A Foodie’s Guide to Traveling in Boston, MA, on Thanksgiving
It’s just your luck; you need to travel to Boston on Thanksgiving, one of the best days of the year to indulge your gastronomical ambitions! But don’t worry. All is not lost!
Like all of the United States, Boston has its fair share of Thanksgiving treats. So use Cubby to stow your luggage away, and head on out to the following places if you’re in the mood for some delicious treats—traditional and otherwise!
– The Beacon Hill Bistro
Though located in a posh neighborhood in Boston, Beacon Hill Bistro exudes none of the attitude that’s associated with it!
Instead, what you get is a cozy, softly-lit restaurant that has an eight-seat bar, a good wine list and a long list of food that’ll make you want to cuddle up with a pillow and sleep for ten hours afterward.
There are iconic meals such as steak tartar, as well as pan-roasted salmon and more; the chef tops this scrumptious list off with desserts such as chocolate mousse and lemon tarts.
If you’re in the mood for food that’s fulfilling but slightly luxurious, the Beacon Hill Bistro is the restaurant for you.
Think elegance and class, but with love and passion that you can only experience through Italian food, and you have Davio’s!
A regional steakhouse with supremacy in all things Italian, Davio’s has all staples you’ll ever find in an Italian restaurant, such as Bolognese made with veal, braised beef and pork, as well as the 12-ounce Kobe sirloin. On the other side of the scale, you’ll also find other untraditional dishes such as broiled oysters, stuffed with mushrooms and garlic.
With a satisfying wine list and a dessert menu that’ll satisfy even the pickiest of eaters, Davio’s is one of the most popular haunts in town on Thanksgiving.
Bonus: The restaurant also houses its own pizza bar and bakery, so you know you’re in for a treat, and then some!
– Henrietta’s Table
Channeling a classic New England Farmhouse vibe, Henrietta’s Table is spacious yet cozy at the same time. In short, despite being a very busy restaurant, it still feels like home!
With a menu that primarily features fresh local produce—thanks to Chef Peter Davis—you’ll be able to enjoy some distinctive American specialties like Yankee pot roast with gravy and mashed potatoes, herb-crusted rotisseries chicken and Henrietta’s Famous Chocolate Bread Pudding Sundae for Thanksgiving dinner.
With an all-American wine list and fun cocktails to boot, Henrietta’s Table is just the place to go to if you’re looking for home away from home.
Located in a small nook in Harvard Square, Harvest has been home to some of the city’s top chefs. So you know they’ll do their best to retain that stellar reputation!
Featuring a stylish, sleek setting and a menu that’s a thing of beauty, this award-winning restaurant takes pride itself on being one of the go-to restaurants for people who want to have the ultimate Boston dining experience.
For Thanksgiving, you can expect food like grilled meats, pasts and a Seafood Boil, as well as some light brunch options like smoked salmon eggs Benedict. Top it all off with toffee cake!
