Give Thanks: Dining Out for the Holiday

thanksgiving ramen at talde

If you aren't cooking this year, give thanks for Miami's plethora of restaurants that are hosting a holiday supper. While the typical rules of etiquette apply, take extra care to remember that most of the staff would rather be with their families than serving you and yours. When the tip comes, make sure to be extra generous. 

db Bistro Moderne
For $65, dine on a three-course, French inspired Thanksgiving feast and get a a turkey sandwich to-go. The perfect option for someone more interested in the sport of football than the sport of Thanksgiving.

The Miami Beach EDITION
Created by Jean-Georges Vongerichten, diners at Market will enjoy a three-course, pre fixe Thanksgiving dinner menu for $42. It includes butternut squash soup, roasted turkey with chestnut stuffing, and maple pecan pie. For a fancier affair, Matador Room will serve a Thanksgiving turkey special alongside its regular dinner menu.

Il Mulino New York 
The Italian eatery is offering a decadently traditional Thanksgiving feast at both of their South Florida locations – South Beach and Sunny Isles. For $50 per person, guests can indulge in Organic Roasted Turkey, Walnut and Sausage Stuffing, Fresh Cranberry Sauce, and Black Truffle Mashed Potatoes. For a sweet finale, Il Mulino is serving Apple Strudel with Gelato.

PB Station
Chef Medin and the Pubbelly Group offer two different menus for Thanksgiving – pick either American or Latin flavors for three courses at $68 per person. The 'Miami' version includes Turkey Empanadas, Crispy Skin Cochinillo and Red Beans & Rice Casserole.

Toscana Divino 
For a family affair, without the stress, Toscana Divino is serving a family style Thanksgiving meal featuring beet carpaccio, gran tagliere della tradizione, bruschetta, traditional roasted turkey, and sides including Italian sausage stuffing and pumpkin gnocchi. The menu is $55 per person. 

Talde Miami Beach
Dale Talde's Asian spot at The Confidante hotel is not known for classic dishes. For Thanksgiving, the chef serves up his take on traditional holiday fare combined with Asian flavors into one bowl. With turkey, stuffing, cranberries and spinach wontons, Thanksgiving ramen is a new way to experience a classic meal.  

The list above is just a selection of the restaurants around town offering a meal for the holiday. For a more comprehensive list, we recommend google.
