Thanksgiving Dinners Around Port Chester

Posted by editor on 11/16/16

There’s nothing quite like a home-cooked Thanksgiving meal, but if you’re still settling in your new Castle apartment and looking to go out this year, there are some local places that can help you out. There are some great restaurants close to The CAstle which will be serving delicious food or food that you can pre-order your dinner at home.

Appetit Bistro– Did you know there’s a great modern French bistro right in Port Chester? We are happy to hear they will be open on Thanksgiving! Their appetizer selection is superb.  You’ll find escargot, tuna tartare, roasted beet salad, mushroom ravioli and more.  Entrees include grilled Scottish salmon, chicken paillard, duck breast and other tasty options.  They also have a brunch menu which includes favorites such as banana pancakes, steak and eggs and French toast.  You’ll feel like you’re right in Paris.

McShanes Public House – Known as Port Chester’s premier gastropub, this is a great option for a fun Thanksgiving dinner.  They have a beautiful wooden wrap-around bar and a mouth-watering food and drink menu.  This isn’t your typical Irish bar. At McShane’s you’ll find small plates such as spiced lamb sliders, nut crusted fried brie and fish tacos.  Some of their favorite entrees are the country cottage pie (braised short rib, red wine, onions and peas) bangers and mash and roasted organic chicken (cauliflower and cheese gratin, pan sauce, served with choice of potatoes).  They also have a large beer selection, happy hour from 3-7 on week days and specialty cocktails.

Whole Foods – This year you can spend less time in the kitchen and pre-order a fast, easy and delicious meal.  If you’re having 16-18 people over you can order the “Grand Feast” which includes a 16-pound turkey, maple bourbon glazed ham, mac and cheese, apple and pumpkin pie and classic Thanksgiving sides.  If it’s a low-key dinner for two you can still treat yourself to a fully cooked, herb-roasted boneless turkey breast (which comes with a roasting pan) and 5 sides!
