Thanksgiving Menus at Company American Bistro and Wolfgang Puck Restaurants]In town next week and want to celebrate Thanksgiving at a great restaurant? Well several fine dining establishments on The Strip have put together special menus especially for the holiday.

Both Company American Bistro at the Luxor (which is owned by Pure Management Group) and the Wolfgang Puck Fine Dining Group were kind enough to send over copies of the Thanksgiving menus they will have to offer diners on Thursday, November 27, 2008 and I have to say they sound yummy.
