Our favorite Brooklyn restaurants for Thanksgiving dinner, because who put you in charge of the homemade stuffing anyway?
Staying local for the holiday? I’ll assume you want to avoid the throngs of tourists at the Macy’s Day Parade and focus on what truly matters this season: good food. Here’s a quick rundown of quality Brooklyn restaurants serving prix fixe Thanksgiving dinners. Most are about $75, include a three-course meal and incorporate key elements of a traditional Thanksgiving meal, like turkey, cranberry sauce, or squash. There’s Maison Premiere and Meadowsweet in Williamsburg, Palo Santo in Park Slope, Beasts & Bottles in Brooklyn Heights, and Buttermilk Channel in Carroll Gardens. If you’re entertaining and the thought of trying to figure out how to defrost a turkey is sending you into a cold panic, get it catered. Naturally Delicious is taking orders till Friday morning, November 22 and is donating 5% of proceeds to CAMBA to provide meals for those in need. Morgan’s Barbecue is also catering, and while the turkey is definitely an option, I hear their smoked brisket is one for the books. I recommend making reservations as soon as possible for all of these.
