Crossroads Kitchen

Beverly Grove

Ditch the potluck idea, grab your quarantine fam, and treat yourself to a fancy three-course meal at Crossroads! For the pre-show, dig into an autumn chopped salad decked out in apples, persimmons, candied pecans, and a flavorful vinaigrette. The main act showcases your choice of spiced lentil tempeh or scallopini with cherry cabernet sauce alongside mashed potatoes and gravy, stuffing (gluten-free option available), Brussels sprouts, and sweet potato biscuits. For the grand finale, sweeten things up with their pumpkin mousse cheesecake or cranberry sorbet. After reading the line-up, there’s no way you’re going back to that potluck plan! Crossroads is open for al fresco dining from 11am and 8pm on Thanksgiving Day. Email reservations@crossroadskitchen.com or call 323-782-9245 to secure your table.
