10 Harlem Restaurants Offering Thanksgiving Dinner (Yes, Even To Go)

Updated: Nov 20, 2021

Not the cooking type? This year you can go back to enjoying Thanksgiving dinner in a restaurant (you'll have to show proof of vaccination, of course).

Or if you prefer to have the whole meal catered, a few spots will help you do that, too.

Here, then, are 10 Harlem restaurants that will do most of the work on Turkey Day, whether you choose to go out or dine at home.


Amy Ruth's

Central Harlem 113 W 116th St between Lenox and Adam Clayton Powell, Jr. Blvds

Dine in and order the prix fixe dinner, or get the holiday turkey/ham platter for 10 people to enjoy at home.

BLVD Bistro

Central Harlem 2149 Frederick Douglass Blvd and W 116th St

This spot offers Thanksgiving two ways: a dine-in prix fixe holiday meal (including homemade buttermilk biscuits, roast turkey/short rib bourguignon/wild salmon, candied yams, and mac and cheese) or a catered holiday meal with a similar menu.

Dinosaur Bar-B-Que

West Harlem 700 W 125th St at 12th Ave

To-go packages include the whole meal (a pit-roasted turkey, sides and dessert) or just the turkey and gravy on its own.

The in-house Thanksgiving dinner here is a three-course affair, including a main course with three choices: roasted turkey breast, salmon, or mushroom ravioli.

Dine in or take out from a holiday menu that includes butternut squash soup, roasted turkey and apple pie.

Harlem Seafood Soul

Make a fried turkey the centerpiece of your meal—and leave the tricky stuff to the pros. Pick up is in East Harlem.


Central Harlem 300 W 114th St at Frederick Douglass Blvd

The dine-in Thanksgiving menu includes "comfortizers" like Southern panzanella, entrees including roasted turkey or pineapple glazed ham, and desserts like Grandma's sweet potato pie.

Red Rooster

Central Harlem 310 Lenox Ave between W 125th and W 126th Sts

This year you can go back to enjoying Rooster's Thanksgiving menu—including fried turkey, cornbread stuffing, and garlic mash—at the restaurant itself.

The at-home meal kit here is for 4-6 people: You finish cooking the local heritage turkey, which comes with creative sides like oyster stuffing and duck-fat potato terrine.
