Let's face it. A lot of people don't want to go through the hassle of cooking a special meal at home but also don't-want-to/can't-afford-to pay $30 a plate (not including booze or taxes or tip) for a Thanksgiving dinner out. In fact, let's give this portion of the population a name: my family.

As long as your family doesn't consist of traditionalists who can't stand the thought of trading rolls for naan, there are plenty of Ethnic restaurants that are open normal hours on Thanksgiving. Below is a list originally published in Pitch Forks yesterday along with two additions.

South Asian food:
Masala's [Overland Park]
Korma Sutra [Westport]
Ruchi [Overland Park]
Kabab & Curry [Lenexa]
Paradise India [Overland Park -- this year, we named Paradise India Best Indian Buffet]
New Cafe Tandoor [Midtown: Heads up shoppers! New Cafe Tandoor is doing a Black Friday buffet the day after Thanksgiving until 4 p.m.)


Eastern Asian Food:
New Peking Chinese Restaurant [Westport]
Pho 97 Restaurant [KCMO: Independence Avenue]
Matsu Japanese Restaurant [Westport]

Hopefully one of those places will fit your budget or schedule. Who knows, you might even see my family there.
