Neiman’s Zodiac serves turkey holiday buffet daily

Hey, Bud! Is there anyplace with a Thanksgiving turkey buffet on the weekend? We won’t be here on Thanksgiving but still want to get together.

—Philip, Arlington

Yes — a great place. The Zodiac at the brightly decorated Neiman Marcus in downtown Dallas serves a complete holiday turkey lunch buffet for $45 daily from Nov. 27 through Jan. 4 and also at dinner Dec. 12 and 19. (It’s closed Thanksgiving Day, but open that Wednesday and the whole weekend.) Be sure to book reservations early.

—A dozen people who really like West Side Cafe

Sure, I love West Side Cafe as much as everybody, and the Sunday special is turkey and dressing. If you’ve never gone, it’s at 7950 Camp Bowie Blvd. West. Also, the Paris Coffee Shop has turkey on alternating Mondays. Last I checked the Dixie House Cafes have turkey on Thursdays.
