Dining Out Options on Thanksgiving


The Norman Rockwell vision of Thanksgiving at home might not be for everyone, which is why a good number of Boston restaurants offer special holiday menus for those looking to dine out for the day. Here’s a look at some of the options for leaving the cooking to someone else:

  • The Beehive: The South End eatery and bar features live music, which will be on tap throughout the day, including a dinner jazz set.
  • Davio’s: One of Boston’s premier steak houses offers a $35 Thanksgiving plate including oven-roasted Vermont free-range organic turkey, challah bread herbed stuffing, and a dessert menu.
  • Eastern Standard: The swanky, Kenmore Square hangout will have a prix-fixe menu for $50 per person, as well as breakfast beginning at 7 a.m.
  • L’Espalier: From 1:30-8 p.m., this popular Back Bay locale will offer an $85 prix-fixe menu with plenty of options.
  • Rialto: The Cambridge restaurant, regarded as one of the area’s finest Italian hotspots, is hosting Thanksgiving with a twist on tradition, including steamed lobster, oyster chowder, and pumpkin fritters. The cost is $70 adults, $35 children.
  • Sandrine’s: This inviting French restaurant in Harvard Square offers a Thanksgiving menu from 1-8 p.m.
  • Sel de la Terre: Both the Back Bay and Waterfront locations will have a prix-fixe, $58 menu for the holiday.
