Any occasion is an excellent opportunity to get together and celebrate, especially if it’s followed by mouth-watering food you have been waiting all year to enjoy. We hope you’re ready to check out Boston’s greatest spaces because today, we come to you with some of the best venues in town. If you haven’t already, prepare your list of demands, and let’s find the perfect space for this year’s Thanksgiving dinner. Thanks to Tagvenue, you’ll be able to sort out restaurants that are open for Thanksgiving this year, so make sure to filter the venues on our search engine and find the one that suits you best.
So what can you expect from us? Well, you’re sure to find restaurants of many themes, looks, and sizes, rent spaces for specific numbers of guests, and find locations fit for every pocket. With us, you won’t have to telephone every restaurant to check the availability for the evening, but with just a couple of clicks, you can check and book the ideal space by yourself. And with that being said, have you thought about all the Thanksgiving restaurant essentials for the upcoming dinner? We know that sometimes the renting process might be stressful, so we’ve prepared a short list of things you might need before you officially reserve a space.
What should a restaurant offer for a Thanksgiving dinner? Of course, a traditional Thanksgiving dinner wouldn’t be the same without the roast turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes, gravy and, of course, pumpkin pie. Well, that’s only the tip of the iceberg because the menu should be much more extensive! But of course, you can always put a spin on the traditional meals and have the dishes prepared with a more modern approach. These days, it can be quite the trend to have Thanksgiving dinner made with any cuisine of your liking, just as long as you’re there to celebrate with your family and friends. However, if you are a huge fan of traditional Thanksgiving food, yet the restaurant you choose to spend your time in doesn’t offer the cuisine you’d like to have, you can always try to see if you can opt for external catering on the day. Some venues are more than happy to rent the space; it could make for a more affordable option. And on that note, if you wish to make the space even more budget-friendly, you can always try a BYOB option. Having your own alcohol or beverages on the day of your dinner will significantly reduce the cost of renting the space. Just bear in mind the corkage fee you may have to pay if you choose this option.
Of course, you have to think through where exactly you’d like the dinner to take place. What part of Boston would you like to celebrate in? Perhaps, you have an extended family dinner, it would be nice to choose a space located close to your homes, preferably not too far away for everyone, and easily accessible by the public commute. Check out if the venue offers parking spaces as well. Is anyone planning to fly over for Thanksgiving? Will they have easy access to the hotel? Make sure your guests are comfortable! Also, remember to double-check your guest list, and remember you’re counting the children, if there are any. Some restaurants will charge you packages for the evening, while others will charge you per guest. Of course, in many cases, children up to a certain age are free.
Have you made up your mind about the decorations? If you’re planning to rent a private space or a larger part of the venue for your party, then perhaps you’ll be able to decorate a part of the restaurant as well. That would surely put everyone in great spirits. But, of course, if that’s not really your cup of tea, you can always ask the host of the restaurant if they happen to have anything in mind for the decor, just to make it all that little more festive. And if you’re willing to go that extra mile for this year, and you’re in the mood, why not have something extra prepared? Perhaps some games, not only for the kids but also for the adults? Karaoke, drinking games, or some live music or entertainment? Especially if you’re planning to have a larger get-together for the day, it could be a good idea to have everyone more engaged and highlight the reason why they are all there.
With that being said, we hope you have fun putting together this festive dinner, and if you still have some questions, keep scrolling to the FAQ section to find out more.
Check out the Wine Room at Sofia Italian Steakhouse. This fab space is perfect for a traditional Thanksgiving dinner, especially if you want to celebrate in a group of up to 15 people. Check it out in the Upper Washington neighborhood. Another great place that we have on the list is Entire Venue at Vintage Lounge Boston. Perfect for this year’s Thanksgiving, it might surprise you with its sophisticated decor. For a price of $38 per person, we think that’s pretty reasonable!
Expect a price range of $60 per person. With some of the more affordable restaurants at a price of $20 per person, you are sure to host a fantastic dinner with no need to rob the bank. Of course, you can still expect prices of $85 per person, but with a restaurant like Entire Venue at Tuscan Kitchen Seaport Boston, the price is worth every penny! (All data from Tagvenue.com)
You will have to look around and check with the restaurant’s chefs and hosts. But we are sure that you can find a traditional Thanksgiving dinner in one of the many restaurants we’ve found for you in Boston.
Since Thanksgiving is such a hot time, you should aim to book a venue at least 8 weeks in advance. Many spaces will be booked out during this festive time, so the sooner you snag yourself the ideal space, the better! However, we recommend not leaving it until the last moment, it would be a shame to miss a space you’d really like!
Found an amazing venue within 10 minutes of looking! Really happy :)
I came across Tag Venue completely by accident and Sarah was unbelievably helpful in saving me valuable time and conducting the search on my behalf. I would not hesitate to use Tag Venue again.
It was really easy to find a wide range of potential locations, and I could contact many different venues with ease. Tagvenue allowed me to be very dynamic when organising my event. Would definitely use again!
