New Orleans isn’t a city that shuts down for the biggest foodie holiday of the year. There are plenty of options to get your gobble on, like Fulton St. Bistro Bar. Choose from turkey, ribeye, duck or the yellow tuna Rockefeller. Entrées come with your choice of two sides such as sweet potato casserole, dressing made with cornbread, mac and cheese with a French twist, and much more. You’ll also have an à la carte menu with starters, soups and dessert.
Tivoli & Lee is famous for their three-course holiday brunch, served early from 7 a.m. – 3 p.m. The fixed price includes a starter of crab salad or gumbo, a smothered turkey benedict made with cranberry hollandaise and cornbread stuffing, and the main star is the court-bouillon. Pumpkin cheesecake with a spiced orange tea ice cream is the sweet ending you’re after.
Plenty to be Thankful For
The renowned Arnaud’s Restaurant has a $55 four-course fixed menu featuring shrimp Arnaud or a butternut squash soup to start. Choose from traditional turkey, pork loin, or gulf fish for the entrée. It ends with a chocolate budino or a pecan pie to satisfy your sweet tooth.
Try Kingish for a southern-style feast with four courses that kicks off with turkey gumbo. Choose from a sassafras-glazed ham or a sugarcane-smoked turkey, both served with all the sides from oyster dressings to a sweet potato hash. Lighten up with a fennel-apple salad, and conclude with sweet potato bread pudding or a traditional pecan pie.
