Thanksgiving spread at JW Marriott Juhu

It is Thanksgiving, a day that is all about counting our blessings and reminding one another of the many reasons to be grateful. Although largely an American tradition, it is celebrated across the world for the universality of its message and, like every other celebration, it calls for a family get-together over a scrumptious spread. If you are in a mood to cook, we have some recipes - pumpkin soup, roast turkey and pudding (read them here). But, if you are in no mood to cook and would rather step out and indulge in a festive spread, here are five restaurants that have curated a special menu for the occasion:
