“Eat, drink and be thankful.” That’s the way one national chain restaurant is promoting its Thanksgiving Day feast. If you plan to indulge in the merriment, and be thankful you don’t have to prepare your own meal, here’s a list of restaurants open on Thanksgiving in Boston and surrounding towns.
At some you can dine in, others also offer meals to go. And you’ll not only walkaway stuffed, but you won’t have any dishes to clean up. Thanksgiving meal prices range from $9.99 to $59 per person. A few caveats: where available make reservations ahead of time, prices, hours and participation may vary, and beverages are typically not included.
I’ll add more as I find out about them, so if you know of any decently-priced Thanksgiving meals let me know.
