Not feeling the whole cooking thing this week? Maybe you just moved and haven’t unpacked yet, in which case, congratulations! Or maybe you just don’t like to cook in general and Thanksgiving dinner in no exception. Either way, you’re not alone! While most of the restaurants in the Heights will be closed tomorrow for Thanksgiving, there are a few places that will be staying open to accommodate those who’d rather spend the day relaxing with family than up to their elbows in turkey gizzards and yams.
B&B will be open from 11:00-8:00, serving items from their regular dinner menu and a special holiday four-course prix fixe menu. The prix fixe option will run you $55 for adults and $25 for kids under 12. The Thanksgiving menu includes choice of butternut squash soup or salad, prime rib or turkey, four vegetable sides, and a dessert. You can also pick up traditional Thanksgiving dishes to go if you prefer to eat at home. B&B Butchers is located at
1814 Washington Ave.
Open from 11:00 to 3:00, Federal Grill offers a Thanksgiving menu of turkey or ham with all the traditional trimmings, including pumpkin or pecan pie for dessert. Adults receive the full multi-course meal for $48 and kids under 12 eat for $15. A 20% gratuity will be added to all checks to make working over a holiday worth the staff’s while. Federal Grill is located at 510 Shepherd Drive.
If you’re looking for something a little different than the traditional turkey and sweet potatoes, look no further than Rainbow Lodge. Although they are also serving traditional Thanksgiving foods, the menu offers more variety than other Thanksgiving dining options. Entrees include rainbow trout sautéed with pecan brown butter, grilled venison medallions, and chile stuffed beef tenderloin, in addition to turkey with dressing, green beans, mashed potatoes, and cranberry sauce. They’ll also be serving Thanksgiving “snack packs” to go in the evening at a bargain price of $5, which include just enough turkey, dressing, and gravy for a sandwich. Rainbow Lodge is open from 11:30-7:30 and the Thanksgiving menu costs $58 per person. It is located 2011 Ella.
Whether you spend the Thanksgiving holiday dining out or cooking at home, we hope it’s a joyous one filled with family, friends, good food, and appreciation for the many blessings in life. Happy Thanksgiving from the Circa family to yours!
