Thanksgiving non-traditional open restaurants?
The best Thanksgiving I ever had, hands-down, was the one where my husband and I were both too ill to go anywhere and ended up ordering in Chinese.
We feel fine, but as it so happens, this year, no Thanksgiving plans have come our way and we are extremely happy with that.
I don't want to cook. He doesn't want to cook.
I want something higher grade than "grease" this year.
Has anyone any suggestions?
I know most of the hotels will be doing a Thanksgiving feast, but we're not interested. Tex-Mex, Asian, whatever, so long as it's not turkey and stuffing!
At least a couple places (Kantin, Dim Sum Chef) in the Super 88 food court (Allston) will be open Thanksgiving day (until 8pm and 6pm, respectively, iirc). The former even offers a "Thanksgiving party platter" (probably assorted roast and bbq meats)

Ditto. One of our most memorable Thanksgivings was when our flight out was cancelled, nobody knew we were still home, and we ended up at Kowloon for dinner. Not gourmet but still a hoot.
This year Mrs and I are tired of cooking for the brood so we are all going to Durgin Park. They might have turkey but I am having the big prime rib. Then to Quincy Market with the grandkids and across the greenway to the North End for pastry and coffee. Then home to a clean house!
