Thanksgiving, while being a complicated holiday for many, has one thing most people look forward to: FOOD! If you're visiting and don't have a hookup for a homemade meal, or perhaps you just don't feel like doing all those dishes, we have a list of delicious restaurants in Portland serving some of the best Thanksgiving meals you'll ever have. Imagine... you get ready in your hotel room, head out to enjoy an absolutely stunning meal that you don't have to cook or clean up after, then get to crash back in your cozy room while being thankful for all the good in your life. Before you get to stuffing that turkey, though, be sure you...
If you feel like taking a little trip over the Willamette, we heard our pals at Brix Tavern are doing it up this Thanksgiving! Their prix-fixe 4-course menu is spectacular, including options like Herb-Roasted Local Tom Turkey and Fall Vegetable Wellington (cognac cream, anyone?), pies and pumpkin bread pudding for dessert, and a list of handcrafted cocktail that spans the entire menu. We are VERY interested in a tequila drink called Caramel Apple Pie, ourselves... Meals start at $49.95 per person.
Now, we're all about a nontraditional celebration, and what doesn't say Thanksgiving more than a creamy, dreamy bouillabaisse full of regional seafoods, a prawn cocktail piled high with the good stuff, and yeah, okay, there will even be a turkey dinner available if you're really craving the official mascot of the holiday. However you want it, Jake's Famous Crawfish has got it hot and ready for you. And they've been at it since 1892, so they know what's up. $38 per person. Make sure you reserve your table, though!
Urban Farmer Portland is offering a Thanksgiving Family-style menu the day after Thanksgiving, November 24 from 12 pm – 8pm. Priced at $78 8r adult, and $36 per child 12 and under. Start with Grilled Flatbread with Portland chèvre, roasted delicata squash, baby radish greens, butternut ranch and pumpkin seed pesto, then enjoy a perfectly roasted Honey and Thyme Turkey with confit leg and shitake mushroom gravy accompanied by a variety of sides. Save room for Saffron Pumpkin Pie with candied cranberry and spiced whipped cream.
Maybe Thanksgiving dinner isn't what you're looking for, exactly. Head out to Oregon's wine country instead, and enjoy complimentary cheese and charcuterie paired with a curated flight of library wines, rarely featured in the Alexana Tasting Room. $125 per person, waived with a $350 bottle purchase.
Eat your fill for Thanksgiving, give thanks, then unwind in the center of it all! Thanksgiving at Jupiter Hotel is unparalleled. All we need is YOU.
