Thanksgiving traditions vary more than anyone might think. Some people spend it with friends, while others spend it with family. Some enjoy a big, juicy homemade turkey and mashed potatoes, others enjoy a tasty dinner out on the town.
If you find yourself in the latter category, this page is for you. Keep reading for information on some of Providence’s best places to eat out for Thanksgiving dinner this year.
Castle Hill Inn
The Castle Hill Inn, a luxurious seaside estate turned hotel, was built in 1875. The Inn’s secluded location coupled with its incredible beach views captivated its original occupants and has the same effect on those seeking a retreat to this day.
Come for the views and stay for the delicious Thanksgiving specials The Castle Hill Inn will be serving. Pay a flat rate and eat like a king by starting off with a chilled shrimp cocktail. Indulge in the crispy polenta “poutine”, their twist on a Canadian favorite.
Hotel Providence, located in the thick of the city’s entertainment district, is home to the Backstage Kitchen & Bar. The restaurant’s proximity to Providence’s theater hub has inspired its theme, which becomes obvious with just one glimpse at the menu.
Get started with a few Act I’s for the table, like a Rhode Island calamari or lobster salad sliders. Take a brief Intermission with a soup or salad before chowing down on Act II, which could be rye crusted salmon or vegetable napoleon.
No matter what you order, you can expect to be finishing off your meal with a round of applause.
McCormick & Schmick’s
Bill McCormick and Doug Schmick shared a dream that came alive in the 1970s. That dream involved the establishment of a top-quality seafood and grill restaurant. The restaurant’s Fresh List menu concept took off in a big way and the restaurant now has more than 80 locations across the country.
Each restaurant is as uniquely designed as their menus. The expertly trained chefs at McCormick & Schmick’s create exceptional recipes using the freshest seafood available to them that day. One day, you could be dining on swordfish casino, followed the next day by savoring a whiskey glazed salmon.
Now that you know who will be serving up the best Thanksgiving feasts this season, get to gobbling down on some turkey, or start with an appetizer!
