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.
