This Thursday is the official kick off of the holiday season in the US: Thanksgiving. While you may be living abroad, you don’t have to miss out on the pure bliss of a Thanksgiving induced food coma. Due to the huge number of US expats living in London, numerous restaurants and shops have gotten in on the action meaning you can have your turkey (or your pumpkin pie) and eat it, too. Below, we’ve compiled a list of some of the restaurants who are getting into the Thanksgiving spirit and, where possible, have added a link to the menu. Please be advised that advanced booking is encouraged by all of the restaurants.
If you’re hoping to save ahead the Christmas season, Honky Tonk (with locations in Clapham and Chelsea) may be just what you’re looking for. Honky Tonk, thanksgiving meals could be had for a paltry £19.95/head. Here’s their menu.
Meanwhile, The Breakfast Club is serving up Thanksgiving goodness across London in its five branches across London (Islington, Soho, Hoxton, Spitalfields, and Battersea Rise) with a menu that comprises of a three-course meal including roast turkey, and pecan pie at £25 per person. Here’s their full menu. The Riding House Café will serve up a delicious two-course meal this Thursday, also for £35 per person. Here’s the menu.
American Brasserie Joe Allen will be hosting a Thanksgiving Day feast with traditional served “family style” at £40 per person.
Alternatively, if you’re not interested in going to a restaurant to eat out on Thanksgiving, Wholefoods Market is selling a number of All-In-One meals which includes turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce, Brussels sprouts, and gravy. They also are selling Thanksgiving turkeys and various traditional sides including green beans with shallots, root vegetables, roast potatoes, mashed potatoes, and sweet potatoes.
