1. Anthem Kitchen + Bar

"Take in Thanksgiving dinner at historic Faneuil Hall with a meal at Anthem, located in the South Market building. The modern-rustic eatery is offering its full menu from 11 a.m.-10 p.m. For the traditionally-minded, there are classic holiday specials, including roasted pumpkin soup with spiced yogurt and toasted pepitas; a full dinner with brined turkey breast and all the trimmings; a turkey gobbler sandwich with sliced breast meat, cornbread stuffing, cranberry sauce, and gravy on a baguette; and a spiced pumpkin and vanilla bean crème brûlée duo."

2. Aura at the Seaport Hotel

"The Thanksgiving brunch buffet at Seaport Hotel’s Aura will feature Thanksgiving favorites and brunch classics from 11 a.m.-3 p.m., plus live jazz music. Like any good New England spread, clams, oysters, and shrimp cocktail appear at the raw bar. Breakfast fans can skip the usual turkey and cranberry sauce in favor of eggs Benedict, leek and truffle quiche, and French toast. The traditionalists can stick to the roasted butternut soup with chestnut cream, roast turkey breast with cranberry sauce, roasted honey ham, sweet potato & maple syrup casserole, stuffing, buttermilk mashed potatoes, and roasted Brussels sprouts. Save room for a dessert buffet, too, including cakes, pies, mini pastries, and a chocolate fountain."

3. The Beehive

"The Tremont Street jazz club and eatery is celebrating Thanksgiving with live music all day, plus food from 11 a.m.-midnight. A three-course dinner is available from 11 a.m.-10 p.m. Starters range from crab croquettes to roasted squash salad, as well as foie gras au torchon. In addition to turkey with green bean casserole, caramelized onion and apple stuffing, cranberry sauce and mashed potatoes, mains include vegetarian Thanksgiving, rack of lamb, salmon, halibut, and a 12 oz New York Strip. The “leftovers” menu, offered from 9 p.m.-midnight, includes a turkey melt for anyone playing out the day with a show and a snack."
