Why slave in the kitchen tending to a turkey that will surely burn? Or why endure your great aunt’s conservative antics around the dinner table? Instead, eat out on Thanksgiving and gorge on scrumptious dishes, which range from international flair to homestyle cooking. Tempted? Read on for our guide to DC’s best spots for Thanksgiving dinner.
This rustic Italian eatery, nestled among U Street’s row houses, will host a family-style Thanksgiving brunch. For $45, dine on decadent black Spanish turkey – a specific breed of bird that was popular in the DMV area with colonial settlers in the 18th century. The bird is the direct descendant of Mexican turkeys
stolen taken by Spanish settlers to Europe and then introduced into North America when the colonies were established. The meat is known for its richness. Other dishes included are a veggie minestrone with sage and heirloom squash risotto.
