Top Restaurants Open On Thanksgiving In South Florida
An alternative option to a home-cooked Thanksgiving meal is to go to a restaurant that is open on Thanksgiving and offers delicious eats and a great ambiance. Sitting down and being tended to by a waiter, not having to put dishes in the dishwasher or clean up afterwards and eating food that admittedly will be better than yours are tremendous factors for going out to eat on Thanksgiving. Thankfully, South Florida will have some top-flight restaurants offering price-fixed menus for the holiday so a family can enjoy a beautiful ambiance and dining experience.

Swine Southern Table & Bar

Coral Gables, FL 33134
(786) 360-6433

Right off of Miracle Mile in Coral Gables, the family that goes to eat a Swine will feel as if they are in the country house of a warm, friendly family. Swine is offering a $58 price-fixed two-course menu featuring a first course of dishes like deviled eggs and angus burnt ends and then moving to roasted turkey with gravy and cranberry port sauce. Sides include cornbread with sage stuffing, whipped sweet potato, fried Brussels sprouts and mac and cheese. For those who can fit in dessert, bourbon pecan pie and/or spiced pumpkin pie are available.

BLT Prime

Miami, FL 33178
(305) 591-6616

At the wondrous Trump National Doral, the BLT Prime Steakhouse will be open on Thanksgiving Day to the public offering an authentic Thanksgiving menu.

The turkey will be made to surprise, oozing with new tastes for one’s taste buds to evoke memories of homemade Thanksgiving meals past. The entire menu brings aromas of autumn and home-cooked meals to ensure that going out to eat was a great choice.
