Recommendations for Thanksgivng Dinner in a Restaurant

Hi. My family is coming to visit for Thanksgiving and because I'll be 8.5 months pregnant have suggested that we got out for a nice dinner instead of cooking.

I've looked around online for lists of places that have great meals on Thanksgiving and a lot of the places on those lists are now closed or the lists were years old.

Can you recommend restaurants for Thanksgiving dinner in DC or northern VA?

It needs to at least serve turkey as an entree option but other choices on the menu are fine too....but no buffet style places.

Thanks for your help and ideas...

  1. I would call Equinox, or possibly Tabard Inn.

    Other possibilities would be good hotel restaurants, like J&G Steakhouse or Bourbon Steak.

    1. We just booked for Patowmack Farms up in Lovettesville and I'm really looking forward to it. I would also like to give them a HUGE shout-out because I called yesterday and left a message and they actually called me back. That is the first time ever that a restaurant has called me back. Ever. Beverly was charming and lovely and I have no doubt that they will remember the special request, which she agreed to accommodate.
