If you can’t take the heat this Thanksgiving, you know what they say. Between family squabbles and that giant bird you have to roast for hours, Thanksgiving provides plenty of stress (and heat). DC restaurants know that and they’re around to keep you out of the kitchen by doing all the work for you. Whether you want to feast in their dining room or take home all the fixings to eat at your own table, these DC spots are primed and ready for Thanksgiving.
The oldest continuously running hotel in all of the District seems like the ideal place to spend Thanksgiving. Surrounded by rustic fireplaces and old school decor, you’ll feast on a traditional holiday spread that consists of options like a warm Brussels sprout salad, maple herb-roasted turkey breast or sweet potato gnocchi, and a classic slice of pie with the fruit filling of your choosing to top it all off.
Cost: $85 per person
If you can secure the seat closest to your favorite side, you’ll have unlimited helpings at this family-style feast.

You’ll get an oven-roasted heritage turkey, sourdough stuffing, sweet and mashed potatoes, caramelized Brussels sprouts, cranberry sauce, and a pie to share with your family or friends.
