5 Boston Restaurants Serving a Stress-free Thanksgiving Dinner

Thanksgiving is coming, and with that is a certain dread that comes from the preparation. Slaving over a hot stove preparing dish after dish is rewarding enough if you have a full family or “Friendsgiving” to prepare for, but if it’s a smaller circle it might just not be worth it. Not to worry, as there are these wonderful restaurants ready to serve you on Thanksgiving, whether you’re looking for the traditional repast or something a little more unconventional.

The Frogmore

This Lowcountry Restaurant will be serving up half and whole turkeys with your choice of apple or pumpkin pie. They serve some of the old favorites of Thanksgiving cuisine like green bean casserole along with Southern options to give your Thanksgiving a new twist. Located at 365 Centre st. Jamaica Plain find more information atthefrogmore.com.

La Voile

Tired of Turkey and looking for something a little different? How about Cornish game hen? That’s what replaces the friendly gobbler at this French brasserie located on 261 Newbury St. in Boston. This new bird doesn’t go the meal alone, it’s served with thyme butter, potato mousseline, spinach, chanterelles, and cranberry sauce. You even get French cheese puffs instead of French rolls!



Far from only serving beef, this restaurant offers up a full traditional Thanksgiving dinner with turkey thigh and leg, stuffing and cranberry sauce. But maybe your palette wants to mix its November up with some East Coast oysters of Maine lobster? Moo…will give the traditionalists what they want and the people looking for something new the answer. Located at 15 Beacon st. Boston.


Restaurant Dante

Located at 40 Edwin H. Land Blvd, Cambridge, this restaurant offers a sustainable option for Thanksgiving. Want your turkey to have been locally sourced? You got it! Free range? No problem! Don’t want a turkey but want the deliciousness? Covered! The vegetarian is a chestnut stuffing with potato puree, sweet potato fries, and maple Brussel sprouts. If the more typical Thanksgiving isn’t your jam, then try the Long Island roast duck with sour cherries. The best part is you get a slice each of four pies, so you don’t have to choose.


Top of the Hub

At 800 Boylston St.  you can enjoy Thanksgiving with the view from the top of the Prudential Center. Four courses will tantalize your taste buds with beef brisket, lemon-sole, and coffee-rubbed beef tenderloin. Your meal comes with a pass to the skywalk observatory, so you can take a walk and digest your food while enjoying the view.
