    Had Thanksgiving dinner at Spire at Hotel Nine-Zero. It was a decent traditional dinner with a modern spin. That is gone now, replaced by K-O Prime. Who knows though, they may also offer.

        My husband and I had a wonderful time at Sel De La Terre last year and plan on putting together a table of friends this year to enjoy the same great experience. Here is the report I did last year.

      I just did a search on opentable.com, and of the restaurants showing availability, the two that stuck out were Sel de la Terre, which is a terrific place any night of the week, and Henrietta's Kitchen, which strikes me as the kinda place that will do a traditional New England Thanksgiving well.

          Go the real traditional route and have dinner at Plimoth Plantation. It is a "trip" and incredibly entertaining.

            I second the Plimoth Plantation vote. Just make your reservations ASAP because they fill up quite early. You'll get the real 1622 experience and have some great food--their catering operation is excellent.

          Durgin Park has offered a traditional Thanksgiving dinner in past years. Had it a good few years ago and found it very good, if standard and basic fare.

            Three of us had Thanksgiving dinner at Harvest in Harvard Square two years ago. It was wonderful. What I remember is that you had a choice of three or four courses and could add wine pairings for an additional cost. We each got something different (except for the entree...turkey for two out of three) and were extremely please with the quality and potions. We left full but not gorged and the service was great as well. The only thing we didn't like was how crowded it was (we were tucked into a tiny table in the corner). Overall though it was a great meal...and no dishes!
