It’s no question that Turkey Day is one of the best (and filling) holidays of the year but with the stress of mandated quarantine and COVID-19, we don’t blame you one bit if you want a little help or skip the cooking entirely this year. There are a number of restaurants open for the holidays, offering special feast of turkey and all the traditional sides. Many of those that will be open will be offering limited options, not their entire menu.
A word to the wise before you head out to any of these restaurants. Be sure to give them a call to double-check their holiday hours, as many are reservation only and may already be sold out.
Here are the restaurants that stay open on this special day to serve you a festive holiday menu:
