Special Thanksgiving-Eve Edition: Tables Available for Small Plates

It's the night before Thanksgiving. You don't want to cook, but you don't want an oversize meal weighing you down, either. The solution? Small plates. Welcome to this special edition of Two for Eight: We just asked ten restaurants the best time they can squeeze a couple in for dinner; you need only make your chosen reservation. (As always, we make the calls but don't guarantee the results.)
