Wondering where to eat this Thanksgiving? Thankfully, we have six options around town for the perfect dining-out holiday meal.
1301 Pennsylvania Ave. NW
Prefer to eat Thanksgiving at home but avoid the stress of cooking? Try The Henri’s Thanksgiving at Home Menu, with prices starting at $150 for two. Turkey orders include fresh thyme gravy, a crunchy autumnal salad, cornbread with sausage stuffing, roasted brussel sprouts and more. Desserts are a hard choice as they all look equally decadent — especially the pecan bourbon pie. Best of all, guests can enjoy the spirit of the season and sponsor a local family by donating a turkey dinner for four. Note: orders will need to be placed by Wednesday Nov. 16. The Henri’s Thanksgiving orders can be placed by calling 202-989-5881.
1226 36th St. NW
1789 is offering a three-course meal for $85 (children under 12 eat for $40). Noteworthy items include chicken pot pie fritters for the table and a Kabocha squash velouté with brown-butter cinnamon toast, spun sugar and espelette. Their roasted heritage turkey breast with a cranberry-citrus jus is about as Thanksgiving as it gets too.

Blue Duck Tavern
1201 24th St. NW
The 24th Street restaurant inside the Park Hyatt is offering an a la carte, three-course menu pre-paid for $145 per person (in addition to 10 percent tax and 20 percent gratuity), and $55 for children under 12. Cancellations must be made two weeks in advance in order to receive a full refund. Enough about the technical stuff though—let’s get to the food. Blue Duck Tavern’s Thanksgiving menu is mouthwatering. Don’t miss jumbo lump crab cake cress with green goddess remoulade, a tasty green bean and mushroom casserole and a pumpkin cheese cake topped with maple whipped ganache and pepita-puffed grain crunch.

3100 K St. NW
Enjoy either an a la carte menu or a four-course “Celebration of Thanksgiving” menu at Fiola Mare this year. When booking your reservation, note that you’re required to select either one or the other to secure your spot. The a la carte menu includes choices like caviar produced in Calvisano, Italy served with warm blini, whipped ricotta and traditional garnishes and flavorful grilled seafood favorites. If you’re more of a traditionalist, the Celebration of Thanksgiving menu includes dishes such as Beaver Creek Farms roasted turkey with chestnut and turkey confit stuffing, vin santo jus, sweet potato and cranberry mostarda.
