10 Great Spots for Thanksgiving Dinner in Brooklyn

10 Great Spots for Thanksgiving Dinner in Brooklyn

Thanksgiving can be stressful. Cooking in a too-small kitchen, worrying if the turkey will dry out, running out of wine, cleaning up after too many people. Luckily, this is Brooklyn, and all of that is optional. These 10 places are all serving Thanksgiving dinner this year — sans doing dishes.


149 Broadway, between Bedford and Driggs avenues.

If what you’re looking for is a fancier meal, Meadowsweet has got you covered. This Michelin-starred Williamsburg spot is serving a three course pre-fixe, featuring day boat scallops, filet, roasted turkey (of course), and maple panna cotta. The restaurant is seating from 1 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., and can accommodate vegan diets.

Rose Water

787 Union Street, between 5th and 6th avenues.

Rose Water, a Park Slope institution, is having an extra-special Thanksgiving dinner this year. After 19 years in business, this will be their last day open.

Buttermilk Channel

The menu also offers oysters, Four & Twenty Blackbirds pies, and roasted sweet potato soup.
