Vesta's Special Thanksgiving Menu

Mmmmm Thanksgiving...it's just around the corner.  Many Astorian staples are releasing special menus for this yearly feast and here I'll highlight one of my favorites, Vesta.

Focusing on farm-to-table dining and using fresh, organic, local ingredients, they've devised a special Thanksgiving menu, which not only sounds delicious, it's affordable too.
