For the homesick... or the greedy

Somehow November has arrived, but don’t pop your pumpkins away just yet. Thanksgiving is around the corner (28 November) and if you are an American in London, or just love any excuse for a feeding, there are many places in the capital for you to fill your pilgrim boots. 

18 Wellington Street, Covent Garden, London, WC2E 7DD

Often hailed as the best American restaurant in London, you can bet that Christopher’s will be serving up a Thanksgiving feast so delicious it will transport your tastebuds across the pond.  Located in Covent Garden, the decadent Modernist interior is a stunning setting for your dinner, which includes three scrumptious courses for £65. Choose from a range of starters such as seared scallops, carrot and cumin soufflé or classic chowder before tucking into slow cooked ballotine of turkey stuffed with authentic Michigan chestnut and cherry stuffing. 

Blues Kitchen
111-113 Camden High Street, Camden, London, NW1 7JN

If you prefer your cornbread with a side of soul, Blues Kitchen is the place for you, as this 28 November, they are serving up succulent buttermilk fried turkey and twice baked mac and cheese with a big helping of live music from the Jamabalaya House Band. With the best honky-tonk tunes to get you in the festive spirit, you can dance off your pumpkin pie and toasted marshmallows and if you are American, bring along your passport to get a free shot of bourbon to kick of the party. Enjoy three courses for £29.95. 

Earlsfield, Clapham, Fulham, Old Street, Soho, Tower Hill, Covent Garden 

Thanksgiving is all about sharing, so if you are in a generous mood, head to Bodean’s this 28th, where sharing platters are piled high with juicy meat such as glazed ham, turkey drumstick and turkey breast alongside creamy mashed potatoes; enough to feed any family. This menu will be served across all the capital’s venues, but book in early as every year, the feast fills right up.  End your meal with zingy key lime pie or the classic pumpkin pie for the traditionalists amongst you - three courses cost just £29.95.

If you want to celebrate Thanksgiving a little upmarket this year, head to Smith and Wollensky. Known asthesteakhouse on either side of the Atlantic, Smith and Wollensky is rumoured to serve the best steak in London, so we can guarantee that their roasted free-range bronze turkey will be prepared with just as much love and care.  If you fancy a steak instead, don’t worry as their 320g USDA Prime Sirloin is also on the menu, as well as bourbon glazed carrots and green bean and tomato casserole. Treat yourself with this one - three courses cost £69.

 If you are one of those people who find themselves fighting fork-first for either white or dark meat when it comes to the turkey, Temper is here to calm all potential family feuds. You can either choose wood roasted white turkey breast with cranberry chilli jam and gravy or opt for the dark turkey meat pie with a sweet potato and pecan crumb. Truffle butter mash, toasted corn and sausage and sage stuffing sides round off the meal for a top feasting. A bargain at three courses for £39.
