you can choose between prime rib with mashed potatoes and Brussels sprouts, or the more traditional roasted herb turkey with Southern cornbread stuffing. A selection of pumpkin-based desserts completes your dining experience.
