Restaurants Open Thanksgiving

Posted by Jason, Nov 13, 2004

This is the 2004 list. Restaurants Open Thanksgiving Day 2005.

I've received a few emails asking what restaurants are open Thanksgiving Day in the Washington, DC area. I know it's hard to believe, but I wont be eating out on Thanksgiving because no restaurant will be serving my famous challah stuffing. It's about the only thing I know how to cook, and damn it, I take pride in it! If I were going to eat out though, I would probably go to one of my picks below. The full list of restaurants open Thanksgiving day is available below. Oh, and do me a favor...Please call before you go, because I have been known to be wrong before ;-)

Thanks so much, Jason!

And hey, I think it's fine for you to stay in for one meal per year. Just dont make it a regular thing.

Jason

My pleasure.

The sad thing is, I am actually a half-way decent cook. I just like to have people cook for me more. :)

Megan

Hahah, I know the feeling. Everything tastes better when it's made by someone else, and most especially when it's not eaten at the kitchen table.


FYI for those looking for reservations-- Corduroy is booked; David Gregory seems to have lots of space available. I didn't check anywhere else.

Scott

This was really helpful..Thanks.
