Not everyone is in agreement as to what dishes make a great Thanksgiving dinner. We dug around and asked some of our favorite chefs what their Thanksgiving dealbreakers were -- which dishes must be served, which rules could not be broken -- and here's what they told us.
Though not the typical Thanksgiving tribute we would have expected, we applaud Jose Andrés' op-ed to enlighten us on what cooking fuel and clean stoves really means for the developing world. (Bet those a**holes who bought a $35,000 Thanksgiving dinner might feel a little foolish now.)

Though the laws of restaurant physics state that a critic’s review can mean the life or death of a restaurant, sometimes those laws are broken. Sometimes a place remains open due to good service, rich clientele, or witch magic (we’re positive Bandolero exists because of Santería rituals). Sometimes sheer trendiness, celebrity love, and the perceived value that results can make a restaurant succeed. Hell, we’ll even admit to making a reservation now and then based on nothing but a restaurant’s recent buzz. Here, We’ve picked six restaurants that have notedly defied the odds, and the critics. What do they have that everyone else doesn’t? Probably money, a celebrity restaurateur, a former location that is beloved (or Santería).
