6 Boston Restaurants Open on Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is all about spending time with family and friends. Skip the cooking and cleaning so you can focus on being with the ones you love! The Briar Group is dedicated to preserving the special, welcoming touches to your Thanksgiving dinner without any of the work. Read on to find the perfect match for your celebration.


Some friends are so special that they deserve their own holiday. Anthem Kitchen + Bar is hosting a Friendsgiving runch celebration in historic Faneuil Hall on Sunday, November 17 from 9am to 3pm. Reunite with friends or spend the afternoon with those closest to you before the holiday chaos kicks in. They’ll be offering a Friendsgiving brunch menu, featuring pumpkin pie French toast, apple bacon cornbread, and autumn spiced pancakes, in addition to their full brunch menu. For all the fall feels, keep warm with hot mulled cider, an iced pumpkin spiked latte, or hot buttered rum. Anthem is also open on Thanksgiving, serving Thanksgiving specials, including a traditional turkey dinner and a turkey gobbler sandwich. Reserve your table for Friendsgiving brunch or Thanksgiving dinner for full-bellied laughs and full bellies!

City Table is perfect for a more formal celebration on Thanksgiving Thursday. Located in the elegant and iconic Lenox Hotel, their staff will welcome you with friendly, personalized service as you celebrate family. They’re offering their Thanksgiving menu from 12 – 9pm on November 28 in addition to their regular menu. Enjoy delicious autumn specials like the roasted sugar pumpkin & onion soup, or an authentic turkey dinner—served with the works, of course. Sip on one-of-a-kind cocktails while you savor all your fall favorites. Finally, no Thanksgiving dinner is complete without something sweet; finish off your meal with decadent pumpkin crème brûlée. Make your reservation to make the most of your Thanksgiving, surrounded by family, friends, and great food.

Just down the hall at the Lenox Hotel, Solas Irish Pub is inviting you in for the holidays. Solas is offering the same Thanksgiving specials as City Table from 11am – 11pm in addition to their everyday casual comfort fare. Enjoy the cozy atmosphere and great conversation while enjoying dishes like the fall salad, slow-roasted beef sirloin, and an apple & cranberry tart. Celebrate surrounded by those you’re thankful for in the heart of Back Bay. Reserve your family dinner table before it fills up!

If a cozy Irish pub sounds like the perfect way to celebrate family, head to MJ O’Connor’s at the Park Plaza. Thanksgiving is all about the time we spend with family, and MJ O’Connor’s has the perfect atmosphere for storytelling and reminiscing. They have the NFL Sunday ticket, so you can catch all the Thanksgiving football action. Dig into delicious holiday specials in addition to their full menu from 11:30am – 9pm. Their specials will include a turkey dinner, slow-roasted prime rib, and pumpkin & walnut ravioli. The bar will also stay open until 2am, so you can keep the laughs going all evening with eclectic cocktails and carefully chosen wines. Call ahead to give your loved ones a Thanksgiving to be thankful for.
