    Tabard Inn does a nice Thanksgiving - lots of families. Very traditional Americana setting near Dupont Circle.

      Billy Martin's Tavern has a special fixed-price meal all day. There are usually a lot of children for the lunch shift.

        I like the recommendation for Tabard Inn ($65/p.p). A few years ago, I spent a wonderful Thanksgiving at 1789, but am not sure if they're having it this year. I'd also recommend Blue Duck Tavern although it seems to be a bit pricy ($85/adult and $42.50/child).

        Opentable also has a list of restaurants offering a special Thanksgiving menu:


        P.S. Weird, some links to restaurants show up, while others don't. Must be glitches in the new system here.

            Thanks, mselectra, clearly there's a lot of weirdness going on with the links. I hope they get it straightened out b/c this new glitch could end up confusing people.
