Copy Link
300 S Maple Rd
Ann Arbor, MI 48103
(734) 929-9200
Visit Website
The Quarter Bistro and Tavern’s typically Cajun-inspired menu is going a bit more mainstream for Thanksgiving. Autumn-appropriate appetizers, such as a mushroom tart with goat cheese and puff pastry, give way to an entrée choice of turkey with traditional sides, duck with butternut squash risotto and dried cherries, or butternut squash ravioli in a burnt butter cider sauce. Apple pie a la mode and pumpkin cheesecake round out dessert. Prices a la carte.

3050 Jackson Ave
Ann Arbor, MI 48103
