For those who arrive early, the first challenge of a Thanksgiving weekend tournament is finding a restaurant open for dinner.  It's a safe bet to say Pietro's in Saint Louis boasted the highest average chess rating among its diners last night, with five GMs, a WIM, and an NM at one table.  While they may all have high ratings in common, they have very different tastes in food--everyone ordered something different, and only one opted for a traditional Thanksgiving meal.  Can you match the player with their Thanksgiving meal?
