Thanksgiving is just weeks away, and while we love to eat…sometimes cooking on this special holiday just isn’t convenient. You’re in luck…New Orleans is known as the food capital of the country (no, seriously!), and some of our favorite places to eat will be open!
Tujagues will be open from 11 a.m. until 9:30 p.m. New Orleans second-oldest restaurant will be serving up something special from start to finish beginning with a shrimp remoulade salad for your first course … then enjoy a sweet potato and crab bisque before your main course of turkey, cranberry sauce, candied yams and oyster dressing. Save room for desert because the bread pudding is unbelievably delightful!
Tony Moran’s will open at 5 p.m. on Thanksgiving and will feature a special menu along with their regular menu that always receives rave reviews!
Court of Two Sisters was recently named the “Best Place for Brunch” by Travel + Leisure readers. It will be open during regular business hours for brunch and dinner on Thanksgiving.
Oceana Grill will open its doors on Thanksgiving during normal business hours. If you’re in the area, we recommend popping in. Your taste buds will be glad you did! (Check out their frozen Hurricanes – we think they are the best!)
Olde Nola Cookery will earn your appreciation on Thanksgiving with delicious Creole Cajun cooking in the heart of the French Quarter.
Hard Rock Café is the place to be for a rock-n-roll style Thanksgiving with fabulous food and a fun atmosphere right in the French Quarter.
Andrea’s in Metairie offers superb service and a delightful dining experience with a variety of American and Northern Italian entrees, and Thanksgiving is no exception. They’ll be open from 11 a.m. until 8 p.m.
Most of these exceptional establishments require reservations this Thanksgiving … so be sure to plan ahead! If they’re already booked, asked to be placed on a waiting list in case someone cancels!
