Fooditka + Bear Thanksgiving Deal

This post is participating in the Astoria Blog Carnival, hosted by We Heart Astoria.

With Thanksgiving this week, lots of restaurants in the nabe are running some fun specials, while others are closing early.  Luckily for us, the newly opened
Bear Restaurant
will be open all night and featuring a sweet prix-fixe feast to boot.  Besides the menu sounding absolutely scrumptious, I also want to spread the news of a great deal if you mention my site.  Here goes...if you reserve your spot and mention "Fooditka," you'll get a complimentary glass of wine.

Now feast your eyes on this menu:
