Let someone else do the cooking this year! Head to one of these great Boston restaurants for Thanksgiving.
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."
"Take a savory journey into the past. An evening of entertainment and hospitality awaits you as you sit down to a "groaning board" filled with the finest food that this season of plenty has to offer. Your Pilgrim hosts - residents of 1627 Plimoth - will spice up your dinner conversation with tales of England - old and new. Discover the table manners and recipes that traveled across the Atlantic with the Pilgrims, and find out about what happened at the famous harvest celebration of 1621. During dinner, you will be entertained with centuries-old psalms and songs and perhaps you will be convinced to join in singing a round or two. "

Try out one of these 3 Air BnB's, compiled by Thrillist, and have a staycation in Boston: "Whether you’re putting up the parents, keeping friends off your futon, or just trying to escape your roommates for a night (seriously, is that too much to ask?!?), we scoured thousands of listings to find the most extravagant, historic, or downright sexy Airbnb rentals in Boston. (Note: prices may fluctuate based on seasonality/demand.)"
1." Beacon Hill
Mention historic Beacon Hill and you no doubt think elegant brownstones, cobblestone streets, brick sidewalks, and gas lamps. Also, mustachioed Brahmins holding bags and bags of old money. Updated in 2015, this four-story brownstone dates back over 100 years and actually has a post office on the first floor -- so, there’s no excuse for not sending grandma a postcard. There’s a newly-renovated kitchen, a pellet stove, and a foosball table if you’re hanging in. And if you’re not, the place is right on Charles St, one of Boston’s top boutique shopping spots. Just don’t leave before grabbing a beer at The Sevens."
A short walk to Fenway Park, this ultra-mod, 3,500sqft “urban oasis” was built in 2012 and sleeps 10 in four bedrooms. It also comes equipped with a chef’s kitchen, floor-to-ceiling windows, an entertainment space, and a large yard/outdoor grilling area for tailgating before the big game. High five."
3. "North End
Located in the heart of Boston’s Italian section of town (the North End), this newly-renovated, two-story spot may as well come with a pizzeria and pastry shop built into the living room; that’s how close you’ll be to all the action. And when you’re not stuffing your face with the city’s best cannoli, you can admire the unit’s exposed brick walls and gorgeous wooden beams."
"This Thanksgiving, kick back, relax and give thanks for not having to cook, clean and entertain, as the Spirit of Boston is hosting a specialty Thanksgiving Day lunch cruise on Thursday, November 26th.
The Spirit will be serving its delicious Holiday Lunch Buffet with a heavy dose of pigskin on its TV's and interactive entertainment on its three floors of luxury. Enjoy Boston's most unique Thanksgiving Day experience out on the water and take the stress out of the beginning of the holiday season aboard the Spirit of Boston.
Enjoy an afternoon full of Thanksgiving favorites, including turkey, football and pumpkin pie. Plus, snap photos in our onboard photo booth, play board games and challenge your family or friends to giant Jenga or tabletop shuffleboard."
