Where to Eat Thanksgiving Week

Whether you’re charging up for the big day or looking to enjoy a Thanksgiving meal out, we’ve got you covered

We get it. Between preparing for December holidays, your work potluck, and that early Friendsgiving you totally forgot you committed to, Thanksgiving Day can creep up on you without much notice. But fear not, friends. We’ve compiled a list of some top-notch eateries ready to satisfy your holiday cravings, so we can all live full and happy. Our only rule here: make reservations if you’re planning on a Thanksgiving meal out.

Both ViewHouse locations {multiple locations} are open for Thanksgiving eve and Thanksgiving Day from 11am-2am. Enjoy “Drinksgiving” from 9pm-2am on Thanksgiving eve, complete with a DJ, drink specials, and giveaways. Or come by for Thanksgiving dinner served all week long (November 22-26) for $20, featuring Sage Roasted Turchetta served with garlic roasted fingerling potatoes and a crispy Brussels sprout salad with dried cranberries and pecans—a dish recently featured in Wine Enthusiast’s November issue. Any guest who brings an unwrapped toy donation for Care 4 Colorado Toy Drive will also receive a free Peppermint Godiva Chocolate Martini (offer good from November 1-December 16).

Head to The Palm {1672 Lawrence Street, Denver; 303.825.7256} for a three-course Thanksgiving dinner on Thanksgiving Day from noon-8pm.

Dinner is $59 for adults, $24 for children 6-12, and free for children 5 or younger.
