The best New Orleans restaurants open on Thanksgiving

November 3 2016 | Articles

Thanksgiving is just around the corner (Thursday, November 24) and you know what that means – food. A lot of food. A lot of GOOD food.

Not everyone wants to spend the time it takes to prepare a holiday feast, though, or can travel home for one. Luckily, holidays are some of the best times to try out restaurants in New Orleans. Even though many are closed for Thanksgiving, there are still some really great ones open and offering special menus. It's may not be as traditional as sitting around the table with your family, but it sure does taste good.

Below is a list of our favorite restaurants open Thursday:

Reservations are required for most (if not all) of these places for Thanksgiving, so if you’re still deciding where you want to eat, you should make up your mind soon. If you call a restaurant and they tell you it’s booked solid for the day, then ask to be placed on a waiting list. If someone cancels their reservation, then the restaurant may give you a call.

If you can't make it to New Orleans or just love perparing the delicious feast yourself, jazz up your meal by adding a New Orleans style dish or two.
